Finishing Radiation This Week, Starting New Chemo
Sunday, June 23, 2013      18 comments

It was a long week, making the half hour round trip to the radiation center every day, but it went faster than I thought it would. Some days were tougher than others with the pain; the radiation treatments make it flare up worse, which is a norm... Read more
At the halfway point
Wednesday, June 19, 2013      14 comments

After my treatment this afternoon, I will halfway done with radiation. Over the weekend, it seemed as if my arm/shoulder pain was getting a little bit better, but it's been worse again since my treatment on Monday. I was told that the radia... Read more
Calming down a bit this weekend
Sunday, June 16, 2013      12 comments

I am doing better than I was since the last blog I posted. I think I am over the shock of how fast everything seemed to happen last week, and I am coping with it better. I was able to sleep Friday night, and my shoulder pain was better when... Read more
Rough night last night
Friday, June 14, 2013      14 comments

Last night, I was so sleepy; I couldn't stay awake past 10pm. Then I woke up at 2am and couldn't get back to sleep. My shoulder was hurting, and I starting thinking about the new chemo; not just the possible hair loss, but the other side effects... Read more

I started radiation today. The radiation center called yesterday, my doctor there didn't want me to have to wait any longer because of the pain. 1 treatment done, 9 more to go. I am not supposed to exercise with that arm and shoulder til th... Read more
A change in chemo and starting radiation again
Tuesday, June 11, 2013      18 comments

Today has been a very long day. I went in for my chemo appointment, which was at 10:15, and after my blood was drawn for labs, my oncologist came into my room to talk to me. I knew that wasn't a good sign if he had to talk to me before my n... Read more
Latest bone scan report
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      11 comments

My bone scan report showed most of the bone mets are stable, but I do have one new bone lesion, a small one, near the base of my skull. I also have some activity going on my left shoulder, where I have been having pain for quite a long time. The... Read more
Loving my new gas range!
Thursday, May 30, 2013      19 comments

I had my bone scan on Tuesday, it only took 20 minutes, but when you have to lay still, sometimes that can feel like an hour! I don't like it when the scanner is right over my face, (it feels like it's just millimeters from my nose), but once my... Read more
Saturday was good, but tired and hurting today
Sunday, May 26, 2013      8 comments

The weekend started out promising. Saturday morning, my pain level in my left hip and knee was low. Normally, it is really hurting before I even get out of bed, so I was thinking that the fact that I woke up with much less pain meant that the la... Read more
Appointments this week, and help from friends
Friday, May 24, 2013      10 comments

Chemo went fine on Tuesday, but hemoglobin is down again, 9.7. When it falls into the "9s" that is when I start feeling more fatigued. I didn't spend as much time just sitting and waiting that day as I normally do. The hospital lab was right on ... Read more
Update for this week
Saturday, May 18, 2013      15 comments

My blood counts were all ok on Tuesday so I was able to have my chemo. You might or might not remember that when I posted my blog the week before, I wasn't able to have it because the WBC was too low. Very thankful for some helpful people i... Read more
A cold, chilly weekend

It seems like here in Michigan we went from summer to winter within the same week. Thursday, it reached 82°F and was sunny. Friday the rain started, and it turned colder, staying in the 50's. Saturday and Sunday were cold and very windy, with ra... Read more
A haircut and flowers today

Today I had my monthly oncologist's appointment, and also my chemo. It was about a half hour wait in the waiting room before I saw the doctor. He said my lab work looks good, but it's time to have another bone scan. I don't have the appointment ... Read more
Nice weekend
Sunday, May 05, 2013      15 comments

My niece came over Friday afternoon and raked my yard; had quite a bit of debris around from the trees from over the winter. My nephew got my outdoor furniture out of the shed and onto my porch. This afternoon, my niece came over again and mowed... Read more
My mom was just diagnosed with kidney disease
Thursday, May 02, 2013      13 comments

My mom was recently diagnosed with stage III kidney disease. She had her first appointment with the kidney specialist today. It was about a 45 minute trip out of town. I went with her. It sounds like it was caught early enough to still be v... Read more
