Recipe: Crock Pot Applesauce
Sunday, April 27, 2014      16 comments

I found this recipe on a blog called Crockpot 365. I have made it a couple of times already, and I really like it; it's so much better than the store-bought applesauce! It has a sweet yet tart flavor. I don't usually have fresh lemons on ha... Read more
Update on the pain issues
Thursday, April 24, 2014      12 comments

After I posted my blog yesterday, someone asked how I was doing with my pain. I guess I am so use to living with chronic pain, that it doesn't always occur to me to mention it. I also don't want to sound like I am complaining all of the time. ... Read more
Yesterday's Oncologist Appointment
Wednesday, April 23, 2014      17 comments

I had my monthly oncologist appointment yesterday. He thinks I will need a colonoscopy, but since I am seeing my G.I. doctor on May 1st, it will be up to him to order it. So it will be at least another week before I get any closer to finding out... Read more
Easter Sunday
Monday, April 21, 2014      19 comments

I meant to post a blog yesterday, but I was just too tired. As you know if you regularly read my blogs, going to church on Easter Sunday was very important to me (and not just because of the new dress). Well, I wanted to let you know, that ... Read more
"How Do You Do It?"
Thursday, April 17, 2014      24 comments

"How do you do it?"; that is question I have been asked a lot over the years of being treated (and I am still in treatment) for stage IV breast cancer. This month marks 7 years since my cancer returned, this time to my bones. Next month marks th... Read more
More fluids and lab work today
Tuesday, April 15, 2014      17 comments

I thought I was seeing my oncologist today, but my appointment was just for lab work. Because I am still having the diarrhea, they decided to give me fluids again too. From what my nurse told me, it sounds like my oncologist's suspects it's infl... Read more
Very Scary Storm Last Night
Sunday, April 13, 2014      16 comments

Last night we had our first real thunderstorms of the season here in my area. There were no watches or warnings issued, but things got scary when a brief, but powerful storm moved through around 9pm. Before that, we were having some big booms of... Read more
Slowly trying to get back to normal
Friday, April 11, 2014      18 comments

It's discouraging to still not know for sure what is going on and what is causing intestinal bleeding and the diarrhea, and I am getting tired of (pardon the pun) feeling so crappy. I think that getting the IV fluids the other day helped me, and... Read more
Followup appointment with internist, no real answers yet
Thursday, April 10, 2014      19 comments

Unfortunately, the diarrhea really has not gotten any better yet, even though I have been off the Afinitor for a week now. One of the side effects of the potassium pills is also diarrhea, so it may be that it's not getting better because of thos... Read more
Lab tests today, and IV fluids
Tuesday, April 08, 2014      18 comments

When I saw my internist last Thursday, he wanted me to let him know on Monday how I was doing. I sent him a message Monday morning via the practice's website and let him know that things were not any better. Late in the day, someone from the of... Read more

I thought I was starting to get a little better, both Friday and Saturday I had to take a Lomotil early in the morning, but then I went almost 10 hours both days before the diarrhea started again. Still sticking to bland diet and soft foods. I w... Read more
Afinitor side effects getting worse, saw doctor today
Thursday, April 03, 2014      22 comments

Warning; this blog may be a little TMI, but when it comes to what is going on with my cancer treatment, I want to be honest about it. I'm still having a tough time with the diarrhea from the Afinitor, and a few days ago, I started noticing ... Read more
Recipe: Chicken Cooked in Foil
Sunday, March 30, 2014      23 comments

CHICKEN COOKED IN FOIL This is an easy and flavorful way to bake chicken. It's also easy to cut the recipe down to make just one or two servings. If you leave the garlic out, (which I do because of my gastoparesis), it's a good recipe if yo... Read more
Oncologist appointment and first Xgeva injection
Thursday, March 27, 2014      18 comments

I had my monthly oncologist appointment on Tuesday. I told him about the diarrhea issues, and he agreed that it's most likely from the Afinitor. He gave me a prescription for Lomotil. I wasn't able to pick it up til yesterday, but I took it for ... Read more
A bit of a setback last week
Sunday, March 23, 2014      22 comments

Last week wasn't one of my best weeks, nothing major, just disappointing. Wednesday I woke up with a bad sinus headache, and had severe nausea. The nausea was to the point where I honestly thought I was going to start throwing up, so I had ... Read more
