It was another sweltering day today. Thankfully, I actually feel better. My body is not as painful as it was from my first round of chemotherapy which is two different types. My second dose was the “lesser” of the two and so far, not as hard on me. I seem to have more energy today which I am attributing to having good luck with bowel movements. It probably sounds gross, but it really make me feel better and less bloated. I drank 3 glasses of my super green Odwalla which may have been the helper.
I continue with all of my herbal supplements such as Protandim that I got from a website called livelifehealer.com, tumeric, chlor oxygen, coral calcium and all kinds of vitamins and even a multi-vitamin. I have been taking extra strength Tylenol for headaches and body aches. I do not want to take anything much stronger unless absolutely necessary.
My children got a fish we had never heard of called basa. It was on sale today and since we are on such a tight budget, thought we could try it. They put an egg batter with panko, salt, pepper, paprika and fried it. Okay frying is not the best, but it was very good. Kind of a cross between sole and cod. It also did not have bones in it and was light on my stomach. I also had fresh beets and endive. It did pretty good eating.
I also had enough energy to get in our pool (we have a dough boy) and that cooled me off. Then as a special treat, my children treated me to the last Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises,which was very good. Speaking of the movie, it was so horrific to hear of the tragedy in Colorado with the mass shooting of audience members. My heart goes out to all affected by this very sad tragedy.
No matter how hard or wonderful each day is they are blessings and a gift.
