Why these foods, well I had a PET/CAT Scan yesterday and this is all I could eat 24 hours before, it wasn't easy. I am not a huge fan of eggs,so I ate some cheese for my lunch, then my son who sings in a Swedish Choir had a performance. All this delicious food was set out for the people who attended. There wasn't one thing on those tables I could eat, even though I had restricted foods from my diet before, this was incredibly hard. I tried to smile as my Husband and son enjoyed every bite they took. Feeling like I was suffering from starvation I made a steak, green beans and asparagus for dinner, now I felt satisfied. The reason for the scans is to see if my chemo was successful, I have had breast cancer 3 times and I hope the scan declares me cancer free. I am waiting for my results and I feel positive that I will hear good news from my doctor. I also wanted to add that the reason for eating these things is they require you to eat no carbs, in order to perform these tests. They inject you with a substance that will illuminate cancer if it is found. I am leaning on God, I am going to be a survivor!
