We visited our primary care physician yesterday and he was amazed at the progress Mike has made since his surgery. He encouraged us try hard and keep Mike's weight up, especially as he begins his treatments. Mike was up a whole pound this morning.
Yesterday I experimented with a bread recipe and came up with 2 loaves with whole wheat flour oat flour and flax seed. It is okay, but has a much more crumbly texture than we like. It did make for a good piece of toast this morning. Mike is really liking steel cut oats with blueberries for breakfast. Who would have thought Mike could get off the Ding Dongs with such little effort!
Mike is in the office for a few hours this morning. This afternoon we are going to visit with some friends in Anderson who are also dealing with cancer. We hope we can all be uplifted by our visit. It looks like the United Way is going to get some of his time tomorrow :) Boredom is such a huge deal here! Did I tell you Mike made us a compost pile complete with fencing, etc. on Saturday? Yesterday his project was edging the drive. We also went out to Rotary Park to make sure things were looking good there since he hasn't been able to work out there for a few weeks. I think today we are also looking at getting some mulch for a back flower bed. Oh my, I am not sure I can keep up with it all!
