So here is an amusing tid-bit. We received a phone call from the lead oncologist for the trial. He told Terence he should try eating fattier foods, because in “like” studies, it shows that the medicine is easier metabolized.
I am amused. We’ve just spent the last 14 months learning how to eat right, re-training our habits and have a genuine commitment to it! We’ve met with cancer nutritionists and nutritionists in general; have increased our grocery bill (organic and healthy foods are more expensive), and I have had to learn how to cheerfully cook healthy dinners!!!!!!!!!!!
We haven’t had further clarification- but I am guessing our Dr. is referring to “good” fats, such as avocados and such, not pizza, hamburgers, ice cream or nachos, right?
Meanwhile, Terence decided to have Pizza for lunch :) That’ll probably come to end tomorrow when our Dr. calls back to put in plain words what a “fattier” dinner is!
Prayer request: We need wisdom when to listen and trust the doctors and when to discern what’s right for ourselves.
