Ida, you need to keep your positive attitude.

We came home to another set of twin lambs. We are up to 15 lambs. I need to get out to the barn to help. We need to set up a heat lamp for the babies since our weather as turned cold and rainy.

Take care everyone.

Well today I am trying to stay positive. Between the kidney stones, a bad muscle strain where I am having spasums, I just found out that one of my kidneys is not working. I am having a lot of pain and doing what the DR has ordered. Found out a good friend of our from church was just told she has stage 4 breast cancer. The weather is cold and icky today so I will not be going outside. I have gotten 15 min of walking in so far. I am to the point today where I just want to give up. I also know if I do that I will not come back. I need to get off this pity party I am on this morning.

Hope everyone have a good day today.

Had my test with the allergist last Friday and he confirmed that I am, indeed, allergic to Taxol. It's a relief to at least have the test results now. Before the test, all of my docs were conpletely skeptical that there could be a delayed reaction to it.

I'm getting a second opinion next week to see what other alternatives are out there knowing that the Taxol is out of the picture. (I doubt they would re challenge it after that.)

Hope everyone out there is doing well. :)

Kay, it was good to hear from you. Kitchen remodels are a lot of work. We had ours done a few years ago. It was too big of a project for us. We took everything down to the studs. It is so nice when it is done.

Deana, I hope you get the care you need. Prayers for you.

FLRED, you and your family are in my prayers.

BIKEORAMA, welcome to the team. I also had taxol for chemo and my DR worried about a bad reaction to the drug with my first treatment, but it was more during the treatment itself, so they administered it at slower rate the first time.

Ida, I hope your garden does well.

We have been busy with the lambs. We moved moms and the two sets of older lambs back into the main flock. Then moved the other three moms and babies into the nursery pen.

I have been also dealing with a bout of the stomach flu, but am feeling much better today. I stayed home from work today to rest.

Take care everyone.

Julie

Good Sunday morning everyone!

Deanna, I'm sorry to hear that your cancer has progressed and your Dr. is having trouble controlling the pain. It sounds like your DD has been so helpful lately with your doctor's appointments and finances. It's good you have her to depend on. I hope Monday will bring some pain relief and some guidance on how to manage things going forward. Sending loving thoughts your way.

FLRED, thinking of you as you are dealing with the passing of your family member.

Ida, your weather is really something! Good luck with your gardening. I remember some the problems you had in other springs.

Julie, congratulations on the new lambs. The must be so cute when they are babies.

BIKEORAMA, welcome! I had breast cancer too. Taxol x 12 and AC x4, lumpectomy & ALND, and rads. The taxol can cause allergic reactions. It will be interesting to see what the allergist says. I hope you let us know. In the meantime, I hope you are able to continue your infusions and that things go smoothly.

We have been very busy the past week taking out the old tile countertops in our kitchen (that was a mess to remove). The installers came on Thursday and put in new granite countertops. There's some more work to be done before we can put everything back and really use the kitchen. I figure it will be Tuesday or Wednesday before everything is done. While it's been a mess, I am exhausted but happy to be able to work on a big home repair project. It's the first one that I have actively participated in since having cancer. All the other projects since then, I have just been on the sidelines and not really doing much of the DIY work.

Wishing everyone a good Sunday.

2 of DD neighbors are nurses. Came over to give me a bath. In the very sensitive area they saw an open sore . gave me some suggestions. Was feeling quite relaxed when they were done.

DD is calling her ob/gyn and having me directly admitted on Monday.

Morning everyone.......
Well today is cold and wet. Got my garden in and my garden tent blew away last night due to the 32 mile per hour gusts. We will be figuring how to make it stay in place when we get it back up. This is what happens when you live up in the mountains of Idaho. Now they are saying we may get 2 inches of snow this week.
Hope everyone is doing well

Ida, I hope you are better soon and prayers for you also.

Didn't make it to my workout this morning. We had a rough lambing last night. Two lambs trying to come at once and they didn't fit. The first lamb was born dead but we did mange to save the our two lambs. Mom and lambs are going well. We now have 13 lambs with at least one more to go.

Have a good evening.

Prayers are out there for you also.

Good morning...........
Besides my kidney stones & kidney giving me pain. Went to the DR and he said I have a strained muscle in my left side and gave me some meds for the muscle spasms. He put some shots in the different areas that were hurting real bad. Last night it was so bad I could not even get up off the toilet without help. I am feeling better this morning where I can walk with out hurting with ever step.
I hope everyone is going to have a great weekend. Prayers are out there for the rest of the team that are going through medical and other problems.

HE LIED.

On 3/8 he told me CT scan was fine. Now he says I have Cancer in my spine. DD pushed and finally got an an admission that my pain could be caused by what is commonly known as diaper rash. Gave me a bottle of Desitin.

Asked if any of my meds need to be updated, answer was NO, a couple of them sh/ be yes. Office is closed on Friday.

DD recorded all the conversation. He's pushing for hospice, that way he has me off his back.

DD is pushing for oxygen bariactric theraphy. He says it won't work. Still prayers for pain.

Hi there.

Newbie here. Joined the team a couple of days ago. Currently being treated for breast cancer.

I go to the allergist tomorrow morning for an allergy test to see if a recent introduction to Taxol treatment caused a severe allergic reaction that landed me in the hospital. It's funny -- no one (not the oncologist or the allegist) believes the Taxol caused it. I have no history of food allergies -- just mild pollen-related stuff. Will be interesting to find out the results. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Work went OK today.

We had a set of twins lambs born today. We now have 8 lambs with up to 5 more ewes get to go. We aren't sure if the two young ewes are bred. All we can do is wait. Tomorrow could be a busy since it will be the full moon.

I hope everyone is going well.

DH & I have been working outside most of morning. Even got my garden tent put up this year. I am hoping it helps keep the bugs and deer away from my veggies.

Kidney is still hurting real bad. I see the DR tomorrow. I do not think there is anything he can do. All I can do is wait for the stones to come out.

The sun is out and the temp is up too 75 today. It is really nice to have warm temps.
Have a great week everyone.

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

DD came over on Saturday and Sunday. Set me up for mint.com to take care of the bills. Hope it works out. I have a complicated procedure as far as who pays how much and from which checking account. DH isn't that much computer savvy. Today DGD did a bunch of juicing, tastes so bad that it's got to be good for you.

DR thought we were past the point of 2nd opinion and wants to go for hospice and stop treatment. He can't figure out how to control the pain. He's supposed to be one of the top in his field. DD butted heads with the Chemo Nurse. Gave DD permission to act on my behalf. She wants a DR at Emory University to do a 2nd opinion.

Thoughts and prayers appreciated.

Ida, I hope you are feeling better soon. Keep up the walking.

CheiAnn, we had a beautiful sunny day. Spent a few hours out in the barn today with the sheep and lambs. I know what you mean that I need to get myself motivated and get out and walk in addition to my two works every week.

It is back to a normal work week. I could get used to working 4 hour days. Oh well! Only 7 months to retirement.

Take care everyone.

It has been in the 70's here the last couple of days, the warmer weather just reminds me that I really need to lose this extra weight! The dandelion digging this year is aggravating the bursitis and my back. Need to remedy the fact that my body is carrying around more than it used to precancer!!

Was in the ER for 5 hours last night. I have been having pain in my left kidney area for 3 weeks and just trying to not pay attention to it. I went about life as I always do . Work in yard, walk, play with Buddy the dog. I just try not to go see a DR as I hate doing that. Well I ended up giving late yesterday when I started having sharp pain. The ER DR ran blood work, urine test witched showed blood in the urine test. He had a CT scan done witched showed 2 stones moving all witch ways and is causing the pain. Now I have to wait till they decide to go out. I will still do my work and walking and just try to ignore the pain.
This time everything with the kidney stones is so different from the last 3 times I have had them. I will survive and get through this.

I had a good day at Lady's Day. I got the piano key sashing for my sheep quilt finished. I layed the quilt out on the floor to see what is going to look like. Everyone thought it was really cute and being made of flannels it will be soft and cuddly. I am hoping to use the remaining flannels for the back.

We have had beautiful sunny couple of days, up into the 70's.

No additional lambs but have a couple ewes that seem like they are ready to pop.

I am off to my concert soon.

Have a great evening.

Deanna, I will keep you in my prayers.

We had a busy morning. I went to my work out then came home. DH was coming back from the barn and we had six babies and two moms. We needed to sort out babies if possible. Amber is a polypay and Clover is cross breed with black hooves. We put the babies with dark feet with Clover and pink feet with Amber. So far everything is going well.

I need to go pack my bags for Ladys Day tomorrow.

Asparagus sounds Great. Patch is only effective when applied properly. She put it on at 2:00pm so we'll how it is then. She told me my pain level is probably about a 10 or more based on my facial expression and what they have been givening me. As far as 2nd opinions I am probably past that. Hospise has been called in and they'll hande l all my meds and home needs. I don't think I can handle the greater distance in drive, hubby's disposition with other drivers and DD attitude. If I can deal with the healing pain perhaps all will be well.

As always thoughtfull thoughts and lots of prayers.

Happy Friday morning!

Today, my plan is to go to line-dancing class and go over to assisted living where my mom lives. She's all upset because they want to raise her monthly charge by $500. They sent her a letter saying her level of care has increased. I'm not looking forward to getting this sorted out. I have a feeling I know what's going on, but I won't know for sure until I talk to the LPN that did the "care evaluation."

Kay, enjoy your asparagus.

Ida, I hope you get your nice weather back. We had a beautiful sunny day and supposed to stay that way thru the weekend.

We still haven't had any lambs.

I have the whole day off tomorrow. I plan to go to my workout in the morning then come home and relax and putter around home.

Take care everyone.

Got my tires changed over this morning even though it is snowing out. They say good weather is coming back this weekend.

Kay.......

I love asparagus, I did not realize it took so long to harvest.

Dee....
The weather yesterday was rain and cold. Today is snow and rain.

I am walking inside today and not doing any outside work in the garden. All the water had gone out of the garden and with the inch of rain we got yesterday it is flooded again. OH well we will just wait for it to drain again. The weekend is coming and they say sun so we will see what happens.

Hi All,
I'm trying to get back into the swing of daily posting.

Three summers ago when I got cancer, I planted some asparagus plants. When I created the asparagus bed, I had no idea if I'd live long enough to get to eat any. It takes two years before you can harvest the first batch and three years before it really starts to produce. I'm happy to report that hubby and I just had asparagus from our garden for the second time this season last night and there is lots more on the way! It makes me smile every time I look at that asparagus bed and incredibly grateful each time I've been able to gather up some spears.

Wishing everyone a good day!

Kay from Tennessee

Deanna, I'm guessing you know by now if the patch is helping. I'm hoping that it is.

It's been a quiet day here, I went to line-dancing class and grocery shopping. I've been gradually changing our big meal of the day to lunch. I find I sleep better if I don't eat much in the evenings.

Wishing everyone a good day.

My Dr put me on a Fentanyl 50 mcg patch, change every 3 days. Started it on Monday at 9:30pm. Dropped the Morphine and Suppository. Oxycodone as needed for pain. Hopefully the patch will help.

Ida, it sounds like our weather is opposite to yours last week it was cold and snowy. This week it going to be much warmer may up near 70 by the end of the week.

I only worked til 11:00 today. I came home and relaxed for a while then went and sewed for a while.

So far all is quiet in the barn. Our three oldest ewes are getting rather large and have milk so we are getting close to some lambs.

I am off to out last orchestra rehearsal, our concert is Saturday evening.

Take care everyone and have a great evening.

Kay don't worry about the little things, do what counts. You might even want to consider a cleaning service once in awhile.

DD wants me to get a second opinion ( at this late date ) since my pain issues aren't resolved. She said she will take care of all the paperwork and has the names of 2 DR's that her OBGYN has recommended. Her DR also knows my DR. Even with the Morphine at 60 mg 2x per day, it's still not cutting it.

Slept thru the weekend again. Awake Sunday evening till about 2am.

Take care everyone.

Hi All,

Deeana, I'm so sorry to hear about your pain issues. I hope they can find some pain relief that doesn't put you out like a light.

FLRED, I hope the problem they have found isn't a serious one.

Thinking of both of you and hoping for the best.

Ida, I bet you loved that 72 degree day after such a long, hard winter.

Julie, glad to hear things went well at your last MO checkup. That's always wonderful news.

Things are going good here. I'm unfortunately turning into a "Lazy Bones" on a lot of different levels...including not Sparking as much. I somehow need to turn this around. I'm kind of debating on what I want to do about it. It's sort of feels like a delayed fallout from having cancer. Going through that experience made me realize that I don't want to spend so much of my time cleaning, and doing yardwork. Unfortunately now, I'm doing almost no chores, and if it wasn't for my husband picking up the slack, our home would look like a disaster area.

Deanna - Continuing to pray for you.
Julie - Can't wait to see pictures. Glad things went well with the oncologist.
CheriAnn - Hope the mouse purging went well.
Sue - Hope you are feeling better.

My colonoscopy/endoscopy had to be postponed until Friday. A problem was found, will
find out what the plan is for it when I go in. Not worrying about it, leaving it
in God's hands. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

We woke up to a couple of inches of snow on the ground.

We got the barn set up, so when lambs start coming we are ready.

I finished spinning my merino/yak wool today. I hope to spend time working on my sheep quilt tomorrow.

Thanks for prayers regarding my pain issues. Am trying a few extra things for pain relief, like a cold pack, not wearing too thick of a poise pad during the day ( have a lot of bladder leakage).

Julie, glad you had a good report from your oncologist and found the materials you needed for your 2016 quilt.

Hopefully everyone has been doing well.

Everything went well at my 6 month oncologist appointment. We talked about the lesion I have on the retina of my left eye. He agrees with my former oncologist that the lesion wasn't part of my cancer. He Just wanted to make sure everything was OK behind my eye and that was why I had the MRI.

After the DR we went on a road trip to a really neat and large quilt shop. I bought the fabric for my 2016 Sheep Quilt. It is flannel fabric in fall colors- stripes, plaids and polka dots. Looking forward to getting started after we get the barn set tomorrow. DH thinks our ewe Abbey is getting close, she had triplets last years.

Have a great weekend.

I came home from work yesterday and crashed. I was just feeling out of sorts all day. I came home and fell a sleep on the couch until DH got home. He went out to do chore and I eventually got up and started dinner- soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I was in bed by 7:30 and slept really well all night.

I only work til 10:45 am because of my 6 month oncologist check up. After we are done at the DR we are head to really neat quilt shop in Fennimore, WI. We were there one other time and I hardly got to see ant of the fabric in the store. I am looking for bright stripes and plaids for my 2016 Sheep Quilt.

I do have several E names picked out- Echo, Emma, Eva, Emmit, Everit, Elvis....

Have a great evening.

Nana, I will say a prayer for you.

We live in Wisconsin so we stopped and voted on the way home. We live in a rural area so we didn't have to wait long.

Work went pretty well. The end of the pile of data is in site just in time to go on vacation. I hope it won't be to bad because I am taking half a day on Friday for my 6 month check up with my oncologist. Then Mon - Thur I am working until 11:00 am and then taking all day on Friday. DH is taking the entire week off. We hope we will be starting to get lambs soon.

Take care everyone.

Took my meds like a good girl on Thursday and Friday, was out like a light Saturday thru Monday, hurting like a son of a gun on Monday. Got WBC shot today. Chemo nurse and I talked about the pain. Necrosis, dying of tissue due to cancer. Will probably have severe pain for the rest of my journey. She'll check into what kind of patch is available. Can't say how disappointed I am to hear quality of life. When I have the next CT scan the Cancer won't show up because of the necrosis, but I will always have the pain reminder.

Prayers for pain relief solution.

We had a relaxing weekend. I spent yesterday working sizing blocks that were all different sizes. I was hoping to be some what creative but ended up sizing them all to 12.5 in which was the largest block.

It was back to work today the pile of data on my desk is getting smaller but I am on vacation next week. Oh well!

Have good evening, I will because I get to go play music.

Spent most of the day doing laundry and spinning. I finished plying some teal yarn and started spinning the second braid of yak/merino roving. The yak spins differently so it takes a bit to get the feel of spinning it.

My brother and sister moved my mom into a new Assisted Living Center, that is set up to handle people with dementia. From what my sister said things went fairly well. We are planning a trip over in June or July. We can't go earlier because we have lambs coming at any time and then want to let the lambs be out on pasture with moms before leaving them with our neighbors.

Take care everyone an have a good Sunday.

CheriAnn, I did the same thing after I finished my chemo. Ate anything I wanted. I joined a workout/ weightloss program at the health club we belong to and lost 70 lbs. My doctor then put me on this drug for my cancer and I gained all the weight back. I can't blame for all weight gain on the drugs, but it has made hard to loose the weight again.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Julie

Deanna ~ I am not taking anything for the neuropathy except for stress B vitamin blend, potassium and magnesium. The B vitamins seem to help, I can notice the difference when I skip them. I take pain meds when it really bothers me and I can't sleep. I do hope you can get the test rescheduled, and that the pain meds do the job!

Sue ~ I sleep on an incline, but end up on my back a lot and I do have positional apnea.........I wonder if that is part of my problem as well.

Hanging out with DH today, tomorrow starts the last two days on shift for a couple of months. I am going over to my sister's house tomorrow night for a game night. I don't like all of the drinking they do, but it is nice to see them all - it will be sisters, SIL's and a few nieces. I will be the first to leave of course, because I have church Sunday! Just glad that I am at a point that I can attend things such as this. There was a time in the not too distant past when I could not! I must admit though, I don't eat as well as I should, was so thrilled to be able to eat that I went a bit crazy...........now I have to get back to work!

FLRED, hope your test goes OK tommorow. My DH was supposed to have one, but never got an RX for the solution. Cld DR's ofc, they sent it to another Kroger pharmacy. They offered to hv it xfered, I said NO. We'll get it from that one. No sense in asking for more trble. Found out it cost $79. (Kick-backs ?)

Cld Dr office asked if he would be ok if DH used an OTC prep. NO. I said would be OK
if he cancelled tomorrow and rescheduled, life is pretty stressfull right now and would like to do it when my issues are under control. DR's assistant said to call the reschedule ofc. Did, went to voicemail. Will make calls right away in the morning.

Next time will check with the DR on his/her method of prep is. We will only do OTC.

Chemo nurse saw I was still in pain, asked if I was taking ALL my medicine. All except the suppository. Guess who is next and I got the proverbial slap on the hand. He said being addicted would only happen if I were taking enough to get high on. So, I guess tonight is the night I start taking 1/2 of one and see what happens.

Take it easy everyone and don't get stung by any fool's day jokes.

Deanna

FLRED, I hope your test goes well.

I have a new great nephew. He was born on Tuesday and weighed over 8lbs. This is our nieces fourth child.

We had another cold and rainy day making it a good day to be at work, which went OK. I am so looking forward to the weekend.

Take care everyone.

I am preparing for the colonoscopy/endoscopy tomorrow. While I am going to have to take the "cleanser" stuff this evening, in the meantime, I am required to drink lots of the sugary drinks that I normally don't touch (it's my childhood dream. LOL) I hope everyone is having a good day today.

Deanna, I am so sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time. I will keep you in my prayers

FLRED, I will post pictures once the lambs start coming but we hope it will still be a couple more weeks (mid April)

Today was an OK day at work. I was told I should be getting some help on Friday. We will see what happens. It has been rainy here most of the afternoon and I think it is going stay that way for a few days. We need the pasture grass to grow.

Take care everyone.
