They took out staples from my belly left in there from other surgeries, so under my liver and up my side on the right hurts really bad. They did this because there is less chance of endo growing there if they take the staples out, because Endo is kind of like barnicles in a way and it likes surfaces to build up on,..silly stuff. For some reason, endo is related to auto-immune diseases in a way they haven't figured out yet. For example, your chances of getting another auto-immune issue are much higher if you have endo. The reason why your tissue is growing where it shouldn't they still don't know. Anyhow, I'm down to one percocet at a time, but if I don't take it every 3 hours it gets to where I'm freaking out and teary in pain today, but it's only been 24 hours since I was in surgery, so it isn't unexpected for all that they did while in there. I made a cake to distract me the last 1/2 hour, so if you come visit me today before craig starts eating lots, you may get some of this!
I lost my favorite movie, Muriel's Wedding. This makes me sad. If you have it, can you please bring it back? I could use some movies to watch.
Mix 3 mashed bananas, 3tbs soft butter, 1 egg, 1/4 milk and 2 cups bisquick. Pour into a greased 9x9" pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30minutes until you can put a toothpick in and it comes out clean.
In a small bowl mix 2 tbs soft butter with 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and a splash of milk (until it looks shiney--this is more a glaze than a frosting).
Spread out 1/2 cup of walnut pieces over the cake and pour glaze over the still hot cake. Wait for it to cool a bit, cut into 8 pieces, and serve with coffee or milk.
