The Minnie Pant
J.Crew says if you buy one pant this season, it should be the Minnie. I have to agree. What a flattering cut! I bought my pair in black, but I'm heading back for gray and khaki.
Another Springtime ritual is that I have an ultrasound. I don't know if I've yet shared that I have endometriosis. I wouldn't be surprised if half my readers are now thinking, "Me too!", while the other half is thinking, "What's that?". I didn't know what it was either, but after discussing this with friends, I've found that its really common. A few of my friends also have it. In March of 2007, I had a laparoscopy to remove the endometriosis and ovarian cysts. My doctor told me it would come back (taking B.C. has slowed down the process), and it is.....with attitude! As I write this, I am experiencing some of the most severe cramps I've ever had. In fact, at 1:00 am I awoke to a sharp pain that lasted all night. Last week, I had an ultrasound, and my doctor found more cysts. We plan to wait out the summer and schedule another laparoscopy in the Fall. This isn't a really big deal. The procedure is quick, and I'd be back to normal in a day or two. The thing that freaks me out is that there is no cure for endometriosis. Taking B.C. only slows it down. I requested a book from another library that hasn't yet arrived called Endometriosis: A Key to Healing Through Nutrition. I'm hoping this book will help me to do more to control this irritating condition I have.
