through an entire week but I also made sure to load my juicer in the car.
knee. This time it was a meniscus transplant and a bit more difficult and
painful. To aid in a speedy recovery, I lugged the juicer into our hotel room
along with a hefty supply of vegetables and fruits. His favorite drink???
Pumpkin Pie Wanna-Be
1 sweet potato
2 - 3 carrots
cinnamon to taste
Ok.... let me honest. This was the drink he would sip down without massive
amounts of eye rolling and complaining!! I, on the other hand, really liked it!
On the fifth day of recovering, my "little guy" got the sparkle back in his eyes.
And he was ready to head back to his normal, dorm/college life! Thank
heavens for the blessing of finding the right surgeon and the Lord's hand
in making it successful!
I still worry, though...
~worry that the body might reject this piece from a cadaver.
~worry that my son might think it's ok to play flag football with his
~worry that come spring, he will forget the doctor's words of "no playing
tug-of-war" at April Reign.
But all this comes with the territory of being a mom. Right along with having
a trusty nurse's cape close at hand. Ready for that next time I might need
to don it at a moment's notice. I do like the addition of the juicer, though.
Do you think I can move beyond that one recipe? And get him to drink it with
a smile on his face? Nahhhhh!! Not a chance at this age! Maybe when he gets
older he'll "get it" !!!
