I am home :) Arrived home sometime Monday.
I m feeling abit battered and bruised but in mostly good spritis.
My head is spinning with all that is still to come so I'm just taking everything very slowly. Though as usual my version of slow and my surgeons are slightly different. I had my knuckles wrapped yesterday so am slowing again.
In terms of surgery two more tumours were found in the left side that had grown since the pet scan two weeks ago. I knew about one - I had felt it and asked them to show me the spot on an ultra sound. The fourth was a surprise.
Yeterday I went back to my surgeon for a check up - he is not thrilled with how one side is knitting so I may have to go back in to get it sorted I will know Friday.
Tomorrow I meet with my haematologist and also go to have my port flushed they decided not to take it out.
Tuesday I am back to the onologoist - he wants to talk more options now that these latest tumors have appeared.
Trying tiring days. Wishing that time would pass quickly but also slowly.
I'm breaking my days down into manageable pieces and not looking back on the what I used to do. I'm not even thinking about what I might be able to do soon anymore.
Today lets talk about lentils.
I know - I always thought they were yucky LOL. But while in hospital I always choose the soup options because I love soup.
I chose a red lentil currry vegetable soup. I said to Richard this will be so yuck.
Boy was I wrong it was delciious and I could't wait to get home and make some.
So Monday night that is what I did. Here is a little picture visual for you but its not the soup lol
- You will need
- One cup red lentils ( not the tin ones )
- 3 stalks celery finely chopped

- 3 carrots finely chopped
- 1 red capscium finaly chopped
- 1 piece of kent pumpkin
- 2 litres of chicken stock or vegetable stock

In a large pot fry off the celery capsicum, garlic, carrots, corriander until they are just starting to soften - add in the pumpkin and curry powder
Rinse the lentils
