Saturday, September 03, 2011      2 comments

Well, for the most part the visit the oncologist was what I expected. She was mostly interested in the increase in neuropathy symptoms in my hands and feet. She suggested that I go off the arimidex for a month and then see her again for bloodwor... Read more

I have my 6 month check up with the oncologist tomorrow. I expect it to be about a 30 minute wait for a 5 minute appointment. I am not sure why they schedule these things. They don't do any tests; they just ask you how you are doing. I can give ... Read more

The weather in BC is very different to Ontario. I have spent some time by the water. I just love the ocean. There is nothing like it. It is like a balm for the heart. I remembered to bring my camera with me so I have taken some pictures. I just ... Read more

I have been trying to live in the moment, to enjoy the time as I live it. I spent 30 years of my working life planning everything to the last minute. I even had a menu and shopping list on the fridge that lasted a month at a time. Nothing was le... Read more

I haven't made an entry in some time. Time seems to slip by very quickly. Some days I can barely keep up. Well, I had my port removed yesterday. It was a bit difficult. The freezing kept giving up and the surgeon had to give more four times! Wit... Read more

It has been some time since I have entered a blog. The last time was Oct. I was like a cake batter in a bowl. Recipe: 8 cups of anger and resentment (husband), 6 cups of confusion (what do I do now?), 5 cups of frustration (how do I manage to do... Read more

It is amazing how your eyes are opened to the people around you when something happens like a health issue like I have been dealing with for a little over a year. At first everyone is shocked much the same as I was. I was in a haze. Everything ... Read more

Sunday morning I woke up with a bad cough and severe face pain and of course a fever. So I went through the process of calling the on call number for my Dr.'s office. Eventually I spoke to a nurse and gave her the low down. She called back ten m... Read more

Well I turned my hair pink again. It is long enough to look like a thin layer of candy floss. My hair is growing very slowly. It is about 2 cm long. I don't have any visible eyebrows yet. I plan to stay pink until my Herceptin is done. I was tal... Read more

Thursday, September 30, 2010      4 comments

This post is partly a rant and partly observation. After talking to a woman, let's say her name is Karen, today, I got to thinking about the givers and takers in our lives. From the time I was young I always had this mantra that doing for and su... Read more
