Checking in with ya'll
Just saw a post from Karen and Sirin and Helen! Yay we are all still here. I am now in Massachusetts receiving treatment with the Dana Farber in Boston. Yesterday I had my infusion of Avastin, CA125 11, all numbers excellent but magnesium – 1.4 (range 1.8) so I started a magnesium oxide 400 mg supplement today. 21 days previously I had an infusion of magnesium. I swam today. Breakfast: organic pancakes with organic maple syrup, blueberries, bananas; cup of black coffee. Lunch: salmon/mixed lettuce/carrot/cottage cheese salad; green tea/lemon/ginger. Dinner: black bean soup/onions/garlic; spinach/basil/cilentro salad; Ritz pita crisps with white sharp and pepper jack cheese slices. Later: dark chocolate and apple slices.
I was so curious about people’s lives when I was first diagnosed 10/13/2016. This is why I share such detail. How were people living. Well I am living quite well thank you very much.
Anyone else find they make comments not appreciated by the infusion nurses? I am taking a sign next time and not speaking with them – just say thank you on my sign and that I am in a silent retreat. This way I will not get their attitude and they won’t get my nervous chatter they apparently don’t appreciate.
The joys of cancer one day at a time.
