Consolidation has begun

1381955_10201294229811241_1536914804_nWell the fun has begun – chemo has just started! Let’s do this thing! The morning started off a little rough as I laid in bed not wanting to face the day. I grabbed my Jesus is Calling book and read September 23rd message. I said a prayer and popped out of bed. As I approached the kitchen the mood was somber. My Dad & Mom’s poor dog Milo (best dog EVER) was lying on the floor lethargic. Poor guy has so many health problems, diabetes (takes insulin twice daily, heart murmur, cataracts). Mom called the vet and Dad was on his way with him. I loved on him before he left as I knew he probably would not be back and I was right……..they put him down. Of all the freakin days! Poor Mom was crying on the way to the hospital, Dad crying on the way home from the vet and all I wanted to do was just go home and try again tomorrow……..not an option. Anyway, we got here by 10 AM, in room by 1035 only to find my physician had forgotten to fax over orders soooooo needless to say my treatment didn’t get started until late. I will probably choke him when I see him lol. (kidding totally kidding don’t want to go to jail for a threatening message) You know me instead of getting pissed off that we had no orders Mom and I got right to work on getting the dorm room decorated so, pictures, posters, and banners are hung. Candy box is full for staff and guests. (Always, always, always take care of your staff) Thank you to all of my family and friends who are checking on my kids and making sure they are okay. I know they are young adults but, they are still kids who are scared. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! So the journey continues……………Keep the Faith!

If I were 20

My partying last night has caught up to me today. I slept till about 10AM, stayed up for a few hours and then went back to bed and slept another 2.5 hours. Geez, I mean it’s not like I closed down the bar. My sister Kris came by and showed me how to use my new blog she set up for me. Sooooo if you want to check it out you can go to: Becauseihavecancer.com I will be posting updates there. I may continue to post on FB and then copy and paste there too – haven’t really decided yet. Kris is sooo computer savvy – unlike me lol. Haena came by for awhile after the color run. She had a blast. I feel so bad for her, the poor girl worked 8 hours Friday, left at 430pm Friday afternoon for Iowa for a soccer game, traveled back Saturday and then had the color run today. I’m sure when I was 20 it wouldn’t have fazed me, but just thinking about it exhausts me. Not sure what’s on the agenda tomorrow. I’m hoping to hear from Barnes tomorrow and may try and talk my Mom into driving me to Chatham for a pedicure – these feet are a mess! OH I got the giggles last night. When I went to bed I was kind of chilled and realized my head was freezing lol. I had to pull the covers over my bald head so I could go to sleep. Guess I’m gonna have to start sleeping in a beanie or something. What do these bald guys do? I mean do you get use to it? I kept rubbing my head to try and warm it up lol. Once again, something new to get use to. I did get outside and enjoy some of this beautiful weather. Hope you all had an awesome Sunday. Keep the Faith!
