Hitting a wall with fatigue again

Saturday, April 18, 2015      22 comments

First, a little bit of good news; it's been 5 weeks now since I've last had a blood transfusion; that is an improvement over the last few months, averaging about 3 weeks in between transfusions. So even thought the hemoglobin is still not stayin... Read more

A Rainy and Windy Monday

Monday, April 13, 2015      21 comments

I had my CBC done this morning, as per my standing order for Mondays. Last Thursday it was 9.8; today it was 9.7. That is a very slight drop, but I am still a bit disappointed that it didn't go up instead. At least I've made it 4 weeks now witho... Read more

Pushing through fatigue, but enjoying beautiful weather

Sunday, April 12, 2015      19 comments

Despite the fatigue issues, I managed to accomplish the two most important goals I had for this weekend. Yesterday was my laundry day, and I got an early start on that in the morning and had it done by 1pm. I'm very thankful to have a washing ma... Read more

Today's CBC

Thursday, April 09, 2015      25 comments

I went in this morning for my Thursday standing order CBC. Hemoglobin went down a little bit; it was 9.8 today. But this time, I am not letting that discourage me; last Thursday, it was also 9.8, but it went up to 10.1 when I had it checked on M... Read more

A good oncologist appointment today; cautiously optimistic

Wednesday, April 08, 2015      25 comments

I had an appointment with my oncologist this morning, and as I expected, he was pleased about my hemoglobin counts finally showing signs of stabilizing, so it sounds like the Halotestin is FINALLY working. He wants to continue the injections eve... Read more

Blood counts stabilizing, I hope?

Tuesday, April 07, 2015      22 comments

A little bit of good news regarding my hemoglobin levels; I thought for sure I'd end up having to get a transfusion this week, but my hemoglobin was 10.1 yesterday, that is up from 9.8 when it was last checked last Thursday. Not a big increase,... Read more

Feeling very blessed; help with yard work today

Saturday, April 04, 2015      29 comments

Shortly after 9am this morning, my dear friend Penny, along with her daughter and son-in-law, got here to rake my yard and get it tidied up for spring. I used to love doing yard work, but it's not something I can do anymore because of my health ... Read more

My week so far

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      25 comments

Today is one of those days that I don't know where to begin, at least when it comes to today's blog, so if I sound like I am rambling, that is why. I got through the weekend ok, though I was very tired; didn't sleep well Friday or Saturday ... Read more

Used book sale today

Friday, March 27, 2015      32 comments

This morning, Penny picked me up and we went to the annual AAUW used book sale. The sale didn't officially start til 9am, but when we got there at 8:45am, the doors were open so we went in and a got a little bit of a head start on the crowd. I... Read more

Wrist pain update and CBC again today

Thursday, March 26, 2015      16 comments

Still have not heard from the lymphedema specialist's office yet for an appointment, but as of yesterday, I haven't had any pain in that wrist, and the swelling has gone down a little bit. If they haven't called me by the time I go to the cancer... Read more

Wrist pain and possible lymphodema

Monday, March 23, 2015      22 comments

Since around midday Friday, I have been having a lot of pain in my right wrist. I was hoping maybe it was just pain from overusing it (though I can't think of anything I had done over the past week that was more than my usual activity level, or ... Read more

Thursday, March 19, 2015      20 comments

It's been a busy couple of days; yesterday Penny picked me up in the morning yesterday so that I could stop at the bank to make a deposit, and drop off some books that I am donating to the AAUW for their annual used book sale, which is next wee... Read more

Another ER visit and hospital stay

Monday, March 16, 2015      26 comments

I was really hoping to avoid another ER visit and hospital stay, but the hemoglobin took a nosedive again last week. ( I apologize in advance for this being a rather long blog today.) I started really feeling it last Thursday; besides the f... Read more

Disappointing hemoglobin count on Monday

Wednesday, March 11, 2015      25 comments

Monday's hemoglobin count was disappointing; on 2/23 it was 10.9, and on 3/9 it was 10.6. I was really hoping that this week's would be in the "10" range, but it was at 9. That's just enough to make me feel fatigued, but not low enough to qualif... Read more
