Slowly but Surely

I haven't quit cooking or disappeared from blogging, but about a week and a half ago I had an unexpected detour in my life. I had been sick for quite a while and had been to several doctors, but on this particular day my doctor sent me to the ER where they discovered that my lungs had multiple blood clots (pulmonary embolisms). This sent the ER doctors and nurses into a fury of activity. I spent five days hooked up to ICU being monitored while receiving shots and other various medicines.

Thanks to my wonderful husband who was willing to learn how to give me my injections in my stomach they allowed us to come home as long as he drove me back each day for daily lab work. I am on a very restricted schedule. I can't lift things. I can't do housework and have to be very careful not to get bumped or cut.

We are still unsure as to the cause of these PEs, but we are working on it. I intend to use this time to go through some of my cookbooks and find some of my tried and true recipes that I want to post for you guys.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Mine was amazing even in a hospital bed. My precious husband and sweet boys treated me amazing.

Be patient... I'll be back cooking up a storm... slowly but surely!
