It's a little bit warmer today, but still very windy. At least the sun is out though, and we had rain overnight which melted the new snow we got yesterday afternoon.

Going in a bit later to get the first of my twice weekly CBCs checked. I usually do that in the morning, but a friend is giving me a ride today, and this morning she has 2 appointments herself which are out of town.

I actually had a good night of sleep last night, which is good, because I am not sure if I will get a chance for a nap today.

Shari, I'm sorry to hear about your cold weather yesterday. I think the cold is even harder to take after we get some good weather. It was really cold here over the weekend with hard frosts both nights. I had to take in all the plants I had put outside and cover up my asparagus. The couple stalks that didn't get covered got hit by the frost. I think the roots of the asparagus are fine, but the stalks didn't make it. Our last frost date here is May 15th, but we don't have any more subfreezing weather predicted between now and then according to Accuweather. I usually only have plants in pots until the last frost date so I can protect them.

Today, I don't have much planned. Just an aerobics class this morning. It will be interesting to see how my new fitbit records what I do there. I was surprised how well it seemed to record my steps at the line dancing and ballroom dancing classes I went to on Friday. So far, it seems to be working perfectly.

It's Monday again! emoticon I'm working at the main bank this morning which makes me cranky. At least the weather forecast is bright! Should help with the mood somewhat.

Have a great day!

Kay, I still have the swelling, but so far, the pain has not returned. I'm wondering now if the pain was something unrelated to the lymphedema, maybe overuse of that wrist. I don't remember overdoing anything with it, but that doesn't mean I didn't.

Not liking the weather today; it's very windy, and for last 1-2 hours, it's been snowing, and the snow is sticking; it sounds like there is some sleet mixed in with it too.

Happy Sunday Morning!

Becky, that would be scary. I rarely eat beets so I wasn't aware of that. I do like to juice beets, but I add a lot of other stuff to the mix to cut down on the beet taste.

This morning, I discovered 6 duck eggs in a flower pot that we keep out all winter. I knew a pair of ducks liked to hang around our house. I'm hoping the eggs make it. it would be so much fun to watch. Last year, the ducks laid some eggs in one of our flowerbeds, but something found them and broke them. I've read that happens frequently. These ducks are pretty tame, so I don't think I scared them off.

Good Morning!

Kay-my leg is better. I'm thinking it's my lower back that's causing the pain. I need to get back to my PT exercises.

I had a bit of a scare this morning. I got up like usual to use the bathroom. I just about fell over when I noticed my urine looked like it had blood in it. Naturally, the first thing I do is go to the computer and google it and look for all of the things it could be and of course anything that has to do with cancer stands way out. By then I'm starting to get pretty scared. Then it dawned on me. I ate beets last night for dinner. Googled that and sure enough, that can happen. I typically don't like them, but my SIL roasts them with carrots and they looked good so I thought I would give it a try. BTW, they are good! This is a friendly reminder though that I need to get in for a pap. I don 't have to worry about ovarian cancer since they were removed, I still need to worry about uterine cancer. So that is on my list of things to do this week.

We had a bit of rain and alot of wind this morning. Thankfully not what they predicted. It helped get rid of some more snow. We even have a chance of thunderstorms on Wed. That will be cool if we get those. I love the first t-storms of the season. It makes it feel like summer is near.

Have a great day!

Happy Saturday Morning All!

Nana, whoohoo on getting released from your oncologist! It must be a strange feeling....sort of like the mixed emotions most of us feel when initial treatment ends. Congratulations on that wonderful milestone.

Shari, I'm glad your wrist swelling is going down. I hope it goes away completely. I also hope you have a good weekend.

Babs, welcome. I'm sorry to hear about the call-back on your mammogram. Waiting for results is the hardest thing to do. We are here for you if you need us.

Becky, how is your leg?

Stormy, welcome!

I'm part of a breast cancer support group of women who started chemo in Sept. 2013. There are about 40 of us in the group. We have become good friends through our secret Facebook group. This week, we lost our first member to breast cancer. She went very quickly (5 months) with a pleural effusion and brain mets. We were all heartbroken. Most of us are doing okay, but we have had two local recurrences in the past month and someone else going to stage IV. Since we are a pretty small group and most of us are only 18-20 months out from our initial diagnosis, it's hard to see so much cancer. Even so, I'm VERY grateful to be a part of that group. It helps me to see that the things I deal with are par for the course when it comes to survivorship. I'm really aware of how fortunate I have been so far.

On a completely different topic, I finally broke down and got a fitbit flex HR Wednesday. So far, I'm really liking it. I'm impressed with how well it integrates with SparkPeople too. Yesterday, was the first day I wore it all day. I went to a line dancing class and a ballroom dancing class for a total of 2 hours of dancing. I wasn't sure how well the fitbit would track dancing, but it seemed to pick it up fine. I ended up with an amazing 12,700 steps yesterday with most of it coming from those two classes. SparkPeople automatically recorded it all, steps, mileage, number of aerobic minutes, and hours of sleep. I decided to use SP to record my food and Fitbit automatically gets that info from Spark. I really like how the two platforms seem to "play nice" with each other. I had a 30% off coupon from Kohl's, so I was able to get it for a pretty good price too.

I hope everyone has a good weekend! We are in a bit of a deep freeze here. I had to cover my tender plants last night.

BABSMOORE-hoping it's nothing. Waiting is the hardest part to get thru.

I'm so glad it's the weekend. A little more winter weather tonight but it shouldn't be in the form of snow thank goodness although it will be sleet and freezing rain. The snow continues to melt and we should see 60's next week. That will make me happy!

I had my oncology appointment today with blood work and everything looks okay. I had the chest X-ray back in February. All is well, and the oncologist released me unless something is ever found again by my internist. He told me that his youngest child is ten years old and he expects to be practicing another 15 years until he gets him through college if I should need him again. It feels strange not to have him as a doctor anymore. He has been so easy to talk with, kind, and compassionate.

Rest and relax this weekend Shari. I hope your wrist doesn't flare again and you have a respite from doctors and nurses for a couple of days.

BABSMOORE10300. - The thought of cancer is scary, but if the lump is anything it is better to know what it is and how it can be treated. That's what mammograms are for, to check and see if we are okay. It's really hard to wait, but that's what we do. We support one another during the waiting time and also whatever, if anything, comes next. Ask this team questions, and someone will answer.

Thank you Moon; still haven't heard from the lymphedema specialist, but my wrist is no longer hurting and the swelling has gone down a little bit. I will ask about what is going on with my referral the next time I am at the cancer center for my injection, unless the pain comes back, then I will call them before that.

BABSMOORE10300, I am keeping you in my prayers. I know it's hard not to freak out; I remember how I felt when I found a lump. If it's any comfort, I have read that 80% of breast lumps turn out to be benign, so I am praying the odds are in your favor. emoticon

I had a mammogram yesterday and my doctor's office called today saying they found a lump. I have to have a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound next Friday, so I'm on pins and needles for the next week. Just freaking out a bit. emoticon

Feeling glad that it's Friday otherwise, feeling a little emoticon . I hurt my leg again which means I have to cut back on my workouts. Fine except for the fact that they get me thru the day emotionally. My eating has been anything but good this week also. I think I just need a few days of me time which isn't going to happen any time soon because we are short handed until we hire a new receptionist. Wouldn't be so bad if it was at our branch, but we have to work at the main bank more hrs. and it stresses me out. If I hear someone else ask me why I don't want full time I'm gonna scream. If I wanted a full time job I wouldn't have applied for the part time job I have!

Sorry to vent. I'm tired of the snow and cold too!

I'm done! emoticon

I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

We got about three inches of snow yesterday afternoon and woke up to 18 degrees and a two hour school delay. Thankfully the afternoon sunshine has melted about half of it. A thunderstorm may come tonight or tomorrow according to the TV weather. That should take care of washing the rest of it away. I hope we're done with the white stuff now, but who knows...

Shari I hope you have an appt scheduled to find out about dealing with lymphedema, and relieving the pain in your wrist. It's good that you got to see your internist too and have the standing orders for your care. I hope you had a sunny afternoon like we had here today and that you were able to manage with your swollen hand and arm. You've been in my thoughts and prayers, and I'll keep you there.

Snow and ice expected later today. Maybe a bit of rain mixed in. Not happy!

I have a breakfast get together this morning with people I work with. Good thing I will have time to come home and work out!

I agree, NO MORE SNOW! We've had the colder temps here but thankfully, no new snow.

Busy day today with appointments.
1st appointment was at the cancer center for lab work and an injection; when the nurse doing those heard about my wrist pain, she was concerned because it was a new area of pain for me and came on suddenly (it started on Friday) so she had me stay and talk to the nurse practitioner. I also have swelling in my hand and lower arm with it.

The NP strongly suspected it was lymphedema ( I'm prone to it because I had lymph nodes taken out of my right side when I had my mastectomy in 2003) so she said she would refer me to a lymphedema specialist, she said it's something I need to get taken care of. Just to rule out that the pain was from a fracture or something else, she had me get x-rays of my wrist, but I found out later this afternoon that they were ok. Now I am just waiting for a call from the specialist to set up an appointment. I hope it's soon, because it really hurts!

I had an appointment with my internist in the afternoon, a followup from my last hospital stay because of the anemia. He gave me another standing order so that at least for the next 2 months, he wants me get my blood counts checked twice per week instead of just weekly. If my hemoglobin gets down to 9, he wants to go ahead and order a transfusion so that I don't have to wait to get to feeling as bad as I did the last time I went to the ER, and this way, if I need a transfusion, I can do it as an outpatient and not have to go through the ER. So anyway, now I am going to get my blood counts checked on Mondays and Thursdays.

We woke up to about 6-8 inches of the white stuff this morning. Not happy! The weekend was rather somber. Too many unhappy events went on. It's Monday and I would like to crawl back into bed and take a nap!

Hoping tomorrow will be better.

Sunny with a cool breeze here today. I'm glad we're not expecting any snow, and if you get some I hope it melts really fast Becky.

Our son called this morning and and said he was feeling back to normal, and his voice sounded strong. I am more convinced that he will be able to work tomorrow now that he is talkative and going outside some today.

3 to 5 inches of snow? I sure hope not! Granted it will melt in a day or so but still, it's time for it to go away until next winter!

Moon, I hope your son has a speedy recovery.

Kay, love the haircut!

Becky, I think we could use some rain here too, at least a good soaker to wash away what is left of the snow.

It's on the chilly side here today, 38 and windy, but a mostly sunny day, and it's still "warm" compared to January and February. I remember at this time last year it still felt like we were deep into winter.

Shari...glad to hear about your good number and that you don't have to go anywhere for a while.

Nana, it's amazing how quickly people can recover from a simple appendectomy these days. I hope your son's recovery continues to go smoothly and that it solved his problem.

I got a haircut today. It's my third one since finishing chemo and my first one with a real style. I'm very happy with it!

I'm so looking forward to it finally being Spring! It looks like we may be seeing some wet weather coming up. Hopefully not this weekend though.

There are so many changes going on at work. I'm thinking it may be time to seriously start looking for another job. People are just not happy there and its really not the environment I want to work in. Time will tell.

Shari-I'm glad you are better. I hope this continues.

Have a great 1st day of Spring!

Shari, I hope you have another good day tomorrow.

Our oldest son had an appendectomy yesterday so I was on pins and needles all day waiting to hear that he was in recovery. It was done with a tiny incision and he went home last night. I don't think he will go back to work until Monday though. He slept a lot today with his pain meds. He called this morning and again this afternoon before the kids came home from school to let me know he was doing okay. I am a worrier so I was relieved to hear from him.

We move into Spring officially tomorrow. I daresay we are all ready for it. Some of our bay ice has melted and we only have one pile of snow left on the west side of the house. Now we need some of St. Paddy's green to appear! Happy Spring!

Thank you! Today I am feeling a little worn out again, but it's partly my own fault for staying up too late reading last night.

My hemoglobin was at 11.7 when it was checked today, a good number for me!
Got a few more errands taken care of today, but thankfully, I can just stay home now until Monday.

I'm having one of my rare good days today! Hope I have another one tomorrow as I have a few things I need to get done.

This morning, a friend picked me so I could run a couple of errands and do some grocery shopping.

Warmer temps today, in the low 40's, but with the wind today, it feels more like the 30's.

Happy Wednesday!

I went to my first Zumba class yesterday. It was fun. I really enjoy exercise when it doesn't feel like work...that's the way Zumba is. I'm sure I'll go back again. I also did a short (5 mile) bicycle ride yesterday. I'm trying to build up my bicyle riding stamina so we can do some longer organized rides this summer. I have a ways to go!

Wishing everyone a good day today.

It's gotten colder here. The sun makes it feel a bit warmer but the wind is still cold. It looks the temps are going to be jumping around the rest of the week.

Shari-I hope you continue to feel better and I hope you get caught up on your sleep.

Kay-I wish I had a place to go with flats of seeds.

I don't sleep well at the hospital either unless I am on pain medication that causes me to sleep through anything. Even on vacation I don't sleep well away from home the first night in a strange place. There is hardly anything more strange than a hospital room when you are the one trying to rest and sleep. I'm glad that you slept better last night at home in your own surroundings.

I hope you catch up even more tonight, and I'm glad you're feeling better.

Kay, I was given an Ambien while in the hospital, but it still didn't help much. I'm also used to sleeping in a completely dark room, and the hospital room had a night light, and of course all the monitors and stuff like that have little lights on them too, and the window shade wasn't one that completely darkened the room either.

I slept much better last night though. Feeling a lot better today but still get tired easily. I guess I need more than one night to get caught up on my sleep.

It's turned colder here too. Yesterday we got up to 63; today it's 36 and very windy.

Happy Tuesday Morning!

Shari, I'm really sorry you had to deal with that again. I'm glad the dr. rechecked your hemoglobin after dealing with your dehydration instead of sending you home. That would have been bad. I have spent many, many nights in the hospital (probably around 9 months of nights total in my lifetime). I usually ask the doctor for an order for a sleeping pill if my health is strong enough. I don't take sleeping pills at home, but I've just learned it is really helpful in the hospital. Sleeping pills lower blood pressure, so depending on what is going one....it's not always possible to take them. Hospitals sometimes feel like torture chambers. ugh...

We enjoyed celebrating hubby's birthday yesterday. We did go for our first bike ride of the season. We did about 6 miles in 40 minutes which is very, very slow....but it felt great to be out on a bike again. I plan on doing another ride today. We are in for a string of good weather.

My little lettuce and arugula flats are coming along. This is the arugula flat. I planted it about 3 days ago.

Shari-hospitals are terrible for resting. They used to have quiet time in the afternoon at our hospital. No visitors were allowed at that time. It didnt help because you would have the nurses making all sorts of noise plus at the time I was very sick i the hospital and had a room mate that had visitors that wouldnt leave. They were extremely annoying. I sure hope you feel better soon!

Our warm temps are now gone. Although we'll still see upper 40's to near 50, its going to feel cold after the near 70 degree temps.

Kay, emoticon to your husband!

Sunday, I woke up feeling really crappy again from the anemia. I ended up going to the ER again, as much as I wanted to avoid it. Besides the anemia, I had the rapid heart rate again and was dehydrated. Before they gave me 2 bags of fluid, my hemoglobin was 8.7, which was not low enough to qualify for a blood transfusion, but because of my symptoms, the ER doctor decided to check my blood counts again after the fluids, because sometimes with anemia, if you are dehydrated, fluids can dilute the blood and make the anemia worse, and sure enough that was the case for me. My hemoglobin after the fluids was down to 7.3, so they decided to give me a blood transfusion and also admit me for observation.

I am feeling a little better today, but still very tired; if you've ever spent a night in a hospital, you know they are not the best place for rest! I did not sleep very well last night, but I was very glad to get back home after I was discharged around noon. I have to go for some more lab work Thursday, and I have a followup with my internist next Monday.

Shari, I'm echoing Kay's hopes for good test results today.

Kay, I hope the two of you get out on your bikes and enjoy your spring weather. That sounds like fun and I know the two of you like to bike. After the winter you've experienced since you got back from Florida the warm sunshine as you cycle down the road will feel good! I hope your birthday boy enjoys his chocolate. I would love that gift since the dark is my favorite too.

If dark chocolate could help me fight the anxiety I am having and the depression I'm hoping to avoid I would be eating the rest of the bar that I have in the pantry. I may be able to have one piece after I track my lunch. Now that I am staring at the picture of chocolate and my mouth is watering I am going to go track lunch and see where I'm at with my nutrition today.

Happy Monday morning!

Shari, I hope you get good results today on your blood test.

Today is my hubby's birthday. It's supposed to be a pretty day here so I'm going to suggest we go for our first bike ride this spring. He's not big on birthday presents, but he does love dark chocolate. I've ordered all kinds of dark chocolate from Amazon that supposed to arrive today. It's the one thing I can get for him that I KNOW he will enjoy.

Becky, I love to see crocus blooming! We don't have any at our new home, but I used to have them all over the place in Illinois. I need to remember to plant some this fall.

Today, it is supposed to get up to 68 and tomorrow 70 degrees. Oh happy day!!! We have had so much rain the past couple weeks that everything is really soggy here. Wind woud be a good thing to help dry things out.

We went to a dinner dance last night. I didn't have anything green to wear, so hubby and I went shopping. I ended up buying a dress, shoes, earrings, bracelet and necklace for a grand total of $16.50! It was all used items and looked pretty darn good when I put it all together. It was fun! I also like that I was supporting a local battered woman's shelter.

All of our snow is gone. My crocus are blooming. The only thing I don't like is the wind. It is always windy. This week the temps are suppose to drop into the normal range. That will be a change from the 60's we've been having. Without the snow, at least we won't have to worry about extremely cold temps like last year. It is so nice to be able to leave the house without mittens on. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather to be here permanently.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Shari, I'm glad the ice is going away where you are and it's safer to walk to the mailbox.

Another rainy day here. We plan on going to meet with some friends for an early dinner (4pm) in a nearby town. It will be nice with daylight savings that we won't have to drive back in the dark. It's a group that gets together every other week. We have missed every get together since before Christmas either because we were out of town or sick. I feel like our lives are getting back to "normal" at long last. Normal is sooo nice!

Wishing everyone a good Saturday.

Kay, I never noticed that I looked at the changing seasons differently, but I now think of birthdays, holidays and other special days as "milestones".

Moon, I can relate to that, I feel like my body is wearing out too (especially my bone marrow right now.) I also use a cane, whenever I am walking outside of my house, but it's not much security when walking on ice, so I am grateful also for the snow and ice melting right now.

It's been so nice not to have to bundle for my short walk to get the mail; yesterday the only thing I had to put on was a zip front hoodie, and while we still have snow on the ground here, at least the ice is gone where I have to walk.

I was fairly confident that everything would be fine after my initial diagnosis, but then I had reactions to the drugs and stopped the meds still hoping that I would be fine. When I had the recurrence and the mastectomy and reconstruction I was jolted into reality that we just never know. Then arthritis got hold of my knees and my foot making it difficult to get around, and after this awful winter of being unable to get outside with ice and a cane... I am so glad that winter is over, and I'm grateful for every good day, physically, emotionally and environmentally! My body is wearing out, but I am working hard to do what I can. Weight loss has helped my knees and adaptations to our house has helped. Warm sunny spring days certainly improve my outlook. With spring comes new hope!

I didn't notice it after my cancer diagnosis, but I did after I eded up in intensive care after a surgery that went wrong. The world looked so different after I got out of the hospital. I will never forget that. Changes in my life, family, etc. has also made me aware of things more now also. No matter what, we never know when our lives will be over so enjoy every day!

We are having wonderful weather here. At 5pm (right now), it's 66 degrees! I love it. I cleaned out one of the flower beds today and planted a couple small cold frames of mixed lettuce seeds. I also bought several packets of herb seeds (basil, dill, cilantro, lemon grass, flat and curly parsley). Some years, I just buy the plants, but this year, I decided to go ahead and buy seeds. It takes a little longer, but I get a lot more herbs that way.

I've noticed that I seem to be much more aware each time the seasons change since being diagnosed with cancer. I was wondering if other noticed the same thing. I kind of think to myself, "Well, I made it to another season! Whoo Hoo!" Anybody else do that?

Kay, that is great news!

I didn't get such good news on my hemoglobin count though; it was 9 on Monday, down from 10.6 last week; I was really hoping it was going to stay in the "10s" this week.

At least our weather has been nice; I was out for the mail earlier this afternoon and it was 45 at that time, and the sun actually felt warm!

No fair! We are further south than you, but no sign of flowers here yet. Instead we have dense fog advisories for another half hour all over west central Ohio. Soggy ground and heavy air...

I'm emoticon so sleepy and slow from my big day yesterday, but I've been moving around and went to my windows to search for flowers... Early to bed tonight because I have a long drive tomorrow. I hope the fog stays away tomorrow...

Stay safe and if you live in MN warm and sunny with flowers!

Spring is definitely here in MN! The weather has been perfect. It looks like it's going to stay at least thru the beginning of next week. Hopefully we're done with snow. I won't hold my breath though. My daffodils and crocus's are coming up. I should have flowers by tomorrow.

Have a great Wednesday!

So very glad to hear your good news Kay! WooHoo!!! Each day is a gift!

My glasses came in two days early and they are helping me see distances much better, and also the fine print of whatever, like calories and ingredients on the side of a can. I also got a new mask to try with my CPAP machine and am hoping it works well without leaking and waking me up or making a pressure spot on my nose. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one. I can try it for a month and if it doesn't work for me I can take it back without being charged for it. That is a bonus! I drove home in fog and rain wearing my new glasses, and felt much more confident to be on the road. So I have yet to wear them in the bright sunshine or the dark, and I take them off when I'm on the computer. Life is often one adjustment after another.

Still keeping my fingers crossed for good test results for you too Shari. emoticon emoticon

Shari, I hope your hemoglobin number looks good this time.

It's very soggy here today too, but at least it's not ice! I had my checkup with my Medical Oncologist today in Nashville. It was all good and I am very, very grateful. With triple negative breast cancer, the most likelyhood of mets is in the first three years. I'm a little over half way through...19 months. I feel so grateful of each day, week, month that passes without problems.

We're suppose to see 60's today! The weather has been great. The snow is almost all gone. The yard is soggy for the dogs. Now I can't wait till it dries up some. I've been so busy the last few days. I took a vacation day from work yesterday. Will hate to go back this afternoon.

We are having beautiful weather here too; yesterday and today we have reached the lower 40's, the snow is melting and it's sunny.

Had another Halotestin injection today, and my weekly CBC done. Still waiting on the report to see what my hemoglobin level is. The hospital that the cancer center uses is slow to get the lab reports posted online, usually it's a 4-5 hour wait.

Sunny today and the snow IS MELTING. Milo emoticon is tracking his wet paw prints all over the kitchen. Our cable, internet and phones were out for five hours yesterday. I called and we tried a couple of things to see if we could solve it. We scheduled an appt for Monday morning, and inexplicably about 10PM I noticed the lights were back on the modem. We canceled the appt for Monday this morning when an automated call came in asking if we still needed it. I hope it stays on. I need FEWER things to contend with, not more.

A part of my CPAP face mask broke last night and while we had no TV to watch I rummaged around and found two older ones that I hadn't thrown away. I was able to cobble them together to fix one. I hope I can get an appt tomorrow (45 min away) to get another one ordered and talk with my respiratory therapist.

I managed to change two of our clocks to reflect the new daylight savings time, and tried with two others that I cannot get to cooperate! I'm laughing at being outsmarted by clocks that I used to be able to work. I'm wishing my grands were here to figure them out!

We actually saw 40's yesterday. It didn't feel like it though because of the wind out of the north. Today should be a little better. As long as the snow is melting I'm good.

Cleaning today and then throwing something on the grill tonight.

Have a great day!

My husband opened the blinds on the windows facing east this morning and the sunshine came flooding in. My eyes tolerated it a little better than a few days ago. There is still a glare from the snow even though the windows are tinted, but I'm not shielding my eyes like I have been. I'm slowly adjusting to it... I don't want to wear those sunglasses in the house!

I'm glad we're not having more snow like you are Shari and I heard someone say that the snow won't last as long when the temperatures hit 32F. I think we are up to 39F! Now if the wind would stop... Here's a good thought... Only 14 days until spring! I know that somewhere under the snow little shoots are beginning to make their way up through the soil...

emoticon Hope you feel better soon Rae!

It's snowing here at the moment, but we are at 32F! That is "warm" compared to what we have had the past couple of months; I don't even remember the last time this winter that we hit the 30 degree mark.

Becky, I hope you have fun with your boys while they are on break.

Moon, sounds like we both had mix ups with our oncologists this week.

Shari, I hope you are having a good day.

The ice storm we had this week was nothing compared to the one we had a couple weeks ago. Hubby put in a new garbage disposal this morning. The old one had cracked and was leaking. I'm so glad he can do stuff like that. I'm still feeling tired from all of the events of the past month. I think even though I finished chemo a year ago, it still takes me longer to bounce back from things. I'm looking forward to an bedtime tonight!

Shari - To their credit the oncology office receptionist called me on Wednesday to rearrange my Thurs morning appt. I must have been in the shower when she left the first message and at the eye doctor's when she left the second. I failed to check for any messages when I got home. Oh well, I made a couple of stops on my way home so the trip wasn't a total loss. I just really wanted to put it behind me since I had to reschedule it before.

It was sunny this morning here as well and hopefully above freezing tomorrow and better temps for the coming week. I hope you and your boys enjoy Spring break Beckyanne. I hope the warm up melts the snow gradually and that maybe we won't have anymore. That would be a welcome relief and a real sign or spring.

SNOW and ICE... emoticon EVAPORATE!!!

My emotions have been all over the place the past couple of days. I hope better weather and a visit with my daughter and counselor next week will help me get straightened around.

Have a good weekend everyone!

It's Friday and the warmup begins! It's been a long week.

It's Spring break at the University so I will have 2 boys home for a week. They really do need the break.

Have a great day!

Moon, I'm sorry you had to find out about the cancelled appointment after having to drive so far, it sounds like they should have called you a lot earlier than they did. I hope the new glasses will help and that you get some good news when you go back for your 6 month appointment.

We have one more day of very cold weather to get through tomorrow, then Saturday, it's supposed to start getting up into the 30's during the day.

I got home from a canceled appointment with my oncologist today after driving 45 minutes each way. I was rescheduled for two weeks from now. They did leave voicemails on our home answering machine which I listened to when I got home - a little late to save me the trip. Fortunately my trip was cold and sunny.

I was at the eye surgeon's yesterday and then out ordering new glasses which he said I will probably need to wear most of the time. I also have to go back in 6 months. He said something about a wrinkle in each eye and a haze on my left. I was a little rattled. He reassured me that the new glasses would help and did some other tests and the refraction. I hope my new glasses come in before my appts 2 hours away next week.

I'm glad you got home safely from your trip yesterday. I don't like driving in rain and the ice would be even worse. I'm hoping you keep your power and that the ice doesn't damage what was just repaired for you and your neighbors. Take care and stay warm and dry.

Hi All,
My mom got out of the hospital yesterday and was able to go directly back into assisted living. That's a big relief! I had to go to Nashville yesterday for a checkup with my MO. It turns out that they had moved the appointment and I somehow didn't get the notice. It's a two hour drive for us each way. They weren't able to get me in with the MO, but they did get me in with the breast surgeon because I had a spot that I was concerned about. It was right near my axilla, so they couldn't do a mammo on it and just did an ultrasound. It looked okay. I was was glad to get it checked out.

It is supposed to snow here all day today...Right now, it's cold enough for snow (26 degrees), but so far, we are getting sleet instead. That means more ICE! As long as we keep our power, I don't care. We don't have to go anywhere today. It was pouring down rain all day yesterday while we were driving and in Nashville. It was a mess, but I'm glad we were doing it yesterday instead of today. Ice is horrible to drive on going up and down the plateau where we live.

Shari, I'm so glad to hear your hopeful news. I hope your medicine is working and that it will keep your hemoglobin up. I also hope that your fatigue improves as well.

I saw Kay's blog earlier today and also sent prayers her way. She has had an awful time since they got home from Florida. This month has been trying for all of us in some way or another.

It's been nice here today too, but they say sleet and freezing rain early followed by heavy rain tomorrow. Now they are concerned about possible flooding.

Moon, I hope you feel better soon. It's frustrating having to cancel appointments because of weather, I've had to that twice this winter, and then the ones I did make it too, always seemed to be the coldest, snowiest, or windiest days.

Kay, I read your blog and you are in my prayers.

It's actually a pretty nice day here today, sunny, and closer to our normal temps, but they say we have 4 inches of snow on the way for tomorrow.

Some hopeful news for me today; when I had my CBC done today, my hemoglobin was at 10.6; that is still below normal, but the good news part is that is only down slightly from last weeks, which was 10.9, so I am hoping the Halotestin is finally working and keeping it from dropping so much from week to week. Maybe my fatigue will improve too, without it flucuating so much from week to week.

Hi All,
Shari, I agree that Feb. was a long month. I just wrote a blog basically saying that. I really hope March is a better month for all of us...most particularly you.

I am sorry to hear about those of you that are having to deal with another storm and snow dump. Ugh.

I can't remember the last time I posted here. We got our power back after seven days and moved back into our house Saturday. That night, my mom had a heart attack! When it rains it pours. She is okay, but I'm not sure she can go back into assisted living in her current condition. That is going to open up a big can of worms if she can't. I talked to the social worker at the hospital about it today. I hope she can help us figure this all out. Issues with my mom are very draining for me.

Its a quiet day today before the storm. Not really sure how much snow we'll see. I'm just looking forward to the weekend when we turn the clocks ahead and the temps warm into the 30's. Yesterday was a pretty good day. I accomplished quite a bit despite having to go to a concert that I didnt know about until the last minute.

The March lion dumped snow on us and we're home waiting for the snow plow to come plow out our drive. It's about 100 ft from our garage to the road. With our bad knees we can't deal with the snow blower anymore when the snow is deep.

I'm still congested with a cough and tired from aggravating my cough with the cold air. I hope it gets a little warmer on Wednesday when I have my next eye appt. If my cough hasn't improved by Tuesday I'll have to cancel my oncology appt. emoticon

At least I got my chest X-ray done ahead of time. I don't like the way Mother Nature toys with my appt calendar! It's full of scribbles as I cross things out and rearrange dates. emoticon

It's a quiet start to March! It looks like we may have a winter storm headed our way for Monday night into Tuesday. Until then it will be dry and not quite as cold.

It's also been a long month, for one containing only 28 days. Glad that March is just around the corner, that gives me some hope that maybe spring is coming, lol.

More cold temps ahead before we start a warm up. We had light snow that made it quite slick today. I've been dealing with sinus headaches this week so I sure would love to just stay home and do nothing for 1 day. I had to work all day today and tomorrow I have to go into work early for a meeting plus I have a class I need to go to tomorrow night. This part time job is really getting to be more than what I bargained for. i'm still looking for that job I can do until I can retire as I don't feel this job is it.

Becky, that is great to hear about your mom's cancer shrinking. Good news!

Shari, I'm glad you are done with your doctor's appointments this week. It's been so cold there. It must have been exhausting to go to all those appointments. I hope the Halo kicks in and gets your hemoglobin up some.

We are still without power. Last night, we threw in the towel and checked into a timeshare a couple blocks from our house. It's a summer resort type place that is empty in the winter and rents out by the night. It's actually very nice with a full kitchen. We really needed to put our food in a working refridgerator. All the things in our freezer started defrosting so we can't refreeze them. We are eating meat like crazy right now. I'm just grateful to be warm. It could be another week before we have power because they skipped our house and our neighbors house when they restored power to the neighborhood. (We are on the end of the line.) About a third of our county (6,000 homes) still doesn't have power five days after the storm.

To make matters worse, a chipmunk got into our house last night! Jim was able to trap it and get it out this afternoon, but not before it had done some damage. We think we know how it got in, so we aren't worried about more getting in.

The good news is that Jim and I are not coughing as much the past few days. Our flu is definately on the way out!

Had an oncologist appointment this morning; he thinks we need to give the Halotestin more time to work to improve my hemoglobin counts, so he is keeping me on it for now. He believes that it will start working, and I hope so, as he said there really isn't anything else he can do to help me with the anemia and the fatigue.

Becky, I'm glad that your mom got some good news and that the pills are working!

We made it up to 23 today, but with the wind, it really doesn't feel much warmer than yesterday was. Had to go out again this morning, this time, an internist appointment.

Kay-That flu that's going around seems to linger on for a long time. Then to be without heat. I hope things get better really soon.

I woke up to a surprising 23 degrees! We get 1 day of warmer weather before the cold comes back. It looks like a bit of a warm up later this week though. Sure hope March comes in milder.

My mom got good news yesterday. The cancer has shrunk some so the pills are doing their job. We were so relieved. She sees her Dr. on Friday so she will find out more then.

I don't know how warm (LOL) it got here today. Very little snow melted so I shoved a little of it out of the way since I had planned to go out this afternoon. The sun gave the illusion of warmth so out to the store I went as well, Shari. I got a few groceries in in case the Wednesday/ Thursday weather turns out to be those below zero wind chills again or more snow. Wed afternoon is my dental appt and if my cough stays in check I think I'll be able to go weather permitting.

Kay I think you got a double whammy with the flu and a major ice storm! I hope your power is back on... Enough already!!!

Moon, I know what you mean, I am so tired of winter too, especially with so many days of extreme cold. When it's this cold, I'm always cold in my house too.

Kay, I hope you get your power back on soon.

It was - 25 when I got up this morning, and so far, we've only made it to 8F. I guess the good thing is that the sun is shining and it's not snowing today. I was out this morning because I had to get my standing order lab work done, and I figured as long as I was out, I might as well get my groceries too.

Becky, I'm sorry to hear about the mixup with your mom.....how frustrating. I hope he cancer hasn't progressed.

I haven't been around due to both the flu and the ice storm. I'm slowly getting over the flu...it took longer to clear than I originally thought it would. We lost our power two days ago with the ice storm (along with about 90% of the people living in my county). We still don't have our power back. I think it may be a few more days before they get to us. Today, hubby and I decided to go to the local library to stay warm, recharge our phones (and my Kindle) and use the internet. There are a lot of other people here doing the exact same thing. We would go stay in a hotel, but they all are packed. Fortunately, we have a gas hot water heater so we are able to take hot showers at home. Our down sleeping bags that we use for camping are coming in quite handy at night. The storm itself was pretty scary. Our next door neighbors on both sides have tons of very tall trees that could crash on our house. A huge tree fell down next door and took out the power line and power pole. Fortunately, it fell away from their house.....otherwise, it would have caused massive damage to their house.

Hubby and I are both just getting over the flu so being in a cold house is pretty unpleasant. This morning I started thinking that we should have stayed in Florida for another month! At least this way, we know our house is okay.

Wishing everyone the best....
Kay

I'm glad to see your post today Shari. I wonder if Kay hasn't been online because Tennessee has had more snow and ice that has caused problems with her internet? I hope it isn't illness...

I'm sorry to hear about you mom Becky. I hope she asks you to go with her to the appointment next week for moral support. You would be a good person to have beside her with your experience behind you. I'll send up some prayers too.

We have about three inches of snow on the ground and 31 degrees this afternoon at 3PM, but we're supposed to go down to 8 tonight with a wind chill advisory as well. It's might reach 20 tomorrow. (sigh..)

I took a nap yesterday which I think helped me with my cold. My husband felt enough better to repair our mailbox so tomorrow afternoon I might go the post office to pick up whatever mail they are holding for us since last week when the high winds blew down the box. I'm tired of this winter too. What is it now? Like 25 days or so until spring? I'm supposed to go to the dentist for cleaning on Wednesday. Who can plan around this cold weather and coughing? It's an afternoon appt so maybe I will be able to keep it...

We are already turning colder again today; the temps are supposed to start falling to around 6 F by early evening, and we will be under another wind chill advisory starting at 9pm through noon tomorrow.

We've got that cold weather coming back tonight. I'm just tired of it already.

We went shopping today. I was hoping looking at Spring clothes would help my mood. Well, it didn't. I expected the stores to have much more out than they did. They still have quite a bit of clearance stuff.

My mom had gone for her mammogram a couple of weeks ago and got a letter that said everything was fine which surprised me because she had BC just like me, but they didn't do surgery because of a health issue they were concerned with and instead put her on the Arimidex. Well, I went to visit her today and she told me they called her on Friday and said the letter was a mistake and that she needs to come back on Monday. I was not too happy with the Radiologist. they have been advertising about this new 3D Mammogram machine and how much better it is and then they make this kind of mistake? I told her that I will go with her if she wants me to. At least to talk to her Dr. or if she needs that needle biopsy again. This is the last thing she needs right now. She is still having a hard time with my brother's death. I'm just hoping that nothing has changed. If it's still small, then she should be ok. Just keeping my fingers crossed.

Shari-I hope your energy level is up now and your feeling better. Frozen pipes haven't been a problem around here this year. Last year it was terrible. So many people had frozen pipes and worse.

It's been a couple of days since I checked in.

I ended up having to go to the ER Thursday morning, my symptoms got worse again. They gave me a transfusion and I got back home around 6:45pm that night.

It was - 25 when I got up yesterday morning, and I had frozen pipes. A lot of people in the area did, so the guy I had called didn't get here til around 3pm yesterday, but he found the problem and fixed it. Part of the problem was I had a section of heat tape that was no longer working, so he replaced that too. It's warmer today though! We made it up to 27.

Friday night brought us a couple more inches of the white stuff, and it's slightly warmer. The best part is NO BELOW ZERO WIND CHILL emoticon because there is no cold wind blowing this morning. I have caught my husband's cold, but maybe if I keep exercising and eating well it won't be too bad. My cough is sporadic. I'm moving a little slower, but I'm moving!

Good morning!

Kay-I hope you're feeling better.

It's suppose to warm up a little today although it won't feel very warm. It's also snowing. I'm going to be glad to see February go. It hasn't been a very pleasant month.

I hope everyone has a nice Friday.

I was in and out of Spark People quickly yesterday trying to stay off the computer to rest my eyes, which I think are slowing improving. My husband was sick last weekend so I hauled wood and aggravated my knees which are also feeling better after lots of lineament and some rest, mostly yesterday. He's sleeping early and back to work, but still coughing. I went to the grocery today to prepare for the next few days of bitter cold and possibly whatever Mother Nature decides to dump on us. Freezing rain, snow?

I hope Kay is resting and taking care of her cough. I'm sorry you had such a rough day yesterday. I hope you are able to get more rest and have less pain.

I am going to sleep soon. I need to track my lunch and dinner and then it's lights our for me. My husband is already asleep. His music is playing and I'll turn it down lower and lower and then off.

Sorry I missed checking in yesterday; yesterday was kind of a rough day. Only slept 3 hours Monday night, so I didn't feel very well yesterday, and spent about half the day in bed.

My hemoglobin was down to 8.7 when it was checked Monday; low enough to cause fatigue, but almost, but not quite, low enough to meet the criteria for a blood transfusion. It most likely will be next week, so I am trying to hang in there til it's checked again next Monday
