My favorite breakfast is a treat:
39 grams blueberries (chopped), 69
grams grapes (also chopped), 13 grams
(chopped and roasted), 69 grams
yogurt (plain and nonfat). My favorite part of eating breakfast
is the joy warming tongue and thought… as I sip
my magic brew: one cup of Turkish
(with 1 teaspoon raw sugar & a pinch
I don’t have one, but I am
delighting in food

(this is a candid picture of my taste buds, at breakfast time… honest!)
if you read “We Will Dance this Rotten World Better”, then
you probably noticed that my gallbladder is a tad stony and my liver is a bit fat.
After the first gallbladder attack and a test (or 5), my doctor says
there is no inflammation (wooohooo!) and the surgeon says that if the
gut-ripping pain doesn’t return (and I am willing to eat a low-fat *high deliciousness*
diet), I might be able to keep my
gallbladder. I really like choices, particularly if they might
involve me not losing another chunk of flesh (or more teeth).
So, in 2022, my resolution-like plan is to make my low-fat diet fun and delicious,
and try to hold on to what remains of my flesh—really, a boob and some teeth should be more than enough tribute
for the chronic illness monster!
