Last Tuesday was my one month post operation mark. We celebrated by going to the nicest restaurant in Northern Michigan, Aerie. (Sorry for the poor picture, that is what I get for letting the waiter take it.) This meal was the first time I ventured out of my "safety foods". I even had a glass of wine. The dinner did go right through me and and that caused some dehydration, but it was delicious! I had the fusilli, ti colored cork screw pasta with sundried tomatoes and spinach in a gorgonzola cream sauce. Hmmm, so good. It is good to now know that I can a special occasion meal every once in a while and I just need to be prepared for emptying the bag often and re-hydrating.
It feels good to be home. Even if I am home alone, damn Chrysler. Later I have an appointment with my Stoma Nurse. I have developed some sores around my stoma. I hope there is an easy solution for them, they are starting to become very uncomfortable. Then on Tuesday I have a post-op visit with my Surgeon. I am oddly very excited for this. I think I just want to hear that I am progressing normally and maybe getting an idea of when to expect the second surgery.
Hopefully, now that I am home I will resume to my normal blogging schedule. I was just uninspired to write while I was at the cottage. One more thing, all my posts will not always be so upbeat especially while learning to live colonless and accepting my future with FAP. I am human, my emotions range from being very happy to being melancholy. I am sorry if anyone doesn't like to "hear" from me when I am anything but happy, but that is life. If a post starts to go in a direction that you don't like, then stop reading. I cannot be held responsible for your emotions after reading. Thanks.
