I'm having issues with fatigue again, but I'm trying to work around it.
One change I am making is visiting Spark in the morning, instead of the the late afternoon, when I am the most tired.

That is pretty much our weather here too; doing a lot better with the pain issues today with the sunshine and warmer temps!

I'm having some pain issues today with the damp and chilly weather, but it's tolerable; at least no headache today. Thankfully, I haven't had to go anywhere today; I was only out long enough to get the mail.

Finished putting together the fair booth this morning but forgot to take a picture of it. It looks good though. Am feeling better than I did yesterday. I guess I just had a bad day.

I had a pretty productive day yesterday, but today I was fighting a sinus headache most of the day, ended up taking a 2 hour nap, and I am usually not a nap-taker. I am feeling somewhat better now though.

Thank you Marsha!
I'm still waiting to find out when I start, but I'm in no hurry. Now that I've been off my previous cancer meds for a few days, I am feeling better, and not so tired. I think maybe my blood counts are improving. It would be nice to feel a bit stronger before I have to start the chemo.

Helen, that is sad when people steal from places like Goodwill; to me, that is the same as stealing from a regular retail store.

Goodwill truck comes next week and I have several bags and boxes ready now but since DS is coming home this weekend, I expect I will have at least 6 bags. Time to get rid of all the extras.

Getting ready to take the last 7 bags of clothes to the Salvation Army. I can't believe I had so much stuff. And the sad part was the fact that I didn't wear over half of them and the other thing that is sad was the fact that I didn't even know why I bought alot of that stuff. The Salvation Army is going to really love me this year.

Just got back good from taking a load (5 big bags) of clothes to the Salvation Army. I had go to the drug store and to get my allergy shot as well. I haven't even got started good on going through my clothes. I am sure they will get a lot more. Nothing major planned for the rest of the day.

Hello;

I'm sorry about neglecting to check in again; I've had some issues with fatigue again so I've been low on energy, but that is starting to get better now.

My cancer treatment will be changing again; I had been on an oral treatment for about 8 months, but it's no longer working, so now my doctor is putting me back on IV chemo, a drug called Halaven. I was told about it yesterday. Now I am just waiting for a call from the cancer center to find out when I will be starting, but I'm in no hurry. Going to make the best of each day til then, and once I start, it will be one day at a time.

Went to the extension agency this morning to run off the handouts for tomorrows talk on Fall Planting. Went back this afternoon and helped pot up some things for the fair booth. I am doing a talk in November for the Master Gardeners meeting on grafting. Am really excited about both the fair and the talk.

Seems like the older people get, the more stubborn they get and set in their ways. Sooner or later she will see the light and go to the doctor. I just hope nothing was broken. Will still pray for you and your mother.

Thank you both very much. She says that she is ok, but I really do not believe that as she is moving much slower and tonight she could not walk from the counter to the table which is only about 2 feet apart. And before she could. I wish she would not be so be so strong headed when it comes to things like this.. emoticon

I had a scare today while at work I received a call from Mom. She had fallen, Thank God she is doing fine. Yes, I was able to leave work right away. Can you please keep her in your prayers?

Helen, Continuing prayers for you and your mom. Sorry to hear about the rumor. Just continue to do a good job and people will see if for what it is. People can be real troublemakers at time...especially if they have nothing better to do.

Lottie, I was at stage 4 kidney disease after I went into total kidney failure a few years ago. Now after following all the doctor's instructions, I am in stage 3 also. However my kidneys are throwing too much protein...3 times what they were throwing a year ago. Hopefully I will hear something tomorrow. Nobody seemed to work over the holiday weekend. I will post something when I hear from the Cleveland Clinic doctors.
Good luck with your battle against your kidney disease. Praying for improvement for you.

TEAM HUGS!!!

Sorry to hear about the rumor. Sometimes they can hurt.
Helen, hope your biopsy results come in soon so you can be at least informed of the situation. I have kidney disease so I know it is a hard battle to go through. Have not had a biopsy yet though. Am in stage 3 at the moment.

Thanks Helen. That means alot to me. Now there has been a rumor that I have given my 2 weeks notice. I never did such a thing. And I have gone to my chain of command and informed them all of what is happening. It is hard to believe that I have only been on days for a week and this has happened.

Mom is still having nose bleeds and I am almost sure they are stress related.

Helen I hope you get your results soon. Praying that everything will work out good with you.

Continuing prayers for you and your mom. Especially that the contractors are able to get you back. Thanks for letting me know.
So sorry they are screwing your around in the different areas every two week.
Thank you for your prayers. I am still waiting on the results of my kidney biopsy. They are supposed to get back to me within a week to ten days from last Friday. LOL!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!! HUGS!!!

Thanks for the prayers Helen. Work is ok not good but not bad. Heard something that has me unhappy. I was told that I will be rotating through the store in different areas every 2 weeks. I told the second in command that does not work well with me taking care of Mom. The contractors are fighting to get me back permanently. I hope and pray that happens.

Helen you are always in my prayers.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!

I am going to have to cut down to 1 mile today as my knee is killing me. That's alright though. I will go back to 2 miles the week after next. I have arthritis in my back and knees and that sometimes doesn't allow me to do things. Am losing weight though.

Walked 2 miles yesterday and going to walk 2 miles again today. My knee is sore but that is to be expected. It is the one I had orthoscopic surgery on back in 1990. Have a lot of housework to do today also. It never stops.

I went with my younger daughter, Richelle, to her sonogram appointment this morning and we were able to see her unborn son's facial features, etc. very clearly. AWESOME!!! PTL for getting this opportunity!!!

Hope your day was as great as mine!!!

Heading to near Columbus, Ohio, tomorrow with Richelle to help work at an Appaloosa horse show. Love spending time with her and I am excited to see all our horse show friends. I missed last year due to having brain surgery. PTL I am able to attend this year and am so thankful that Richelle doesn't mind dragging me along. lol She enjoys the free help of her momma!!!

MOMMA_BEAR_69, thanks for the encouragement. I am hoping something will come along. Gets boring staying around the house all day. Sure I do housework, but that brings in no money.

I finished all of my classes for my degree in Horticulture Technology this morning. Now I don't know what I am going to do in all of my spare time.

How are your sunflowers doing, Vicki?

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their weather.

We have been getting severe thunderstorms for several weeks now and they are to continue through the weekend. Many areas around us are flooded. This is keeping the fire departments, etc. busy pumping out streets, basements, etc.

We, however, have not had any problems and stay away from roads that are flooded. Praise the Lord for his mercies.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

This morning I got out and transplanted the sunflower seedings I had started in the house. I was going to do it the other day but the weather wasn't co-operating. Anyway, they're planted now and can't wait to see them in full bloom. These will get up to 12 feet tall.
Hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday and can get out and do something you enjoy.

How do you keep your sodium down that low? I'd LOVE to be able to do that since I retain fluid so badly.

Yes I do keep my sodium low...to less than 15 grams per day. That was recommended by my kidney doctor. It was hard getting used to but I have been doing that for five years now. Great suggestion though!!! Thank you!!!
Going to check out your blog if I can stay awake.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Do you keep your sodium low? If you're getting too much sodium in your diet, it'd keep your blood pressure up.

Today has been a busy day ( see my blog ) and I'm super tired and hurting a good bit in my hips and back. Going to take it easy the rest of the day.
Hope everyone else is having a good day.
