The patient is doing well! The surgery went well, and we just returned from the hospital after spending a few hours with her. She was her usual joking self [although she’s definitely been through a rough 48 hours], and enjoyed the lovely meal of saltines and ginger ale I fed her.
Karen wanted me to tell all of you females the following friendly PSA:
Should you experience any post-menopausal bleeding, please see your doctor ASAP!
After dinner, we walked to the hospital – a little over a mile. We both hate driving and parking garages, and a little cold and dark wasn’t going to stop us from using our manpower!
Talk about manpower – Matt wheeled Karen’s overnight suitcase the whole way!
I wore my Danskos so they’d get a little flashback to hospital life!
Before heading to the hospital at 8PM, we had a nice dinner –
Recently Matt declared that we do not use the crockpot enough. I agreed! When thinking of a recipe style I’d like to make, my mind kept drifting back to this Cranberry Crockpot Chicken with Kale. [Oh it’s so nice to have a recipe already written!]
The second time around it was just as good!!! We had another bottle of Tribal Moose Cranberry Sauce that the company sent me earlier this year to use, but you really could use any kind of BBQ sauce – one with apples or anything on the sweeter side would work.
Lurve cranberries. The chicken was tender. The kale chewy [I could have eaten twice that amount of kale!]. Brown rice nice and sticky.
Afternoon snack attack: pretzels and cinnamon almonds.
Time for a little reading and then, rest.
