Wishing all who celebrate the warmest, happiest Thanksgiving ever! May your family play nice, your plates be full and the kitchen fairies come clean for you!
Ernie baked bread this evening…check it out :-) It smells so yummy. I would love to dig in now, but I’ll wait till tomorrow. It may be in jeopordy for toast making though!
While he was baking, I cooked Spaghetti sauce (with garden tomatoes and shredded zucchini) for Friday’s dinner.
I baked 2 pumpkin pies with Mrs. Smith’s help for Thanksgiving dinner. I’ll whip cream to go on them in the AM. Just can’t get in the mood for messing with pies…I know, JudyL just disowned me as a friend! I promise, I will try to do better for Christmas! At least, we will be eating homemade pecan pies from our wonderful friend, Wanda. She brought pecan pies, fruit cake and a casserole when she came to pick us up on Monday!
Speaking of that…Ernie had his 2 week checkup in Dallas on Tuesday. Wanda drove us to/from Dallas. We stayed overnight and had a yummy dinner at Olive Garden.
The best news…ERNIE’S PATHOLOGY REPORTS SHOW ALL CLEAR!!!! Out of all the tissue samples and the 41 lymph nodes tested, there were NO CANCER CELLS!!! That means the surgery was successful. He’ll be doing routine scans to watch for any reccurence, but for now…He’s well! His incision is healing well and we’ll go back next Tuesday to have the catheter removed!!!
For us, this is a definite time of Thanksgiving. We are so blessed with family, friends, the roof over our heads, food for our bellies and our health. Ernie’s Mom’s cancer appears to be gone, Ernie’s cancer is gone and mine is being treated. It will be awhile before we know how effective the radiation treatment was, but I’m expecting to repeat that treatment in about 6 months before I get an all clear. Such a different outlook than what we were faced with in July. GOD does work miracles and answer prayers!!!
