What do you do when you can't eat for a month?
|Chewy chocolate chip cookies!|
This is what I added to my big canvas of paint and paper scraps - I don't like anything too simple!
|Catch Me In The Rain|
|Clear low sugar drinks|
Wait, it gets better folks. I'm only allowed ONE LITER of clear fluid a day. I can guzzle that in an hour! It's 4:00pm and so far I've had one piece of gum and 8 ice cubes...
Art is my distraction right now. I can bury myself in my studio and not think about food or fistulas or anything.
|I really lose myself in my art sometimes. It's a great feeling.|
|A girl clutching onto two balloons with birds in them for hope|
|I found this tiny glass bottle with white cotton in it and got this idea of a girl sucking the clouds into this bottle.|
|I haven't finished it, but I think it will be precious.|
|And...back to the kitchen. These cookies were jam-packed with coconut, white chocolate chunks, golden raisins, walnuts, and rolled oats!|
|Banana walnut cinnamon pancakes made with chocolate milk!|
Well, it's a start. I'll be going back to it soon enough - I've got to keep myself busy for these four weeks!
|Where all dreams come true!!!|
On a positive note, I think my dad feels for me because during my 24th birthday week we are going to DISNEY WORLD!!!!! I won't be able to eat, but who cares when you can ride Splash Mountain 50,000 times? I'm really excited. It's a family tradition - we've gone 18 times to date, but not since 2005, when I got sick. Hopefully this will be a sign of good things to come...
