Just a little update….

I have my appointment for my new PET scan!  It will be this Friday at 9 am.  My doctor is going  to see me the same day, so no waiting for the results.  Good for me because waiting is the hardest part!  It’s a big day for me.  I will know if this past two months of chemo has helped.  If this new diet my Javiee has me on has helped.  I’m praying it has.  I really don’t want to spend this summer going thru more rounds of chemo! It’s hard to feel so bad for weeks at a time!  The funny thing is that once I recover from chemo I feel fine!  I don’t feel sick!  The chemo is what makes me feel sick!  Right now I feel like my happy self.  I am just going to enjoy this week and not worry about what Friday holds.  What does worrying help anyway??

Just a little note about my diet…I have not had sugar or red meat in 3 months!  Seriously…3 months!!  Oh how I miss my chocolate!!  Lucky for me my Javiee’s a good cook, he can make anything taste good!  I get my whole grain cereal (unprocessed) with hemp milk or unsweetened almond milk in the morning.  He makes sure I have fresh veggie soup everyday for lunch.  He loads me up on cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, fish, organic chicken, garlic, sea salt and lets not forget the juices!!  Carrot and beet juice everyday! Other than the juices I’m really only drinking water.  My Javiee also found a way to make it more healthy and more tasty…lol. We use our ninja blender to make fresh pineapple, strawberry, blackberry and blueberry water.  With a packet of stevia, it’s yummy!  Stevia is the only sweetener in our house now…no more Splenda for us.  Changing the way I eat was extremely hard in the beginning.  Now I guess I’m just used to it.  If you really look at what’s in the food we eat, it’s a lot easier not to eat it!

You would think between chemo and the new diet that I would be a skinny minnie by now!  No, I have only lost 4 pounds since this whole ordeal started (2 pounds would have to be the ta ta’s..lol) That’s a good thing!  It means I’m being well taken care of!
