Thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to create it so that all the people close to me can check in to see what happening in my treatment, and how I'm doing. This doesn't mean that I don't want to hear from you. Please feel free to call, email, text any time. But I apologize if I don't always get back to you. This new cancer journey of mine is a full time job, and I'm doing the best that I can. Please know that your thoughts and prayers mean so much to me...keep them coming! Thank you for all your help and support takes a community, and you have all given us that.

Round 4 was Friday, and Wendy came with me this time. Everything went well, and we all had a great weekend with her and Kayla. But Monday arrived with aches and fatique. I felt like crap, and had to drag my butt to the hospital for a CT, which I get every 6 weeks. I wasn't great company for Dana, who sat kindly in a crappy roll away chair while I lay on an equally crappy bed, drinking my contrast die for an hour and a half. I guess it was expecting too much to think this round would be as easy as the last. But I am starting to feel a bit better today. My biggest problem is weakness, and I even find it hard just to sit upright. I don't know if it's the cancer in my bones that makes it difficult, or just weakness. But I hate feeling like this! Anyway, I have a busy week, so this is my last day of lying around!

  1. Contrast dye... that does not sound appealing! How frustrating to be feeling so poorly - where is that magic wand I'd like to know.Only a few more rounds though right? 4 more? So half way through! Does anything help? Hot baths, massage, rest? I know when my back begins to protest and remind me that snowmobiling with little snow was not wise... I head for the therapist! Wishing you a rebound in energy and a better end to the week. xo
