Visiting with Family

Yesterday D and I went over to my sister’s place for Christmas dinner. My major preoccupation is to do whatever it takes so I don’t have any stomach or bathroom issues. And make sure I’m alert enough to take part in conversation and to be sociable.

I started off yesterday with white bread for breakfast. Then I did my blog and got it ready to auto post at 11:30. Then I had shower, got dressed and organized myself. I did this all early enough to have an hr nap before we left. My sleep it still not up to par and having a good little nap, I’ll have enough energy to make it through the day.

So at my sister’s place, when it came time to sit down and eat, I chose white turkey meat, one meat ball, a small piece of ham and some mashed potatoes. I decided it was best to take two Imodium after just a couple of mouthfuls. I only ate about half of what I put on my plate because, it’s best that I quit eating as soon as I get the slightest feeling of being full. It must have been the right amount because I was able to stay out of the bathroom till this morning. After dinner, I politely said no to any drinks and just sipped on water.

Today is another dinner at my other sisters house … I plan to get ready the same way too.

I'm glad you had a nice visit and could be "normal" if only for a little while. Merry Christmas, Daria- Hope you have another pleasant dinner with your sis. I wish I were so lucky.

Sounds like you do a great job of managing and planning. When I've had a lot of stomach issues, I haven't been so good at thinking ahead. One time on the way to the doctor I threw up in my son's car and hadn't thought to bring a good "throw up" bag. I reached for the only thing that was handy...and threw up into a bag that had holes in it! He hasn't quite let me live it down.
