Well, Deb Raney (my writing critique partner) clued me in to this wonderful invention in the picture. It was made for "edgie brownies lovers" like me. Every brownie has that yummy crusty edge. This is my first time to use the pan today, and the brownies (notice how much of the mix was left in the bowl...ahem...comfort food to the max!) are baking right now. I'll share the finished results below.
As you may know if you've been following this blog, I've spent the past two weeks visiting my parents in Atlanta and just got back a couple of hours ago. We got some not so good news yesterday. We were hoping and praying that the surgery that my mom, June, underwent on the 19th (where they took 60% of her liver due to cancer that began in the cystic duct and gallbladder) would end up ridding her body of cancer. But that wasn't the case.
The pathology report revealed that the cancer is also in the remaining portion of her liver. The biopsies they took on the day of the surgery that they thought were clean, upon further study, weren't. We brought mom home last night, which was wonderful! The staff at Emory were fabulous but after eleven days in the hospital, we were all ready to get home. Mom and I piled up on the sofa last night and watched Dancing with the Stars. A total girl's night. She's very weak but will slowly regain her strength as her appetite returns and she starts eating again.
I'll head down to Atlanta again in two weeks to accompany them to the chemotherapy and radiation doctors, and we'll find out more then about this long road of healing ahead. Thanks again for your continued prayers. We serve and worship a great God. I loved the drive home today and really appreciated the "alone" time. I cried off and on the whole way, of course, and dialed my iPod to some favorite worship songs. I felt God's mercy the entire way.
Okay, my oven's beeping. Off to check my cornbread. Yes, cornbread. I took the brownies out a few minutes ago. I'm making every comfort food I can think of, LOL. Here's a peek at the finished product...YUM!
