It smelled very smoky outside when I stepped out to pick up my newspaper, like someone burning leaves, only there aren't really enough leaves to burn anything yet. Then I turned on the local news and learned that it was coming from fires in Minn... Read more

Busy week ahead of me; I am going to have to make sure I get enough sleep, and don't overdo it. Tomorrow it's back to chemo; it's my "long day" at the clinic because I also see my oncologist and get my 2 hour Aredia infusion. My dad's burial is ... Read more

Really feeling the fatigue this afternoon. I think some of it is from the chemo, and some of it just the grief. It's only been 2 weeks since I lost my dad. I did some laundry this morning, before I got really tired; just washed a few blanke... Read more

Last night I had a dream about my dad, I don't remember anything about it except that I saw him sitting in a chair, wearing what he usually does and he wasn't sick. I remember feeling comforted by that, but I am sad that I don't remember anythin... Read more

I slept til almost 9am this morning; late for me, but I've still been very tired today. I did some reading online about the physical effects of grief, and found that fatigue, physical pain, and stomach upset are normal; add that to how I already... Read more

Still having a tough time with the hip pain; I must have done more damage to it than I thought with all the walking around in the hospital. I see my oncologist on Tuesday, I'll let him know about it. It's the same hip I have the bone mets in tha... Read more
Slowly getting back into real life
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      13 comments

Feeling tired today, I suspect my blood count is down from the chemo. I feel I got enough sleep, but I still don't have a lot of energy. I know it's not just from the grief because I was feeling that way before everything happened with my dad. I... Read more
