Is it aleady Friday? (again)

Hi Gang :-)

It seems these posts get further and further apart. It's not because I don't want to talk with all of you, quite the opposite. Nothing much to say. The past week since camp chemo has gone fairly well. I had a day or two with some stomach problems and I just dealt with it until it passed. I'm wondering though if the stomach aches had something to do with not having the benadryl last Friday? I will ask them about that today while I'm there. (Yes, it's Friday again already! My how time flies!) Today will be Round Two, Visit 5. After today I have 7 treatments to go. (Yes, I AM counting) Today marks a milestone for me...I'm going to chemo ALONE. I figure it's about time.
Lots of people at "camp" are there by themselves and I decided that I'd give it a try. I'm sure all will go well. (I'll be sure to tell you if it doesn't lol)

On a non cancer note (which is always a good thing) the weather here in Michigan has FINALLY turned nice. I'm not holding my breath though because I'm sure it won't last. I have been enjoying it while it's here though. I've been walking my dogs every day. We went to the vet last week for routine shots and Cubby is 9 pounds over weight! (who's ever heard of a fat Australian Shepherd?!) We have changed her name to Chubby! Even little Frankie who only weighs 9 lbs could lose a few ounces the vet said! So walking we will go. It's not like the walking won't do me good as well! ;-)

Well, time to get ready for "camp." Have a great day, get out and enjoy the sunshine where you live!

  1. OF COURSE you're counting!! So am I! And I'll be thinking of you today at your appointment, you brave woman :)
    And YAAAAAY for the sunshine - that's gotta make anyone feel good! I know people don't like to hear Californians whine about the weather, but we've been having some crazy cold wind with highs in upper 50's (I know, go ahead and roll your eyes - lol) its 37 degrees here this morning but supposed to be warming up. Take care Joanne, and thanks for the update.

  2. I hope that all went well at Camp today. You are getting closer to this being done! :0) Glad the weather is turning around so you can have some nice days outside while you are out burning calories on Cubby.
    Take care,
