mastectomy ::
monday, i'm going to have a,b ,c + d removed.

if all goes well, i'll be in the hospital 3 or 4 days, then recooperating 4 weeks, until 6 weeks of daily radiation begins.

i'm not going to be able to use my right arm/hand for awhile because of the lymph node surgery, but if i'm not too looped from the pain medication, i know i'll be trying to post with my left hand asap.

thank you to everyone who takes a look at my blog + i really appreciate your comments + links. it's been a fun outlet + distraction during chemo + i've met a lot of very nice people.

gdiapers are a better option than cloth or paper. the linings are flushable + the pee ones are compostable. i hope they branch into adult diapers + sanitary napkins.

breastfeeding :: wikipedia + american association of pediatricians + world health organization

by ~mod*mom~ at 10.6.06 © 0 comments




parentingweb has breastfeeding basics, techniques, help +information for beginning breastfeeding.

american association of pediatrics recommends breastmilk for at least one year. the world health organization recommends at least 2 years. i breast fed mod*tot for 2 1/2 years + though it was very difficult for me, i hung in there because it was obvious it was the best thing to do for her physically + psychologically for her then + for the rest of her life.

swinging sixties :: book
"in april 1966, time famously touted london as the new world center of style. forty years later, this book reconsiders the roles played by designers like mary quant, celebrities like twiggy, boutiques like biba, photographers like david bailey, magazines, + filmmakers in promoting a new, more relaxed, more colorful way of dressing that reverberated around the world. illustrated with key pieces from the v + a's fashion collection plus contemporary photos, posters, + ephemera, the book relates fashion to the rapidly changing social, economic, + aesthetic context of the times, arguing for the central role it played not just on carnaby street, but in 60's pop culture.

swinging sixties ::
a new exhibition at the victoria + albert museum in london celebrates the revolutionary style of the 1960's (this is a courreges couture suit from 1964).

telegraph says, "the v&a's new 'sixties fashion' exhibition is a kaleidoscope of colour + buzz + youth + miniskirts + beatles + boutiques +ossie clark + celia birtwell prints - it's as bracing + bedazzling as it seemed at the time. it's difficult to explain the total shock of the totally new to people who are now in their twenties, thirties or forties."

exhibition runs until january 2007

the work of charles + ray eames :: a legacy of invention ::library of congress exhibition ::
"charles eames (1907-78) + ray eames (1912-88) gave shape to america's twentieth century. their lives + work represented the nation's defining social movements: the west coast's coming-of-age, the economy's shift from making goods to the producing information, + the global expansion of american culture. the eameses embraced the era's visionary concept of modern design as an agent of social change, elevating it to a national agenda. their evolution from furniture designers to cultural ambassadors demonstrated their boundless talents + the overlap of their interests with those of their country. in a rare era of shared objectives, the eameses partnered with the federal government + the country's top businesses to lead the charge to modernize postwar america."
