Joe Frank Update: 8/28/2017

We saw the surgeon again and learned that the surgery will be broader in scope than we realized. It is tentatively set for September 19th.

Joe and I are continuing to keep a close eye on his diet to ensure he gets at least 90 grams of protein a day, while monitoring sodium intake. I found a great app (Cronometer) that allows me to scan barcodes of packaged foods. It then calculates everything automatically. It also has a huge database of everything else. So, I plug in the food, and the app enters vitamins, minerals, carbs, lipids and proteins for each item. Throughout the day, we know exactly where he is in terms of reaching his targets.


With love…
