You would think our house could not possibly be so dirty, but trust me when I say I have not deep cleaned or vacuumed in months. The windows needed washing, screens put back into the windows, etc. Every day that Katy feels good is an opportunity to hit the “to do” list hard. Today we cleaned more closets, hauled trash, and enjoyed listening to the dramatic presentation of At Home In Mitford while doing it.
Lately I’ve heard Katy answer the question, “How are you Katy?” in a new way. She’ll say, “very well at present.” Or, “not too well at present.” That is a good answer because her condition can change so fast. Just because a day starts out painful and tearful doesn’t mean it will remain that way. And for that we are very thankful. We are thankful for every good moment. As we work we have so much fun talking about some of the adventures we had over the past year and what we’ve learned. I love these days. I’m happy to report the bananas are still just what the Great Physician ordered and they are still working well, along with another timed-released magnesium supplement that her doctor found for her. We have so much to be grateful for. Here is a breakfast smoothy recipe that I have found to be refreshing for Katy in the morning. Enjoy one yourself!
In a blender, toss in 1 small banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup lactose free ice cream (or plain vanilla)
1/4 cup soy milk or regular milk
Blend until smooth and creamy. YUM!Comments:
