A couple of good days!
Yesterday morning, my friend Angel came over and she took me to Meijer for a few groceries. I had not planned to shop this week, and I was stocked up enough on things to be able to get by without shopping, and with my busy week, I just didn't wa... Read more
Missed an appointment today
I missed my appointment I had at the pain clinic this morning, due to another screwup at the Dial a Ride office. I called them yesterday morning, a whole 24 hours before my 11am appointment today, to schedule a pick up time. The dispatcher I spo... Read more
Got my Ibrance today
UPS delivered my first month of the Ibrance this morning.
Was kind of bummed to see that the pills are so big.
I have placed a quarter beside... Read more

Update on how I am doing
It's hard to believe that it's just been a week now since I got out of the hospital. Still fighting the fatigue, but I think that cellulitis hit me pretty hard. Even though I've slept pretty good the past 3-4 nights, I still end up having to tak... Read more
Hospital stay for cellulitis
I ended up with another hospital stay this week, this time, it was a due to a cellulitis infection.
It started out with a mild rash on my right upper arm that I first noticed on Saturday or Sunday; at first I thought maybe it was a side eff... Read more
Oncologist appointment today; trying a couple new drugs
Well, today was the day of the oncologist appointment I've been somewhat anxious about. But overall, I did a better job handling the anxiety this time around than I have for past scans. Last night, I even had a pretty good night of sleep! Those ... Read more
Mini goals and long term goals
A small victory for me today; I did my chair workout for 5 days in a row this week, working out for 22-25 minutes each time. That is not a lot of exercise compared to what a lot of people do, but it's been months since I've been able to do 5 day... Read more
Internist appointment today, and splurge at The Arctic Penguin
Penny took me to my internist appointment today. This appointment didn't have anything to do with my recent scans (it was my oncologist that ordered those, and I see him on the 12th); it was a followup appointment having to do with my anemia iss... Read more
Sunday and Monday
My Sunday ended up being kind of a "lost" day, due to some extreme fatigue. Didn't get much of anything done, and it seemed like it took me forever just to get my grocery shopping list done and my coupons ready. Usually, if I take a nap, I try t... Read more
House sold yesterday!
We had the auctions yesterday morning for my parent's house, and for the contents that my sister and I chose not to keep. I didn't have to be there, and I chose not to be, because of my health issues it would have been too tiring for me, and wit... Read more
Internmit service for Mom, more help from Penny
Most of you who read my blogs know that my mom passed away in November of last year. We were not able to have the burial of her ashes at the time of the funeral, because of the weather. We had that done yesterday morning; it was just a short, si... Read more
A lot of help from a very dear friend
I'm so thankful for my dear friend Penny, she has truly been a blessing to me. She has been here in town for most of the past month to get my mom and dad's house ready to sell (she is the executor of the estate; she was listed in the trust to ta... Read more
CT Scan Results
My CT scan results finally showed up online late in the afternoon yesterday. Not really sure what to make of them; they aren't good, but I'm not sure how "bad" the "bad" really is, if that makes any sense? Until I talk to my oncologist, I don't ... Read more
No results yet
I was hoping that my CT scan results would be posted before the day was over yesterday, but that did not happen. Sometimes, the scan results are posted the same day if the scan is done in the morning, but more often than not, it takes about 24 h... Read more
