Another test done and over with today. Today it was an x-ray series of the small bowel. I don't have any results yet, but the test itself went fine. I just thought I'd blog about it today if anyone was wondering how it's done and what it fe... Read more

About 10 years ago, I bought a very small lilac bush. It was a little less than 2 feet tall when I planted it, and it hasn't grown much taller, in height or width, in all that time. It never had any flowers on it. Still, it was living, and it ha... Read more

Back on the Afinitor, and got my hanging baskets today
Tuesday, May 20, 2014      20 comments

I saw my oncologist today, and he decided it was time to put me back on the Afinitor. He does not believe at this time that it was the cause of the problems I'm having, because if it was, the diarrhea should have stopped by now. We can't be tota... Read more

The weather is beautiful here today, we are up to 75 right now. After the chilly, gloomy and rainy weather of the past 2 weeks or so, it feels like we went from fall right to summer. That's Michigan for you though! I had a period of time th... Read more
Oncologist appointment today, and another specialist to see
Tuesday, May 06, 2014      17 comments

I saw my oncologist again today. My lab work shows that I am anemic, but also that my iron is too high. He is going to send me to a hematologist to get that treated. He said the high iron levels could also be what is causing the increase in my p... Read more
