Test Post

Date: 2013-07-31 10:16:34


This is just an initial test post to see if I can I use the new Android app with my smartphone.
It looks pretty good. I really like the action of being able to dictate rather than type since I'm such a slow typist. Lol!

I suspect this is actually going to change the nature of my entries.

More later.

Cheers!

Well, THIS Is Embarrassing!

Hello Diary!

It seems that I've fallen a bit behind lately despite dire warnings from the diary server! Lol!

I notice that my vast fan base isn't blogging much either. That's alright, it's hard to think of stuff to write about.

My last PSA came back at <0.1! Just as we hoped. Great news but it can change any time for the worse. There really in no real CURE for this disease, just remission.

Cancer bites!

I think I lost my followers because I'm so fucking boring and pessimistic. They're right! :)

Oh yeah, I forgot, not too surprisingly I've been diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic. What fun! I'm not surprised though as I've really set myself up for it.

Not too bad though. Now I get to prick my finger instead of finger my prick twice a day! ;)

They have me on 500mg. of Metformin for a while to see how that works.
Glucose values seem to stay around 150 or so while fasting.
I'm just getting used to this.

I'm trying to get out and walk for 20 or 30 minutes each day. It's really hard! I can't believe how out of shape I've let myself become!

I'm also trying to get used to a low fat, high carb diet versus the high fat ultra-low carb ketogenic diet that I was on before.
Not losing much weight with this diet though.
Actually, I'm still at 290. No wonder it's so hard to walk briskly!

Well, the wife just walked in so I guess I'll go and help her with dinner. More later as I think of it.

Cheers!

It's That Time Again

Date: 2013-07-06 21:29:23


On Monday, I get my blood drawn for my next PSA. It's been a year now since the surgery and I sure hope it is good news this time.
The stress between the time I get the blood drawn and the time I receive the results is incredible! The last time I had this done I thought I was going to have a heart attack!

The last values were 0.01. Were looking for <0.01 this time. If they report that, it means that the PSA level is undetectable on the standard test.
Wish me luck! ;)

*Sips a cheap Pinot Noir*

Spell checker apparently doesn't like French! Lol!

Well, that's amusing. I went and had dinner and totally forgot I was writing this. Now it's around two hours later and time for bed. I've been up since 5 am.

More this week.

Cheers!
