The Spring holiday weekend is nearly upon us. Last year at this season, we were approaching life on a week by week basis. It looked like Susie might be finishing up blood treatments for kickstarting her bone marrow’s production of platelets. I was working from home, wearing many hats (some better than others) and our visibility regarding the future was quite foggy.
A lot has changed in a year. Susie is not undergoing any treatments now. She still is not completely independent, but much improved. We have done a few adventures in the last six months, travel to Boston for Thanksgiving and a road trip to see Gabriel at Cal Poly. Susie is also helping with some of the cooking (thank goodness :-). She now has a special ear plug, so next on the list is to get back into the swimming pool.
Last weekend, we enjoyed talking with my family in Israel. My parents are there and will be celebrating Pesach ba’Aretz. One of Susie and I’s most favorite seders was when we visited Israel. This year, we are hosting the seder. Hopefully, it will be fun and the food delicious. I plan to make Ottolenghi’s Salmon Steaks in in Chraimeh Sauce. I made it a few months back, but used MahiMahi. The sauce was divine.
In the middle of April, Susie has another checkup. After which, we’ll start planning our next adventure. For now, we wish everyone a very happy and healthy spring and may your holiday weekend be filled with joy and smiles.
Pesach Sameach/ Happy Easter!
