Baby steps.

I cooked an entire meal tonight. By myself. This is important to me. I haven't cooked in six weeks, except to make salads and do prep work. I'm a little tired out, but it felt good.

I seem to have recovered my sense of taste. I had lunch downtown at a restaurant known for its pizzas. I had an amazing wood fired oven pizza. It was the best thing I'd eaten in six weeks. I still couldn't eat a lot, but that meant leftovers. And their pizzas are good cold.

I am dreading Monday. That's when I have to do the bowel prep for my colonoscopy. I actually have to get a hotel room in Richmond because there's no way I can do the prep at home and get down there so early in the morning. I'm not worried so much about the colonoscopy itself.

Glad you're feeling better. **big hugs**

As for the colonoscopy...I've had two within the past few years, and the prep is the worst thing about it. Without a doubt. Now that the gastroenterologist has finally figured out what is wrong (lymphocytic colitis), perhaps I won't have to go through it again for another 10 years, like normal people.

Good luck. :)

The best part of the colonoscopy is when you leave and can go get REAL FOOD again. [/been there]

I am seriously starting to hate lemon Jell-O and popsicles! I may break my "pizza only twice a month" rule and go back downtown for another one of those delicious gourmet pizzas when I'm done. I think I will have earned it!
