Wicked Early Day Tomorrow

I got one of those automated phone calls from Duke where a computer talks to you about your appointment. The computer wants me to check in for my MRI at 6:30AM. Yikes. That is one early appointment!

Lou and I will probably leave the house at 5:30AM (or a little earlier) to give ourselves time to get to Durham and find this place. It is a children's Hospital about a mile away from the Duke Clinics, where I usually go. (Yesterday afternoon I used mapquest and zoomed right close in the satelite photo.)

We're going to McDonalds for breakfast on the way. That is the one bright spot in the plan.

Speaking of healthy eating ;^) I am thrilled to report that I continue to lose weight. Being diabetic sure makes it easy to follow a food plan! Actually, it would probably be very difficult and annoying if I did not have the fabulous side effect of decreased appetite from the clinical trial drug. (It is so wonderful to not think about food all day long. I think that Ariad needs to look into re-purposing this drug for weightloss. Well, maybe not. I'm not sure that anyone would be so in love with the drug if it weren't keeping their cancer from growing.)
