The tobacco cravings are ALOT less often and that is a huge relief!
Yesterday at the doctors office, I asked if my excessive gas was part of the smoking quit and the doctor agreed that it was. It was embarrassing that when I coughed, I also had a little gas. My daughter said "IT SURE SMELLS BETTER THAN YOUR SMOKING" and she was right.
I'll be in the hospital most of next week so won't be keeping up with the Journals.... but won't be smoking either. I'll let you all know how everything turns out. I learned that the cancer is definitely treatable, which is a relief to me. The pneumonia is "incapsulated" and not treatable at this stage, but soon, hopefully. They are going in and taking samples of a lymph node above my heart and the tumor; the following day they'll do a PET Scan and a bunch of other tests.
Ahhhhhh... Breakfast in bed at the hospital. (I'll miss my pepsi though - It's hard to be completely good)
39 1/2 days of FREEDOM FROM TOBACCO. Oddly, some (or at least one - sometimes I exaggerate) of my ancestors brought Tobacco to New Amsterdam, from Amsterdam, and grew it for the West India Company and Van Rensaelaer, the Patroon of New Amsterdam.. Odd to think that what brought my ancestors to these shores, has turned into such a threat to every one of our lives.
