Fevers and lawn mowers

Friday, March 27, 2015      1 comments

Danny had gotten his chemo on Tuesday. Wednesday we spent the day at Randolph AFB, where Danny was "Pilot for a Day." We brought two of his friends with us, and I must say that it was fabulous. They left no stone unturned when it came to fun ... Read more

Allergic Reaction to Platelets

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      2 comments

After Danny's panic attacks, which were a week ago, and after he recovered so completely, I wasn't expecting to come back to the clinic until Tuesday of this week, for regular mid-cycle chemo. However, about 6:30 Thursday morning, Danny woke me... Read more

Why do I do this to myself?

Sunday, March 22, 2015      4 comments

Every single year I vow that I am not going to let the grass/weeds grow too high over the winter so that I won't face a nightmare when I break out the lawn mower. And every single blasted year, I have an epic fail at keeping that vow. I mean E... Read more

On a lighter note...

So I was invited to my cousin's wedding in North Carolina. My inclination was to want to go, since family is important to me, and this family is scattered all over (one cousin in NC, one in Japan, one in Las Vegas, and one in Maryland). But th... Read more

What next? (I did not want to know the answer to that question.)

Danny had a couple of weird episodes yesterday that threw me for a loop, to put it mildly. It seems that we have another problem on top of all the other things he has been dealing with. It is an old saying that God never gives anyone more tha... Read more

So Very Proud of my Son!

The last three days of Danny's chemo went pretty well. I was astonished on Wednesday, when, during the chemo, Danny told me that he wanted to go bowling afterwards. And he wanted to bowl six games! Danny is in a bowling league on Saturday... Read more

New Week of Chemo

Thursday, March 12, 2015      3 comments

This week Danny is getting chemo every day, and we are sort of used to it by now, since this is the fourth cycle of this particular regimen. However, there have been some differences. No two cycles so far ever seem to be alike. Also, th... Read more

There's always something. Last Friday we went back to the clinic for counts and a talk with Dr. Whiteway. The first thing she said was that it hadn't been white blood cells in Danny's spinal fluid after all. Instead it was the liposomal... Read more

Delays and Ironies

This morning Danny seemed to be feeling a bit better than he had the previous couple of days. We headed to the clinic for his scheduled chemo. Before anything else, I asked Dr. Gidvani to look at the bruise on his back where he had had six pre... Read more

Back pain

Sunday, March 01, 2015      3 comments

Not a great week for Danny, although it should have been. The first part of the week he was indeed feeling well, and back to his old self. Which typically means that he talks my ear off, usually about his games. And we were on a litt... Read more

Catching up

Sunday, February 22, 2015      3 comments

I haven't updated much on Danny in awhile, just occasional status updates. After the long week of chemo every day, which I described in my last Danny update, he had blood counts done Monday and then Friday of that week. The counts were pretty ... Read more

An aunt of mine died last summer at age 102. I never actually met her, although I had met her husband (my father's older brother) once at my grandmother's funeral. They lived all the way across the country from us, and, for whatever reason(s),... Read more

How Danny is doing

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      4 comments

Still don't have the pictures on the computer, so that will have to wait. But I thought I would at least update on how Danny is doing. The treatment regimen he is on is very, very hard on him. I am not sure why, but it almost seems to be ... Read more

Life has gotten away from me recently, such that my blog posting has almost stopped. I am unhappy with myself over this, but it has been tough. Good old Mr. Murphy also got involved...about two weeks ago, I had typed out a long blog and was al... Read more

Danny treatment update, part 2

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      6 comments

Danny just couldn't seem to get a break. It was a real roller coaster ride for a while. He would seem to be doing well, and then crash back down. Then it would happen again. :-( Monday the 15th, when he had chemo again, he seemed to be a... Read more
