Half way there!

Well, I had chemo on Monday, since the snow we got Thursday night caused me to reschedule last Friday- and found out that I am half-way finished with my chemo!!! YAY! I will start a different regimen when I go back in another two weeks which actually has even less of a chance of making me sick- I am so relieved to hear that! I have done so well thus far and I really do not want to be sick at all. I am even missing our annual chili cook-off at work tomorrow night (which I might add, I won last year-lol) out of fear of all the germs that will be floating throughout the building.

I would just like to take a moment and thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and hugs. It really means a lot to know that you are all pulling for me to get through this quickly and easily. I am doing my best to do so.  Well, I hope everyone has a good rest of the week and hope that we  can go through it without any more of that dreaded white stuff-btw- we got about 5 more inches last night! ugh! very pretty but so tired of it.

She's such a SWEET 16 year old...

I can't believe it- My Allison is 16 now. She had a dance party last night and some of her favorite friends were there to help make the night she will always remember! There was plenty of food, music, singing & HELP (thank you VERY much), and laughter! She received some fabulous gifts from her fabulous friends and I do believe that everyone there really had fun. I will have to post pictures tomorrow because I haven't uncovered my camera as of yet- it's here, I just haven't put my hands on it yet. knowing Allison, she probably grabbed it and has it in her room reviewing the whole night! I had to laugh tho', when I said goodnight, she sat on her bed and signed "birthday finished",I chuckled and said "yes, it is done now". She climbed into bed, pulled the covers up and fell into a fast sleep, probably dreaming of the night she will always remember...thank you friends

I think I can, I think I can...

Well, I made it through the week only to find that my white cell count is low again, at least I am not on house arrest this time! I don't think I would follow the rules with Allison's sweet 16 party tomorrow night- Looking forward to a fun night with good friends and family. Then I can rest Sun & Mon before heading back to school on Tuesday- just glad it is a long weekend! Enjoy it my friends, whereever you are.

Today is a new day!

Yesterday I was rather tired, and seemed to fade as the day went on... literally, I did nothing but change into my warm p.j.s when I got home from work -at 3:30, I might add. Then at 4:30 I managed to put some frozen pot pies in the oven for dinner. WOW, what a great dinner- actually, it wasn't bad-  ;-). Then a little after 7 me husband suggeted that I just go to bed since I was asleep in my chair, so I did! When I got up this morning, I felt so rested and had slept well. Yes, today was a new day, & I still feel good (even tho' I did have a brief nap in my chair this evening).

#3 behind me...

Well, I had chemo on Friday and am feeling pretty good still. Lets hope things stay this way- I  feel worse from my surgery on Thursday than anything else. I tired of being sore, and having to be careful about how I move my arm. I know, complain, complain-lol. ay, that's all then. The news of the day is that my nephew married Maggie today and I know they must be living it up right now! Well, actually eating dinner then they will be living it up! Have fun everyone, love you-

just another day in my life

WEll, after I had my port study done last week (because of the pain that shot through me when the nurse tried to access it for my chemo) and found out that I have a leaky port, I couldn't get anything done about it umti the doc received the report- which he finally did today!.  Sooo, I have another surgery scheduled for Thursday to replace/repair the leaky port. Then on Friday I will have chemo #3. I can only hope & pray that I have the same reaction to this one that I did for #2, which was no reaction at all!!!  It flet good to feel like the same ol' me again!  :-)

until next time, hugs, and enjoy your days, family & friends

i'm done...

With my break that is- I hav rested and enjoyed the time off but am ready to get back at it and see my kiddos again, not to mention the great friends at work as well.  Today was a nice finish, I got most of the Christmas stuff put away then went to see Narnia with my sweet daughter. Loved it! Then cam home for steaks on the bar-b and baked potatoes, yum! Tomorrow my children will see me with a wig, definitely a change-and so the ride begins a new leg-
