Tales from Luke's Crib
Well, I am finally all settled in at home! You wouldn't believe the size of my bed! It's HUGE and doesn't have a roof! I have blue and purple fish to look at and a turtle. Mom says that stuff will have to come out of my bed, but it's nice to look at for now.
I went to see Dr. Harmon today. She says I look healthy at 6 lbs. even! I have lots of appointments in the next two weeks and a couple are up by Mercy, so I get to stop in to my old diggs and see my girlfriends! She is going to set me up with some machine to show my oxygen sats so we can get this thing out of my nose soon! I keep telling them I don't need it...my latest trick was when I unhooked it from my oxygen tank all together. It was great seeing mom freak out on that one! I didn't even turn blue!
I'm adjusting to all the noise here. My brothers and sisters are CRAZY about me! Mom doesn't let them hold me too often, she says I'm still too little and have too many wires. Maybe I'll keep these monitors around a little longer. They seem to offer a little protection from my sibs. We also have these furry things...I think they are called Cats. They keep sniffing my head to see what I am...as if they didn't know I was coming! Well, I thought I would post a nurse's favorite recipe a week until all the 'Spa de NICU' treats are posted, starting with Shannon's favorite...Peanut butter cookies!
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Peanut Butter
3/4 Cup Oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. Salt
2 Cups Flour
Mix first four ingredients. Blend in beaten eggs, soda, and salt. Slowly add flour. Roll small chunks on palm of hand to make a ball. Roll the cookie dough ball in sugar and place on cookie sheet. Press cris-cross pattern into cookie with fork. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
It's just that easy! These sound so good, I may go whip up a batch for myself! Well, these are the tales from Luke's Crib for this week. Tune in next week to catch an update on my eyes and heart! Thomason out!
