    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I'll be driving my parents to Los Angeles tomorrow for my mother's new problem: Anal Cancer. The radiation for her breast cancer went really well, and now there's this new issue. My father is very pessimistic (realistic?) about it. He thinks because there were two random tests (mammogram and colonoscopy) that turned out 100% cancerous, that she's got it everywhere. That's a pretty small data sample.

    We'll see.
    Good for now.
    Cheers!
    Sorry to hear about your Mum Charlie. I hope the news is not all bad but it sure doesn't sound too good.

    You are doing really well, I see, almost 100lbs lost. Congratulations!

    Hi Friends!
    My mother has a small tumor in her bum that's growing slowly. She has decided that since she's old (77) and her family doesn't live to be really old (early 80's) that she doesn't want chemo and radiation treatments for that. She can only sit, with her degenerating discs in her back, can barely make it to the restroom in time (multiple times a day), and can only sleep on one side, so no chemo and radiation. Her bum would be as red and swollen as a baboon's!

    Surgery is out because she has congestive heart failure and would likely die on the table. She's going to opt for better eating, going to her exercise class, and enjoying what life she has left.

    She has another sigmoidoscopy scheduled for today to check her lymph nodes and see what's going on.

    Thanks for the positive energy, prayers and good thoughts!
    They are all very much appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Hi Odille,
    Long time no hear!

    No, it doesn't sound good but I think it's a sane choice to forgo chemo and radiation. Sane people know when to say ENOUGH!

    Almost 100lbs, but not quite there yet. I've been for the better part of three months FLAT! I haven't been exercising nearly enough, or getting enough sleep. I've also been boozing more lately, but I've stopped that for this week, just to see.

    I hope things are well for you Odille! I haven't heard from you in such a long time!
    Don't be a stranger (you certainly can't be stranger than me!)

    Cheers!

    I just heard Latest in Paleo episode 74: House of Experiments. In it they mention several "health hacks" (something that works, but is not sustainable as a lifestyle). One was to eat potatoes for a week, to drop 10 lbs. I've been interested in eating the occasional potato, to help kick start the weight loss. I think I'll pick up a bag of tubers at Sam's later today, and attempt it next week. I've been weighing FLAT for the last 3 months and need a break-out.

    Cheers!

    Hi Friends!
    I've also decided to forgo the boozing [cry].
    When whiskey just doesn't taste STRONG anymore, it's time to stop for a while.

    Good for now.

    Cheers!

    On vacation in Big Bear. Just a change of scenery. It should be interesting to see if there's anything for me to eat at all the restaurants we're likely to stop at. We first had a late lunch at Maggio's Italian Restaurant. I ordered a family size antipasto salad and was very sparing on the Italian dressing. The family all had a serving, and I ate the rest while they had pizza. Good so far. I've gotten 3.5 hours of low level exercise (hiking/walking) in this week. Hopefully I can bring it up to ~5 hours in the next 48 hours.

    Good for now!
    Cheers!
