Thursday, December 13, 2012      8 comments

I called my sister this morning, and she was in good spirits. They had her up walking, and it hurts her to walk, but I know that is to be expected with that surgery. She is off the IV now and on oral pain meds. She has had a quite a few v... Read more
Update on my sister and her surgery
Wednesday, December 12, 2012      11 comments

Before I get to the surgery part, I want to tell you a little bit about my sister. She is what many would call "special needs". She was born a preemie, in 1964, only a pound and half. That was before they had a lot of the medical advancements th... Read more
No chemo today, WBC too low
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      11 comments

No chemo today, my white blood count was too low, so now I have to go and get the chemo next week instead of having the week off. Ordinarily, that wouldn't bother me, but I was hoping to be feeling better as it got closer to Christmas. I was h... Read more
Christmas party at church last night
Saturday, December 08, 2012      12 comments

I made it to the ladies Christmas party at church last night. It tired me out, but I'm glad I went. I had to struggle with my energy level a bit in the morning to get my dessert I was bringing to the potluck together, but I got it made. I m... Read more
Oncologist appt. and chemo today
Tuesday, December 04, 2012      15 comments

I had an oncologist appointment and chemo today. I talked about my fatigue with my doctor, and he thinks that besides the hemoglobin being low, that maybe I need more iron also. They will check my iron levels and next week I will probably be get... Read more
Lunch out today

I hate to sound like a broken record, but I am still fighting the fatigue. The first Monday of every month is when I get together with some friends that I use to work with for lunch. We have been doing this since I had to quit working, (if ... Read more

Another project I found to use up my leftover yarn, and also help Operation Christmas Child. I have been making crocheted hair scrunchies. They are not hard to make. Y... Read more
Dragging through the week
Wednesday, November 28, 2012      11 comments

I've been in kind of a funk the past few days, and low on energy. I have this week off from chemo, but last week, when my blood count was done before chemo, my hemoglobin was getting low again. Not low enough to require a transfusion, but I thin... Read more

Back on the Zometa
Tuesday, November 13, 2012      12 comments

Had my chemo today; there was a slight change made in my treatment plan. Still on the Gemzar, but instead of the monthly Aredia (not chemo, but a drug for the bones) I was switched back to Zometa. Something to do with the insurance reimbursement... Read more
A little more tired and sore today
Friday, November 09, 2012      11 comments

I think I might have overdone yesterday, doing too much too soon. Hip is really hurting today. I don't think that mean's that my injection in my hip didn't do any good; I just had it done Tuesday, and it takes some time for them to start working... Read more
It seems my last set of injections might be helping
Thursday, November 08, 2012      11 comments

As I mentioned in my last blog, I had an appointment at the pain clinic on Tuesday. This time, I had some different injections in my left hip and left shoulder. The medications were injected directly into the joints instead of just near the join... Read more
I had a great Sunday

I really enjoyed yesterday's church service; it was Heritage Sunday. Our church is 138 years old. It was originally started by Danish and Swedish settlers; I am Danish on my dad's side and some of my ancestors were among those. I learned a lot o... Read more

My niece and nephew came over today and raked my leaves for me today. I'm so thankful that they are able to do it, and they are happy are to do it for me. It was chilly here today, but the sun was out and the winds finally calmed down. I've... Read more

This morning I got for my groceries, but first I stopped at Dollar Tree. I had my boxes for Operation Christmas Child almost done, but just needed a few more things. The collection week for the boxes is in about 2 weeks, and I just wanted to get... Read more
