Okay, so I started the day STARVING as usual, so I made some pancakes for my brothers on the crepe-maker - love that thing!
|And also baked some Pumpkin Coconut Bread|
|I added a bit more to my still life...|
When the hunger cues got really bad, we went to the mall for a distraction. Like I said, everyday has to be a marathon from thing to thing. The second I'm not doing anything, I get hungry and sad. But the Disney sculptures in Hallmark made me optimistic!
|It's the little things that give me joy in times like these.|
|Matt met me in the mall and was rockin' it at the toy store!|
|And of course, I had to be hooked up to TPN in the middle of the mall!|
|This morning was really tough, so I went right to the kitchen to make eggs for mom.|
|So I turned the rest of the batter into pancakes - hey, you gotta improvise!|
|Still hungry, I baked brownies...why torture myself, you ask? I don't know!|
|I also wrote my mom a card, motivating us to get through all this crap.|
What can I say? Every day is a struggle to deny myself food and drink. Yesterday I got by on 2 pieces of gum, 1 jello, and 2 ice cubes. I just keep telling myself this is to starve my fistulas, not myself, and in less than four weeks, I'll be eating again. Nothing lasts forever. Stay strong.
