Saturday, February 15, 2014      39 comments

Just a quick blog to let you know that I made it through surgery just fine. I stayed overnight in the hospital, which was good. I needed the IV pain meds. I decided at the last minute not to have new implants put back in after they took ... Read more

Friday, February 07, 2014      26 comments

I haven't been blogging much because there is not a whole lot going on right now. I'm just trying to build up my stamina between finishing up my chemo three weeks ago and going in for surgery next week. It feels like progress is very slow, but... Read more

Last Chemo.... Ever....I hope!
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      36 comments

Right now, I'm getting what I hope will be my last chemo ever. I say I hope it is my last chemo because if I get any more chemo after this, it will mean that something hasn't worked the way we hoped. Today marks the end of six months of ... Read more
Chrome and Activity Trackers
Sunday, January 12, 2014      16 comments

A few months ago, I got a Chromebook laptop. I love using it because it boots up very quickly (in a matter of seconds) and is so fast at shutting dow. It also runs very quickly while I'm using it. Compared to a Windows-based laptop it is incr... Read more

Tuesday, January 07, 2014      36 comments

My appearance has changed drastically of the past month with the second form of chemo I am doing. I'm basically bald now and have lost pretty much all of my eyelashes and most of my eyebrows. Without make-up I feel like I look like a ghost. H... Read more

I had my second infusion of AC chemo on Tuesday. The first time I had it, my blood pressure bottomed out and I was flat in bed for a week. They gave me more fluids this time and ran everything slower and my BP stayed stable. I have felt much ... Read more

Thursday, December 12, 2013      23 comments

Wow! It feels great just to feel good! This second kind of chemo that I'm doing is a lot different from the first one in terms of how I reacted to it. It's also different in that I do it every other week instead of every week. A big part... Read more
