Bringing home the bacon

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s official: I am in the wedding season of my life. In the past five months, I’ve been to six weddings. I was talking to Bob, the dad at the August wedding. He asked if I was a wedding crasher or how I came to be invited. With the quick wit I don’t have, I explained my friendship with the mother of the groom. With the slow wit I DO have, it popped into my head 10 minutes later that I should have claimed to be a wedding crasher investigating my next story for OCJ on wedding food. The following week, an obsession grew for finding a recipe for the candied bacon chicken appetizer served at that very wedding. A desperate Pinterest and Google search began. The sweet salty bacon — all I can say is yum!Bacon has taken the food world by craze. The Pork Council reports that 62% of restaurants have something bacon on the menu. Recipes, chef shows, novelties, apparel as well as websites are centered around bacon. Bacon tops sandwiches, salads, veggies and even desserts. And who doesn’t love Jim Gaffigan’s skit about bacon? Be sure to check it out on YouTube if you haven’t seen it.Combos of bacon and ingredients you wouldn’t put together are tantalizing taste buds everywhere. Paul makes liquid nitrogen ice cream with the local chemistry class and the kids bring in the fix-ins for the ice cream. To this day Paul says the best ice cream he has ever tasted was a pancake batter ice cream with maple syrup and bacon. The chemistry teacher, Dr. U, explained to me the two flavors (sweet plus salty) create a yummy chemical reaction on your tongue but no one really knows the reason why we think it is so delicious. Dr. U shared an article with me from Cooksmart.com. In this article, they use a star to illustrate how flavors compliment and enhance each other. Sweet (such as honey/brown sugar/maple syrup) and salty (such as bacon) bring out the flavors of each other. No wonder a tad bit of sweetness makes an unforgettable bacon experience.The National Pork Board stats show that the average American eats nearly 18 servings of bacon a year. The big question is what is a serving? Modern healthy diet preaches moderation and bacon can fit that mold with two slices of bacon providing only 73 calories and 6 grams fat. The problem is not many people can stop with two slices. My son Luke can pound down a pound of bacon himself! I’m guessing he is not alone. The huge shrinkage of weight after bacon crisps up makes it easy to indulge in the crispy, salty treat.Good news to Ohio pork producers is that over 50% of Americans report always having bacon on hand in their fridge. In 2015, Ohio ranked 8th in pork production with a commercial inventory of 2.4 million pigs. Askthemeatman.com states 20 pounds of bacon (13%) comes from a 215-pound live hog. So quick calculating tells me that Ohio producers could produce close to 48 million pounds of bacon a year. That is a lot of bacon!This October celebrate the oink by pigging out on bacon. Start your day like Jim Gaffigan, with the “applause” of frying up some bacon. Enjoy lunch by topping off your salad, baked potato or veggies with Gaffigan’s “fairy dust” of bacon, bacon bits. Wrap up the end of your day in bacon too, just make your day a little bit better than it already was.Eat well and Healthy,Shelly Smokey Bacon Mac and Cheese Molly Yeh todayshow.com“if I’m really feeling decadent, I’ll let the dish of mac and cheese cool overnight in the refrigerator, cut it until squares, and then bread it and deep-fry it.” 8 ounces medium shells12 ounces applewood-smoked bacon1/4 cup flour3 cups whole milk6 oz. smoked Gouda cheese, chopped3 oz. pepper jack cheese, chopped1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated1 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepperKosher salt and black pepper1/2 cup panko breadcrumbsKetchup, for serving  1.

Brain aneurysm repair- discharge

first_imgAlternate NamesAneurysm repair – cerebral – discharge; Cerebral aneurysm repair – discharge; Coiling – discharge; Saccular aneurysm repair – discharge; Berry aneurysm repair – discharge; Fusiform aneurysm repair – discharge; Dissecting aneurysm repair – discharge; Endovascular aneurysm repair – dischargeWhen You Were in the HospitalYou had a brain aneurysm. An aneurysm is a weak area in the wall of a blood vessel that bulges or balloons out. Once it reaches a certain size, it has a high risk of bursting. It can leak blood and cause a stroke or bleeding along the surface of the brain (also called a subarachnoid hemorrhage).You may have had surgery to prevent bleeding or to treat the aneurysm after it bled. The two types of surgery are:Open craniotomy (a hole is made in your skull to place a clip on the base of the aneurysm)Endovascular repair (the doctor can do surgery on areas of your body through a blood vessel).What to Expect at HomeIf you had bleeding before, during, or after surgery you may have some short- or long-term neurological problems. These may be mild or severe. For many people, these problems will decrease over time or go away.If you had either type of surgery you may:Feel sad, angry, or very nervous. This is normal.Have had a seizure and will take medicine to prevent another one.Have headaches that may continue for a while. This is common.What to expect after craniotomyand placement of a clip:advertisementIt will take 3- 6 weeks to fully recover. If you had bleeding from your aneurysm this may take longer. You may feel tired for up to 12 or more weeks.If you had a stroke or brain injury from the bleeding, you may have such permanent problems as speech problems, trouble thinking, muscle weakness, or numbness.Problems with your memory are common, but these may improve.You may feel dizzy or confused, or your speech may not be normal after the surgery. If you did not have any bleeding, these problems should get better or go away soon.What to expect after endovascular repair:You may have pain in your groin area.You may have some bruising around and below the incision.You may be able to start daily activities, such as driving a car, within 1 or 2 weeks if you did not have any bleeding. Ask your doctor for advice.Self-careMake plans to have help at home while you recover.Follow a healthy lifestyle. If you have high blood pressure, keep it under control. Do not smoke. If you drink alcohol, talk with your doctor about when it is okay to start again. Ask your doctor when it is okay to start sexual activity.Take your seizure medicine if any was prescribed for you. Your doctor may refer you to a speech, physical, or occupational therapist to help you recover from any brain damage.If the doctor put a catheter in through your groin (endovascular surgery), it is okay to walk short distances on a flat surface. Limit going up and down stairs to around 2 times a day for 2- 3 days. Do not do yard work, drive, or play sports for at least 2 days — or when your doctor says it is okay to do so.Your doctor or nurse will tell you when your dressing should be changed. Do not take a bath or swim for 1 week. If you have bleeding, lie down and put pressure on the incision site for 30 minutes.When to Call the DoctorCall your doctor if you have:A severe headache or a headache that gets worse and you feel dizzyA stiff neckNausea and vomitingEye painProblems with your eyesight (from blindness to peripheral vision problems to double vision)Speech problemsProblems thinking or understandingProblems noticing things around youChanges in your behaviorFeel weak or lose consciousnessLoss of balance or coordination or loss of muscle useWeakness or numbness of an arm, leg, or your face.Also, call your doctor if you have:Bleeding at the incision site that does not go away after you apply pressureAn arm or leg that changes color, becomes cool to touch, or becomes numbRedness, pain, or yellow or green discharge in or around the incision siteA fever higher than 101 degrees F or chillsFollow-up Make sure to follow-up with your surgeons office within 2 weeks of being discharged from the hospital.Ask your doctor if you need long-term follow-up and imaging, including CT scans or MRIs of your head.If you had acerebral spinal fluidshunt placed after aneurysm surgery, you will need regular follow-ups to make sure it functions well.advertisementReferencesBederson JB, Connolly ES Jr, Batjer HH, Dacey RG, Dion JE, Diringer MN, Duldner JE Jr, Harbaugh RE, Patel AB, Rosenwasser RH; American Heart Association.
