Today I watched the World Cup game Nigeria vs. Argentina. Argentina won. If I have to guess, I bet Argentina will win the 2018 World Cup.
Update: Lol, nevermind. France won.
I followed my strict regimen I developed:
- Exercise at least 10 minutes walking on the treadmill
- Ride at least 1 hour on the gym bike
- Walk 10,000 steps (tracked by my Fitbit)
- Eat a salad or another vegetable dish
- Drink a protein shake
Following my regimen is important. It guarantees that once I get out of the Ronald McDonald house I’ll be able to have the capacity for normal activities (such as walking around school), it builds a basis for any sports I’ll want to play, and I can focus on eating enough food everyday.
A Make-A-Wish representative visited me today. Make-A-Wish is a non profit that provides “wishes” to children with critical illnesses. She asked me what I wanted for my wish. I don’t know.
I thought about putting solar panels on the roof of my house, but my Mom said that would be a waste of a wish. Then, on the spot, I got it! I would meet up with a chef to create multiple simple, healthy recipes I can eat. Throughout my life, I’ve had no appetite. I don’t eat enough everyday, so through my gastral tube I insert half of my calories. After transplant, I have an appetite so now I eat enough calories everyday. If I made recipes with a chef, it would help me eat normally.
The representative and my mom thought that’d be a great idea. They even said that I could format those recipes into a cookbook, and share it with other patients that have chronic illnesses. I’m really excited about this.
