Eight years ago my husband had surgery for colon cancer. There have been annual colonoscopies, and CT scans with every abdominal pain. Nothing indicated cause for concern.
It was chest pain that took him to the ER this time. His heart is fine, thank God, but the cancer has returned and spread. And so we take the next step.
He had his first chemo treatment last week. It went pretty well. There'll be many more. I am grateful for miracle drugs and insurance.
For the first week I had to remind myself to breathe. Repeatedly.
It's coming a little easier now.
I made the bread a week late. Then took another two weeks to post it. Better late than never.
Comfort food, literally.
The bread recipe can be found here or here, and links to the other Tuesdays With Dorie bakers are here.
We actually saw THREE shoes in the road on our way home from the hospital. I take that as a sign that all will be well. Here's a picture of one of them.
