(Not my cat, but this picture expresses how I feel today; tired, but happy and relieved,) Today has been a long, and tiring day. Woke up with a headache and feeling achy al... Read more
Very tired today, but almost done
Monday, February 08, 2010      6 comments

I was up early again to get my weekly grocery shopping done. I left my house around 8:30am, which meant that I still had plenty of time after getting home that I didn't have to be in a rush to eat some lunch early enough that it wouldn't be too ... Read more

I think my nap yesterday did me some good. While watching tv last night, I finished another chemo cap and got started on another one. I was also able to do some reading before I went to bed. Still having issues with some pain from the acid... Read more

Made it through another week, 4 days of radiation. Been rough at times, but I'm almost done now. Just 2 more to go. Went to bed a little after 10pm with a headache, not a migraine, but close to it. It was one of those where I just needed to... Read more
Recipe: Lemon-Glazed Gingersnaps
Saturday, February 06, 2010      9 comments

I found this recipe in Prevention magazine. The recipe says it yields 5 dozen, but I got about half that. I think I made my cookies a little too big. I would also use a little less lemon juice in the glaze next time, mine was a little thin. The ... Read more

Last night, it was lights out again by 9pm. I'm still waking up anywhere between 12am to 2am and finding it hard to get back to sleep. But I think I'm still getting at least 6 hours of good sleep during the night anyway. My sleep should be bette... Read more

The fatigue from the radiation is really getting to me. Even though I put a tape in the VCR for "Lost", I wanted to try to watch it when it was actually on anyway. Around 6:30pm, I laid down on the bed for a nap; woke up a little before 8pm... Read more

It was an early bedtime for my last night, went to bed at 9pm, but I got some pretty good sleep. I think it helped with the hip pain a little. Today was the day for my monthly lab work for my oncologist, so I had that done this morning. Rad... Read more
7 more radiation treatments to go
Monday, February 01, 2010      12 comments

Last night was one of those nights that was hard to sleep, but since I had taken one of my pain pills, I couldn't take my Ambien. Some nights it's hard to decide which is worse, the pain, or not being able to sleep. Usually the pain pills make m... Read more

Another month will be over with in less than 12 hours. It's been a challenging month, trying to stick to my goals while going through my radiation treatments, and still having some issues with the hip pain. The worst radiation side effects have ... Read more

I managed to stay up past 11pm last night! Went to bed at 11:20pm, then I couldn't get to sleep, so I ended up taking my Ambien, and reading for about 20 minutes til it made me sleepy. Woke up around 7:30am, but didn't get out of bed right away;... Read more
A day off from radiation today

Last night I went to bed early again, at 9:30am. Woke up a few times during the night; with the extreme cold we have been having, it's caused my bone pain to flare up. I tried to sleep on my left side, the side that is best for my acid reflux, b... Read more

It's bitterly cold here today, the wind chill got down to -10. Last night I was in a bed a little after 9:30pm, and got up at 7:30am. It was nice to have the extra time before my radiation this afternoon, got caught up on the laundry. But... Read more
Another early bedtime for me last night
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      8 comments

Last night was another early bedtime for me; besides the fatigue that comes with the radiation, and my anti-nausea meds, I had to take a pain pill in the evening. I was trying to watch Teen Mom on MTV, but gave up at 10:30pm when I kept falling ... Read more
