Dining Out

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV

Today was a good day. I have lab work done each Monday and Thursday morning. The numbers from today’s labs came back very good so no infusions were needed. Thankfully, I haven’t needed any infusions so far. 

I also was able to login after returning from the hospital for the labs and get a day’s worth of work done. It felt great to be able to do some work again. I work with a great group of folks so I look forward to opportunities to work with them.

This evening we went to our standby Mexican restaurant. We used to go there at least once a week. However, we haven’t been there since starting chemo. It was a little nerve wracking for me as I am paranoid about germs given the low antibody response I have. (When we eat fast food, I bring it home and microwave it to make sure it is very hot). In fact, I rarely go out in public any more because of my low immune system.

However, all went well. The food was a little more spicy than I seem to be able to handle right now so I didn’t eat a whole lot. Of course, my appetite isn’t what it once was… Sorry cattlemen of America :). I am looking forward to the time when things return to normal. Something as simple or mundane as going out to a restaurant to eat dinner has oddly gone from routine to a significant event.  I find it interesting the comfort that we find in routine that would probably otherwise be considered boring.  It certainly should encourage us to live in the moment or more specifically, “whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God,”
