My brother Lee is here with his wife Kelly and my two nieces Madi and Alex! They flew from Hershey, PA yesterday to Minneapolis, MN and then drove the rest of the way.
I'm busy today making food and preparing a barbecue for the whole family to enjoy.
I started with dessert! Pioneer Woman's recipes seemed appropriate for the occasion.
The heat index is forecast to be as high as 105 with temperatures in the high 90's. We're staying in as much as possible.
I got a surprise call from Dr. Antoniuk yesterday. She said my wound is contaminated with staph. Ew... It isn't infected, but the contamination could be preventing healthy tissue to grow and heal. I have started some antibiotics and will see her in two weeks again. She spoke with Dr. Panwalkar and his advice? No surgery right now... smile.
And for all of the Minnesota Wild hockey fans, I had to add in the big announcement we've all been waiting to hear... Zach Parise AND Ryan Suter signed to play with Wild next year!
I'm off to celebrate the day with family and give my camera a work out.
Happy 4th of July to everyone!
