Back in the Kitchen

I usually judge my treatment recovery by when I feel ready to return to the kitchen and prepare a meal. Well, after weeks of having good friends prepare meals for me, I finally hit the kitchen last Monday. The meal wasn't fancy but it was a good feeling to be hovering over the stove top again. My dear friend, Deirdre, arrived from the Philadelphia area earlier in the day. I decided I would prepare dinner with her assistance. We fixed tilapia in a lemon butter sauce, and green beans. Simple, but tasty. And a major accomplishment in a long road to recovery.

Slow Return

The month of January has been a blur, more like a blur in slow motion. After the first two weeks in the research trail at Moffitt including an extra week trying to get some of my results stabilized, I spent the rest of January resting, (as in sleeping) and just laying around the condo. I am finally starting to increase my activity level (not a lot) and eating much better. The appetite that had totally disappeared in January is finally returning. Obviously I must be feeling better if I am blogging again... unfortunately nothing interesting yet. So that is my update for now. 

I would also direct your attention (and mouse) to "Paul & Libby's World of Travel" on the right side bar. They depart on another cruise journey, this time to South America and Antarctica,, this time with their 1 year old daughter. Paul's blogs are always interesting and fun to read. Take a look.
