And I'm still hanging in there! No news is good news...that's what I have to say today. I went in for my Monday "shot" yesterday, and so far so good. I'm actually feeling pretty good this morning. Could it be that my body is getting used to its toxic intake by now?! Three out of four A/C chemo treatments done, and only one more to go (2 weeks from now). Then I will get switched to a different drug and hopefully that one will go as smoothly as this one. I've been occupying my time quietly at home, and running any errands I need in the late morning to early afternoon. I still get pretty pooped out by late afternoon/ early evening and by the time Steve gets home from work I'm pretty glassy eyed. lol
On the food front, I've been trying to stick to simple foods lately. Fruit, yogurt, eggs have all been working for me. I had some yummy chicken soup dropped off at my house the other day and that was tasty too. I also received a wonderful new cookbook from a friend of my sister in Dallas, "Betty Crocker's Living with Cancer Cookbook." I've been looking it over and there are quite a few recipes that I'd like to try. Thanks so much for the book Nita! :-) Now, if we could just get some of that Dallas weather...we'd be in GREAT shape!
Nothing much else to report on the last few days, isn't THAT good news! Carly will be coming home Thursday night from Chicago. She is working on a documentary film for one of her classes
this semester, and guess who is the topic of the documentary?!! My elementary school has decided to honor me and the theme of their March Reading Month this year is "Read for a Cure."
Carly will be home to attend and film the assembly for her documentary. More about this later in the week though...so stay tuned.
Hope all of you are having a good week, I'm looking forward to the temps here in Michigan rising into the 40's this week. And see what happens when I recommend a movie (Slum Dog Millionaire) it winds up winning LOTS of Academy Awards. lol Hope you all get a chance to see it.
