Monday Update

"They" say the effects of chemo are cummalative. I can really see what they mean. This one seems to be going away slower. I've been cranky for 4 days. Poor Kyle. But tonight I got motivated and did some yoga, even though I was tired and cranky. I guess some of the crankies was cabin fever, because I felt better afterward. Its all raining here this afternoon, so that doesn't help the mood. I wanted to go for a walk, but its all raining. The yoga seemed to work.

Just when I was getting frustrated that maybe the chemo wasn't working because my lump wasn't going away, it shrank some this weekend. WOO HOO!! I am so happy! I was getting paranoid that I wasn't responding the chemo and all the worst case scenarios were running through my head (6 full cycles of ABVD, switching to Stanford V, stem cell transplants). So I am moderatly happy right now. Happy & cranky. Thats a fun combo. LOL

On the bathroom news, its all done! Correction - the fixtures are installed. One can now use the restroom on the main level of the house. Yay!! There is still some drywall sanding to be done, and painting, and it probably needs a nicer light than the bare bulb in there now. But at least I have a handy dandy electrician buddy who can fix that party up pretty quick. I just need to pick a nice night.

It is good to hear that you know chemo is working. That means that all the yuk you are going through is worth it. That means you will survive. You have a lot to be thankful for. I don't know Kyle but it really is good to know you have a help mate. Thank you Kyle. You all hang in there for just a little while longer and you both will come out on the other side stronger better people. hiccup

Yay bathroom!

Yay yoga!

Boo rain. But at least there won't be much rain the rest of the week. Although apparently record lows by the weekend. That could work out well for going for a walk. Better than the nastiness here.

If you want some entertainment, and a short walk, Gretel and I will be happy to come down and join you. And I promise I won't make you help me carry her back home!
