I am working hard at staying calm and carrying on as my body decides what plumbing arrangement it will choose. Will there be two exits or one? Will I have to wear one bag or two? It is not the most comfortable place and I also find myself more and more in acceptance of the lack of control I have over what will happen. I'm sure moments of frustration will come and I am bound and determined for them to be moments and not weeks or months.
At the same time it is a visually curious process to watch as the tissue at each hole changes in both height and diameter on a daily basis. Yesterday I started on clear fluids. I will see how my body responds to this and hopefully keep calm and carry on :)
