Hi guy's, weekly blood work today, I'm feeling horrible like usual at this time, I'm a little nervous about my red cells, I just do not want to turn anemic, bad enough my white counts are always below one! Having trouble breathing and getting dizzy, which are all signs off low red blood counts..... hey what can you do except keep plugging along....... Vinny

Hi Vinny,
Sorry to hear that your counts are so low. The best thing to do is rest rest rest. I am sure that you are already. Keep your positive attitude, and when your strength returns how about making a yummy dessert.....
Smile, today is Wednesday

Hi Vinny,
Wow that sounds so good right now. I do need to ask, what is a cheddar bay biscuit?Yesterday when I got home from the hosp. I was so hungry ,didn't eat for 10 hours. I had yogurt and potato pancakes. Wish I had some of your gumbo. That would have been perfect.
BTW I did not have the pet/ct yesterday. The Dr messed up the orders. So I go back tomorrow morning. At least I don't have to go all day with out eating. Tomorrow
I am hoping to spend the afternoon with the family in the city. Maybe go to Chinatown for dinner. Hopefully I will be up for that. The grandkids really want me to go. So does my husband.
All your cooking really inspires me....
Lisha

LOL Hope all goes will today for you.... as for the biscuits, they are like the ones you get at Red Lobster... I make them with Old Bay Seasoning, and cheddar. They came out soooo goooood! hahahaha
