Thursday: breaded chicken stir fry

 In an effort to use up veggie drawer, older produce as well as this pouch of stir fry sauce (condiments are a haven for salt that I must avoid), I created a breaded chicken (used $1.25 pkg of Perdue nuggets I recently bought and froze. After cooking in the toaster oven, I cut them into strips aka "breaded chicken."
Came out good; no leftovers remain.

that does look like a good dinner! I have some sad news to share today....I am in a state of shock. My husband had some swelling on his right side of his neck...they thought it was an infection and gave him antibiotic and scheduled a biopsy....this morning we learned my husband has a rare form of cancer....My husband was so shook up at doctors, he does not remember the kind of cancer, what stage. This is all just happening now...it is naptime in my home daycare and I am waiting for the clinical manager to call us for the PET scan, and to give me the all the needed information.....

I am on the computer just trying to keep my mind occupied while we wait for the call - while my daycare children are sleeping.

I am just in shock right now.....

Meme, I am so sorry to hear about your husband. Years back, my now Ex had to have neck surgery for a salivary gland tumor. We went to a thorasic surgeon at Yale. Luckily, it was benign and finally gave him the desire/push to quit smoking. He hasn't smoked, to my knowledge, since. Good luck!

meme,
That is horrible news, especially since you don't have all the facts. You would think the doctor's office would have given him something written or arranged to tell you immediately. So sorry for the upsetting news.

Your stir fry looks good, Carol. Wanted to stop by and send best wishes for your surgery.

Meme, they told your husband he had cancer when he was alone? I have never heard that happening. When they give you news like that they usually make you a separate appointment and tell you to bring a family member with you. I'm so sorry your family is going through this diagnosis. Good thoughts.

I am so sorry Meme. I hope for the best possible outcome for your husband. Hopefully it will be easily treated.

Well - I spoke with my husband's "clinical manager" yesterday - my husband has metastatic squamous cell carcinoma.....the cancer is in his lymph node. he is going to have a PET scan on tuesday to see if the cancer has spread to other areas of his body. we have an appointment for the medical oncologist on july 28 and radiation oncologist on august 4 - I am going to both these appointments....we will know any day now when the surgery is scheduled - they are removing that lymph node and tonsils. my husband smoked for years when he was younger - he tried for years to quit - fell back into it - never smoked in our house or outside - always in the garage.....I was able to log into doctor portal for patients - and read the reports - it is from smoking.........we are still in shock because he looks and feels fine except for the swelling in his neck and that pain. we wont know anything more until thursday - one week from today they will tell us what stage it is - from the PET scan - and the medical and radiation oncologists are going to "lay out options and treatment plans"....my husband will have chemo and radiation...it is all just so new and shocking - to look at him - he is healthy and strong - he has a back and spine problem form being a laborer for 30 years - but that is not related at all to his cancer....

thank you all so much for your kind words....you dont know how a simple sentence of support can mean so much....
