I have to do something about all that meat I thawed for the tourtière. I'm going to make the filling, cook it, and refrigerate it. I am taking it easy and doing this in little steps. I won't bother making the crust today. Right now I'm soaking some potatoes so I can scrub all the mud off of them. They go in the tourtière.

If I don't feel more energetic by the day after tomorrow, I'll reheat the filling and then freeze it. Heck, maybe I should just freeze it today.
Just put it in the freezer and wait until you get over the plague to mess with it. The Ogress has ordered you to go to bed. Go, minion, and rest!

I hope you feel better real soon, Taxy.

With love,
~Cat

I'm hanging out on the Chesterfield with my duvet, and my cat nearby. I'm taking naps.

And thanks Rocket, GG, and Cat for the well wishes.

Sorry, nurse took over! I also hope you feel better soon. With both you and Stirling down...you don't have anyone to help out.

That's okay and appreciated. But I'm not going to try to sleep in the same room as Stirling until he quits "honking". It's some better today, but he coughs really loud.

Nope, you both need your rest, in separate rooms if need be.

I'm ripping my new CD collection to the computer. Then to my MP3 player to take to the hospital with me.

Decided I HAD to go to the candle-light service at our church last night. It is about half way between our major hospital (where I was the previous two times) and a small community hospital. Sure enough, just after the service ended my pain shot up to a 10 and my pain med didn't even touch it.

Turns out the small hospital has been cut on it's surgery even more than the big one. The doctor ran all the same tests and agreed on the diagnosis and said all he could do was give me more morphine and send me home to wait for the surgeon's referral. I finally lost it. I screamed at him, said no one in the medical field and those that make up these rules and budges knows what someone with chronic pain deals with and then with an acute pain on top of it. I wanted to leave right then and there (I do not want morphine thank you very much. They did the tests as I mentioned and at least I got a second opinion that this is the correct diagnosis. He said if there was infection they would keep me in until they could get a surgeon (probably Friday but could be Monday). But there was no infection.

He talked me into a morphine shot and we went home. This was 2 am. We brought in Christmas in a hospital ER. I slept until 10 am and then from 3 to 9 pm. And I have been able to manage the pain as chronic now I know it is gallbladder and a solution is in the future.

I know this isn't the thread, but my Christmas dinner was an apple!

I started to come down with a cold on Christmas eve, and it was full blown by morning. I got through the day. My husband told me not to tell anyone I was sick, but how could they not tell? My SIL came and she was even sicker than I am, so between the two of us we probably made the whole family sick. But we all had a good time and lots of food and drink.

Tax lady, I hope you and Sterling feel better!

And you too, LP Beier. It's always comforting knowing there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but in the meantime, I hope you are able to manage the pain.

Laurie and Carol, I'm so sorry you were unwell for the holiday. I hope you're both able to get some relief and rest today.
