Wonderful Post!

I saw this post yesterday on my lupus support group and thought it was wonderful!!!

False friends are like our shadows, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.

What a week!

It was a crazy week. My dad had a heart attack on Thursday and was put in the hospital. Me and my sister spent all day with him on Friday and then I had to have my treatment at 3:00. Treatments are getting better I am just ready for them to be over. I was at the hospital all day on Saturday and then went home and rested that evening. I spent Sunday with my dad until noon and then my friend Crystal took me to her mom's house to cut my hair. The chemo is killing it so we chopped it all off. Then she took me for some dinner. I don't know what I would do without her. She comes over and checks on me, takes care of my dog and feeds me.

Tuesday Treatment Day!

The weekend went by so fast and here it is time for another treatment today. I cant wait! LOL. I think I am starting to handle the treatment better and all the side effects. I really am trying to get back out there in the world but I don't want to over do it. I just do little things around the house and then have to rest. I just wish things would get back to normal. Oh what I wouldn't do to just be able to pick up and go some where and not have to worry about this disease.

Its the Weekend!

Yeah it is the weekend. I know I have a treatment tonight but I am so looking forward to the weekend and resting. However I am still waiting on one of my friends to come by and clean my apartment!!! LOL. I really think my body is getting use to the chemo so it is getting easier. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hump Day!

Well yesterday was the doctors visit and it went okay. Doctor said there is little improvement but wants to keep the chemo treatments for one more month. I was upset because I am tired of being sick but if they are working I need to keep doing them. I also had an ultrasound of my spleen and gallbladder due to swelling. The doctor thinks it is due to the medicines but better to be safe than sorry.

Starting to feel better

The weekend went by fast. I was pretty sick Friday night and really started feeling better on Saturday. Well that was until I tried to go eat seafood! No chemo and seafood do not mix. So the rest of Saturday I was very sick. Sunday came and I was still sick and so very hungry. Well I found something that does go with chemo! Snow cones! One of my best friends Crystal called to see how I was doing and she went and brought me a snow cone. It really hit the spot.

When is it too much?

Things just are not getting better. I am just wondering when you stop listening to the doctors, stop taken treatments and just give up? When is it too much?

Just another Monday

Well the weekend went by fast. My treatment was Thursday, sick on Friday and started to feel better by Saturday. My sister came and stayed with me and took me to the movies. It was a good time. I am dreading tomorrow's treatment but am so glad that I only have three more to go. I have all my test run again on the 14th and will go from there.
