Love Thursday

A little bit of random (if somewhat muted) joy here at the Cooper Clubhouse on this Love Thursday.

Sydney continues to hang in there and seems to be enjoying life still. (Yesterday she tried to hump Thomas the Cat. I'm taking that as a good sign...I mean, for HER, anyway.) She's still interested in her food and is really enjoying all the attention she's been getting as we try to prepare ourselves for the inevitable. Her heart episodes are definitely more frequent. She had one the other night that had both of our girls sobbing. When it was over and Syd got back up, both girls ran inside and made iron bead figurines of Syd.

Here is Jane's:

I can't show you Ana's because she asked me not to iron it until Sydney passes away.

Oof.

I went to see my podiatrist in Queens this morning and he had the results of my nifty 3D CT scan. It looks like the deterioration of my heel isn't as bad as he feared, which is very good news. It means that I won't have to have my heel joint fused as soon as we'd thought, which delays the whole threat of immobility. Now if we can take care of the tendinitis on the one foot and the fasciitis on the other foot, I should actually be able to walk again without pain. I really needed some good news right about now so you can imagine how this gives me something to cling to...

My husband and I noshed on THIS last night.
I have written before about making Insalata Caprese but this one? So made of my OWN TOMATOES AND BASIL. Because MY GARDEN

SO.

TOTALLY.

UTTERLY.

RULES!


Ahem. (Okay, not so muted joy, exactly.)

THIS would be my seven-year-old, the Court Jester. Her note says, "I believe I have something stuck between my teeth."

Dude. All you need is a cow, now, and you'll be a veritable Caprese utopia.

I LOVE Jane's Sydney. Can definitely wait to see Ana's, though, all things considered.

Glad your heel is better than anticipated.

Ahh, Thursday....

Time for a sheep, too! Think of it: your own fiber!

Hahaha! (on the teeth!) Glad to hear some good foot news!
Now I am so having the munchies for that gorgeous food you posted!

And your 7 year old is a hoot!

Oh, Jane! You little HAM, you!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Good to hear that Syd is hanging on. Yes, this is prolonging the inevitable, but every day is a gift.
