Good luck!

I finished cleaning DS's yard yesterday and mowed our yard too. Glad that is done.

Our weather is turning cooler too, but first we have some thunderstorms and showers on the way.

Today I'm just kind of taking it easy; I may have overdid it just a tad yesterday.

Timmy is continuing to do great since coming home, and he's not showing any signs that the seizure left any lasting effects on him.

What a scare!
I am so far behind in email since DH has been at the computer
most of the last 2-3 days. It has turned cool here, just 55 degrees
this morning but no doubt that some warmer weather will return.

Timmy is back home now, and doing great! We still don't know what caused the seizure, but one of his tests came back that he might possibly have an infection; some of his blood work had to be sent to another lab, so it will take a couple of days to find out what infection he has, if he has one. In the meantime, I have antibiotics to give him just in case. For now, the plan is just to watch him, and if he has any more seizures, then my regular vet can put him on anti-seizure meds.

It was a stressful night last night, (details in my blog) but the short version of the story is that I had to take my cat Timmy to the emergency vet last night after he had a seizure. He is still there for observation and tests.

I'm also anxious about my oncologist appointment Friday. Been having numbness around my jaw and in my lower lip; it's something that has been coming and going, but lately it's been lasting longer, so I think it's time to say something to him about it. I've been hesitant because I don't want to have go through anymore tests or scans.

Thank you! It has been a blessing to have my best friend here; she will here in town through Thursday.

I ended up having to get a blood transfusion Wednesday; my hemoglobin dropped pretty fast this time; from 9.1 on Monday, to 8.2 on Wednesday. My doctor sent me to the ER for my transfusion, as it was too late in the day to order it as an outpatient and he did not want me to have wait until the next day. And also because of the late start, they kept me overnight at the hospital. On Friday, I finally started to feel better and more caught up on my sleep, but until today, I haven't had a chance to catch up with my Spark teams.

That will be wonderful to have a friend help you with housework and such. I am sure you will have a great time. Hope those blood tests go well as this is a struggle for you.

Glad the fair went well!

I'm behind on some of "Sparking" once again; problems with blood counts are causing fatigue. But I hope that things will turn around soon. I am getting my blood counts checked again today, and if my hemoglobin is too low, will probably have a transfusion tomorrow.

My best friend Penny, who lives about 300 miles from here, is coming into town for a week or two and she'll be here tomorrow; looking forward to seeing her, and she is going to do whatever she can to help me while she is here. She already told me to make a list of things I need done around the house.

My oncologist decided he wanted to see me sooner than my August 5th appointment, so my appointment was changed to July 30th. The staff at the cancer center are really great; they know of my issues with finding transportation at times, so the social worker there arranged to have one of their volunteers drive me; it turns out that the volunteer actually lives right in my neighborhood!

Second night cleaning in the chicken barn but so hot and no air movement so I quit after 45 minutes. Maybe done in 2 more nights before it gets really hot and humid again.

Yesterday turned out to be one of the best days I've had in weeks, even though I just stayed home and did laundry. Energy is flagging a bit today, but it's still a good day!

Since I have posted last, I am now off the Ibrance, I will not be going back on it after the 7 day break. It's a decision I feel good about.

Also had a platelet transfusion yesterday.

I'm behind on stuff too, but hope to start catching up this weekend.

The Ibrance nearly wiped out my white blood count, so I am off from it for at least 7 days, until my oncologist decides how he wants to proceed. I also had a blood transfusion yesterday. With the transfusion, and now almost 3 full days off of the Ibrance, I am feeling much better!

I haven't been as active on Spark for the past week; just finished my 2nd week of Ibrance and it's really making me tired; I have one more week on it before my week off. If this fatigue keeps up, I'll ask my oncologist about adjusting the dose.

Had a couple of nights with not enough sleep, so this past weekend wasn't one of my best, but it was far from one of my worst; overall, it was a relaxing weekend for the most part.

Had lunch out today with some of the gals I use to work with; we meet the first Monday of every month. It was nice, and I was especially glad to be able to go today because I had to miss the ones in May and June.

In about an hour, my cousin will be picking me up for an oncologist appointment, and I might stop for a few groceries on the way home. Then I am going to get into my pjs early and just relax.

Yesterday was a pretty discouraging day, didn't sleep well the night before, and I missed an appointment I had at the pain clinic, because when I had called the day before to arrange a pick up on the Dial a Ride bus, they did not actually get me put on the schedule, and by the time I had called them to see why the bus was late, it was too late for me to arrange another ride to get there, so I had to reschedule that one for next month.

Today has been a lot better though; I slept a lot better last night, and a friend took me to the store for a few groceries and then mowed the yard for me. Had an internist appointment this afternoon, a followup from my hospital stay and that all went well. It's also a beautiful day here; warm, but not hot, and nice and sunny! And now I am happy that I have 3 days in a row with nothing on my schedule.

We are getting some much needed rain today, and it's been pretty much a steady, all day rain.

Right now, the forecast is saying that our 4th will sunny with a high of 80.

Overcast now with high clouds and temps in the low 80's. Looking for the heat to come
on midweek but cooling for the weekend. The 4th looks to be pretty nice considering it can get to 110 for the holiday and it has in the past.

Lottie, I'm so sorry to hear of the kitties you have lost. emoticon

Our temps have been staying a bit below normal here, most days it does not get above 80F, which is fine with me. We could use a bit more rain, but I can't really complain too much, as we are not getting the severe weather here that other parts of the country are getting.

The last 2 days have been hotter but not so that we can't work outside. We just take more breaks. The garden has improved immensely and the rain missed us last night so we should make more progress this week.

Glad that you are feeling better. I know that some of my meds are expensive but most of them are alot lower that they have been. Glad that they now have the correct phone number. We just got rain last night after 13 days of heat and being bone dry. So far, I have lost 2 cats because of the heat- Baby that I raised on a milk bottle, and a kitten that we buried yesterday. I think it has affected everything.

It will soon be time to mow my lawn too.

I spoke with a customer service rep from the specialty pharmacy today; my copay on the Ibrance will only be $5.88; UPS will deliver it to me Monday, so that is when I will start it.

I'm also done with my antibiotics today, from the cellulitis, so that is making me feel better today too!

So glad the correct phone number has been provided to them and hope you hear something soon.
The garden is looking better but we took a night off. Guess mowing the lawn has to come first LOL!

Thank you Marsha; I know the pharmacy, just waiting for them to call me. I heard from someone from the cancer center today and I found out that the pharmacy was not given my correct phone number; when I had used that same pharmacy last year, I had different phone number, so they were trying to contact me through the old number. They have been faxed my current number, so I should be hearing from them soon.

Had my weekly CBC done today; hemoglobin is good today! 13.2, which is a lot higher than it's been for a long time.

Several chances at rain and thunderstorms for the next few days. Almost no wind today but yesterday morning was tough on the tomatoes.
Hope you find out what pharmacy is handling your new medication.

I am glad that your medicine is covered under your insurance. Sometimes medicine can be so expensive. It is hot here today. We have been in a heat wave most of this month.

We are under a severe thunderstorm watch here until 9pm, but so far, we've only had rain, a little wind (just enough to blow leaves out of the trees) and thunder far off in the distance. It's only 70 now at the moment, and it's around 3:30pm, so hopefully, the atmosphere won't heat up too much to get any storms started.

I found out today that the new cancer drug my doctor wants me on, the Ibrance, has been approved by my insurance, but I'm still waiting to hear from the specialty pharmacy about when I will start it and what my copay will be.

Praying for good results on your tests.

We had a wild wind come through about 4 this morning and there are plenty of
tree branches down. We lost one in the maple tree next to the house but it was
partially dead. It was damaged in the tornado 6 years ago.

Sorry I haven't been on for a while but have been studying like a mad man. I have finished the course in Medical Billing and Coding and now I have 2 certification exams and 1 proficiency test to go. It has been so hot (we are in a heat wave) here and I only go out when I have to. We have been in the upper 90s to low 100s for most of the month. I have lost the cat that I raised from a kitten on a milk bottle due to heat and I will be glad when it lets up some. It is almost watermelon season and I am wondering what July has in store for us. Wish me luck on those tests.

Slowly but surely, still recovering. The biggest problem I have right now is the fatigue.

Thank you Marsha; still waiting to get the approval for it, but at least today I have the name of it; I asked about it when I was at the cancer center today getting an injection, and I had the nurse write the name down for me, it's called Ibrance.

I ended up in the hospital with a cellulitis infection in my right arm, (the same arm I had lymph nodes removed from when I had my bilateral mastectomy in 2003); I went to the ER Tuesday afternoon with a very red, painful, and swollen hand and arm, and a fever. They kept me for a couple of days to give me I.V. antibiotics. I went home around 7:45pm yesterday. Now I am on oral antibiotics for 7 days.

I had my oncologist appointment earlier today to go over my recent CT scans. The cancer has spread some more within the bones (mostly in the spine and ribs) and also in the liver; my liver is now 30% tumor; but the good news is that for now, the cancer is not affecting the liver enzymes, so the liver is still functioning as it should.

He said there is a brand new drug that he wants to try; I can't remember what it's called, just that it begins with an "A", and since it's so new, it's only available from a specialty pharmacy. I'll have to wait for the pharmacy to call me and set up the delivery. I will be taking it along with another drug called Femera; both are oral drugs, and they are not chemo, but hormonal treatments. He is also going to keep me on the Halotestin injections because he said they are helping to keep my blood counts up.

The place we went to is a locally owned business, called The Arctic Penguin.

Accomplished a mini-goal for this week, 5 days in a row of exercise! It's been a long time since I've been able to do that that many days in a row.

Was this a Cherry Berry place? One just opened near here last year and we haven't gone there yet.

My friend Penny went back home today; I'm going to miss her, but I'll be seeing her again towards the end of July.

We treated ourselves to frozen yogurt today, at a new place just opened up in town, before she left.

My friend Penny is coming over in about an hour to help me finish organizing the spare bedroom I use as a storage room; I'm very thankful as it would have been too big of a project for me to do alone. I'm also finding lots of things to get rid of, and lot of those items will be donated.

Thank you!

Unfortunately, the sale of the contents did not go as well. Part of it was a low turnout and the weather; the auction company had most of the stuff outdoors, and the weather was cold, windy, and rainy; not the kind of weather where people want to linger outside and browse.

But most of the leftover things will either be donated to the local domestic violence shelter (either for the residents in the shelter, or to sell in their resale shop), or will be sold in a yard sale that my friend Penny will have later this summer.

Marsha, glad to hear your DH is home now, prayers for speedy recovery!

We had the burial for my mom's ashes on Thursday; we could not do it at the time we had her funeral in November because of the weather. It was short service at the cemetery, but very beautiful and meaningful.

Today is the auction for my parent's house and the contents. My dear friend Penny who is also the executor of the estate is out there this morning; she called me about 20 minutes after the auction started to tell me the house sold right away, which is great news! I think it will be another 2 hours yet before the auction for the household goods is finished.

I still need to finish the deadheading of my roses. It has been so hot that I haven't finished. Went grocery shopping this morning and got the stuff to make chili tonight for supper. I even made enough to put some in the freezer. Now the problem is to find a spot in the freezer for it. My freezer is a small one and nearly have it full.

Penny is here again helping me, this time with some stuff outside; she potted a caladium and some wave petunias I got today, and now she's doing some weeding. Earlier today I got a couple of hanging baskets for my porch from Lowes. I usually get my hanging baskets earlier in the month, but I put it off because we were still getting frost overnight last week.

Glad to be back.
Went to his momma's tonight for supper. She had hamburgers and hotdogs. It was such a pretty day today. I took a walk this afternoon. My aunt came in from her river house and so I went down there for a little while. Nothing much going on here.

Welcome back Lottie!

Marsha, I'm so sorry your MIL lost her house; I'll keep her in my prayers.

My friend Penny has been helping me out this weekend; Saturday she started painting my shed for me; however, it's been raining off and on since Sunday so now we have to wait for a dry day so she can finish it up. She came over today and did some cleaning inside the house for me.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in palliative care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Sorry I haven't been on for a while. Sounds like life got in the way of quite a few people. Just started back to walking this morning. Made it 1 lap around the yard where I used to could do 3. Am going to have to build myself up to that again. I have gained so much weight back and it is starting to produce some health problems.

Hope you get good results.

A Mother's Day tornado devastated DH's hometown and we had other clients who lost everything but clean up is proceeding. MIL lost her house and most of her belongings but will rebuild a new home. DS2 go married that Friday so life has been a bit hectic.

Thank you Marsha!

I'm thinking of you all, and you are in my prayers.

I haven't been as active on Spark as I usually am in recent weeks because of issues with fatigue; however, I had a blood transfusion a week ago, and I am feeling better.

Just had CT scans done this morning, to check on the cancer that is in the lungs and liver, now I am trying not to be anxious as I wait for the results.

Welcome back Lottie!

I just noticed today that this thread was active again.

We had a nice weekend, sunny and in the 60's, but today has been rainy, windy, and only in the 50's.

I'm still having problems with the anemia from my bone marrow suppression, the worst part of it is the fatigue that goes along with it. For right now, my doctors are keeping a close eye on my hemoglobin level; I've been having to get blood transfusions every 3 weeks, but so far, I've made it to the 4 week mark since my last one. Right now, I have to get my blood counts checked twice per week, at least through the end of next month.

Visitation is now set up but GF can't seem to hold baby more than 5 minutes at a time. Not sure how she will last until he is 18.

Just got my computer back from the man that fixed it. It was full of viruses but everything is working good now, actually better than before.

Court hearing did not go as expected. Judge needed to appoint
attorneys for GS and GF. She certainly has enough people working
with her to have had that done a week ago. Still wants to transfer
everything to Sioux Falls and I am not about to let that happen.

today has been a rough day today. Had to finish tabbing my coding books. My stomach has done flip flops all day/ Things could be worse though.
