Wednesday, lunch out and trying out the new meds
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      4 comments

Last night, the worst of the pain was in my knee. I tried the Robaxin around 7pm. It made me a little sleepy, though I couldn't tell then really how much of it was from the pill, since I was so tired anyway from not enough sleep the night before... Read more

It took me a long time to get to sleep last night; just too many things on my mind, just felt "wound up". It was after 3am before I finally fell asleep. When I don't get enough sleep, that makes my pain issues and fatigue worse, so today I ... Read more
A Beautiful Monday
Monday, May 09, 2011      11 comments

Another beautiful day, and even warmer than yesterday. When I last checked, it was up to 68°F. My only complaint about the weather is the wind, not good for my allergies! I did my usual Monday morning grocery shopping, then I stopped for g... Read more

Fatigue
Saturday, May 07, 2011      4 comments

If you have been regularly reading my blogs, you know I've been dealing with fatigue, a side effect of the chemo. Some days are better than others. I never know ahead of time if I will have a good day or a bad day with it. Each day, I have to ga... Read more

It was 5 months ago that I was diagnosed with gastroparesis (GP for short). GP is also called delayed gastric emptying, a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents, because the vagus nerve, which controls the movement of... Read more

I got tired early again last night; was watching Clean House at 10pm, and had trouble staying awake for the last 15 minutes. Went right to bed at 11pm. Since I am getting so tired earlier in the evening, (not a bad thing, for me, it means I... Read more
Rough night last night, but today is going much better!

Last night was a bad night; not the worst night I've ever had, but enough to make me feel miserable and depressed. Despite taking my pain meds, my hip continued to hurt a lot. Around 5pm, my chemo side effects started, feeling crampy and had sto... Read more

I got so sleepy watching tv last night; I went to bed at 11pm. I was awake this morning around 5am. Tried to go back to sleep, I think I might have dozed off a couple of times but not for long. I had the alarm set for 8am but got up a little bef... Read more
Monday blues, some bird pics, and a giggle

It's still windy today, but not as bad as yesterday. With the temps only in the low 50's though it does make it feel chilly. I left the house a little after 9am to get my groceries. My hip was hurting walking around the store, even using th... Read more
A windy Sunday, and it's Timmy's birthday!
Sunday, May 01, 2011      8 comments

I didn't have as much energy today as I did yesterday, even though I slept pretty well. I think a large part of my tiredness today is from the pain pills; I had to take one as soon as I got up today because of the hip pain. This afternoon, my sh... Read more

Lately I have been falling asleep around midnight; that is a good thing. I was having a lot of trouble falling asleep and often was awake still at 1 or 2am. Today I got up around 7:30am. I hope I can keep it up because I feel better if I keep m... Read more

Tired out but it's been a good day

I got so sleepy watching TV last night; I was watching a very interesting show on PBS about the history of San Francisco Bay, but I had a very hard time staying awake, so I gave up and went to bed at 10:45pm. That's not a bad thing though, it's ... Read more
Not a good start to my day
Wednesday, April 27, 2011      7 comments

I had plans to sleep in this morning, but I woke up at 7am with a migraine. Had to take my Imitrex. I went back to bed for about an hour, the headache went away, but I wasn't able to get back to sleep. Oh well. I'm still glad that I did not have... Read more
