Today is ASCT +46. It is also the first Sunday in Advent and the day for our healing service at Saint Andrew’s.
Last Wednesday, I met with Krishna and Pepita for my weekly follow up visit. Basically, I now have permission to eat fresh vegetables that I know have been washed well and eat out at restaurants where I can trust the food. I also have permission to return to work full time. I may still do part time this week and go to full time the following week.
I do still feel stronger each day. It really is true (up to a point that I am careful not to cross – Thanksgiving was an exception) that the more effort I put into a day, the more energy I have for the next day. We had Greg and Vera over for dinner on Thanksgiving. We did our turkey Julia Child style by cutting the turkey into 2 legs and thighs, and 1 piece with both sides of the breast. The breast was brined and started ahead of the rest. It all turned out very well with the breast very tender and juicy. Kathleen and I did all the cutting and prep work on Wednesday night and the cooking Thursday.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing and thank you for the healing received by those we pray for, Pia, Irene, Herma, Berris, Sylvia, Nicola, Mike, and Joe.
