So I have great news. First the surgery is next Wednesday and there will be radiation in the operating room and then I go home and I'm done. It does seem to be the old cancer come back but it's not the "sticky" kind which is good. No answer yet about chemo but whatever comes my way will be fine.
So I told you I'm on this modified ketogenic diet, at least I think I did. The premise is that sugar (carbs) feed cancer so we are trying to starve it. I am limited to 25 or less a day. This baby is 3.5! Cheesecake with no crust is odd but it was easy to make and I have seven more slices in the freezer for when I want something sweet. It was really pretty good. If you have been eating regular stuff all the time you might not like it but if you have been limiting carbs it's wonderful.
So while I was dreaming about cruising I got to thinking- you know that Subaru commercial where they donate $250 to charity every time they sell a car? Well guess who is really paying that $250? The buyer of course. It's built into the price of the car. Then they get to deduct it on their corporate taxes. Put a little love in your heart. You heartless bastards.
So I ended up at Dr. Wacks today. My legs were aching so bad I could hardly walk. He gave me prednisone and told me what it is and I am much better already. He told me to use Sarge's walker until I am completely better because if I were to fall I'd be in a pickle so I am but I'm going to be fine soon. I love that man.
I think all my appointments are scheduled and it will be the middle of January before I have all the facts so I'm the meantime I'm going to try to concentrate on other things. I am doing good on a ketogenic diet. D#1 says sugar feeds cancer and carbs are sugar or turn into sugar so I'm doing my best with this.
Tomorrow I am having Christmas Eve lunch with the duck and then Christmas Day I'm having dinner at the Fern House. Kyle will be there too.
Hope your holiday is totally tits but if it's now, don't fret. Most aren't. We are all human and perfection is not realistic.
Well the appointment with radiology was promising. Of course I still have to have the surgeon sign on but he thinks I can have another lumpectomy and a new radiation that is only one treatment done during surgery. I won't know more until the middle of January but it made me feel much better!
So today was a day off from the medical field. I exercised in the pool and did laundry. I am on a very low carb diet as sugar (carbs) feed cancer and I don't want to feed mine. So far I am managing it pretty well. It's a very restrictive diet but doable.
