Doctor, Doctor . . Can't you see I’m burning, burning (calories)?

November 24, 2004
I don’t know if I mentioned that I did take my chest xray on Monday and that the radiologist told me it was negative. Guess that goes to show you just how much I like to broadcast good news about myself, huh?

The thing is, I still have to go to the oncologist today. And I’m dreading it a bit because I made rash promises of being “unrecognizably thin” by the next time he saw me. And guess what? I am not. I’m thinking of printing out the Nuts Versus Berries page so I can somehow show him that even though I probably weigh exactly the same as I did a year ago – I had ballooned up quite a bit between last November and May. AND thus I did sort of keep the promise – just not totally.

I don’t know if I ever actually confessed just how much I ballooned up… You would never guess, really. Well – maybe – after seeing that picture. Nah – I’m not going to say. Some things are just better left unsaid.

Anyway – so all morning in bed I was rehearsing what I was going to say to the doctor – if I was going to even broach any of the subjects I was so desperate to discuss last week. Somehow – ALL of the symptoms have just flat out disappeared. Figures. Although I still have the shoulder pain. But – the chest pain, trouble breathing, depression – gone. At least for the moment. I’m sure it will come right back the second I step out the doctor’s office.

Anyway – tonight I have to make the pie. This isn’t just any pie, mind you. It’s a homemade, from scratch, cooked on the STOVE custard, chocolate pie that would make anyone slap every member of their family, alive or dead. It’s so good. The only thing – it’s tricky. When you’re working with a cooked custard, you have to get things just right. And then there’s the whole meringue business – which almost seems like luck, and not skill, if it comes out perfect.

Anyway – I’m crampy – which means that I’m not pregnant – yet again. Even though early this morning I thought that surely, I probably was because I was suspicious that I had experienced “implantation bleeding” on Sunday morning. I swear – I think even if I had a hysterectomy, I would still worry about some unplanned, surprise pregnancy.

Anyway – hope things will go well. I’m about to head to lunch.
