Sugar, my sweet dear friend....please go away

I have been trying to break up with you for weeks.  Yet, it seems you are not ready to go. Every time, I look at what I thought was healthy and without sugar, there you are.....lurking around the corner, just being yourself or waiting to enter my body to become sugar. A wolf in sheep's clothing you are! I love you, but you are killing me here.

I need some distance from you. This is why my dates with John will shift from eating out to visits to the farmer's market.  It will be easier to recognize you.

Please, just go away!

Ok, enough of that rant.  My next scans are 11/06. John and I will meet with Dr. Pappa that week for measurements.  Another set of eyes and brain on the case.  I'm looking forward to seeing what he comes up with.  To date, I trust the measurements from dr. Patel, but still curious about the discrepancies between her measurements and those from the Austin radiologists.  CC and I really liked meeting dr. Pappa last time and felt he was patient with our questions and positive about my case.

It's been 3 weeks that I have attempted to eat a healthier diet.  Seems I'm on the road, but not really there yet.  John and I are going to have change where we shop for this to really happen. My dear friend Christy has sent me a juicer, so I'll be trying out some of the recipes from the websites that I got from A family friend, David Spencer and Christy as well.

Gearing up for UT installation of One Million Bone it's been a whirlwind of a semester even with all of the support and help.  I am looking forward to a calmer semester in the spring.

Thank you to everyone who has donated! I haven't used the money yet.  I'm saving it for a trial that may require several plane trips. If I don't ever need that, I hope to pay it forward.  I will keep you posted. Many gracious thank yous.

Peace, love, acceptance, Kara

  1. So, you must be bonkers, oops I mean really healthy and going crazy with that pesky sugar that is ...everywhere! I can see how going all natural would be a healthy choice and you will definitely feel so much better, but I hope you are continuing to find tasty food so you can keep your physical strength up.
    Your caring family and friends are all that is needed to keep your spiritual strength up, well that and a continuance of prayer and meditation. Keep up the good work and those that share your goal and who love you dearly will join together to continue our spiritual onslaught on your cancer.
