The first thing I want to tell you as you start to read this is that I'm feeling fine and doing well. I'm home recuperating from surgery I had last Monday, November tenth, to remove a cyst on my liver. (Those of you who actually know me, please don't freak out.) I was going to wait until I was completely back to normal and just get back into writing - to avoid being a drama queen - but a few of you have written to see if I'm well since you haven't heard from me for two months.
So the answer is after I very reluctantly went to the E.R. with abdominal pain the end of August, I had a bunch of tests to figure out what what wrong, and then when that was figured out, what to do about it. I also stayed very busy at work so I could get caught up enough that I wouldn't worry while I stayed home to rest and get better.
The bottom line is I'm doing very well - even better than I had dared to hope. With Obama being elected and my surgery being successful, I would have to say it's been a great two weeks.
I do have things I have cooked that I haven't had a chance to tell you about, but, to be honest. I was enough off my feed the past few days that writing about food was just not at the top of my list. I plan to start posting once a week again starting next week. I'm sticking with Zuni; I hope you'll stick with me.
