Pain flareup and oncologist appointment

Monday, July 06, 2015      13 comments

Had a flareup of my bone pain over the weekend; the worst of it started late yesterday afternoon and went on into the evening, in my left hip (my "bad" hip) and radiated down into my knee. Even my prescription pain med didn't really touch it. I ... Read more

A couple of good days!

Friday, July 03, 2015      19 comments

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

Update on how I am doing

Thursday, June 25, 2015      23 comments

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

Oncologist appointment today; trying a couple new drugs

Friday, June 12, 2015      28 comments

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

Friday, June 05, 2015      32 comments

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

Wednesday, June 03, 2015      24 comments

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

Monday, June 01, 2015      24 comments

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!

Sunday, May 31, 2015      26 comments

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

Friday, May 29, 2015      27 comments

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

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      28 comments

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

Tuesday, May 26, 2015      26 comments

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
