Hanging in There!

Well, today is definitely better. There is still some nausea, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. I'm still very sleepy, and that is made worse by the meds. I took every drug I had today (with the doc's ok!), and had hoped to feel even better--but I can handle this. The Oncologist called this morning to see how I was doing. That makes me feel good to have the doc himself call, and not just the nurse; makes me feel like I'm in good hands.
I can't believe how much I slept yesterday, and even slept through most of the night (only 1 potty-break!). I NEVER sleep like that. I think it must be the chemo and not just because I don't feel well. Unfortunately, the chemo seems to affect me more after a few days. I've heard of that happening to others as well.
Ugh--listening to the news--this swine flu stuff is scary--usually I ignore this type of stuff, but I really can't afford to get the least bit sick. I may not survive it. Not a pleasant thought. Oh well, its in God's hands anyway, right? OK, now that I remembered that I feel better! See how this journaling stuff helps?
Thanks to my wonderful sister, and Renee from church, my fridge is FULL! Thank you, Thank you! We won't need a meal for awhile, and we'll save money by not being tempted to get something from a restaurant. I wish people knew my sister as well as I do--she goes way above and beyond anyone I know when it comes to helping others. And she just does it, and most of the time no one even knows it. There will be alot of saints in heaven to great her someday to thank her for getting them there. Love you Dee! (and I'm sure she's very uncomfortable with this right now--but that's what little sisters are for!!!)
I've been trying to stay awake for awhile, but its time for more meds and a nap! I would like to read, but feel to woozy to focus on a book. Listening to some good praise music might be just the thing.
Craig or Mary--tell mom I got her message, but have been to sick to talk on the phone--let her read my blog please-thanks! Hope you are well up there!!
Love to all!


  1. I can totally relate. I am sure I slept through most of the six months of my Chemo treatment. I couldn't read anything because the Compazine made my eyesight too blurry. I hope you will get to feeling better soon.

    I'm scared about this Swine Flu epidemic / pandemic (what is the difference?). My son and his fiancee were planning on going to Mexico for their honeymoon but I suggested they cancel and go elsewhere. Here's hoping they find someplace to go. Wedding is July 11.

  2. Someone is under the influence of too many drugs...but thanks. :-)
