Jackie, my nephew Chris’s wife, asked if I’d like to go out to lunch today. After she saw my post yesterday, she messaged me asking if I wanted to do something different. No, says I, if you can stand watching me give lunch a try and then just sit there and sip tea and watch you eat the best Chinese food in town, I’m game. I keep thinking this “no swallowing thing” is temporary. So Jackie and I and Jill (Anne and Clark’s daughter) went to PF Changs where, miracle of miracles, I had a lettuce wrap (yum), egg drop soup, a taste of Jill’s Mongolian Beef and a taste of Jackie’s chicken dish.
I loved everything but mostly I loved that I could eat it all. Trust me, this was a miracle. Best thing that has happened all day. I was going to say, best thing of the week, but holding Clare was the best thing of the week.
I have decided that I need to eat EVERY meal with Jackie Shugart. The last meal I really ate was at her house on Thanksgiving. She must have good karma or something.
