I decided that even with my current level of Steroid & Chemo psychosis it was probably safe to post pictures. Today was doctor day and I wish they wouldn’t do it on the day after chemo. I’m sure I sound like a crazy person. Had to sit through a lecture on weight loss from the doctor, and before that met with the nutritionist who was amazed by my fantastically creative diet. 🙂 She also made me cry! It wasn’t in sadness about my lack of Mexican food but instead in joy about my wonderful family.
My phone had 483 pictures on it. Oops. You only get a half dozen. Then I accidentally deleted the remain off my phones. Oops! This is why I do not work on Friday, I am afraid I would delete a server.
This is the food that is currently keeping me awake and happy. The all purpose sweet potato. I scrubbed up a bunch then baked them in foil. After they cooled I wrapped them in plastic wrap and threw them in the freezer. I can thaw them out and throw them in my mini food processor and then add cinnamon & honey, or salt & pepper depending on my whim.
This is pureed steamed cauliflower, turnip greens & parsnip. I think the greens were a bad idea. They are not digesting well. But, I like the flavor with a little olivio and salt & pepper.
Pop it into the processor and good to go! Tonight I think I will try peas and carrots,
This was a facebook picture I put up yesterday but it was too cute not to put here as well. My beagle was very upset when I came home yesterday and went to bed instead of feeding her. She kept flopping onto her side and then staring up at me in different positions trying to prove to me that she needed to eat or the circumstances would be dire.
Yogurt, Frozen Blueberry, Frozen Banana in a blender. NICE!
Memorializing what was supposed to be my very last blood draw in an arm. It wasn’t.
This nice nurse had recently transferred from a different hospital and was learning all of the new equipment. After the four IV try on my already bruised and battered arms a different nurse came and did it.
I would like to say that I caught my husband as he was about to vomit from the grossness of it all, but alas, it was just a cough.
Immediately after they put in the port.
My first chemo with the port! The port site itself is still pretty sore but the chemo drugs did not hurt. Six hours of no hurt. It was wonderful . Sadly when they took off the dressings for the first time since the surgery they found infection at the top site. Where that band-aid is. It’s just a surface one but 1.) something more to watch, 2.) annoying since that means I got the infection in the operating room.
This is what it looks like now. One very big very ugly bruise! It’s way uglier than it looks in this picture.
I’m like a little kid aren’t I, showing off my booboos. 🙂
