Got the Monday blues, but a good dinner to look forward to
Monday, June 27, 2011      10 comments

I hate to complain, but it seems like lately I'm not having as many good days as I use to; I think it's the cumulative effects of being on chemo for so long. I've been on it since April 2010. My gastroparesis (GP) has been flaring up more often ... Read more

These are some of the crocheted top hanging towels I have been making. I got buttons sewed on 30 of them yesterday, and a lot more that still need buttons. I am making them ... Read more
Getting use to the TENS and trying out new workout DVDs
Saturday, June 25, 2011      6 comments

Yesterday was another gray, gloomy day. No rain but it was still damp, maybe that is why I was hurting all over yesterday and had a headache most of the day. I tried out my Tai Chi for back care DVD, but only lasted 25 minutes. I was just ... Read more

I've been wanting to share something I am going through, but I debated it about it because I am not sure if the person that this is about will see my blog here or not. But I decided to go ahead, it should be ok if I don't give out any names or i... Read more
Got my TENS unit today
Thursday, June 23, 2011      7 comments

I had my appointment at 11:30am to get my TENS unit at the pain clinic. After an evaluation, I was given the unit and show how to use it. I really like it so far, though I will have to give it some time to feel the full effects of it for the pai... Read more
Rough day with a migraine yesterday
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      9 comments

Please forgive the longer blog today; by the time I had a chance to blog yesterday, I was too tired, and my back was too sore to sit at the computer. I had chemo yesterday, but that is not the reason why the day was so rough. It was because... Read more
Out for lunch today
Monday, June 20, 2011      5 comments

Today was a much better day, at least with the fatigue. Sciatica pain and shoulder pain not so much, but we've had some rain today and a chance of thunderstorms, the kind of weather that aggravates the pain. I did the standing portion of my... Read more
Sunday; grocery shopping and tried my new yoga DVD
Sunday, June 19, 2011      8 comments

Still very tired today, but at least the first half of my day was better. Today I have felt achy all over. We haven't had any rain today, but there is a chance of it, and we have some hot and humid weather coming back. I went to bed around ... Read more
Some tough days with the fatigue
Saturday, June 18, 2011      9 comments

I've been dealing with fatigue ever since starting chemo over a year ago, but the last few days it's been worse than usual. Not sure why that is. I wonder if part of it is the double whammy of having had my Aredia this week too in addition to th... Read more
Kind of a blah Thursday
Thursday, June 16, 2011      7 comments

I had trouble falling asleep again last night, but I was able to get to sleep earlier than I did the night before, and was able to sleep in a little today. But with my fatigue that is still not enough sleep. I've been lazy today, besides feeling... Read more

Last night the chemo side effects started around 8pm; felt crampy, and had some bad heartburn. I take Protonix twice per day, but that doesn't prevent the chemo heartburn, but at least it's just that first night after a treatment. Because of tha... Read more
Long day at the clinic today
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      10 comments

Today it was back to chemo, and my long day today at the clinic. I had my monthly appointment with my oncologist, and before they did my chemo, I had my 2 hour Aredia infusion. My doctor was almost on time today, but the 2 nurses had a lot of pa... Read more
Up early again today
Monday, June 13, 2011      5 comments

I was so tired last night, I was asleep by 11pm, early for me. I got up early today; 6:30am. Wish I could have slept longer, but I was feeling hungry, which made it hard to relax in order to get back to sleep. But I was able to leave earlier tha... Read more
Started out feeling better, then ran out of steam

Didn't get quite enough sleep last night, but I still felt better today, at least the first part of my day. The weather was nice today, and my hip and knee felt a little better too. I didn't have to take a pain pill until 12:30pm today. But... Read more

Woke up to the sound of rain this morning; I thought it was going to rainy day all day, but it stopped around mid morning, and very late this afternoon, the sun came out. Feeling pretty good today, except the hip/knee pain. The pain pills h... Read more
