Blah, Blah, Something About Chemo 3...

Thanks to all of you who prayed for me during the last few days. I think word spread pretty fast, but for anyone who doesn't know, I came down with another infection and had a fever of 102.1 that Tylenol wouldn't bring down. I was thisclose to being back in the dun, dun, DUNNN.... E.R. again so I was miserable! Thankfully my temp never reached 103 and my onc. let me stay home and recuperate away from hospitals!

I did have a follow-up appointment yesterday and learned two things that scared/annoyed me. Will write about that later. Keep sending prayers because all of this has been going on at the worst possible moment with Terry- he's got clients in town and a scheduled full of meetings so he hasn't been able to escape the office to be with me.

I got emotional at the oncs office (probably more from feeling so badly and less from Terry's absence) and cried almost through the whole thing (I know- big weenie). Had some trouble convincing onc. that I don't need an anti-anxiety drug. Although maybe I do cause I meant to ask Terry for my Zofran the other day and accidentally said Zoloft. Freudian slip? :)

No actually, my mood is ok. (It's the body that's not!) Things get me down momentarily but God is so faithful and merciful to keep holding my hand so I'm doing ok. And who couldn't cheer up around my blonde boys?


  1. My doctor says the world would be a much better place if everyone took a little Zoloft. :)
    Praying too. I hate that you have to go through all this!

  2. love you and praying!! you're doing so wonderful!
