06 Jul For the Love of Friends and Food
There’s nothing better than enjoying some great food with some amazing friends.
Tonight I had the pleasure of spending my evening with two of my friends Kaitlin and Lauren. We cooked, we drank, we ate, we laughed, and had an amazing night.
It’s nights like these I am extremely grateful for my ostomy.
Without it…well… I’d be dead. BUT, theoretically, I would still be sick, isolated, alone, and worst of all, on bowel rest! (Aka the dreaded “no-food diet”.)
Nothing was worse than being stuck in the hospital for weeks on end and being told I was not allowed to have ANY food pass through my GI track. I was hooked up to intravenous food sources and told that ice chips would make the hunger go away. Yeah right.
It is amazing how many fast food commercials you notice on television when you are going mentally insane from starvation.
Enjoying white wine, bruschetta, salad, pasta with avocado sauce, fruit, and cinnamon buns really makes you appreciate the little bag that made it all possible.
Having amazing company to compliment the food is just a bonus.
