Restricted diet? What's this restricted diet I keep reading about on UOAA and colonclub?? My doc told me to eat whatever sounds good. I keep coming across people who ate toast and potatoes for weeks and weeks. I'm pretty glad to be eating my lentils and beans and general tso's tofu. I wonder if my surgeon is just more laid back than others or more progressive or what?
I went out today! Reese, Eli, my mom, and I went to the natural parenting store for my crafting and cooking group. It was soooooo nice to get out of the house, and it was sooooooo nice to get home to rest. Sitting was uncomfortable, even with the pillow I brought along. I had to break my No SweatPants Rule in public though. :( Sad face. I tried on three pairs of jeans before deciding that I'll revisit the jeans thing at another time. They all sit either right on the stoma or at some point that isn't comfortable. Boooooo. I told Eric last night that if I was a hoarder, we'd be golden because I'd still have my maternity pants (you know, instead of giving them away ages ago). My mom bought me a belly band today and I'm excited about that. If I'm going to do the jeans though, I might have to find a different brand. Low rise? Perhaps. I do have some low rise cords from ages ago that I have been hoarding just in case they fit someday (hahahahahahahahaha) because I love them. One of my friends altered her pants so they were bigger (adding fabric to the sides), and I would like to do that but it could be a while before I can sit in front of a sewing machine.
I was telling my mom too that if it was summer, I'd be all set with my skirts and shorts. Too bad winter in WI lasts the whole of your life (or so it seems).
If you have a favorite low rise pants brand, let me know! I'm just the tinest bit resistent to buying maternity pants because I don't want anyone to mistake me for pregnant. :)
