Ready for the Day

I had such a good day yesterday. I felt so good and I got something actually done productive. Got some housework done, took a little walk with Sweetie, had supper with my mom and stepfather. I got two special cards yesterday, one of them a singing one. I got a phone call from someone special. It was just an all around pleasant day and for that I am thankful.

I also had a very peaceful night, I slept good although I am up early, that seems to be a thing with me lately but that's ok.

Today I go for my third treatment. That means I'll be half way done. So the big thing now is deciding what to wear and what little hat to wear. My favorite hats to wear for treatments are made of cotton knit. I have two that tie in the back and they are my favorite ones. I have a pink one and a blue one made like that. They are the most comfortable ones to wear when I am having the treatment.

SO far my eyelashes and eyebrows are hanging in there. I've lost some of them but at least I have some.
But you know what? I've lost my nose hairs. Very weird. You never appreciate nose hairs until you don't have them.
I'm wearing my new Chandelier earrings I made last week.
I couldn't get a very good picture of them but you can get the idea there.
My appointment is at 10:45 and I'll be there all day. I'm usually done by six if things go ok. And then tomorrow I do it all over again with that other drug the Dr. added.
And so that's my story for today.
Hope your day is a good one.

I've been thinking of you this morning and praying that all goes well and that the treatment is as user friendly as it can be.

I love the earrings. You are so talented. I visited the game site you told me about and down loaded a "free play" game (Heros of Hellas). My goodness!! This could get addictive - but I never did really get the hang of it. Thanks for telling me about it - this winter it'll be fun on dull gray days.

Hope this treatment goes well. You are so upbeat about it all.

The earrings are great. I bet they look really good with your hat.

dear robbin, I think you are probably done by now and feeling pretty beat up and then tomorrow again..I feel bad complaining so much when you are going through this hell! I love your earrings and hope they help with your symptoms...many crystals and stones are good for healing and if you can make jewelry, you could make a pendant of rose quartz for quieting, something for nausea(don't have my book so don't remember)....anyway, I hope all went well, your week stays good and you don't have any nausea spells or worse yet, no, I am not going to say it....

xoxox (((((((((((((BIG HUGS)))))))))))

Thanks everybody, I had a very good treatment, and even slept really well and got up at seven thirty. The earrings were a big hit, and made me feel good. Love you all! I took all ya'lls strength with me and that makes it easier for sure.
