Day to Day

I went to the oncologist on Monday for blood count check. All counts were within normal range. I have had a hard time getting my energy back after the last treatment. I thought maybe my blood counts would be down. I have been really tired this week and my bones were aching. The doctor gave me a strong pain killer which helped. Now I just need to get my energy back.

My hair started falling out after the last treatment as well. I still have a lot of hair to lose. I am hoping having thick hair will play to my advantage. It has been more annoying than anything. There is hair all over the house and it is always all over me. Emmy, our dog likes to go around and clean it all up for me. She is such a helpful little dog. I just wish she wouldn't put everything in her mouth.

I am just trying to go through this day by day and I know God will take care of us. God is good!

Hi Stephanie:

Now isn't that just like us women! Emmy is picking up that hair, because she is jealous. She longs to have your beautiful long hair, and who wouldn't, but it will grow back. We will not fret for that, but today I am praying for you to have more energy and hope that you have an appetite and feel like eating. I found a scripture in Psalms that speaks to strength.

Psalm 138:3
Daniel 10:18 and 19

We are loving you, praying for you, thanking God for you.....call me if you need me/Ann

Hi Stephanie,
Thanks so much for postimg on my sight earlier. This thing we have is a crazy ride, huh? It gives me so much strength to find other women whom I can share this with.

I had my first ABVD last thursday and am still feeling the effects. I still can't believe that I'm having "chemo"? I mean, me? really? You must feel the same way, huh?

I'm anxious to see how you're feeling as you go into your 3rd treatment.

Thank you again for finding me and making a connection!!

Love,
Heather
