I have not forgotten all of you!

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      27 comments

I haven't forgotten Spark or my friends here; I've just been busy, worn out and tired and haven't had a chance to do much of anything online. I haven't even had a chance to read my blog comments, Spark page comments or look at my Spark goodies, ... Read more

Some background before I start, if you haven't read my blogs before. I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer in 2003, I won't go through all the details about my treatment because that is on my Sparkpage. In 2007, it returned, this time to... Read more

Thursday, November 06, 2014      19 comments

While I am a bit frustrated that I am still getting tired easily despite my hemoglobin levels being up, today is one of my better days. I had chemo Thursday and the Neulasta shot Friday, and today is the best I have felt since then. I was e... Read more

2nd Halaven today and 1st Neulasta shot

Friday, October 31, 2014      20 comments

I had the 2nd Halaven chemo yesterday. A bit of good news on the hemoglobin counts; last week after the transfusion it was 10.8; I was hoping it would stay the same, or at least not go down very much. But to my surprise, it actually went up, to ... Read more

..........for my 2nd Halaven chemo tomorrow. Since yesterday, I've tried to make the most of having a couple of days of feeling better while at the same continuing to pace myself so that I do not overdo it. It's not so much the fatigue that is t... Read more

Slowly building myself back up

Sunday, October 26, 2014      18 comments

As I posted in my last blog, Friday was a bit of a tough day with barely any sleep the night before because of the steroid they gave me with the chemo. I thought I was going to be ready for an early bedtime Friday night, but I did not start feel... Read more

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the prayers and support! It was a long day yesterday getting my blood transfusion, and at the cancer center, they give Benadryl as a premed. It was just a low dose, but I am sensitive to it, so I w... Read more

No chemo today, hemoglobin too low

Tuesday, October 21, 2014      21 comments

Once I got the the cancer center, and in the infusion area, my nurse drew my blood for labs and got me started on fluids. It was about an hour wait for the labs to get back, and because my hemoglobin was only 7.0, they could not do my chemo toda... Read more

Pain clinic appointment

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      18 comments

My pain clinic appointment went well. I saw the PA there, instead of my regular doctor. He's always been very helpful to talk too. He also worked at one time with my oncologist, so that helps too; he doesn't hesitate to consult him about me if h... Read more

I had my "teaching" appointment at the cancer center this afternoon, it went fairly quickly. I got to the cancer center with almost 20 minutes to spare, and when I walked in, the nurse practitioner who was doing it was there talking to the recep... Read more

More information on starting chemo

Thursday, October 09, 2014      22 comments

Yesterday I received a call from the social worker at the cancer center. I had known her from before, when I had radiation treatments in the past, when they just did the radiation there and not the chemo. She's very good at her job, and very eas... Read more
