Some Great News

My days as a hacking social pariah may be over. For some unknown reason (alternate therapy?), my coughing significantly subsided today. I can't believe how much more energy I have when I'm not consumed with coughing up a lung.

With a controllable cough and respectable energy levels, I actually enjoyed my day of non-stop activities. I had a long lunch with friends in Old Pasadena, volunteered at the A3M (Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches) office in Little Tokyo, ran errands, picked up a dresser I purchased from Craigslist, ran more errands and right now I'm capping the day off at the Coffee Gallery in Altadena for hot chocolate and free WiFi.

I even had time for a hearty breakfast of eggs Florentine at home. You can read about how I like to take one dish - ground beef with spinach and mushrooms - and stretch it into three meals at Open Mouth, Insert Fork.

This IS great news.

I'm joking:
Maybe the improvement is due to your "therapeutic blog post!"

Wouldn't it be nice if blog posts really did cure coughs and cancer and whatever else ails our bodies and spirits? For sure, they can help us get through tough times.

With hope, Wendy

Oh, this is so cool. I'm going to fly over to your food post because I'll just bet you've put up a good meal.

I'm so glad to hear that your cough is receeding.
I loved the food post. Chris hates spinach unless I hide it in a parmasean roux. We call it spinach Chris since that's the only way he'll eat it.
I can't wait to try your recipe. :)

Yay! It's so odd the way one can improve suddenly. Years ago I had pneumonia and was sick for about 3 months. Then, suddenly, one day I woke up feeling better and, somehow, I was absolutely certain I was better (no reason, just happened that way) and, sure enough, it was true. It made no sense at all. It sounds like you're experiencing the same phenomenon. It's about time!

So glad you are losing your bad cough and getting your energy back. Going to check out the recipe for the Eggs Florentine and make some myself. Take care. Barbara
