Thoughts – 12/18/19

I haven’t posted in a while so I thought I’d just throw something up here. I generally only try to post when I have something to say, but I know that people like to know how I’m doing and what’s going on with me.

That said, I’m feeling great. I don’t feel like I have cancer. I don’t have the fatigue or nausea that is so common. I’m eating well, and no one has voiced any concerns about my weight (concern for weight loss).

I found a great recipe for Keto Cinnamon Cheesecake bites online. I really recommend them. The one main change I made to them (accidentally) was to add the cinnamon into the cheesecake filling, instead of layering it. I’m going to be hard-pressed to keep these on hand, as everyone would gobble them up if I gave them half a chance.

I do have another PET scan on Monday, the 23rd. I’m expecting mixed results again. I can tell there is some reduction in my lymph nodes, but don’t have any idea what is going on in my liver. This time around I’m not doing a 72-hour (or even 48-hour) fast before my scan. The last time around I did a 72-hour fast and even though I ate the night before the scan my glucose was still 65. That didn’t sit well with the radiologist or doctor (the doctor wanted me to drink some juice so I wouldn’t pass out on the way home). I expect the report to be ready a few days after the scan, but don’t have a chance to see the doctor until January 9th. We could have maybe done the 2nd, but with some insurance changes they wanted to make sure I didn’t need to get other authorizations that might get delayed.
