Oh dear. Another phone call on Monday and the operation has been postponed again. This time until 3rd November. Apparently the anaesthetist is on holiday.
I have spent the past couple of days feeling rather miserable, mainly because of having to restart the Liver Reduction Diet. I am finding it really hard going on it, and managed to brighten things up over the weekend by making a simple vegetable broth using Japanese brown rice miso paste as the stock base.
I managed to make a pan full and have a mug whenever I felt pangs of hunger, adding a little bit of sliced chicken on day 2. I skimmed it several times to ensure there was no fat, and had my blender been working, I probably would have used it to blitz it.
This was the basic recipe:-
If you’ve never heard of miso paste, it’s a paste similar to Marmite and found in wholefood shops, it comes in several flavours. I bought the brown rice and barley flavours. I let Sharron, my bath nurse try the barley version and she said it was rather tasty.
So now diet is off, although I am trying to just rein myself in to 1200-1400 calories a day. Diet starts again on Monday week.
Not good today either, legs have started going haywire again, and I suspect we may be having a recurrence of the cellulitis. I was hoping to go and see one of my brothers at the weekend and take part in a quiz. We shall assess things tomorrow and make a decision.
Back with my angry head on in a while in a soapbox posting.
