Product Review: Thermacare Lower Back and Hip Wrap
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      9 comments

I suffer from sciatica pain in my hip. When the pain is really bad, a heating pad really feels good on it, but they aren't very portable. And pain pills aren't always an option either, because the kind I take make me sleepy, so I can't take them... Read more

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      10 comments

I had my chemo this morning; it seemed to go pretty fast today, I was back home by 11am. Felt ok today, just a little sleepy from the nausea meds. It was beautiful out today; I went out for a walk this afternoon. It was 81°F at that time, b... Read more

The last few nights, it has gotten down into the 30's and 40's. Today was a little chilly again with a high in the low 60's. Now we have a warm front coming, and it's going to get hot, humid and into the 80's tomorrow. I was feeling ok thi... Read more

Yesterday I spent a good part of my day at the Relay for Life. I admit I almost chickened out wearing my pink wig, but I didn't because I had already told so many people that I would, they were counting on it, lol! But I was glad I did, I had a ... Read more

This is just going to be a short blog tonight, I am tired, but it was for a good cause. I spent quite a bit of time at the Relay for Life. I wore my pink wig for the Survivor Celebration. I had a lot of people tell me it was cool, and got ma... Read more

A day both happy and sad
Thursday, September 16, 2010      11 comments

It's been another one of those days with both highs and lows. I felt tired out just getting ready to go out today, and I hadn't even taken my pain pill, it's just the fatigue from the chemo. But I decided today to just accept it; it doesn't... Read more
Chemo side effects not so bad this week
Wednesday, September 15, 2010      16 comments

Last week at this time, I was having a very bad time with the side effects of the new chemo. This time, I took the Miralax when I got home from my treatment yesterday, and so far, except for a little heartburn, no really bad digestive side effec... Read more

I had chemo again this morning, #2 of the weekly Velban. I was in the office about 45 minutes; even though the Velban is a quick injection through the IV, I still have to get my blood drawn first to check the counts; then wait for the lab to get... Read more

Today I was busy getting things done in case I am "out of commission" for a few days after my chemo tomorrow. I did my grocery shopping this morning. I bought some ground turkey on sale and when I got home, I repackaged it into smaller sizes and... Read more
The weekend
Sunday, September 12, 2010      10 comments

Yesterday was chilly and it rained most the day, so, as I expected, my sciatica flared up, but not as bad as I expected it to be. I think that 10 minute walk I did on Friday helped, so I decided to try some exercise for the pain instead of tak... Read more

Eye doctor today

It wasn't hard waking up this morning, but it was hard to get out of bed. I was too warm last night, so I had the central air on when I went to bed, but it got very cold outside last night, in the upper 30's, so the house was chilly too. I was v... Read more

Still struggling with the fatigue. I didn't get up til almost 10am today, but I figured I needed the sleep. I still didn't feel good the first part of the day, still had some problems with IBS from the chemo side effects. But I have learned I ... Read more
Day 1 after the change in chemo
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      32 comments

I had some bad heartburn last night; not sure if it was from the chemo or not. With the CMF chemo, I was able to eat pretty much normally after a treatment, but with this new one, I might have to eat bland for a day or two afterwards. I'll be su... Read more
