I have been busy doing absolutely nothing the last few weeks. Or rather, I have been busy enjoying life to the fullest so I have not written any posts lately.
My health is pretty good. However, the pain in my knees and heels will not go away. I don’t know if it is “left overs” from the Taxol chemo, or if it is new side effects from the Letrozol pills. They are my anti estrogen pills to prevent recurrence. The amount of possible side effects is just crazy. It even says in the package: ” Do not get alarmed when reading this…”. I will have to take them for 5 years. Took one this morning as well, now only 1808 pills to go.
My radiation has been postponed to May 23. I have been at the Radiumhospitalet and met my new doctors and nurses. All preparations are done, and I am marked for radiation. The lines are done with markers, but the circles (I have 3) are tattoos. They will fade in the years to come.
Spring has come to Oslo, today is a wonderful sunny day. We have had some of those and have been dining on the balcony. We have also had a dear friend, Tommy, a food and wine lover as well, over to dinner. We served scallops, trout and creme brulee + Chardonney and a Sautern. Silje helped me in the kitchen and with the dessert. I am getting more and more hungry as I write…. must have food… soon…
We have also visited one of our favourite pizza restautants in Oslo: Santinos on Youngstorget. Hawaii pizza (pepperoni and pinapple) + Brunello. No wonder Jarle is smiling! In the background our favourite waiter who is from Brazil. He is always very attentive and friendly and provides superb service (Bom Dia, Michael 😃).
