Nothing much exciting going on today.

Did a Sit and Be Fit workout in the morning and part of a Tai Chi DVD in the afternoon.

I had some overripe bananas so baked a loaf of banana bread, giving half of it to my mom. It's windy and the house feels chilly today so it was a good day to use the oven.

My fatigue level is a little better today, but I'm still kind of laying low. Mostly just computer, tv, and reading today, though this morning I did a Sit and Be Fit workout and a short stability ball workout.

Have a great weekend all!

Snowy day

Friday, February 24, 2012

Tired again today; I know it's mostly because my hemogloblin is low. Not a lot of energy today. Even doing a Sit and Be Fit workout felt like hard work today.

We had a snowstorm that started late last night and went into this morning, about 4" of snow here. The sun is starting to peek out and now and the snow is stopping, and it's also starting to turn to slush on the roads, but it's getting windy.

    Hey Shari, We have had thunderstorms, tornado watch and hail this afternoon. It was 70 degrees, and now the wind is blowing and the temp is dropping fast. My Daffodil's are blooming way early and look so pretty! I am sure you get tired of not having much energy to do what you would enjoy. Hope tomorrow is a better day for you. :)

    Luckily, it's almost March. So a lot of the snow we get now *tends to* (hopefully) melt relatively quickly. Spring will be here before we know it.
That storm was supposed to hit MN and follow with more on Sun, but this one dipped south, the one this weekend is trending north, and hopefully any others will follow. I'm liking this winter MUCH better than last year!

    That's a good bit of snow...especially down here where we live. Stay warm as it melts...and get all the rest your body's craving right now as the hemoglobin count begins its rise again :( Feel better from this soon...

Bad migraine Tuesday night

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I didn't get online yesterday. The migraine I had Tuesday morning came back that night; it was a long miserable night without enough sleep. I still felt worn out from it all day yesterday. I didn't even change out of my pajamas all day. It felt like the headache could come back so I thought it would be best to stay off the computer.

I am feeling much better today though. I got caught up on the laundry and did a Sit and Be Fit workout.

    ouch! I really feel for you.. I have migraines too, and the day after is a bit like a "hangover" without the alcohol.. I always have to "lose 2 days" with a migraine. Hope you are feeling better now and no more symptoms are hanging around! emoticon

Monday and Tuesday

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

I didn't blog yesterday because I was too tired; woke up at 5am yesterday morning and could not get back to sleep. Only 5 hours of sleep, which can really drag me down when I am already battling fatigue from chemo. I did something that I rarely do, took a 2 hour nap late in the afternoon. Didn't really do much of anything yesterday, and since I there was no mail I had no reason to go out, so I stayed in my pajamas all day.

I got a little bit more sleep last night but still woke up too early. Had a sinus/migraine headache start after I got up. I took my Imitrex which broke the headache but it left me feeling kind of weak and shaky. Good thing I always have a ride to take me to chemo.

My WBC was up high enough today that I was able to have chemo, but my hemogloblin is going down again, not low enough at this point for a transfusion but low enough to cause fatigue.

I felt better for a short time after getting home. I did the PBS Sit and Be Fit workout and then got into my pajamas.
It's just going to be tv and reading for me the rest of the day. It feels like that sinus headache is starting to come back.

    UGH! I can relate to the sinus headache thing! I usually awake with one rather than develop it after rising, though. Hope you'll be feeling much better really soon, my friend! Stay positive, hon! emoticon emoticon

    Hey Shari, I missed hearing from you yesterday, but totally understand when you are too tired to blog. I was praying for you my friend. Hope you can sleep well tonight, and maybe tomorrow will be a better day for you. My Fibromyalgia flared up today, and I ended up taking a nap too.

Take good care.
