Dear Logbook, nineteenth day of the first trip.
Yesterday, as I told you, there were no great stories or exciting voyages to tell. After arriving home from the walk, it was a quiet afternoon. I want to emphasize that from the visit to the ship and from the consultation with the Captain of the Diet, I found that one of the important things for a person who is suffering from a cancer treated with “liquids” or chemotherapy is that you should never lose weight, if we are talking about being in a normal situation, as my case could be. I am 1.63 m tall and I weigh 59 kg. She has made adjustments to my diet on which we will introduce more “fats.” This does not mean that I am feeding on pizzas all day. But I will add more fats such as olive oil, cream, cheese, nuts, etc. In addition, I will drink full-cream milk and / or juice at meals. It is about giving my body energy. As in my case, I have not lost my appetite for the moment, I am not losing much weight. In fact, I am regaining weight lately despite walking about 10km every day. But I think it’s good to review it. If you go through a disease in which cancer cells together with the chemical treatment to end with them spend a lot of energy, you have to add more calories to your life, so as not to use reserves that can be vital later in this race. Dear Diary, after explaining the reason why the sailor has to be given more energy, I will continue.
The night was as usual.
And today is different from the last days. There is no threat of rain. So today, after leaving the little sailors at school, I will take the carriage to go to the ship. There I have had the meeting with the Captain of the “Liquids”. I have been told that everything is going very well. And he has given me the tickets to board for another exciting cruise at sea on Monday. I am looking forward to starting it. It is other 21 days of emotions.
Diary, we are now on the nineteenth day of this first 21-day trip. Who would tell me! For the moment, physically I am fine. And mentally, I think I am better now than I was 20 days ago.
After the consultation had finished, I went for a walk and explored the northern part of the city. Then I returned home and had lunch.
Today, as the national day of “KannelBullé” or Cinnamon Bun is celebrated, it is time to follow the tradition and take one. Here you are information about this tradition https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinnamon_Roll_Day
Then a friend of ours and her children will come and visit us. How grateful we are to visitors! And how wonderful it is to be able to share stories, discussions and opinions with them!
And we will close the day as usual, time to have dinner and get some sleep.
Diary, tomorrow it will be around 0 degrees with an estimated maximum of 7 degrees and northern wind … Here you can feel the cold winter, so I will get dressed like an onion and go for a walk. I will tell you more tomorrow.
