So I had my hip X-ray and the pain is arthritis so I had to make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to see about getting a cortisone shot in the hip. If it works it could be good for six months to a year. I'm really having trouble walking and I'm hopeful it will help me. Getting old is a total drag. Doctor appointments have become my social life now. Blech. 

Hope your day is better than that!

I'm continuing to heal and feeling pretty good. The only thing that hurts from the surgery is the armpit where they took nodes to test. I'm still having the issue with my legs, especially the left hip but I'm working on that too. 

I should be on the Piano Bar cruise now and look at their photos on Facebook every day. Seems they are having a great time. 

I am bored and ready for a project. I'm doing cooking stuff as I am stil on the modified Ketogenic diet. Remember carbs feed cancer!  

Be well y'all!

I'm being treated very well indeed. I can't drive until after my appointment on Wednesday so I have a helper. Above and beyond...

There's not much better than a BFF foot massage. 

So the MRI was today and yesterday the clip was inserted so I'm ready to go on Wednesday.  It will be great to have it behind me and get on with life. 

Have a great weekend!

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. 

Hope your day went as good as mine!

This is the recipe you asked me to share but I cut way back on the sweetener. 1/4 C Truvia is what I used. I'd suggest tasting it before you add the eggs and if it's sweet enough you're good to go. 

So yesterday I met with my surgeon and I liked her very much. She, like the radiologist, believe they can save the breast so we are trying for that outcome!

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.
