The Sweet Wee Things...


Today I managed, what at this point in my treatment, is nothing short of a feat!

Not only did I cook up one hella scrumptious lunch of fat little fabulous sauteed scallops, (something I haven't treated myself to in many moons, a sodium splurge, I know), red peppers and Basmati for myself and P, but I ate all, (and with a wee beer too!), WITHOUT having to lie down after!  Add to that already blissfully normal thing, I topped it all off with even doing the dishes too!

Yes, dear Readers, I haven't done such a regular-person type o' thing since before being hospitalized last January.

That's a lonnnnnng-ass time.

Long enough to merit taking good note, as it's oh so important to celebrate these precious pieces of progress.

To think that such things were once an everyday occurrence, taken for granted and now, something truly worth blogging home about. 

Too bad I didn't get a pic of this yummo feast but alas, I was hungry like the wolf while cooking and the plating was therefore none too artistic.

In place of a foody pic, I offer the above serene morning scene I captured today at the frosty entrance of my favo park to walk Tony in.  The weather this winter so far has been fantastic.

Today's giant steps, (for me ; ),  are thanks in no small way I'm sure, to my choosing and my Neph giving me the green light, to NOT wean down by another painful milligram of Prednisone for the month of December.  I wanted me a peaceful, ache-free and way less fatigued Christmas, dammit.  The best prezzy I can think of giving myself--ability.

So voila, HAD to share this wee slice o' joy from Juan Land today.

Wishing you all a nice weekend with the ones you love...

This is wonderful news, and I am so glad that the decision was made to leave things alone for December. It will be lovely for you to have a happy, peaceful Christmas. Much love and continued healing to you! (((HUGS)))

Merci beaucoup, FMD,

One more mean-wean to go and then, hopefully, a whole year of much more normality like the day I had yesterday.

Hope you have some lovely holidays this season too, Friend...

(((hugs back))),
