Thoughts on Turning 50
Friday, September 27, 2013      28 comments

Today I turned 50, and I am ok with that. I admit, back in my teens and 20's, I thought of 50 as "old". I remember feeling kind of disappointed about turning 30; I admit that part of that was vanity, when age was something I was self consci... Read more

Sunday, September 22, 2013      15 comments

My mom and I made it to the Relay for Life Survivor Celebration. I was glad to be able to participate, but was kind of disappointed with the low turnout this year. It was unfortunate that the whole Relay was poorly planned this year. That isn't ... Read more

Chemo went pretty smoothly yesterday. My appointment was 9am, the same time the clinic opens. There were about a half dozen people in the waiting room and I was the first one called in. I was glad to not have to wait long, but I kind of wish I h... Read more

I did something myself today that I really should have asked someone to do for me. I borrowed my dad's long handled pruning shears from my mom to trim a bush that was way overgrown next to my bedroom window, and I had to hold my arms up do the p... Read more

Monday, September 09, 2013      19 comments

Had a busy day ahead of me; was a little worried last night about how I would get through it because of the fatigue, but I did ok. I am tired, but I feel more like there is a "good reason" for it rather than just the anemia. Today was the m... Read more
Frustratingly Tired
Sunday, September 08, 2013      14 comments

I know my fatigue level right now is from low hemoglobin due to the chemo, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating. I get "tired of being tired", and "taking it easy" gets boring after awhile. ... Read more
Early birthday gifts yesterday
Friday, September 06, 2013      14 comments
