Whew

Well, I had my follow-up appointment with the doctor on Monday. All of the cancer has been removed and there is no need for further treatment right now. Plus I had a cat scan which was negative. So I am in the clear and need to be scoped (ug!) again in 3 months. All I can say is that I have a incredible network of family, friends and coworkers. I am blessed!

Yesterday it started snowing at about 2:00 in the afternoon, so by the time I left work at about 4:15, traffic was at a gridlock! It took me over a hour to get out of Ann Arbor which is approximately 5 miles! Bumper to bumper with cars in the ditch and spun out. It never fails to amaze me that people either don't know how to drive in the snow or they are not willing to SLOW THEIR ASSES DOWN, so they cause accidents and back ups and big old messes!! Anyway, I was starving and I did not have a single thing to eat in the car. Only about 1/2 bottle of water! Usually I have at least a apple but this day I forgot it!

It's also been pretty cold. This winter has been a doozy so far. I am so ready for Spring!!

We got a new slow cooker on Monday night. Yesterday I put a frozen solid turkey breast in it in the morning on low. I thought it may not be cooked good enough when I got home but seeing as I was home later than normal, it was cooked perfect! Slow cookers are the best. What I like is that you can take a less expensive cut of meat and its fall-off-the-fork tender after cooking slowly all day!

I am glad for your good report. I had to drive last year to the dentist at about 7:30 am and it started snowing when I was about half way there. So I considered turning around. I went in and left about 30 minutes later. It was really snowing now. I got back on the expressway and went about 1/4 mile and there was a wreck. Had to wait. Then a little further, another. Had to wait. Before I had went 4 miles there were 5 wrecks. People don't slow down enough! I felt like crying for a few minutes because I wanted to be home so badly but decided that wouldn't do any good. So I didn't. :D
