Hair today... gone tomorrow?

Well, some good news on the cancer front. Hair has started to grow back on my head. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for me. I don't know if I will have more chemo ahead of me, more tests are to be assumed, and at this point I don't know about the surgery either. I do know I have a appointment to talk to the surgeon tomorrow afternoon, so that will be nice to keep moving forwards in regards to my health and healing.

It's been a while now since I have had chemo so I am starting to feel pretty good. I feel like I can actually enjoy doing things that cause me to get a little tired because they aren't going to deplete me of all sorts of energy.

RE: Frying: The other day I mentioned I had a desire to fry something, and as I was searching the internet for a recipe for doughnuts I came across something better that could be fried. An apple fritter. Apple fritters are better for frying and covering in a sugary glaze because they contain apples and are thus healthier for you than regular doughnuts. (Which do not contain apples) Even though eating an apple fritter probably isn't healthier for you than eating an apple and then downing a couple packets of sugar, I enjoy them all rolled together into one (the Apple Fritter) vs separate and optional. (IE: The bags of sugar with your apple)

In the cooking vein Thursday I will also be cooking dinner (yay!) and have settled upon a red beans and rice recipe that I found in the "New Best Recipes" tome cookbook we have. It looks like a good recipe except it seemed a little short on the meat so I'll be dialing that up a bit and hopefully no one will mind. I'll probably say a word or two on how that went along with how the surgeon's visit went.

Also I'd like to give a big shout out to everyone who has brought us meals over the past 6 months. It's been a REALLY big help to us. We've gotten some great food from all of you. A big thanks. It makes me think we should try and invite people over/ eat at other people's houses more often, I think we need to share the joys of a home cooked/ secret recipe meal more often. I think some of you have been hiding your cooking ability. Also all the food that has been provided has helped us realize what a great thing it is and would like to help other people some day when I am feeling better with a similar ministry.

Now I must go and get Lisa. It's one of the fun things of having only 1 car these days, I get to drop Lisa off in the morning and pick her up in the evening.

Thanks for your prayers, I will keep you all informed as to how things are going after I meet with the surgeon tomorrow!
