Yesterday was the big day at the doctor, but unfortunately, he didn't have any news on my biopsy yet. I have to wait until next week to find out. My bf and I took a trip across on the ferry to the mainland and spent the day together. We had anticipated seeking out a juice bar, but in the end we settled for making a large grapefruit, orange juice when we got home.
My thoughts are rattled by the possibility of having cancer, but my family has been dismissive of my fears. It seems so easy for them to assume everything is fine, and in their assurance, I feel my worries, horror, and 'what if's' go unacknowledged. Nobody wants to talk about the possibility, which I guess is something I need to meet head on-while they would rather not think about it.
The end of the juice fast is near-tomorrow I will begin eating solid fruits to prepare for the food and wine festival on Saturday. I've lost 10 pounds so far, but more importantly I feel healthy.

Apologies for not blogging over the weekend-I was very busy, and I find once you hit the 5 day mark there isn't much to say on the topic of juice fasting. I have one more week to go-although I had forgotten that I had purchased tickets months ago to the food and wine festival which is taking place this weekend, so I will probably end my fast a little early in order to take part.
Today is two weeks since my surgery, and the swelling has much improved. I am off to the doctor this morning to check my thyroid hormone levels, and tomorrow I meet with my surgeon to find out the results of my biopsy.
This morning I had a lovely peach carrot orange juice topped up with coconut water.

So I woke up with a migraine this morning, which is why I'm only writing my blog now. Yesterday I got good news, the sale of my cabin is going through and I can start looking for a new home. This is a big step for Simon and me, since we have both owned houses before but not together. Currently I have been renting the cabin out and we are renting a townhouse downtown. I love the location here, but the rent is pricey. We have been looking at a couple heritage homes on a couple acres near the ocean. Very exciting.
I spent a few hours writing yesterday as well. Editing is my least favorite part-but years of marking essays, makes it easier.
Yesterday's juices were orange carrot grapefruit for breakfast, green apple spinach and cinnamon for lunch, and peach apple orange for dinner.
Not much else to report-I didn't weight myself today because of the headache. More tomorrow when I'm feeling better :)
