Here’s today’s pick. If you look closely you’ll see three kinds of eggplant, 3 kinds of squash, along with misc green peppers, tomatoes, and armenian cucumbers. We ate the thin, long purple eggplants cut up with some green pepper, onions, and with a ladle full of the newly minted spaghetti sauce. I honestly can’t tell the difference between the purple and green eggplants and once you peel them – they all look the same.
Yesterday was a big medical follow-up day. More blood tests and X-rays. I feel just fine (well almost fine) but get tired easily and still get a little dizzy if I bend over and straighten up too quickly. The blood tests results showed the level of hemo was up from a few days back but still low (10.2 now vs 9.8 Friday vs a normal 13); ditto the potassium- better but still low. Just keep popping iron, eating blood builders and get blood tests weekly until levels reach normal; bananas, potatoes, and orange juice for potassium. The X-ray tests were for the kidney stone issue and I won’t have any info on that until Wed afternoon although I did peek and spotted 3 stones hiding away in there. Looks like you could just scoop them out but I’m sure it’s much more complicated than that. I hope I don’t have to go through all this 3 more times. Maybe I’ll know by the end of the day.
George’s valve procedure has been pulled up to the 29th so he’s a happy camper. They told him the average hospital stay for this operation is 5 days.
