Uncle NED! I hope he likes polenta, sweet potatoes, and green beans, 'cause it's what's on the menu.

Next appointment in six months, CT and chest x-ray (We'll look at type of contrast and premedicating). Woot! 


PS I'm setting the table with the "You Are Special Today" plates. Which reminds me: You folks who read the forums, post on the forum, send good thoughts, remember CSN folks in your prayers - You're all special, too (today and every day).

Congratulations, Jerzy.  I've never tried polenta; sounds interesting though.  Enjoy!

Hi Jerzy,

I will celebrate your NED over breakfast. Mine will be a kind of stir fry with some chopped liver.

Do you really have plates with 'You Are Special' printed on them? Mine only say 'Microwave Safe'.  They go with my 'Gamma Ray Safe' tinfoil party hats.

Red "You are special today" plate

On the back it says, "The Original Red Plate Company, California USA, ©1979." I've got two, both bought in thrift shops at different times. I use them when it's a birthday or other special day, when it's been a rough day, or when I have company. 

Any tinfoil hats are generally reserved for other sorts of occasions.

APny, I love the plates, too. I just looked and the MSRP for those suckers is $50 each. Lord have mercy! They're made by Waechtersbach, so at least they're quality-pricey (Still, glad I got them for next-to-nothing, and they can be found for less than the SMRP even when new).

Aside from the "Special" plates, there isn't any sort of division of items in my home between the "good stuff" (for company) and the "everyday stuff" (for, well, the folks that live here).  Why not enjoy the good stuff every day? Treat ourselves as valued people we are!
