CC started the morning off by making delicious lemon poppy seed muffins...
That girl can really bake! She is such a huge help and a really good girl... She is such a blessing!
We each made us a cup of coffee and then dug in on those muffins!!!
We pretty much laid around and did a whole lot of nothing the rest of the day. I took out my new Italian cookbook I bought at Dillard's a couple of months ago and started reading through it. It's funny how fast your life can change and the things you once really enjoyed doing and looked forward to doing mean absolutely nothing anymore.
Last night the girls and I were watching Bridesmaid's. Mom slept on the sofa. I think Emil called, so we paused the movie and while talking to him I started making a Bananas Foster Bundt Cake.
Melted almost 1/2 cup of butter in the bottom of a greased Bundt pan then sprinkled brown sugar over that...
I then sliced one large banana and placed the slices on the bottom of the pan. Next I sprinkled half a bag of pecan pieces over the bananas.
Mom woke up a couple of times and asked if the salmon was ready. I had it marinated so I took out a piece, placed it in foil with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and tarragon,salt and pepper. I made a little pouch and threw it in the oven. She loved it!
By the time her salmon was finished, so was my cake...it was really delicious! Of course CC and I made coffee to have with our cake, Lena had hot tea.
I'm doing better with giving Mom her lovanox shots. I didn't hurt her yesterday morning. Last night might have pinched a bit. James said I'm doing good. We also heard her bottom left lung is opening up...so that's wonderful! Her port will be placed early next week and her PET scan next Thursday I think. Her first round of chemo will be the following week. We are scared, worried and nervous but we are also ready to get treatment started.
I have lots to catch up on and am only off being private for the weekend. I might be crazy and participate in Pink Saturday. I'm trying to make myself do things I used to enjoy doing. It's not easy. But I think it's necessary to help us find a new normal.
