Heartburn and fatigue
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      8 comments

Normally, my bedtime routine includes reading for about half hour to an hour before going to sleep, but with the fatigue from radiation, most nights I can barely manage a half dozen pages, and for the last 4 nights, I haven't done any reading at... Read more

Brrrr! Winter is back. After one of the warmest January days ever in this part of Michigan, (It got up into the 40's yesterday), the rain turned to snow, and the temperatures dropped quite a bit too. It's also breezy today with some gusty winds ... Read more

It's a cold, rainy, and windy day here in Michigan, the snow is starting to melt. A good day to stay home and stay inside, so that is what I am doing. I was able to sleep in this morning, so I did. Feeling so much better now, except for the... Read more
Funeral today

Still dealing with the fatigue from the radiation; it was hard to get up out of bed this morning. Also feeling more of the heartburn, also a radiation side effect. I may have to call my internist Monday morning and get something stronger than my... Read more

This morning, my mom and I both had appointments to get our hair cut. We are both having problems with thinning hair, due to our medical problems. I really like my hair now, and surprisingly, I didn't have to go as short as I thought I would. I ... Read more

This is probably going to be a long blog, so I apologize in advance for that. Yesterday was a long day. After my radiation treatment, my mom and I went to the funeral home to make arrangements for Aunt Elinor. It went very well, and Chris, ... Read more

Still no change in my aunt's condition. After my radiation today, I went shopping for some clothes for her for the funeral, when the time comes. I knew my mom wouldn't feel up to doing it, and anything I can do to help my mom, I am happy to do. ... Read more
Very tired again today, and an update on my aunt
Monday, January 18, 2010      8 comments

I was gone for most of the morning today; finally got around to returning those two tops I bought at Fashion Bug that didn't fit, filled up the car with gas, and then went grocery shopping. Hip was really hurting today too. When I got home,... Read more
Feeling the fatigue today

Starting to feel more of the radiation side effects now. No diarrhea yet, but close to it; going to have to really start watching what I eat again and will probably be back on my bland food diet before long. I have also been feeling the fatigue ... Read more
Went to see my aunt today

My mom and I went to see my Aunt Elinor today. She has been in a nursing home since February 2003, after a major stroke. At the time her doctor (who is an arrogant SOB by the way) told us she'd never be out of a wheelchair. Well, she proved him ... Read more

It's finally warming up above freezing and melting some of the snow. Since I won't need to wear my heavy winter jacket for a few days, I decided to wash it today; it has to air dry so it will take a couple of days to try. In the meantime, I have... Read more

I had my 6 month dental check up and cleaning this morning; everything looks good. It's important that I keep up with those checkups, because with the Zometa I am on, there is a risk of developing jaw necrosis if I have any dental surgery. So ke... Read more

I was very tired last night, went to bed at 9:30pm, which is early for me. I was tired from getting up so early, and also the Compezine I took to prevent the post radiation nausea makes me tired, as did the Fioricet I take after my Zometa treatm... Read more

Last night, I ended up going to bed at 6:30pm; didn't really sleep that much, but gradually, the headache and the nausea got better, and I got up again at 9pm. Had a small snack and watched a couple hours of TV, then went back to bed at 11pm. It... Read more
