Scans a Non-Event

I went to my  chemo and radiation docs today. There I was given confirmation of what I knew to be the case: the PET scan and MRI I got last week show the tumor gone and no traces of any metastasis.

Next.

The average of two scales (why is it so hard to have accurate and precise scales?) put my weight around 145 or 146. Not bad. I was told 3 lbs/month is a good average for weight gain, so it will take almost one year to get back to my usual 175. Now I’m not quite so impatient to add weight. This will prevent me from doing much stupid in the kitchen, and stick to my goal of adding weight WHILE eating some sort of anti-cancer diet.

I  think dry beans are going to be a large part of my diet. Got any suggestions? No fart jokes either, clown!

No new Oncopix, so here are some pix of Suzy Wong over the last three weeks.
