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.

Better everyday. Cooked an easy salmon dinner tonight. First one since the tilapia. All my helpers are gone now, so i have to start fending for myself. Frank will be over for part of the weekend. I am driving again, and trying to build my strength.

I got some great news yesterday on the MRI results - while there are still a couple small tumors in the brain, they continue to decrease in size, and no new ones. The CT scan isn't scheduled until next Wednesday so I won't know about the rest of the body until then, but I am expecting similar results. I'll post something or send an email blast once I have all the results.

Thanks for checking
