It’s gone. There’s not one single piece of this left. I’m so not kidding! They asked me to make another one. Can you believe that?

The day had already started out really bad. I had to do this test that required me to take a steroid pill, just a small dose, like 1 mg or something, right before bed! People, it kept me up ALL NIGHT. I tossed, I turned, I thought I was going to die from the heat, even though it was in the upper 60’s in my house. Then….I get up at 645. I had to get Coop ready for school. I leave my house about 830 to go to the hospital to take my test. Bloodwork had to be done by 9am. Little did I know I get there and there’s a WHOLE WAITING room full of people! It was 9am when they finally registered me. I run as fast as I can without killing others to get to the lab. The guy finally gets out there…and he’s like it’s after 9, I don’t know if you should do it. I’m so angry at this point. I didn’t know what else to do, so I called the dr’s office and asked what I should do. He said to go ahead and do it. So I did. HONESTLY….the guy was rough. He hurt my arm because he jerked the needle out. Hubby and I joked it was pay back because I was annoyed with him. After I finished that, I had an appointment with a nutritionist.

That went great. I learned SO much about food. I thought I fed my family healthy meals, and for the most part I do, but I wasn’t feeding them enough food to sustain them. I didn’t have any idea. I felt horrible. It’s hard though. My son has grown so quickly. He’s 5 ft 6 and barely 12 years old. How that happened, I don’t know…I just thought he was eating too much food. He would ask for snacks every day after school and I thought no he doesn’t need one, he can wait for dinner. Turns out that’s not correct either. It’s crazy, I couldn’t win! I’ll tell ya’ll more about that appointment later on. I learned some cool things. The best thing is, I don’t have to not eat things, I regularly eat!

I decided we’re going to start on this now….so here we are- this is what’s for dinner.

1 pork loin

salt and pepper

Pineapple

3 tablespoons orange marmalade

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper.  Brush with pineapple and 2 tablespoons of marmalade. Grill until cooked through.

Note: I didn’t grill. I browned mine in a pan and then put it in the oven. I then brushed it with the marinade regularly.

Note 2: Be liberal with the salt and pepper.

  1. Sounds like a ruff night and day Heather! That guy at the lab probably thought that he would get a little break and then you ruined his plans by calling your doctor. Did he jab the needle in? I have had my blood taken soooooo many times since I was diagnosed with ALS, I don’t think I could possibly count how many times. It still gets me every time though! I can’t look or I will pass out! lol I once had a nurse who could not find a vein so she kept jabbing the needle in and out. Even my Aunt Paul almost passed out and we had to say stop! Get another nurse! lol I hope you are well my friend. xo
