Slowly but surely

Tim is healing up slowly but surely. He's still pretty sore but that makes sense when you have a big ol incision in your belly with 13 staples. I think he has a new respect for all you mommies out there that have had c-sections.

I have to admit that I have enjoyed being home with him every day. I'm working from home this week. It's been so awesome to be here in the morning to get Blake ready and walk him to school. It does make my heart ache as it reminds me of all that I miss. Him with his cute little back pack and seeing his excitement when he sees all his friends. I know it's a small thing but it means a lot to me.

Anywho, I'll stop sniveling now. No news from the doctor. The week has gone by quickly though. So much to do, so little time. I've cooking now for the last 2 1/2 weeks every night. We haven't gone out to dinner once. This is big news in our world. We used to eat out on average 3 times a week. We're trying to turn over a new leaf and I mean that quite literally. Lots of green veggies going on at this house and only lean meats and fish. We bought a George Forman grill and he and I have been bonding. Tim is usually the cook in our family but I've taken over for a time. If you have any great low fat ways to cook fish, pork loin or chicken please share. We're trying to stay away from noodles and rice right now.

how do you feel about using a tbs. or so of brandy in a recipe?I have the best chicken Diane recipe...It is so awesome!

Slow but surely is a very good thing. My husband has worked a lot from home the past year and I think I'll go into shock if/when he takes a job out of the home!

The healing process is slow. I remember a talk Elder Hales gave some years ago in Conference where he talked about the healing process and how pondering was a very important element in the healing of body and soul. (When I was recovering from a hysterectomy that talk really helped me ; )

I loved your comment about seeing Blake with his little backpack and the smile on his face when he sees his friends. That brings such great memories of when my children were little. Enjoy.

Great job on the cooking. Lots of great websites with recipes out there for low-fat cooking.

Hugs to you both and continued prayers.

I've been wondering how you guys are doing! I have the book in my car, I'll drop it by today. It's great that you savor those little moments with Blake. Too often we moms are so busy we don't enjoy these precious times.

grilling salmon on a cedar plank is the best. I know it's not summer time, but it's the only way we like it! Tell Tim good luck with recovery. He's in our thoughts and prayers!

I'm glad to hear things are going well. I was near your house today and wondered how you were doing so I'm glad about the update.

13 staples? That sounds painful!

I'm glad you've been able to enjoy having special time with cute Blake! :)

Good for you, doing lots of cooking and eating so healthy! It seems like the longer you eat healthy foods, the better they taste, and the less you desire to eat the junk. I wish I could be helpful with recipes...I'm not much of a cook.

Hang in there, my sweet friend! :)

So how is Tim doing now? I've been thinking about you guys. Any ideas on when you'll get the results from the test?

Glad to hear he is healing well! I can empathize... Baby Girl was a c-section. Blech!
As for recipes...I'm not much help. I usually head to to look for something new. I think they have a healthy cooking area on there... good luck!!
