Cancer Bitch - On the Upswing

Got good news today. Dr. Zeng says the tumor has shrunk, and I've gained weight. The bad news - blood pressure is up and I can't eat just everything. (I've demolished entire cartons of Haagen Dazs with the excuse that I've got to get my weight up).

So, I'll allow myself the Eastern Market Lunch crabcake - I'll just skip the french fries and soda.

Also, got to start another round of chemo next week. Sigh.

Great news about the tumor. I wish I were there at Eastern Market enjoying a crabcake and a small celebration with you.

Way to go, Box! When you put your mind to something YOU do it and get results. Go girl, we'll all routing for ya!

Oh, that I was only still in the DC area for the crabs.

Trying to gain some weight myself. The only affordably guilty pleasure: McDonald's shakes (vanilla).

Sigh!

Be good to yourself every day.
