Still recovering, but feeling stronger today
Thursday, January 02, 2014      20 comments

My left hip still hurts a lot, but I am no worse off than I was before I had the injections. I know I have to give it more time before I know if this last set will help or not, and I'm also still dealing with the all over joint pain that is a si... Read more
My New Year's Eve; chemo and pain clinic yesterday
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      23 comments

Yesterday was another one of those days in which I had chemo and the pain clinic on the same day. It happens that way sometimes; neither my oncologist or pain specialist are here in town full time, they travel to different areas on different day... Read more
No New Year Resolutions, but I do have hopes
Sunday, December 29, 2013      20 comments

I don't believe in making "New Years Resolutions"; at least not for me. If I feel like I need to change a habit, or do something better, I start working on it right away, rather than waiting for the calendar to say it's January 1st. Even if... Read more

Had another blood transfusion yesterday

Tuesday and Wednesday were long days for me this week. I just had that feeling that my hemoglobin was going to be low when they did my lab work before chemo, and sure enough, it was down to 8.4. At least that explained why I had been extra fatig... Read more
Still fatigued, but better days for Sunday and Monday
Monday, December 16, 2013      11 comments

After having pretty much a "do nothing" day on Saturday, I felt better yesterday. I did not make it to church, was just not up to facing the cold and snow in the morning. The rest of the day was better though. Wanted to clarify something also; I... Read more
Christmas Party at Church Last Night
Saturday, December 14, 2013      16 comments

I made it to the Christmas party at church last night. I rode with my mom, and my sister went too. There were about 24 people all together. The potluck dinner was nice; there was also roast beef. There was just the right balance of side dishes a... Read more
Long day yesterday and a rough night
Thursday, December 12, 2013      17 comments

I had my monthly oncologist appointment Tuesday; nothing new to report there, it was pretty much routine. I also had my Zometa infusion and chemo. It was so cold in the room I was in, as it usually is. I was given a heated blanket but it did not... Read more
Reached a mini goal today; and a kitty pic!
Monday, December 09, 2013      21 comments

As I wrote about in recent blog, I had to cut back on my workouts during the weeks I have chemo. I last had chemo two weeks ago, and I missed my workout Tuesday and Wednesday of that week. I had last week off though, and after I did my workout o... Read more

Except for having to deal with some sinus headaches the first part of the week, this has been a pretty good week off from chemo. My headaches were triggered by the weather; it was changing a lot between Sunday and Wednesday. The headache I had T... Read more
Chemo recovery getting a little bit harder
Sunday, December 01, 2013      19 comments

Last week, the chemo side effects weren't as bad as they were the previous week, but in the last 6 weeks or so, I've noticed that it's taking me longer to bounce back after each treatment. Unlike a lot of medications, where the side effects can ... Read more

Today was a busy day for me, busier than I've had in a long while. I had my chemo appointment at 10:30am. Things went pretty smoothly with that. My best friend Rhonda picked me up at the clinic, then took me home (I live 5 minutes from the ... Read more
Chemo today; no news yet on the CTC test
Tuesday, November 19, 2013      10 comments

I had chemo today, but I did not find anything out about that special blood test, the circulating tumor test, that I had done last week. I asked the nurse about it, and she said I will have to have it done again in 4-6 weeks, because it's not so... Read more
