160+ hours later in the state of Texas, I officially become a Community Health Worker through Baylor Scott and White Health and Wellness Center formerly known as Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute. It has been an amazing journey in acquiring the knowledge and I am definitely proud of what I've been able to accomplish. Three major accomplishments: Putting on the best on pace 30 min presentation on COPD with one flash card, staying on script, speaking and facing my audience; making new longtime friends in healthcare and Texas; and inching my way into helping people through #preventivemedicine. I'm looking forward to the next chapter. #graduation
Oh Edwardi Babi, I miss you so much. I will always love you and never forget you. You gave our family more joy than grief; was a good brother to Jacob in Troy and in East Northport; and brought us closer together. You will forever be upstairs and in the store. Thank you for being the cat that you are and letting me rehab you to be a cuddler. Godspeed Bootzin. Special thanks to @graceyanatomy @dbmanalo @mikedejesus23 @alzarepa @soosheeplz Facetiming me at the vet last night. I appreciate y'all including me. Also something VERY IMPORTANT TO ADD: Thank you very much Parasos for being his foster family.
Missing Paris and my salade niçoise from Trésor. I had to fix a very abridged version with MSC albacore, yellowfin and skipjack #tuna; olive bar mélange kalamata, capers, caper berries and sweet mini red peppers, drizzled with organic dijon and olive oil dressing. Oh so satisfying. If @wholefoods is going to make a play, it'll be in its seafood standards. Lovin' the Pole and Line line. #wildcaught #seafood #poleandlinetuna #msc #wfmteammembers
What a journey! I enrolled in @bswhealth Health and Wellness' (formerly Diabetes Health & Wellness Institute) Community Health Worker (CHW) Program in February of this year. I am so proud to present a medical topic for CHW's COPD patients for 30 min. Despite all that has happened in the past two months -- with the highest highs and the lowest lows -- I managed to pull together the best presentation I've ever given in my life. I can't wait to get my certificate next week!!! I truly feel that I have mastered the eight competencies that Texas Department of Health and Human Services requires: Communication Interpersonal Service Coordination Capacity-Building Advocacy Teaching Organizational Knowledge based on Specific Health Issues

What brought me to #Texas: Wide open sky, flying and wild horses. #takemehigher Fun Fact: This is THE original #Pegasus that graced the top of the Renaissance Revival Magnolia Building (later the Magnolia Hotel), by Texlite for the Magnolia Oil Company in 1934.
To continue with feeling the green, I decided to make Thai Green Curry! Ughhh...it smells divine already. I can't wait until all the flavors meld together. Sim simma!!! Thai eggplants, Thai chili, holy basil, Chinese long beans, red pepper, onions and chicken breast.
Feeling green and tropical this morning! Spinach, pineapple, mango, banana, coconut milk, peanut butter, flax seeds, turmeric and strawberry #breakfast #smoothie. #healthystart
