I am so sorry about your drug reaction, but I am glad you are doing well on the insulin! My insomnia continues, and the rain is still keeping us from our wildflower hikes. I have gained at least 10 pounds!!!!! Yikes!! I can still wear my clothes, but they are getting a little snug. We made reservations Aug. 20 - Sept. 3 in Banff, Alberta, Canada. That got me excited!!! It does seem like maybe this journey with cancer will end afterall!! hahaha!!! God is so good and merciful!! I have been blessed in so many ways!!! Enjoy your visit and trip!!!!! Thanks for checking on me!!

Hi Kay, Haven't checked in for a while now, so wanted to see how you are doing, we are getting ready to go to our sons in ClearWater Florida in a couple of weeks, really looking forward to that. I have had a few setbacks, I took some new medicine for my diabetes and reacted really bad to it, vomiting and a bad headache for about 2 days, my doctor said she thought it was a stomach virus and ask me to take the next injection, It was only a once a week injection so the next week I took it again and the same thing happened again, it was really awful. Now I'm on just plain insulin and seems to be doing fine. So now I'm ready for some fun stuff.
Hope you are doing ok.

So good to hear from you. The weather and insomnia caused by the pill for the ER+ cancer that I have to take for five years has really kept me from getting much exercise lately. I am trying to talk myself into a little hike this afternoon!! I have not been keeping track of my calories each day....I am praying I can get a handle on this eating and make myself exercise. It does not seem to help me sleep better, unfortunately. I go for chemo tomorrow. Then only four more!!!! I truly cannot complain about this journey. I have experienced so many blessings from the Lord!!!! He is good!!! I hope you can enjoy some beautiful spring weather!!

I am so sorry to hear about your sister, but it is the best comfort knowing you will see her again. I am doing great!! I have not lost more weight, but I am still at 100 pounds lost when I weighed yesterday. Whew! The biggest thing for me is to learn to maintain!! I would love to lose at least 20 more pounds, but I can live with me this way. hahaha!! I am getting my energy back. We did a 6.6 mile hike last week and another one almost 5 miles. I am not doing any steep hikes yet, but I am so thankful to be able to do more!!! My mom is being anesthetized tomorrow for the urologist to check her kidney for a possible tumor. She is 90, as is my dad. Our goal is that she not suffer. We fear Dad may insist on doing whatever they can do to keep her going as long as possible. Our prayer, of course, is that they do not find a tumor, as indicated on a CT scan. Take care and enjoy the day! Rainy here, but mild.
