Chillin' (literally!) today
Thursday, May 26, 2011      2 comments

Chilly again today; it was only 46°F when I got up, and only got up into the mid 50's today. Furnace is on, but I have still felt cold most of the day; I think part of that is the lowered blood counts from the chemo. I can't turn up the heat muc... Read more
A rainy Wednesday

Had a bad tummy night last night with the chemo side effects. Took me a long time to get to sleep too, ended up having to take one of my sleeping pills around 12:30am. Feeling a little better today; still having some cramps and stomach pain... Read more

Before my chemo today, I had to stop at the billing office at the hospital. I recently received a bill for lab work that the insurance didn't, but should have covered. The hospital is right next door to the clinic where I get my chemo, and I dec... Read more
Monday; a little rain and some sunshine

Had a little trouble falling asleep last night, then when I finally did, a thunderstorm woke me up at 1am. It didn't keep me awake long though, I turned on the tv and checked the Weather Channel and felt better when I learned there wasn't anythi... Read more
Sunday, the weekend is winding down

I went to Walmart this morning to shop for a couple of birthday gifts and to stock up on a few things I always buy there because of the prices. Even though I didn't have to buy a lot, I still had to walk around a lot of the store to get it, so I... Read more

Today was a much better day than yesterday. Just spent a quiet day at home. Did some cleaning but I made sure to pace myself so I would not tire myself out too much. Did a stability ball workout. It's just starting to rain now, looks... Read more
My "get up and go" I had yesterday left me today
Friday, May 20, 2011      10 comments

I had one of my "good" days yesterday, and the evening went well too. I was tired, but I still felt well enough to work on my crocheted hanging towels (the ones I am making for Relay for Life) while watching tv. I got 3 towels done except for se... Read more
Up and at 'em early today

I made it through my MRI with no problems! That Xanax worked great, and I also asked to have my eyes covered, since that had worked that last time too. I actually dozed off for a few minutes in the machine, which was good, it made the time go by... Read more
MRI this afternoon (the one that was canceled last Friday)
Wednesday, May 18, 2011      8 comments

Doing my Sparking early today, since my MRI (that was canceled on Friday due to a broken machine) is this afternoon. As I've mentioned before, I get claustophobic in those machines and I have to take a Xanax an hour before I go. Since it makes m... Read more

I had my chemo today, but I didn't realize til I got there that it was also my Aredia day, which takes 2 hours. I have my chemo every Tuesday for 3 weeks in a row, then a week off, and my Aredia was always on that 3rd week. I had last week off, ... Read more

I called the hospital this morning and got my MRI rescheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Did my usual Monday morning grocery shopping. Had to wait in line longer today. I have no idea why the store was so busy this morning. It's not close to ... Read more
A lazy Sunday

Not much going on here today. I've been pretty lazy most of the day, other than doing my tai chi DVD. A couple of friends stopped over for a visit, we had a nice time talking for about a couple of hours. Managing ok with the pain,... Read more
No MRI yesterday, have to reschedule

I ended up not getting my MRI after all last night. Got to the hospital and found out the machine was broken. So I have to call Monday and reschedule. Of course, I had already taken the Xanax, so I got into my pajamas after I got home, as planne... Read more

No rain here yesterday. Heard some thunder around 7:30pm from a thunderstorm that went just to the south of us, but the rest of the night was quiet. I felt like I slept well last night, but not having a good day with the fatigue today. My b... Read more
Thursday thoughts

Not a good day with the pain; shoulder is a little better, but the hip and knee really hurt today. Part of it is the weather; it's humid, and there's a chance of rain and thunderstorms later. We had some thunderstorms last night that started aro... Read more
