We celebrated Sophie's birthday with her and Frank at their barbecue. I enjoyed grilled vegetables and chicken, my first actual food and not a supplement, since before the hospital. Yesterday, my stomach was still a little queasy, so I had taken it easy and eaten very lightly. Today, was a different story and I savored every bite of grilled squash, eggplant, onion, and zucchini. I wish I could have eaten the raw vegetable kabobs, but I still can't eat raw veggies or fruits. Mike also enjoyed torturing me with his mozzarella caprese: tomato, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. That is something I think I will enjoy as soon as the doctors give me the green light. I just need to choose the restaurant!
I can feel my energy level increasing and hope tomorrow will be a really good day. I spent today cleaning up our room and emptying out our bags from the hospital. We're in the hospital so often that we end up leaving things around the house. When we returned from the hospital this time, I was surprised that we had left the house in such disarray. I've also got some laundry to do tomorrow, while I have the energy. I also need to head to NIH for my twice-weekly phlebotomy visit. A friend suggested that I could end up in the hospital, so maybe I need to get my blood drawn and RUN so they don't keep me this time!
Two more days until Gina arrives-WOO HOO! or as they say in Texas-YEE HAW!
