@fracturedd– It think that we are limited here too. I was stopped from flying internationally after proton radiation because of all the "bugs" that I could pick up- germs from an area I am unfamiliar with so would have no immunity to.

And here is a real recipe!
How to Make Asparagus Tomato Salad:

Rinse the asparagus and tomatoes in water and cut off the bottoms of the asparagus spears, then cut them into thirds.
Bring a few cups of water to a boil on the stove, and boil asparagus for 5-7 minutes. Drain the asparagus and place in a bowl of ice water to keep asparagus from cooking more.
Cut cherry tomatoes in half, and the string cheese into bite-sized pieces.
In a large bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes, asparagus and string cheese pieces.
Pour the dressing over the top, add pepper and basil, and mix. Chill until ready to serve.

@fracturedd– Good morning. I continue to be stunned at the preventable illnesses caused by callousness of the medical field. This is absolutely horrible and unforgivable that this happened to anyone. I don't know how anyone pulls through something like this emotionally.

@fracturedd – Good morning. What an inspiration you are! Research and breakthroughs for lung diseases and cancer have come a long way but still have miles to go. We just have to take the best care of ourselves that we can and hope for the best. I feel the same way that you do, I feel terrific but when I go full steam ahead my lungs pull me back to reality.
