Made the Dip and Post Chemo Ouches

First of all, thank you all so much for the quick response to needing help next week. Looks like I am covered, and have backup. Guess you are reading this blog! So thank you, that is a relief.

Secondly, after an afternoon with no appetite and much GI distress, that recipe below triggered some appetite, and with tired hands, I got up and made it. Yes, it is that easy. I grabbed some rosemary from my garden (thanks Dida for the plant! I use it everyday!) and chopped up some garlic, threw in the parley and olive oil and FINALLY ATE. It cured my stomach distress.

That was last night. Today I woke up kind of racked and achey, and OH the tummy issues. Okay, so I need to whine like a wee lass. oooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwieeeeeeeeeeeee. Anyone seen that last scene in Braveheart? Okay, not THAT bad, but I can start to imagine what that must feel like. Ginger tea helped some. But it is going to be a day of managing the body I can tell. Sigh. I can do it, it is just....I have to come up with a new term here...."body management fatigue syndrome" of BFS for short. To deal with BFS, I must distract myself. I should try to do something crafty. I will use that antsy pent up energy creatively, while sprawled on the sofa with my Zofram and Ginger Tea.

FYI, down below on the sidebar, I added a subscribe button for those of you savvy enough to use newsreaders. I am not one of them. So if you are lost on that point, so am I, so I wouldn't even try to ask me questions about it. I just know the button was available and it will bring the blog to you without you having to check is specifically. If you read several blogs, it might be worth figuring out. Maybe. ?

Chemo can take away my appetite,
but it can't take away my FREEDOM!

(okay, i am really punchy and should not be writing anymore...)
