Fred Version 2.0
I have had the most wonderful day. Well, it actually started yesterday. I got home at 3:30 yesterday and spent from then until almost 9pm baking and cooking. I made chocolate covered cherry cupcakes with a chocolate glaze, from scratch fudge brownies (no box mix!), and french onion soup. The cupcakes and brownies went with Ryan and me to work today where it was gobbled up be happy coworkers. Here's the cupcakes:
Yummy, huh? The glaze was so good when it was still hot last night. Seriously, loved these cupcakes.
OK, now on to why this post is about the recently deceased Fred the Lymphnode. First, I should say all the lab results were good. There's nothing to be scared of from Fred. Poor guy! He could have stayed afterall! Anyway... Had the stitches out on Monday and they mentioned that one side of the thing was, um, oozing. Gross, huh? Not so much for me since I can't see it. Wanna see my tough girl scar?
Normal, right? But that night I noticed that I had a nasty bump all of a sudden. Then it got bigger. Its kinda hard and I'm looking a little like Frankenstein. You think I'm kidding? It looks like a weird-shaped bone trying to poke through my skin. Prepare yourself...
What do you think? Is it hard to tell from the picture? Anyway, its grossing my shit out. I hope I get to go see the doc tomorrow. I'd really like to just stop thinking about my neck.
OK, let's end this post on a good note. I forgot to tell you why I had a really good Valentine's day (besides all the baking). Ryan was working today, so instead of sitting home pouting over my aloneness, I drove myself down to the station and made dinner for the boys! It was so fun, and I ended up with 4 Valentine guys for the day! I made (with Ryan's help) Thai crab puffs and Thai pasta with spicy peanut sauce, chicken and veggies. It was DELICIOUS. I can't imagine a more awesome Valentine's Day.
Well, except the one 7 years ago when Ryan asked me to marry him. Most amazing day of my life...
