Girls Write Out
Tuesday, February 09, 2010

You all know we're here at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. I'm rooming with Di. Jim is sick so I'm sharing a bed with Di and Jim is in the twin bed. I've always wondered about those sleep apnea machines. I will say that the sound of it is conducive to sleep. :-)

Anyway, I knew Di had a sweet tooth. But she's always told me she loves vegetables. What she failed to tell me is that love of vegetables is very selective. All these years I was imagining her partaking of lots of broccoli, asparagus, all kinds of tasty veggies. We're in the cafeteria and I offer to pick out her food and asked her what kind of available vegetables she wanted. My jaw dropped when she said anything except something weird like asparagus. Hello? Since when is asparagus a weird vegetable? And how could my veggie loving friend turn her nose up at it? Her nutrition education needs a college degree! I'm going to have to take her in hand and get her healthy. Iceberg lettuce, her favorite thing since she loves salads, is not nutritious!

One great thing about this hospital is the food is FABULOUS! It's all organic and totally tasty. Not a good thing for my diet, I might add. But this is a good place for her to learn about how eat healthy stuff. And I'm just the mom to make her do it.

Keep praying! Another dr appt shortly, then surgery tomorrow. We so love you guys who are holding us up to the Lord!

You eat the chocolate Di! Don't let her bully you. Asparagus is good with mayo on it. : ) Of course, what isn't?

See if they have any organic chocolate and be happy. You can't eat past midnight tonight, right? And asparagus isn't going to fill you up for tomorrow. : )

For the record, I don't care for asparagus either. :)

Praying for you all. God is faithful!

I'm good with asparagus, but before surgery, all bets are off. Something like Mocha Mud Pie might do the trick, though. :) Love you ladies!! Many prayers, and often....

Will not stop praying for a miracle.

For the record I really love asparagus, but then again I love most veggies. My boys think I am a vegetarian but I am not I still like meat.

Be well and keep us updated on the surgery tomorrow.

Now I never liked the asparagus I had growing up - out of a can! Eek! But freshly steamed or roasted where it's a tad crunchy with shredded parmesan and a drizzle of balsamic is heavenly.

Of course one can never go wrong with dark chocolate either. ;) You both look beautiful.

Aren't you famous for Christmas music in July? My girls are watching The Wiggles Christmas and Silent Night is on....

So, as well as Wishing You a Merry Christmas, I also pray for you tonight a

Silent night, holy night
with all things calm, all things bright. I pray your thoughts will stay centered on the Child grew Savior, and I pray you will truly sleep in heavenly peace this evening. May the angels sing over you this evening as they did that evening long ago, and may your heart hear it as a resounding song of love.

Love you,

PS: I WANT to like asparagus, I really do. The best I can do is polite toleration. But give me a good green bean or sweet corn ... even honey glazed carrots any day. Doesn't that qualify for liking our veggies?

I'll have you know I didn't force one bite of asparagus down that girl! LOL I even offered to get her organic chocolate but she didn't want it. I would have eaten it for her, but there's this whole diet thing. . . LOL

Sorry, but I'm with Denise: Asparagus is weird.

Am praying and praying! The background in the picture looks so restful and pretty. Hope that is, in fact, what the treatment center is like!

I'm rootin' for you Colleen! Get her to try squash, mushrooms and avacado too while you're at it! ;-)

Thank you so much for being there with her!
