Hot flashes making me feel very crabby today
Thursday, October 07, 2010      8 comments

I would like to say thank you to all who commented on my blog yesterday; it touched me that so many people took it to heart. I am feeling crabby today from lack of sleep. (Not looking for any advice here, just need to vent). The chemo has b... Read more

Wednesday, October 06, 2010      23 comments

Today I am sharing a letter to the editor a friend of mine sent to a few newspapers, and she shared it with us in the Stage IV support group at BreastCancer.org. As someone that has been living with Stage IV for over 3 years now, I feel it's i... Read more

Ended up with a migraine last night, had to take my Imitrex. It got rid of the headache but really made me light headed and sleepy. Once the dinner dishes were washed, I just vegged out in front of the tv til bedtime. I had my first appoint... Read more

Had a rough night last night; a flare up of IBS, and it was also hard to get to sleep. It took me awhile to get moving this morning; hip and shoulder were really hurting. I really wanted to take a pain pill, but I couldn't, as I had to get to ... Read more
Where I walk: Picture Blog
Sunday, October 03, 2010      16 comments

Beautiful Sunday today. There is a trail about a block from my house called the White Pine Trail; there use to be railroad tracks there, but years ago they were paved over, and now the trail is used for recreational activities such as walking, h... Read more
Just a quick blog for my Spark point today
Saturday, October 02, 2010      10 comments

Nothing much to blog about today; just enjoyed a quiet day at home not doing much of anything. Since I had gone out for a walk for 7 days in a row prior to today, I decided to make this an "off" day. Slept in a little bit this morning; i... Read more
Feeling the change in weather and some kitty in the sink pics
Friday, October 01, 2010      10 comments

I can feel a change in the weather coming again; this morning I was achy all over before I even got up. It took awhile for my pain pill to start working today, but I did manage a 10 minute walk today. Because it was a little chilly, and I was hu... Read more
Kind of a laid back day; met my sister's new kitten today
Thursday, September 30, 2010      5 comments

Sort of had plans to go into town this morning and do a little shopping, but today was kind of a low energy day for me. I didn't get up til 9am, and I didn't really feel like getting myself ready, so I decided not to go. Not a big disappointment... Read more
Another beautiful fall day
Wednesday, September 29, 2010      8 comments

It's another beautiful day here! Felt pretty good today, despite waking up more than usual from the hot flashes during the night; the increase is probably because I had chemo yesterday. Still have the usual aches and pains but they are milder an... Read more
A perfect fall day
Tuesday, September 28, 2010      6 comments

I had to fast after 9pm last night for my blood work today, so that meant plain water instead of flavored water. I haven't been able to drink my water plain since April, because of the chemo. Somehow, the chemo made plain water taste metallic. S... Read more

I'm another year older today, and I am feeling it! Still, I am thankful to have another birthday, and so far I've had 8 birthdays since my original cancer diagnoses. I had another bad night last night with the pain from the acid reflux. I c... Read more

We did not get any frost last night like I thought we would, but it looks like another chance tonight. I went outside around noon and uncovered my plants. The plants I am covering up are in pots, and I put them all on my porch, some on the ... Read more
It sure feels like fall today, and an update on my mom
Saturday, September 25, 2010      14 comments

My mom didn't sleep well last night; had a stiff neck from laying in the ER bed, but her leg is looking a lot better. She said it's not as red and swollen today. Hopefully that means the antibiotics are doing their job. I haven't been doing... Read more
A windy, rainy day, and an evening in the ER with my mom
Friday, September 24, 2010      6 comments

It's been a very long day. Started out feeling my aches and pains more than usual because of the weather. It was very windy, we had wind advisories out for pretty much the whole day. Rain too. At 1am last night, I turned on the Weather Channel w... Read more
3rd week with the Velban, doing ok
Thursday, September 23, 2010      9 comments

Doing ok with the chemo side effects; the worst is the fatigue, but this Velban is much easier to handle than the CMF. Tuesday was the 3rd Velban and it's one I get every week; it was just the first week that I was on it that it was so rough, bu... Read more
