Recipe review: Slow Cooker Cream of Chicken and Rice Soup
Thursday, October 25, 2012      8 comments

I made this yesterday, it was yummy! I made a few changes. Since I have gastroparesis, I cannot eat brown rice, so I used white rice instead. I do not like mushrooms, so I added an extra cup of carrots to substitute. I had forgotten to buy... Read more
Aches and pains from the weather last week
Sunday, October 21, 2012      8 comments

It's been a tough week with the aches and pains; the weather made them worse than usual. We had a low pressure system over the area that brought windy, rainy and chilly weather along with it. I did not have chemo last week, but I did need t... Read more

Today, October 13, is National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. Everyone is talking about breast cancer. So why aren’t they talking about the 41,000 of us who die of breast cancer? We are asking that too! As persons with the disease,... Read more

We got a break today from the cold, wet, and windy weather; for today anyway. We are supposed to have rain, possibly some thunderstorms and wind over the weekend. My pain is a little bit better today, and I took advantage of the nice day to... Read more
Good news on the hemoglobin, bad news with headaches
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      9 comments

I had my chemo as usual on Tuesday, and as usual, they did a CBC before starting. The good news is that since the transfusion, my hemoglobin went from 7.9 to 11.1. I also had my Aredia. Since I've had the chemo two Tuesdays in a row now, I get n... Read more
Day after transfusion, and thoughts on donating blood
Friday, October 05, 2012      17 comments

It was a long day at the hospital yesterday, but it turned out to be worth it. Part of what made the day so long was the transfusion getting started over an hour late. I had to be there by 8am, and I got there on time, but when the nurse from th... Read more

Yesterday's birthday celebration
Saturday, September 29, 2012      11 comments

Had my birthday celebration yesterday, but I was too tired to post about it then. Had a hard time sleeping Thursday night for some reason, so along with the anemia from the chemo, I was extremely fatigued by the time I got home. I went with... Read more
Birthday is today, but celebrating tomorrow
Thursday, September 27, 2012      14 comments

Not doing any celebrating today, but it's still a better birthday than I've had in the last few years. When I had my birthday in 2010, I was too sick from the chemo that day to care, and last year, my birthday was exactly one month after my dad ... Read more
Finished the afghan
Sunday, September 23, 2012      19 comments

I finished my crocheted afghan today. I am surprised at how soon I finished it, I wasn't trying to hurry, it just didn't take as long as I expected it would. It was also larger than I thought it would be. Oh, the pattern did state the finished s... Read more
Update on lab work, and had to quit the Celebrex
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      11 comments

I've been more fatigued than usual for the past several days. Didn't make it out for my groceries yet this week either. If I don't make it to the store tomorrow, my mom will pick up what I need when she does hers. Fortunately, I don't need much ... Read more

My mom and I got to the Relay around 3pm yesterday. We met my BFF Rhonda and my sister Karen there. I found my friend Von's team tent and she said sales on our craft items were going well. I don't know yet how much in total the team raised, the ... Read more
Continuing on with the chemo
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      14 comments

Well, I am still on the Gemzar. Even though my bone scan report was stable, my oncologist wants to keep me on the chemo, because it's the chemo that is keeping it stable. I'm a little disappointed that I am not getting a break from the chemo, bu... Read more
Oops, I did it again! (overdid it, that is)
Thursday, September 06, 2012      10 comments

Shopped at 3 stores today; should have split the trips up into two days, but once I was dressed and out, I decided to make the most of it. So many times, because I never know how I will feel on a given day, I will plan an outing and when the day... Read more
