Getting hot and windy
Thursday, May 24, 2012      8 comments

I knew it was going to be a hot one today when my AC kicked in before I even got out of bed this morning. It's windy too, wouldn't be surprised to see some thundershowers pop up later tonight. Got outside before it got too hot to fill the b... Read more
Love my new mattress pad!
Wednesday, May 23, 2012      6 comments

I slept on my new mattress pad last night, (Beyond Down, got it from Amazon). It was so soft and billowy! I had a good night of sleep except for waking up with night sweats a few times, ( a side effect of the chemo, they are usually bad that fir... Read more
Made it through 2 chemos in a row

My blood counts were not that great today, but still high enough for chemo. WBC was 2.7, and hemogloblin was 8.8. My oncologist orders blood transfusions when hemogloblin drops to 8.2 or below, so chances are that I will need one next week. Sinc... Read more

It was hard to get going and get out of the house this morning, kind of had a sense of inertia; I think that comes from the fatigue that goes along with my chemo. Really had to push myself today but I am glad I did. My first stop was at Wal... Read more

Beautiful, summer-like day today. Went to church with my mom this this morning. During the service today, they recognized the high school graduates in the congregation. Was thinking back to my own graduation, can't believe it's been 30 years ago... Read more

Finally got some new music downloaded to my MP3 player, something I've been meaning to do for awhile but kept putting off. I don't do it that often, and each time I do it, I almost have to start all over figuring out how to do it. I've just been... Read more

Not much going on today. Took me a little while to get going today, woke up feeling stiff and sore and not feeling good from chemo side effects. Took some time for my pain and nausea meds to work, but feeling a little better this afternoon... Read more
Feeling better about things today

Having some pain issues today, and feeling some chemo side effects, but mentally having a much better day than yesterday. I had also posted about my frustrations with the lawn mower on Facebook, and I had all 3 of my best friends either calling ... Read more
Frustrating start to the day
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      12 comments

So frustrated today! I have friends that will mow my lawn for me, but since my yard is small and my pain was at a pretty tolerable level this morning, I thought I'd try doing it myself. I thought I'd be ok once I got it started, that is hardest ... Read more
Tuesday, chemo day again
Tuesday, May 15, 2012      6 comments

My counts were up enough that I could have chemo today; however, if they go down to far again next week, they might put me on a lower dose to keep me on the schedule I'm suppose to be on. Having a hard time sleeping most nights with the pai... Read more
Another 2 weeks of pain
Monday, May 14, 2012      8 comments

I didn't do my usual Monday morning grocery shopping. I didn't get enough sleep last night, (partly my own fault, stayed up way longer than I should have reading a good book.) I felt too light headed to drive even before I took my pain pill. Too... Read more

Woke up feeling stiff and sore all over again, but I didn't take my pain pill til after I got home from church. Sometimes they make me nauseous, and I did not want to take the chance of getting sick to my stomach in the middle of the church serv... Read more

Some time outside today
Friday, May 11, 2012      9 comments

It is beautiful outside today, at 9am it was already up to 60°F, and now it's 71°F. About an hour after taking my pain pill, I went out and tried to do some more weeding, but once again didn't get very far before I pooped out. But I will keep pl... Read more
Bone pain today
Thursday, May 10, 2012      8 comments

I did not do a lot with the first part of my day. I woke with bone pain this morning, mostly in my legs. It's a side effect that sometimes happens with the Aredia, which I just had on Tuesday. Usually it doesn't last more than a day or two. ... Read more
