I had some tests done this week to get more specific information about the tumor. One was an Endoscopic Ultrasound. It was fun. They knock you out and put a camera with an ultrasound device on the end of it down your throat. The other one wasn't fun. You drink a gross shake (see above) and then they shoot your veins with something that is radioactive, you sit for an hour, and then you go in the tube. Test results from both showed nothing worse than what I already knew, which was good news. Since Myrna, Goldie and Ellen were in town, I got some friends together to meet them. At Mindy's we had a classic bagel buffet: bagels from Murray's, baked salmon, lox and whitefish from Russ and Daughters.


  1. That looks fantastic. We're having a torrential downpour right now, so that means French Lentil soup with chanterelles with grilled cheese sandwiches on rosemary garlic bread with mushroom pate and caramelized shallots.

  2. phew. fee eew. i had baked beans on toast for lunch today with kambucha. best rainy day meall.

  3. those shakes are the worst! I had to drink two that were "mocha" flavored once. blech.
