A Little of This and That

Yesterday turned out to be a long day, but I am now completed with my third treatment. I have to go in this afternoon to get the shot that builds the white cells and then next week another pet scan.
I didn't leave the center until eight thirty last night. I went in at one but the Dr. has to be there before they can administer the medicine so he put us a little behind and then with the added bag of Iron he has put me on, that added time so it was a very long day to sit in a recliner and because of a positional problem with my port I am sort of limited as to how much I can move. And so needless to say I was exhausted and hungry! But after getting home and eating, I was ready for bed and I slept really good thank goodness. I'm up pretty early this morning but so far so good. None of the side effects usually show up until the weekend.
Someone has called to see about buying Jonathan's car. I am letting my mother handle this as she is good at this sort of thing and I don't really feel like dealing with it myself. It sounds promising, in his price range and he likes the way it looks. SO we shall see if that pans out.
I'm working on my coffee and fixing oatmeal for breakfast, sounds good and nourishing to me.
So I will see what today brings and onward we go. I am so thankful to wake up feeling pretty normal today with an appetite no less. I in fact am
And so I will stay focused on one day at a time.
My spirits are good, and I am happy to be doing so well right at this moment.
I hope you have a good day.
I'm going to play with my jewelry making stuff today and take it easy.

I'm late with commenting. But I think about you often during the day.

I love rainbows. I'm sure Jonathan was thinking of you and sent one as huge as his love for you.

Half way there - you're on the downhill pull now. Your doctor sounds really nice.

I hope your day goes well. What lovely piece of jewelry are you going to create today?

Hi Mary, well, I have two wonderful Chemo nurses and I'm thinking of making them each a bracelet. I'll share pictures if I do.
I hope you have a good day today and thank you so much for stopping by.

I'm glad you are feeling 'groovy' today. Maybe your body is adjusting to the medicine and you won't have any bad days this time.

Hi Shirley, wouldn't that be great? Maybe that added iron is helping. Whatever, we'll take this day and make the most of it. Hope your day is a good one too!
