    Thanks Gry.

    That was pretty much what I read, though I failed to retain some of the details.

    They go way back, have some impressive nutritional value, and unsweetened, are still just right in their blend of bitter and sweet.

    Thanks trich.

    Yeah, I'll have to track down the spoon lady and see if she knows anything.

    The place we're staying for surgery, etc., apparently has a strict weapons policy; no knives of any kind, other than the utensils available in the common area shared kitchens. So I have to leave my pocket knife, my sidearm, and probably my grapefruit spoons at home, lest we offend someone, and I find myself needing to find new accommodations.... Which I've thought about doing anyway, after the grief I got from a particular staff member there when I was reserving the room for this trip.

    Have a great trip with your son.
    My mother had a home in Scottsdale Arizona for a good while. She and my younger brother moved there from SW Michigan, after I'd left the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for the Yukon Territory in 1977.

    They had an in-ground concrete pool in the back yard, with a patio. There were a couple of grapefruit trees in the back yard, and my morning ritual when I visited there was to take the bong out to the pool area, do some swimming, a few tokes, and then on to what ever.

    Tree-ripened grapefruit, like tree-ripened ANY fruit, is the best I've ever eaten.

    But the little kids down the street would gather up the old, large paper grocery bags, filled to the brim with tree-ripened grapefruit they would pick up off the ground, having fallen from weight and ripeness, and sell a bag of them for $1.00 to $1.50 door-to-door or on the subdivision street corners.

    Reminded me of running up or down Hwy 97, through British Columbia, in the later part of summer or early fall, and getting those same old paper grocery bags, filled to the brim with AMAZINGLY SWEET sweet corn, for about the same money; $1 to $1.50/bag full.

    Extra Large translucent-core apples in the PNW was another source of incredible road food, and on the hwys in Western and Central Washington, getting stuck next to an orchard of Rainier cherries.. Mmmmm.

    We had plum, peach and apple trees in a small orchard as kids, as well as a grape vine/arbor, in SW Michigan. Whether grapes or the other fruit, pre-ripened, they all made for excellent projectiles in skirmishes with neighboring kids. Green grapes fired from a slingshot were the shit.

    Like finding myself late for class with no pencil. It's simply another frustrating moment of not being adequately prepared.

    I researched nutritional values for grapefruit the other night, by the way, and was surprised by a number of things I read. Among them, was that grapefruit are a hybridized citrus, and that this was not originally known, which (once they discovered the history) caused the people involved to rename the things.

    Apparently they were the result of pomelos being bred to another citrus fruit type.

    They're (pink grapefruit) about the last citrus fruit I can eat, and not suffer notable increased glucose levels. I'd gotten to where a half of a little mandarin orange was like eating a ~2 TBSP of refined white sugar.

    Did I mention I like grapefruit?

    Oh, and that we need more grapefruit spoons.

    Well, Weez, the Doc, one of the better surgeons in urology and oncology in the Pacific Northwest, thinks there's 2:1 odds+ of my being cancer free in 5 years, and just over 1:1 odds of my being cancer-free in 10 years.

    I'm either going to have to change those odds some how, or get a whole LOT of stuff accomplished in the next 4 years and 11 months.

    I hate pressure.

    I've come to the realization that we have too few grapefruit spoons in the house. That wasn't today's major news, but it was another minor target identified for correction.

    We reached almost +20 f. on the front porch, in the shade today, so we went to town for the 165 gallons of #1 heating oil I'd been meaning to do, waiting until we got warmer weather.

    Knocked that out, mailed a box of N95 masks to another individual (with a few other needs inside), as well as gathering groceries and treats for the upcoming trip to the Wrangell-St. Elias Range/Park & Preserve, for my younger son's and my annual ice fishing trip.

    It was during this time we were absent that the surgeon phoned and left a message, answering the more recent inquiry for HIS stats, re. a person with my numbers, diagnosis, etc., and the rates or odds of recurring cancer.

    His message stated that, based on my current pathology and diagnosis, I have a 67% probability of being cancer-free 5 years out, and a 52% chance of being cancer-free 10 years out. Neither number sounded like a cast-in-stone guarantee of a blissful ever-after gliding on the wind for as far as Father Time's eyes can see, but they weren't a solid, "You're fucked!" either.

    He added that once we have me opened up, and they are able to do some lab work on parts and pieces they remove, they ought to have a better idea if I'm more or less screwed than we've believed. Nothing is truly known, until it is known, and there's been no F17 PT Scan to show any micro-presence of cancer on surrounding organs, bones, etc., so we'll wait till I'm unconscious on the table.... which ought to serve well to protect me against any shock, if the news is horrible.

    I think that being anesthetized, and off in Never-Never Land with Peter Pan, or running through the poppy fields with Dorothy and Toto, is likely my preferred state of being for receiving ANY horrid news. We'll see.

    I still need to speak with the folks there during pre-op consultation, re. maintaining a vegan diet high in protein and potassium (among other features) and trying to maintain my own Metformin intake, rather than any insulin, as I want my body to continue to work as much as possible under its own power and ability. I don't want any aspect of my being to suffer any further weakening through this. If anything, it needs to be made as strong as possible in all regards, whether lungs and the ability to clear fluids, or sinuses, and the same, or pancreas and the contending with carbs.

    Hopefully the Doc and dietician understand, but all of this is for very clear reasons. But at some point, they're going to be holding the metaphorical steering wheel, and I'll be a mere passenger in a humbling gown with my ass hanging out.

    We have organic butternut squash in the oven, with a smattering of organic coconut oil rubbed into the stab holes left there by forking it a bunch, with a trace of organic maple syrup, black pepper, salt, tiny amount of thyme, all mixed into the coconut oil. The nutritional values for a good butternut squash are really top notch, thus it's become a favorite for my cancer-friendly diet.

    I'd best get going now, as there's still lots to do tonight.
