I feel great. Chemo/radiation brain is finally going away. I eat well and have regained most of my weight. That is an ongoing battle. I am trying to stay above 140 lbs, but it doesn’t take but a day or two of a few less calories to drop back to 139. I don’t think I will ever see my happy number of 149 again. But 142 is good...much better than last June’s 128!
I posted a photo of TJ and me out to eat on our anniversary. I think that I look healthy again.
I do have dry mouth but I have figured out ways to handle it. Some of my taste buds are not yet back to normal...or they are a new normal. Plus, I have trouble with dry foods like chips, crackers cheese, and red wine. But these are minor trade-offs to have fought cancer and to have won the battle!
Happy Independence Day to you all!🇺🇸🇺🇸
