Just me Jabbering

I woke up to the news of Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother having been shot to death and her little nephew is missing. You know her, American Idol, Dream Girls and she's in the Secret Lives of Bees Movie right now. My heart goes out to her, I just can't imagine. Sad, sad, sad.
This year has not been the best year. I will always remember 2008 for sure.
I have my first usual side effect, a sore throat, but other than that I am feeling really good this morning. I even slept all night, sort of. I went to bed early, woke up at two and then slept in the recliner from about three to seven. Not bad since I'm on the steroids. I have two more days of them and hope I never have to take those little suckers ever again. They are also the culprits of the high blood sugar. But they help me from being sick, sick like hanging on the toilet sick and thank goodness I've not had that to deal with.
Yesterday we had a nice slow rain all day. No more rain today but I think it is going to be kind of balmy looking, at least it looks that way out there now.
My thoughts are with Tammy today as this is the day for the ALS Walk. She is actually going to walk too and I'm so proud of her and she's raised so far almost two thousand dollars which is awesome. I wish I could be there right beside her walking away. She's in California and I'm way down here. But my heart is there.
And so, that's about all I know for today. I hope your weekend is a good one.

Robbin, I am so glad to hear you "jabbering" since it means you are feeling OK! You must be so relieved to have the chemo DONE! I am hoping you can get off the steroids soon. I know they are terrible drugs and I cannot even take them. I suppose if I were in your situation I would HAVE to but otherwise, no way. I will head over to Tammy's and congratulate her on such an awesome accomplishment!

much love, dear woman that you are. ;)

Hi Linda, yep, feeling ok so far, although I know I'll have the side effects soon but maybe they'll not be so bad this time.
Thanks for checking in on me and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Love you!

How sad that was about Jennifer Hudson's family. I hope they find the person that done it and may he get his just reward.

Oh my, I know you will be happy to be done with the steroids. I think I hated them more than the chemo. I'm sure your blood sugar levels will begin to come down, and you will begin to have an overall better sense of well being. It took a few months for me, but thankfully, it got better.

Got aquainted with Tammy through your blog. She is quite an awesome lady...and warrior I might add.

Well just call me Chatty Kathy tonight...LOL

Blessings Robbin, peace, & all good

Hey Me Maw, yep, those steroids will mess you up for sure. I'm so glad you went and met Tammy. She is something for sure.

Robbin,
You were right beside me! I'm sending you my wristband that I wore in the race. It says "Never Give Up"

I wore two, one for Pam and one for you!

Love you,
T

Hi Aisling, I'm not doing too badly, just in that fog sort of but so far not too bad. Thanks for thinking of me and checking on me.
