Elizabeth, welcome back and glad to here about your remission.

Kay, spring is starting here finally. My tulips are up and blooming but the squirrels are eating the flowers.

I just got home it was a long day but I got to play music with my friends. We are getting ready for a wedding on 16 May.

Our ewe Cora is still holding out.

Take care.

Julie

Thank you, Kay. I can fully relate to your enjoyment of Spring one year later.

emoticon emoticon I hope everyone can enjoy the glory of Spring.

I have new walking poles from Black Diamond and plan on using them as they keep me balanced and give me a little support. It is making a difference. I also bought an amazing pair of shoes from Altra Zero Drop Footwear. They are like walking on soft pillows with my neuropathy and yet give me support...nothing like them!

emoticon My best to all.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth, congratulations on your remission and getting off the cancer meds. That is wonderful!!

Spring is beautiful here in Tennessee right now. I was just finishing up treatment about this time last year and really didn't have much energy to enjoy it. I feel like I'm just now getting somewhat caught up on yard work and have some time to sit back, relax and enjoy our beautiful surroundings here. It's a wonderful feeling.

Kay from Tennessee

Hi All,

emoticon I am here with you! I am so sorry I disappeared from SP and this terrific group. Spring is here!

A combination of computer issues, travel to Boston for oncology and appointments, visiting friends, connecting with grandchildren in Gloucester, and working more...all took me away from you all and from staying on track.

Another issue is that my oncologist took me off of all my chemo drugs. I was having a time with withdrawal and changes in my body as I did this. Terrible stiffness and joint pain came upon me.

But the good news is that I am basically in remission, just like Tom Brokaw. Tomorrow is a new day and a new beginning.

All my cancers were caught early, so I didn't need radiation or chemotherapy. I don't know what you are going through, so I can only guess?? You see I worked with 4 known carcinogens for 13 years without my knowledge!! When I found out we had a couple of weeks til the company shut down completely and moved out of the Country for " good" ???? It was nice of them we couldn't even touch them!!!! Since then I have done a serious watch on my body and if anything was off I went to the Doctor. I'm glad that I did it saved my but more than once.

All things are possible through Jesus Christ JUST BELIEVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was able to get all six baby quilts pinned before running out of pins. I then quilted the table runner.

We let the moms and babies that are still in the barn out in the small area behind the barn for some fresh air and grass.

Well its back to work tomorrow. The weekends are too short.

Take care.

Been busy here. I wish I had time for a nap. I moved the minis to a different pen, I then moved goats to lower pasture. During lunch, I noticed Dotty water broke. She is now the proud Momma of a little girl and boy. Now husband and I have to agree on a name.

I took a nap this afternoon, and actually went to sleep this time. Unfortunately, it was longer than I intended, so I hope I won't have trouble sleeping tonight.

Warm here today, got up into the upper 70's; had to turn the AC on for the first time this year.

We had a small earthquake yesterday here in Michigan; it was 120 miles from where I am, just a 4.2, but I felt the house shake a little bit.

I am having a nice Sunday. Went out to visit the sheep and now I am working on pinning quilts together. So far I have three baby quilts and a table runner pinned. I have two more but I am starting to run out of pins, we will see how far I get.

Today I woke with one of my nasty headaches...Glad I was able to keep some ibprophen down and it finally went away. I am hoping I can relax a bit today. I have to milk, take husband his lunch, and stop by to see my Grandma. Hopefully I can also get a few things done around the house as well. I have a never ending pile of laundry and dishes wanting my attention.


Julie Yes we have Lamancha and Nubian goats. I agree January is to cold to kid, but my mother in law put all 3 bucks in with the does way to early last year. I was not happy. It was crazy we had babies dropping sporadically. 7 kidded in January. 1 in February, 1 in April, and now we are waiting for Dotty. I hoping this year with MIL gone we can keep better track of when and to whom does are bred to so we don't have another mess next year.

Sue I understand completely that its the getting up part to go. Today I am in a lazy mode myself going ugh do I have to do this lol

Thanks, Melissa! That's a good strategy, I will try it. Often once I get started, I end up doing a lot, it's the getting started that's the hardest:)

Julie, I just love the way you do the names, I was thinking that each set of lambs went up a letter, but I did realize that each year, they go up a letter. That makes more sense anyways:)

Melisa, welcome to the team. From a few things you have written it sounds like you have dairy goats. We have a small flock of sheep a ram and six ewes. We plan for lambing in April because we don't want to be lambing in Jan. here in Wisconsin.

Shari, I noticed my tulips are up and blooming also. Hubby cleaned out some over grown bushes and now we can see them.

Sue, all the babies will have names starting with D this year next year will be E.

We had a somewhat quiet day. We had plans to be away for the day but decided to stay home. We added Clover and her twins to the mix in the main pen. Every one seems to be getting along.

I did get some sewing time and laundry done also.

Take care everyone!

Sue you can do it. I know the feeling of dragging! I feel like I been running all day and there is still 100+ things to do. Just prioritize and celebrate small victories. One load of laundry, one load of dishes, pick up 20 things. . Good luck I know what its like having those dragging days.

Good job Melissa and Shari! I went to the store and stopped at Denny's and got something to go. I need to go grocery shopping, do laundry, clean the house, everything! I have not done a thing since coming home from vacation and it has already been 10 days!
I wish I didn't feel so tired all the time. I sleep, go to work, and sleep some more and that's about it. My house is a mess, my suitcase is still packed, and there is no food in the house! When will I ever feel good again?

Good morning!

Doing my laundry right now.

Beautiful day today; we should be hitting the low 70's.
Was out walking around in my yard and noticed I have tulips open and I have blossoms on my clematis vine.

I am happy to say I have kept on track with my diet and exercise for 2 days! Hopefully I can do it for the rest of the year. Last night we went out to dinner. I DID GOOD. My son said mom you don't have to start your diet today you can wait tell tomorrow. I told him if I did that I never start my diet!

New babies are always fun we have a few running around. Our babies started coming in January, and the last Mom is due any day. Dotty is bagged and her tail head is lose. This is her first season kidding. We have sold 6 of the babies already but still have 12 running around. That is in goats. We also have a baby llama. Now if you want a good work out go put a halter on him.

I hope everyone is doing well!

Once things settled down in the barn lastnight, I headed to bed. My hubby came in about an hour latter and said Amber was having her babies. She had twin daughters, there names are Delta and Dawn. Charlotte had a boy and his name is Dewey. Still waiting on Cora we moved her into the pen Abby and her babies had been in.

We put Annabelle and her four babies, and Abby and her three into the main pen in the barn and they now have access to our main pasture. Abby hasn't been as rough but that.'s probably because they have more room. Watching the 7 babies running and playing was fun.

After last night and getting up early this morning I am tired tonight.

Take care!

Julie

Kay, I have a few irises that are just now starting to come up; mine are purple.

Sue, still feeling very fatigued. Not much I can do but rest and keep drinking my fluids til I get rid of this UTI. Hemoglobin is still trending downward, but not as quickly as it was before. I am on a higher dose of my thyroid med, which should help, but I know that will take a few more weeks yet.

Julie,I'm sorry the baby lamb didn't make it. That is sad.
Kay, the flowers look really pretty!
Crazy, it all takes time. I hope you will be able to ride again soon!
Ida, I'm glad you are doing better!
Shari, how are you doing?
Cheri, you sure had a busy day! I hope you don't overdo it! Enjoy your dinner out:)

I have been sleeping after work again, then waking up about 7pm and staying up too late, then being tired all day at work. It's a bad cycle to get into it. I do need a vacation from my vacation. lol

Frustrated! I cant even saddle my horse! I figured I needed the exercise. Went to pasture, got horse, walked to tack shed. My husband decided to put 3 saddles on trying to remember which fit the best. I lifted three saddles on and took off. Not easy on a 17 hand horse. I got to hot, felt light headed, and came inside. Just so frustrated after surgery I over heat and have no energy. I know weight loss will help, but I want to go horse back riding!!! Can I count this hour as exercise?

I had a busy day. Work followed by my cto5K run.

When we got home one of the ewes was in labor. She had one earlier that didn't make it not to sure what happened but the baby looked like it got stepped on. The second baby is doing OK so far. We had some issues with one of the other ewes trying to steel the baby. It took us a while to get her away from the baby so mom could take over. It was pretty noisy in the barn with all the baaing.

I am off to bed after a quick check on the barn

Cheri...that massage sounds wonderful.

Shari, I hope you are getting some rest and those antibiotics do their magic.

It's rainy and chilly here today. I went to aerobics class this morning so I got my 10,000 steps on my fitbit easily today. I spent the rest of the day puttering around the house and yard. The hummingbirds have arrived so I put up several feeders this afternoon. We are going out for sushi tonight with some friends. I love sushi!!!

I cut some irises to bring inside. We have all different colors of them. These are some that I think are pretty. I'm not very good in the "flower arranging department."

Shari~Glad you had rest day...I do hope your energy levels get better.

I had the most wonderful massage today - ordered some homemade facial cleanser and moisturizer as well. A bit pricey, but if it works it is worth it. There goes the Christmas money I was holding on to!

Tonight is the night we usually go out to eat, so today was a rest day for me as well. Our poor dog hurt his leg though and I am so hoping that he didn't do any permanent damage. If it is not better in a couple of days we will have to take him to the vet...I am hoping it's just a sprain.

CheriAnn; enjoy your day off and your massage!

I only had to go out for my standing order lab work today; nothing on my schedule til Monday again, so I'm planning on staying home and resting up so that I can heal from this UTI.

Shari~ So sorry you had to visit the ER, but so glad your UTI was diagnosed and is being treated.

Julie~ Love the names for the little ones!

I am so tired tonight!! Good thing I don't have to get up early tomorrow-my day off. I am going to straighten the house a bit and then go for a massage. I have some Christmas money I have been saving...

After work I ran some chairs my mother wanted over there and visited a bit, came home and dug some dandelions, was going to try and take a nap but DH came home and we planted some lilies and three rosebushes and I found yet more dandelions to dig out! Watched a movie DH wanted to watch and now my bed is calling me!

I hope everyone had a good day....and a restful night. Have a wonderful tomorrow everyone!

Good evening! Just got in from the barn we let Annabelle and her lambs out in the pasture with the ewes that haven't lambed yet. It was a little crazy as the babies had a hard time keeping track of mom and the other ewes weren't interested in the lambs.

As far as taking care of the lambs mom does most the work to begin. We make sure moms have enough food to make milk. As the lambs get older we have an area set up called a creep area where we put food for the lambs. There is a special gate that the lambs can get through but the moms can't.

Good morning all,

I am still pretty tired out; part of it is from the hemoglobin being on the low side, and I also read that fatigue is a side effect of the antibiotic I am on for the UTI. I'm glad though, that I have a day to just stay home today. Just going to continue to take it easy and keep trying to get those fluids in.

Ida, that is scary, I'm glad your doctor really took a good look into the ER paperwork. That's one down side about having to go to an ER, you never know who you are going to get (at least in our local hospital) and some doctors are more thorough than others.

Deanna; I'm so sorry you have to have more rads, I'm sure you were really looking forward to being done with that part of it.

Julie, have you named the new lambs yet?

I ended up going to the ER yesterday morning; kind of a long story, it's in my blog today, but the short version is that I was dehydrated, and I also found out I have a UTI; on antibiotics for that right now.

Julie what fun, all of those babies running around!!

Ida~I am so sorry you are having these issues. Praying for wisdom as the Drs treat you for the heart attack and gall bladder issue.

Shari~I hope the groggy feeling has gone and you are feeling better. I am praying for stamina and strength for you...

Kay~Sure glad all that nasty weather passed you by.

Nana~ So sorry to hear you have to have more treatments!

Sue~So resting is not a bad thing!! You will have to get into the swing of things soon enough.

It has been lovely here! I got to stop by my brother's grandsons house and talk with him and his Mom. I also got to pray with Christian before his surgery yesterday. His Oncologist said the masses in his chest are shrinking, and when his treatments are over in June he is sure that they will be able to say he is in remission. Good news!

As for me, I still get really tired, The vitamin B's have been helping with my neuropathy though and it is not as bad as it has been...hope to be able to say soon that it's gone! (or at least mostly gone!)

Thank you all for your well wishes. I am doing better today.

My DR called me from her home and is going to look over all the ER paper work better today. She said just by looking quickly that I also was having a heart attack along with the gallbladder attack. She said she will get back to me today. The hospital & ER here I really do not like. I will not mention the name of the hospital. When our DR rushed my DH in the ER for a racing heart. they said I was nothing and to check with a cardiologist in 3 month to be checked out. Well that is what we did and come to find out he had hade a heart attack and was lucky that he was alive. The cardiologist did not know how he was still alive as it was that bad and they had to put a implantable cardioverter defibrillator other wise know as a (ICD) in his chest to make sure his heart keeps beating. It is by our Faith in God that he is still here. I am glad that we have Life Flight up here in the mountains that can come and get us to Boise for treatment if needed. It is worth the $60 a year, as it will not cost any money for the flight.

Ida,I'm sorry to hear about your gall bladder attack, and hope you are doing better now. I sure glad it wasn't your heart! It's really nice that your church friends prayed over you!

Julie, have you thought of names for the babies yet? Your little herd is growing fast!

Kay, I'm glad to hear that the storm missed you!

Shari, I hate the drugged out feeling the next day after taking a sleeping pill. You seem to be doing really well all considering though:)

Deanna, I'm sorry you have to go through 9 more radiation treatments and 2 more chemos.Just when you thought you were done too! My prayers are with you!

I haven't done a thing since returning from my trip except sleep and work. I sure hope I do something this weekend! It's going to be in the 80's and maybe even in the low 90's so I should get out and do something:)

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

I have been laying in bed, recovering from cancer, chemo and radiation and all it's side effects for 2 years.
I feel I have 'recovered' now and it's time to move on!

Sllept good Sat night and last night (9 hrs and 1 potty run).

Bad news- Today was supposed to be my last radiation, but I need 9 more radiation and 2 more chemos to make sure the 2 lymph nodes in the area are fully treated. It is what it is.

Been trying not to take anymore sleep aids than I have to. Would rather sleep naturally.

Thanked my chemo team on what I thought was my last round. I pass out easily but so far with all the blood work and needles have been doing fine. THEN, on the last day had some pain at the needle site and passed out twice.

Glad you are doing well with needing no transfusions Shari.
Good luck with your surgery Ida.
Hope everyone else is doing fine.
Deanna

Had a pretty good day, ending with playing music with my friends.

I have been trying to upload lamb pictures but they keep coming back as to big of a file.

Ida, I hope you are feeling better.

Take care everyone!
