Celebration time (sing it now!)

Getting the good news about E's biopsy report was the best thing (besides the good news about the twins) that we have had in quite a while. The results came back as clear and that all the melanoma is gone! His incision is still a bit raw but will heal over time. All twenty some stitches came out clean!

So, we decided to take each other to lunch yesterday to celebrate. We headed to one of our favorite places, Bon Appetite, in Dunedin just south of us. The restaurant sits right on the water and has a wonderful view of Honeymoon Island and the causeway. Lots of boats go cruising by and we always see tons of gulls and pelicans. And we have always had a good meal there. But, the closer we got to Dunedin and the Gulf, the more foggy it got. By the time we reached the restaurant, we could only see a short distance in front of us.

We decided to try a place nearby where I'd had lunch but E had not. We headed to Sea Sea Riders and opted to eat inside as it had gotten even cooler out. The restaurant is in an older cottage and close to but not directly on the Gulf. We split and order of the best crab cakes I've had (outside of E's)and an order of seafood pasta. Both were divine.

After lunch, we stopped at the nursery to try to find a camellia that we saw in Southern Living but it looks like we will have to order this on-line. Our last stop before home was Snookers to let Suzie know E was aok. I got some great shots of the gators and this is one of my favorites.

I have yoga this morning and E heads to the heart doctor this afternoon for some more tests and to get wired to a monitor for the next 24 hours. We'll see the dr. tomorrow and find out what the next step with his heart meds. Step by step, we're going to get this hubby of mine back in prime health!

Hope everyone has a great day!
