Honestly, I expected to hate it from all the stories I have heard of these fermented soy beans :p I didn’t mind the slimy texture at all and the taste was alright.

My lovely dinner date, Marit! ♥

Back to work. My hand is allowing me to do simpler manual tasks now, so I could wash dishes and sell stuff. However, since I am not allowed to lift anything heavier, I had a lady helping me out in the evening. She did all the more difficult things like moping the floors and mixing dough for the next day.

… 24. April 2018

 Porridge with pumpkin seeds and bits of beef jerky.

 Sakura-shrimp kakimochi. This puffed crispy snack was so yummy.

 Since I was feeling so down, I asked if we could go to Gotsu for dinner. Hubby said yes. We shared some spicy minced meat rice rolls and a wakame salad.

 My favourite thing in the entire world, especially when I am feeling cold or sad: super spicy kimchi stew with pork and some rice to go with it.

 A grilled ham and cheese sandwich.

In the morning I went to see a specialist about the thrombosis. She was a lovely and helpful lady who explained the illness from the very beginning to me and set the course of treatment. Sadly, there are still many “we don’t really know’s” with things like this, so I don’t even have an estimate when my hand will stop hurting and when the thrombosis will be gone. Could be a week for the former, could be a month. It all depends on my body they said.

I was taken off birth control and told not to lift heavy things or to exercise. Not sure yet how it will affect my job, but we’ll see. Right now, I am taking a couple of days off to see if the pain lessens. It’s not that bad, the swelling has gone down and my hand is mostly functional, but weak and I can’t make certain movements with it yet.
