My mom had her followup appointment with her doctor yesterday. He didn't feel the antibiotic he put her on last week was clearing up the infection in her legs fast enough, so he took her off of that one and put her on 2 new ones. She has to get ... Read more

Very windy today! I'm not a fan of the wind, especially during pollen season. But I was able to get my grocery shopping done and get back home before it got too windy. Despite the wind it's a beautiful day, sunny out. I should have used the... Read more

A better day

Yesterday was not such a good day. Had to deal with nausea from chemo and my pain pills. For some reason, my pain pills made me sleepier than usual, so even after the nausea eventually went away, I was too tired to care about getting anything do... Read more

Sunday, April 15, 2012      8 comments

We had some rain and thundershowers this morning. We needed the rain, and since the water wasn't turned on yet at the cemetery, we couldn't water the tulips after they were planted, so I'm glad they got "watered" today. This kind of weather... Read more

I had plans to really get some things done today, but that didn't happen. My sciatica pain and the shoulder pain started early. I took a pain pill at 10:15am. I tried eating a yogurt with it, to see if that would prevent my nausea so that I woul... Read more
No chemo today

I had my Aredia today but no chemo, white blood count was too low. It's not good to have a low WBC, but since I am having pain in my hip and shoulder today, I was kind of glad not to have to sit there the extra time. The Aredia infusion took 2 h... Read more
