A chilly, windy Monday
Monday, April 04, 2011
Didn't sleep that well last night; it was stormy all night. I wasn't awake worrying, it was just the noise. We had some heavy rains last night that washed away some more of the snow, but I still have some snow in spots in my yard. Today it is very chilly and windy.
Kind of achy all over today because of the weather. What hurts the most is my hip and knee from the sciatica pain.
I still got a few things done today.
Did a workout with my stability ball.
More laundry today.
Made a batch of peanut butter cookies, not exactly from scratch, but homemade. I used a mix, but I consider them homemade because I had to add water, an egg, and vegetable oil, and I made them at home, LOL! I like them because they do not aggravate my GP symptoms. I am giving most of them to my mom and dad.
I have to fast after 10pm for my lab work tomorrow, though I can still have water. I don't have to fast for the lab work I have for my oncologist, but I also have to have lab work done for my internist, and that is what I have to fast for. I don't mind not eating after 10pm, I'm all done eating for the day by that time anyway. The hard part will be waiting so long to eat tomorrow. My chemo appointment is at 10am, and that is when they will draw the blood through my port. The bad part is, since my oncologist is only in town on Tuesdays, they are usually running behind and my appointments are not usually on time. I normally wait about a half hour in the waiting room, so that means by the time I get called into a room for the chemo, then have my blood drawn, it will probably be close to 11am before I can eat. Thankfully, I only have to get the fasting lab work done just once or twice per year.
