Stinging Nettle Soup
I thought I got all of the spines out, but I didn't. It still hurts, and is keeping me awake. It's not painful painful but definitely bothersome. What was I thining?
I looked online to see how to neutrilze the acid, and I found out that you can make soup out of stinging nettle!! Yes, soup. That is an errand you want to send someone on as a joke, "could you go harvest some of that plant for some soup I'm making." No, that wouldn't be a good joke. There are good jokes, and there are not so good jokes. The paste does not work, incase you were wondering if the rememdy I went with helped. I am still completely aware of the pain in my heels and soles of my feet. Oh, did I mention that I was wearing high heels? Maybe I deserved it...trying to go out into a marsh with high heels on.
If you are as intrigued as I was about the soup- HERE is the recipe.
Speaking of pain- Mia's biopsy is tomorrow. This biopsy completely snuck up on me. Usually I have a week or so to torture myself and anticipate handing her back over. I would taking stinking nettles over sending her back into the cath lab anyday. She is such a little trooper. When they enter through the neck her recovery is shortened, but she is sore for at least a few days. I will let you know how our day goes. Say a little prayer for little Mia that her body is back to 0 rejection.
