Ok. I've been on a smoothies kick since I had my surgery. Here are a few sites that have some good recipes. Also a few lists of ingredients for smoothies which can be mixed and matched to come up with your own recipes. Obviously some of these just shouldn't mix...but here goes.
  • Vanilla Low Fat Frozen Yogurt(or Choc. to use for coffee smoothies)
  • Cups of Flavored Yogurts(Strawberry & Strawberry Banana are my favs)
  • Bananas(you can cut up and freeze careful they overpower other fruits)
  • Strawberries(Frozen or Fresh)
  • Orange Juice
  • Peaches(Frozen)
  • Cherries
  • Apple Sauce
  • Cinnamon
  • Instant Coffee
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Coconut
  • Milk
  • Pineapple(canned)
  • Granola or cereal
More later......

Good report from the Dr.

Had a good visit at the Dr. yesterday. Everything seems to be healing and so far no problems. He started me on HRT. Brittany is doing very well. She's had a few problems with sinus and strep infections but she took her meds like a trooper. Her appetite has been great lately too. She had to get another tooth crowned and has a tooth coming in on a baby tooth that has a crown on it. That will be taken care of her next visit in August. I go back to my Dr. July 9th. I need to remember to take my vitamins and calcium tablets. I am getting my strength back daily. Tomorrow I have an on campus meeting for my Office Graphics class.

Jim is doing well. Most of his problems are with muscle cramps caused by the heat. Taking a potassium pill daily seems to really help. It's really nice since we got moved into Apt. 1.

My next Dr. Appt is Monday the 11th. He didn't put me on hormones at my last appointment but will do that Monday. I don't think I've really experienced any symptoms of being hurled into menopause so far. If I have...I haven't recognized it and no one around me has been brave enough to tell me ;-) School is coming along pretty well. I have a test coming up on the 13th as well as a meeting of the Office Graphics class. My Mom came down from TN to help me after my surgery. I don't know what I would have done without her. I'm still not back up to full speed and I guess it will take awhile but I'm well enough that she is able to go back home. Today is her birthday.
