Woke up to the sound of rain and thunder this morning, nothing severe, some spring thundershowers. The rain stopped late in the morning, and late in the afternoon, the sun came out and it warmed up to 72°F. My appointment for chemo was at 1... Read more
Dr. Appointment today; low thyroid
Friday, April 26, 2013      9 comments

Today I had an appointment with internist; it was mostly routine, but I did find out I have a low thyroid. It's not uncommon for someone who has been undergoing chemo for as long I have. At least it explains why I have been more fatigued than us... Read more

I have a small house, and a small kitchen, and not a lot storage space. I have a huge cupboard under my kitchen island where I keep my pots and pans, cookie sheets, muffin tins, mixing bowls etc. I had it stuffed full; which when everything... Read more

Had a hard time sleeping Tuesday night, but I made it through a long day at the hospital getting my transfusion. I got there a little bit before 11:30am. They gave me 2 units of blood and I went home around 6:15pm. I didn't get as achy as I... Read more

I did ok handling my fatigue last week; knowing there was a good reason for it helped me not to feel so depressed and "useless". I made sure I got a little activity in each day; nothing strenuous, just mostly staying on top of the laundry and th... Read more

Hard to believe by looking at the calender, here in Michigan, that we are two weeks into April. Last night we had freezing rain that turned into sleet and snow. Woke up to a snow covered yard this morning. This afternoon, there is still snow in ... Read more
Chemo today, and hemoglobin going down again
Tuesday, April 09, 2013      13 comments

Monday, April 08, 2013      8 comments

The weather today is rainy and gloomy, a perfect fit with my mood for most of the day. It's the kind of weather that aggravates my pain issues; today it's the arthritis and sciatica flaring up making my left hip and knee hurt. The pain pill... Read more
A little bit of a tough week, but some postives
Sunday, April 07, 2013      10 comments

I had the past week off from chemo. Often, those weeks are when the fatigue is the worst, and this was one of those weeks. It gets frustrating to start the day thinking of all the things I want to do, then having that energy fizzle out on me by ... Read more

I made it to church this morning, but with the day I had yesterday, I wasn't so sure I was going to. Saturday I woke up at 4am with a terrible burning heartburn. I a... Read more

Tuesday night was a rough night. I tried my new medication, and it made me very, very sleepy, but I could not sleep because of the chemo side effects. For some reason, they worse than they usually are. I sometimes feel crampy hours after a chemo... Read more

I woke up too early again today; the power went out around 6:30am. I knew that because when the power goes out, the surge protector on my computer emits this very loud and annoying BEEP BEEP like every 2 seconds. Had to get up to turn it off, th... Read more
Back to my workouts after 3 days off
Friday, March 22, 2013      9 comments

My shoulder is finally feeling better, but my left "bad" hip is still really hurting. That is not unusual, it usually takes about a week for my injections to really kick in and have a pain killing effect. I skipped working out for 3 days in... Read more
