Had another set back again with the hemoglobin levels. On Monday, 9/28, it was at 10; when it was checked again this past Tuesday, it was down to 8.2, that is quite a drop within about a week. I started not feeling so good over the weekend,... Read more

At the beginning of this year, I wasn't sure I'd make it to my next birthday, but here it is; I am 52 and still here. Not doing anything special today; didn't make any plans because it's hard when I don't know how I will feel from one day to the... Read more

I had what might be the last appointment with my oncologist Friday; I'm still officially a patient, but for now, there is no purpose for him to see me once per month since I am no longer in treatment. (I'll still be under the care of my family d... Read more

Toprol is not for me!

Thursday, September 17, 2015      22 comments

Well, I decided that the Toprol was not for me. It did bring my heart rate down to almost normal, but I didn't feel any less tired; in fact, I felt worse. I felt very "sluggish" all day after I took it before bedtime on Monday night. And it real... Read more

Penny got here in town yesterday, and she is staying on through until my birthday, which is the 27th. This morning, she took me to Walmart to do some shopping. I don't normally shop there, as I don't like their grocery department as well as... Read more

Yet another half day spent in the ER

Wednesday, September 09, 2015      26 comments

I had to make another ER visit yesterday; had not been feeling very good again the past few days before that, and was nauseous too. The rapid heart rate seemed to be getting worse, and I wasn't sleeping much at night either. Yesterday morning I ... Read more

Liver ultrasound report

Friday, September 04, 2015      38 comments

I had the liver ultrasound yesterday; the test itself went fine; it was painless, and took less than 20 minutes. From the time I got to the hospital, changed into a gown, had the ultrasound, and got back into my clothes, I was probably there onl... Read more

Ultrasound of liver scheduled for Thursday

Friday, August 28, 2015      27 comments

I know it often takes a little time in between when a doctor orders a test, and that test is actually scheduled, but after a week went by and I still had not heard from the hospital after my doctor ordered the ultrasound of my liver, I called th... Read more

I put it together myself!

About a week ago, I ordered rolling storage cart with drawers from I bought it to replace the current cart I was using for all the stuff I keep next to my computer. That was just cheap 3 tiered cart with just open shelves, and ... Read more

First, I will start this blog out with some good news; Timmy is continuing to do well now that he is home. He was even "naughty" this morning and got up onto the kitchen sink to see if I left any dishes in there. I didn't have the heart to scold... Read more

A Trip to the Emergency Vet

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      22 comments

Last night I went to bed early, around 7:15pm, woke up briefly at 10:30pm and noticed that my 15 year old cat, Timmy, was curled up beside me, sleeping and purring. Then I woke up around 12:25am to him having a seizure; it was so scary, and quit... Read more

Finally using the new computer, and a busy day with errands

Monday, August 17, 2015      20 comments

Finally got my new computer running! And the problem I thought I had with the old monitor not being compatible with the new computer? Thankfully, it was a much easier ( and way less expensive!) fix than having to buy a new monitor; the tech that... Read more
