Thursday is, of course, Poker Night for Lou, so I made plans for my good friend, Barbara, to come to dinner and hang out with me.
I was TIRED (but not in pain) when she arrived close to 6:00pm.
The menu was seared salmon and French green beans from the Kitchen Miracle (or Miracle Kitchen?) dinner service.
Meredyth and other friends from work sent me dinners weeks ago, and so we are finally eating them. Yesterday I had soup that blew my mind. Tonight, the salmon was very very good. Can't wait to try the other items soon.
Barbara did all the work, while I called out general instructions from my perch on the couch.
And she cleaned up the mess afterward!
We had a nice heart-to-heart about what's going on with me. I met Barbara soon after arriving in North Carolina in August 2006. Her friendship has meant a lot to me.
We also talked about how there is no "Best If Used By" date stamped on my foot --- that I have no idea how long this will last.
I am supposed to pay attention to how I feel today, and then do whatever I can handle or whatever I would enjoy today. I guess you could say I am living my life "one day at a time."
Right before 8pm, Barbara helped me put clean sheets on my bed, because it's too hard to do alone. Thanks so much!!!
I got a huge hug, and she left, and I immediately popped into bed and fell asleep.
Sure, I woke up a little while ago, but now that I have had this chance to update you, I'm sure I'll fall right back to sleep... maybe right after I check WWF.
