I guess it’s about time i updated and let everyone know that Matthew went to the doctor a few weeks ago.

We went to the doctor that had first found his cancer so that he knew Matthew’s history, and he had a an EKG and a physical. Everything looks fine so far but soon he needs to go back for blood tests and a chest x-ray. Nothing bad so far, so that’s good news, and I’m hoping it was just a fluke/stress thing that caused his symptoms.

I don’t have much time to update right now (mainly because i want to read some more of Harry Potter 7 before work) but i will post a picture of the yummy lunch gram and i made on our baking day Monday:

Once it has cooked down, take off heat and spoon on toasted bread and top with whatever cheese you’d like. Eat. And then eat some more. 🙂
