    Default Calabrese salami

    Volpi, of course. I actually *lost* a pound over the 4 day TG
    weekend, so I'm rewarding myself with salami and some Mich Ultra.
    First beer I've had in over a month. I've pretty much decided that
    I'm not much of a fan of pork unless it is made into sausage or
    bacon. This Calabrese stuff is delicious. I might like it even
    better than the hot sopressata.

    Aren't you worried about CAD? Calabrese salami does not sound like a
    lean source of protein ;-)

    Bryan and I were having a discussion about trans farts and CAD.
    Limiting or eliminating trans fats from your diet is 10th on the list
    of ways to help prevent CAD, and of course Bryan whips it out and
    cites it in support of his rants against trans fats. But he completely
    or majorly ignores the first 9 way to help prevent CAD! ;-)

    For the carb count of an Ultra you can have half a Guinness. Just
    sayin' that sometimes flavor counts more than quantity ...

    Bryan is low carbing. The advice against saturated fats applies
    exclusively to low fatters and does not apply at all to low carbers.
    It's not the saturated fat; it's the sum of saturated fat plus excess
    carbs that's the problem. Low carbing, especially ketotic low carbing,
    is beneficial to the heart because the ketones help dissolve arterial
    plaque that has not yet calcified among other reasons.

    What is really nice is a pint glass with 12oz of Ultra and 4oz of
    Guinness Extra Stout.

    They still don't teach that stuff to medical professionals. Boy, I
    had a high fat meal this evening.
    A bunch of bean sprouts, a bell pepper, two large jalapenos, a
    smallish onion, 4 cloves of garlic, and a third of a pound of oyster
    mushrooms stir fried in a *lot* of peanut oil. No meat because I had
    a chicken breast for lunch, and eggs with cheese for breakfast with
    two tasteless sausage patties at the hospital.
    We got very good news. My wife had been diagnosed with breast
    cancer. She had the mastectomy and reconstruction today, and they
    couldn't tell until they do the surgery, whether it had spread. They
    remove the closest lymph nodes and analyze them on the fly. If they
    find cancer there, they remove a bunch more nodes. She had two nodes
    removed and both were cancer free. She still has to do a course of
    chemo, but the prognosis is excellent for the cancer being completely
    cured, and she didn't have all those extra lymphatic tissue under her
    arm removed, so very little/no damage to her right arm. The doctors
    say that there's no reason why she shouldn't be paddling her kayak by
    the time the water gets warm this Summer.
    The plastic surgeon is excellent. A few weeks ago we spent a morning
    looking at pictures of her work. Under other circumstances, a morning
    spent looking at photos of breasts would be a good morning indeed, but
    I was scared that she might end up dying prematurely, but after the
    healing, and a few months of chemo, she should be perfectly healthy,
    and at least in clothes, will look better than she did before the
    surgery, that is, after her hair grows back.
    I almost lost her a couple of years ago, and her case was written up
    in medical literature:
    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/589497
    She was in such bad shape that in the hospital, they asked us if we
    were Catholic, because they would have called a priest to administer
    last rites.
    The next few months will be unpleasant for her, but it's unlikely that
    I'll end up widowed any time in the near future. I am feeling pretty
    darned happy right now.

    i don't think i've had calabrese salami. i've been googling it, and a
    couple of sites said that it has paprika in it, as well as hot
    peppers. i've had spicy paprika salami before. i wonder if it's
    similar?

    Very late in responding to this, but I'm very glad it was detected and
    removed early. Very good news!

    Bryan, I missed the post where you said your wife had the breast
    cancer diagnosis and surgery. I'm sorry to hear she, you and your son
    have to go through all that stress, but I'm glad to hear "so far, so
    good". My fingers are crossed for her.

    I missed it too, and no wonder, why is it posted under salami?
    I hope she is okay.

    Guess I missed this post, Bryan. I'm happy at the good news -- for all
    of you -- and I sure hope she's paddling that kayak come summer.

    To every single one of you who wished my wife well, thank you.
    Betsy is a wonderful person, and some of you probably wonder if that
    really is the case, considering she is married to *me*. I'm only half
    kidding.

    She is very non-vindictive, and we've kind of agreed to disagree over
    that, and
    certain other core mindsets, but we are very in love with each other.
    I feel
    that even my side of the family likes her more than they do me. I'm
    perhaps a
    bit stunted in my intensity--Mr. Kuthe constantly goes off on me about
    that,
    here and elsewhere--but I am what I am, and as John has pointed out,
    am not
    likely to change much. I sure am a good husband, in that I am very
    unselfish
    toward her, and I'm doing as much as I can to help her through this
    stuff as I
    can, but she wants to be as self-sufficient as possible; it's hard for
    her to
    feel dependent upon others.

    Again, thanks for the well wishes. They are more deserved than you
    even know.

    --Bryan
