Christopher’s recovery continues to go well. He has a lot of swelling which we are working on keeping down by lots of icing and elevation, but we’re a little concerned about him returning to work tomorrow. He’s been off pain pills more than long enough, but he still tires easily. And we’re most concerned about the swelling because unlike at home, he can’t elevate & ice his leg while at the office.
This is what he’s doing right this minute. Working from home… in his shorts & teeshirt with his leg elevated and hooked up to the ice machine. Obviously this won’t be an option when he returns to the office tomorrow. So a prayer or two for the swelling to go down (or at least not get worse) would be great! Thanks so much for all the prayers you guys have already said on our behalf. 🙂
I mentioned yesterday that a wonderful silver lining to this recovery period has been all the time at home together. And all the cooking & eating at home. Not just grabbing a bowl of cereal on my way out the door for work, but actually putting together a nice breakfast. Trying a couple of recipes I’ve had my eye on. Including… this Blueberry Pie Oatmeal Parfait from The Dashing Dish!
Christopher and I both loved this! And I’m not just saying that. We’ve tried a couple of other oatmeal based recipes this week that were just so-so. I really do only share my favorite recipes here so you can trust me on this. 🙂 I think the only change we’ll make next time is to add a layer of granola if we have any on hand. Just to add a little more crunch and texture to the dish. If you like yogurt & oatmeal & blueberries… this one is for you! 🙂
