When ever I think of dessert is almost always has something to do with chocolate or chocolate and peanut butter. I have to retrain the brain, because Kyle is supposed to each chocolate sparingly. It is one cause of kidney stones. We will find out what his stone consisted of in a few weeks when it come back from the lab.
I have been trying to use more of my food storage and what is in the refridgerator for a change instead of throwing away so much food. I found that I had two containers of sour cream in the fridge and deciced to surf the net for recipies; this is what I came up with. Not a single drop of chocolate in it, plus I used one of my containers of sour cream. Win-win, except if you consider the lose 20 pounds this year. Oh well, can't win them all.
I just felt sorry for my hubby for having the pain of removing the stent yesterday. He said he would rather have a kidney stone then have a stent removed again. He looked terrible when he came out of that office. He was sweating, looked like he could pass out any second, he actually looked worse than he did last week. But he is on the mend today an is starting to feel better.
Life is interesting with all its bumps and bruises. In a few weeks/months he won't remember all the discomfort, only that it hurt A LOT!
I know one thing is for sure, we are going to try having our affairs in order, so next time if it is more serious we have talked about everything...as hard as it may be.
I have a friend whose husband just found out he has terminal cancer. He will find out his life expectancy on Monday. I'm sure she wished her husband just had kidney stones too.
I got a chance to slow down a bit last week, more like I was forced to slow down. I remember what is most important in life--our family! This is an unconcious known, but sometimes it is good to have this in the forfront of my thoughts.
So we will continue to retrain our brains, maybe we can lose a pound or two doing so...if I stay away from those sweets....na!
