Summary from Goodreads:

His wife has left him, his father is sinking into dementia, and Marcos tries not to think too hard about how he makes a living. After all, it happened so quickly. First, it was reported that an infectious virus has made all animal meat poisonous to humans. Then governments initiated the “Transition.” Now, eating human meat—“special meat”—is legal. Marcos tries to stick to numbers, consignments, processing.

Then one day he’s given a gift: a live specimen of the finest quality. Though he’s aware that any form of personal contact is forbidden on pain of death, little by little he starts to treat her like a human being. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost—and what might still be saved.

Thyroid Disease Awareness Month

Did you know that there is something in your body that has the shape of a butterfly that is responsible for producing hormones that play a crucial role in many of the body’s systems?  It is in charge of systems from cells and tissues, to organs like the heart, brain, liver, and kidneys. It is called the thyroid gland and it is found in your neck. Dysfunction occurs when the thyroid produces either too much or too little thyroid hormone. Either can disrupt healthy functioning of vital organs – leading to a wide range of symptoms. The good news is that once it is diagnosed and treated, it is possible to live a normal, healthy life. Since this gland controls so much and can affect many areas of the body, the month of January has been dedicated to bring awareness to thyroid diseases.

Looking back over the past few months, I feel thankful about quite a few things.
