Losing my Dad... slowly

Friday, November 28, 2014      5 comments

We've been by his bedside for the past week - he was "supposed" to not last until we made it here. He's tough, and hanging on to (we think) try to finish business that he can do nothing about. He's spoken to me about it before, and it's not on h... Read more

It's all good - again - for now...

Sunday, November 09, 2014      2 comments

So I had my "final" biopsy, and results this week. The biopsy was behind the neck, and swelled quite a bit. What a nightmare! Wound up with a migraine, vomiting, emergency room, 2 bags of fluid iv because I was dehydrated plus gravol and somethi... Read more

It's all good!

Saturday, September 27, 2014      3 comments

Just a quick note before I rush off to enjoy the glorious week-end. I saw the naturopath yesterday and received results from my blood work. Iron is up, cholesterol is cut by half. Yes HALF! and well in the healthy ranges. BP is in high-no... Read more

99-Day Countdown

Tuesday, September 23, 2014      4 comments

So, it's 99 days until New Year's. Can you believe it?1? Time has been flying by. I feel the need to challenge myself, to give myself some sort of framework as I learn this new way of eating. I thought it would be much easier as I've done ... Read more

Overwhelmed, but Moving Forward

Sunday, September 21, 2014      3 comments

The past few weeks have been a roller coaster of medical tests and visits to the oncologist and doctors. Good news is that what was a strongly suspected bone cancer is actually (well, probably, but thatís another story!) osteo arthritis. My fami... Read more

Fingers crossed and optomistic

Sunday, September 07, 2014      4 comments

So I had what I think is my last test - a full body MRI - yesterday, and will be getting results from the oncologist on Wednesday. It seems very likely that it is, cancer metasticized to the bones, but I am oddly optomistic. For one thing, it w... Read more

In the "wait" period of "hurry up and wait"

Saturday, August 23, 2014      3 comments

After the flurry of appointments - onco Wednesday afternoon, two CT scans Wednesday night, full body MRI Friday, now I wait. Probably about a week until my oncos get my results. Meanwhile, I'm hoping for the best - I don't even know what t... Read more

At least tests are happening quickly

Thursday, August 21, 2014      3 comments

I got a call today to do the last full-body scan tomorrow! You can't get medical tests scheduled any quicker than that - I saw my onco only yesterday afternoon! So if it is a mets, at least it will be addressed quickly. I'm becoming more h... Read more

Difficult Summer... going into Fall

Wednesday, August 20, 2014      4 comments

Well, the title says it all. It's been a very difficult summer with a lot of pain, very little ability to exercise. Just got results of a bone density test and it looks like I have 12% loss in the lower back, and build up in the pelvic area. M... Read more

Hitting my re-set button!

Friday, August 01, 2014      3 comments

I've been struggling with consistency because of health issues. I've found out this week that I have osteosporosis because of the meds I take to replace the thyroid and to avoid a cancer recurrence. So that explains the pain in my lower back. ... Read more

5% Challenge - 12 Things I'm Reaching For...

Monday, June 16, 2014      6 comments

On January 2, I blogged about 12 things I'm reaching for. I was just out of surgery (again) and gearing up to go back to work, and things were looking up. Then I got a terrible cold, and things got put on the back burner. Basically, I want... Read more

Oddly relieving to not sleep

Friday, April 11, 2014      4 comments

Since my sleep doctor told me Wednesday that it's like my normal to not sleep more than 4 hours per night, I feel oddly lighter and more relaxed. No more trying to stay quiet, destress, meditate, etc to try to get back to sleep. I stay wide aw... Read more

Met with my sleep doctor today

Wednesday, April 09, 2014      3 comments

...that is, the doctor from the sleep clinic. I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea last year and tried the CPAP machine. Nice thing is that they let you test it out for a month before you buy it, to make sure you get the right machine and m... Read more

Received my Fitbit Plus today!

Tuesday, March 04, 2014      3 comments

I registered for a health coach through a program at work, and as part of the program I received a Fitbit Plus. I've set it up to sync with SparkPeople -- hopefully that will work. I also get three hours of training with a health coach, as... Read more
