Getting myself all wound up and anxious for the next heart test this afternoon.

Is that a requirement? Here I thought they just made you run on a treadmill.
Seriously though, isn't this the one you get to sleep through? It will be a breeze! You'll have the prayers and good wishes of so many of us here you'll float on angel wings. {{{{{PF}}}}}

I'm giggling about my breakfast choices (coffee x2, tomato juice, mars bar cupcake and leftover salad) and thinking I'm probably going to be featured in today's edition of the weird breakfast choices blog. I'm going to spend some quality time out on my deck soaking in all the sunshine I can. All too soon it will be winter again and my vitamin D level will plummet!

Don't worry, you'll ace this test.

Now what would you say if it was me? Well, that advice goes for you also. Calm down. Everything is going to be all right. I have been through all of the tests including a cath and a quint bypass. And I am still here for the sole purpose of worrying about you. And you know that isn't good for me. You are going to do just fine. Just like I did.

I just finished a couple of projects I started over the weekend. The biggie was making stock. I made multiple meat stock ... that is to say, I had the carcass of a chicken, a couple of pork steak bones, one huge bone from a porterhouse. To that I added two big packages of marrow bones, carrots, celery, onions and garlic. All the raw bones I roasted for a couple of hours. Popped the marrow into a bowl and gave to husband with some good bread for lunch (he was in heaven!). I strained last night and left overnight in the fridge so I could take off the fat. So that's what I did today, dealt with the fat and made up 4 quarts of mixed meat stock. Husband nuked some to see how it tasted .... wow. Great. I don't salt my stock until I use it, but it is very tasty already.

What a mess, though. Have been cleaning the kitchen over and over and over again!

Addie, you are awesome! PF, listen to her - you will be fine (but you have my love, hugs, thoughts prayers too!)

Wow Claire. You sure has been one busy lady. I wish I could get back into the cooking mood. I have to bake two apple pies and I keep stalling. And I want to make a big pan of Mac and Cheese for this weekend.

Friday, my daughter is going to have the staples removed and she is scared. I am going to ask her if she wants me to go with her. I think it might help since I have had staples a few times myself. I wish my youngest son would go with her. He can talk to her doctors again. They will have the pathology report by then.

I just had a brainstorm. My girlfriend's ex-husband is up here from Atlanta also to get his radiation treatment at Mass. Gen Hosp. The same hospital my daughter goes to. I think I will ask him to join us for the party in her yard. He has his wife with him. I will have to ask my daughter first. This is the man I baked a cake for and he had no idea who did it until my girlfriend told him. We have never talked or even met.

Addie, I will keep your daughter in my thoughts and prayers as she gets both the results and the staples removed. And you are always in them (thoughts and prayers).

Addie, we're thinking positive thoughts for your daughter.
