Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger

Way, way back when I was first starting to eat again after treatment, my strongest desire was for a cheeseburger.

Not just any cheeseburger, but a cheeseburger from Tasty Burger.

It's a small chain in Boston. I used to eat lunch there when I worked near the original location a few years ago.

In the fall of 2013 when I was craving that cheeseburger I was a long way from eating it. It took months to get back to eating most normal foods.

Plus, ground meat has been one of the most hit-or-miss foods. It must be the fat content or something else that varies with the particular meat: sometimes the texture of ground beef is fine and sometimes it is disgusting. Ground turkey has been really bad each of the few times I've tried it.

Today was my routine surveillance check-up at Dana-Farber, with Dr. Chemo.

All was well, of course.

It's now past two years since the end of treatment. Dr. Chemo said I'm now "on cruise control".

Nine months until my next appointment with her.

It so happened that my appointment ended at lunch time and Wonderful Wife and I were hungry. Tasty Burger is right down the street.

The result?

It was delicious!

How's that for a long range milestone?
