Hello good friends:
Well, it's taken me a few days to get to writing to all of you since my last chemo infusion on this last Tuesday. Today is Saturday and I am still hurting in my legs, feet, hands and other places too. It's mostly alleviated by the percocet, so I'm not complaining too much.
I had some nausea and sharp pains in my abdomen this time, but those things happen. I didn't vomit and was always able to eat, so that was good. Food and especially water and other drinks don't taste right, but I drink anyway, cause I know it is good for my system.
Ordered some more caps for my head this week. They should be here on Monday. I am looking forward to them. They are sleep caps and fit a bit better than the scarves. But I still love my beautiful scarves that my daughters bought for me.
I still sleep alot after the chemo. I have to take a nap every day, but that's ok. It doesn't interrupt my schedule. lol! I dream a lot and last night I was in an argument with a bunch of nuns in the church. Hahahaha Don't know what that was all about! Usually I have disney dreams. They say it's from all the steroids I take before and during the chemo. lol. But I do get the sleep in, so that is good, even if it is technocolor or black and white as it was with the nuns!!!
I went to my weight watchers meeting place this morning. I wasn't up to staying for the meeting, just wanted to buy some chocolates from w.w. and see the leaders. I haven't been there since May and they were all so happy to see me. I weighed in and found that I had gained 7 pounds. The steroids are helping me gain the weight, but I am being more aware of the junk I have been eating too, so I hope to lose just a few. I am anemic, so I have to be careful, but I have to eat right too. Just indulging too much, but that's kinda understandable.
I am very happy to hear from you all when you write in to me. It helps to know that you are praying for me and that I have all your support. Sometimes it's unnerving, this cancer, and I wonder how it will all turn out, but then I remember, I have all these people praying for me! I am fine and strong and I will make it. My husband continues to be my anchor and I don't know what I would do without his support. I love him and my family very, very much.
Oh! my granddaughter, Kelly, lost her second tooth last night at dinner and used her new tooth fairy pillow last night that I made for her. She got 6 dollars from the tooth fairy.! But grandpa will give her more. lol!!!
Thank you for all your support and love. I love you all very, very much.
