   I have just a couple more days until a follow-up with Dr Rathfoot, seems like years right now. This is like week 2 or 3 of a sore throat, think it's the yeast, that or I've eaten chalk. There is a large knot that has been on the left side of the back of my neck, sore and that is probably the fatigue. Denise says the fact it is sore means it is not cancer and probably an infected lymph gland from infection. I should have seen Dr Schindler but I figured antibiotics would mean more yeast, and I can bake bread in my throat. Sucks lately but I've had worse. I've been sleeping on the couch without the O2, dampness and cold are not my friends, lol. I talked to a couple of friends that have done that and recliners in all this rain lately. Arther sure does hit hard. :)

  Snow yesterday from nowhere. Denise called and I walked her through the steps of what gear, drive in tracks or not, speed, braking for over 2 hours, she done excellent. I drove in that junk over 20 years and without all wheel drive. I don't remember a lot but I remember driving, one of the things I was good at. The vision change and dizzy spells though limit what I can do these days, but not what I remember. We cleaned up around the yard from the ice today, not much damage. Kept power throughout the whole thing which was unusual. We had a fire going and candles ready just in case and I had just baked some bread, we can cook on the woodstove if we have to. Been there done that before, lol. We cook mostly with Cast Iron, actually Lodge only, since it is the last and only one made in the USA. Glass top or wood stove top, even a fire, it works great and lasts forever if you take care of it. Ok, sounds like a sales pitch so I'll stop. We have that and Stainless Steel. , a little porcelain cast iron, but we can't afford much of that. We've learned to do what we have to do with and be grateful for what we have. I don't reckon God has filled all our wants but He has filled all our needs, and that is a good thing.

   We're started back on the Gluten Free diet, not the Paleo one though. I know I'm not Celiac but we've all seen that elimination or at least a drastic reduction of Gluten seems to make us feel better. Now if I could just create a biscuit that we like, got the bread down.
