I have had a couple of busy days. BY the time I got home last night all I wanted to do is get things around for today and go to bed.

I really didn't want to be at work today so I am really glad it is the weekend.

Relaxing a bit before bowling tonight.

Take care!

Today is 4 years that I have been in remission from Breast Cancer, 12 years for tumors cancer & 38 years for ovarian cancer. I know somewhat all of you are going through. My prayers are out there for all. My DH X wife died of cancer 1.5 years ago.

God has all of us here for a reason to help each other go through this horrible disease.

God Bless

Well we made another round...now on to next hurdle....Tuesday and CT scan to see if anything is working!!!! While I am nervous at least I will know if things are worth it!!!!!

Hope that you can check out my Blog today as it is dedicated to you! And I mean every word of it!

Please remember as we turn the calendar to yet another month that November is Lung Cancer observance!

Seems like things are going OK around here but I really miss Shari! Has anybody heard how she is!

Hope you have a good evening and weekend! Again I can't thank you enough for all of your support!!!!!!

I got my x-ray report today. It says there are "moderate facet hypertrophic changes" in my C-spine. I Googled those terms; it's too complicated for me to try to explain what they mean, but from what I read, it sounds like that is what is causing my neck pain. I won't really know exactly what is wrong until I talk to a doctor, but I am hoping that with that report, my pain specialist can treat the problem. I will be seeing him on the 12th. Since it's not the cancer causing the pain, I think he will be of more help to me in this situation than my oncologist will.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Hi everybody - it is Nov 1, and I have to get back on track. I have had a very bad few weeks: no exercise, eating all the wrong things, not holding myself accountable.

So...time to turn a new page, and get back on the proper eating, sleeping, and exercise track.

I was trying to catch up with everyone, but I couldn't get through all the things I've missed. So, I will just wish everyone well. I hope that all those going through treatment are coping with it as well as can be expected.

I plan to stay much more focused and disciplined this month!

Ok - where did everybody go? - I look kind of silly talking to myself!!!!!

It is raining here right now, but I am hoping for a break in it so I can get a walk outside this morning...if not I will "walk" in place

Daddy just got up and seems to have had a good night...that's always a plus

Hope you each have a great start to November!!!!

You are welcome Jean!

Good Afternoon and Happy Halloween!!!!

Not much going on today except it is bill paying day. At least they are all paid and I even have a tiny bit left over! That’s why I am late getting on SP today. (although I spent the early morning sending goodies to 4 teams! LOL) If you didn't get a goodie - let me know - I did not leave anyone out on purpose!


Daddy's blood work came back good today except for platelets a bit low...they said they will recheck Monday


Have a wonderful day

Jean, I am glad you are feeling a little better, and I am praying your CT scan is a good one.

Kathy, hope your dad is feeling better.

I'm catching up on my Spark stuff today because I missed yesterday. I did get some muscle relaxers, but they haven't helped a whole lot. My oncologist sent me for x-rays of the c-spine but I haven't heard anything about the results yet. Because of the pain, and the muscle relaxers making me sleepy, I stayed in bed most of the day yesterday, just reading and watching TV. Feeling a little bit better today, but still not able to do a lot.

Our weather isn't going to be good for trick or treating. It's rainy today and it will continue well into the night. It's supposed to get very windy later in the day and a chance of thunderstorms.

Feel a little better this AM...yesterday was really a tough day chemo wise and computer wise. Both my wireless mouse and keyboard failed and I was down until late ...very late yesterday afternoon!! Had chemo then went after equipment that I needed! Next to last day of chemo! I am going to make it and that is what counts!!!!

Hope to be back on a normal schedule over the weekend so I can really “catch” up some things! But will be awaiting results of CT scan all week so I will do my best!

Hope if you enjoy today that you can have a very Happy Halloween! It is fun to greet the kids tonight and enjoy them!

Jean, I will keep you in my prayers.

I had a pretty good day. We went into work early so we could get out early. I had to pick up a quilt and drop off another top off for quilting. My moms Christmas quilt will be done in plenty of time. I am going fabric shopping with a friend this weekend. I am making pillow cases for great nieces and nephews (12) for Christmas. I am hoping to have my Christmas sewing done my Thanksgiving.

Take care.

Good morning!

How is everyone today?

Julie - I hope you had a nice evening

Jean - how are you feeling...are you handling this last chemo you had ok?

Shari - how is your neck doing? How did the chemo go?

Sue - how are you today?

Piggy - how is your sister doing? are you doing ok?

Ida - where are you dear? hope you are doing well.

Well - my day is off to a good start. I got my workout in, but no walk outside - it's raining. So it was walking in place this morning.

Power has went out a couple of times...the rain is that hard! I really need to get a battery back up for my computer so it doesn't go out when the power fluctuates!

Nothing special planned today - just going to try to declutter some more on my living room.

Hope you each have a wonderfully positive day!!!

ps - to any new members out there lurking - please jump in and join the conversation!

Good morning! My best well wishes to those undergoing treatment right now...may it go smoothly.

Yesterday turned sour on us. Daddy had to have a transfusion...really surprised me...I can usually tell when he needs one but this one took everyone by surprise! Today he is feeling awful. I think he way over did it this weekend (went to church twice and to visit a friend in a nursing home as well) Hopefully he will begin to feel better later on today.

As for me - well I have lost a pound two days in a row!!! makes 84 pounds lost! I am hoping to get some decluttering done on my living room today..it's a wreck!!!!!

Happy Tuesday

Good Morning All...Chemo went well yesterday! I was able to use the dexamethasone IV and turn it into 11800 steps! WooHoo! That is equivalent to 5.9 miles! I really like the new tracker because I sure wouldn't have gotten credit for all of this without it! So I can highly recommend it!

Take care all and talk to you in the morning!!!! Have a great day! And stay positive!!!!! I will carry each one of you with me and close in heart!!!!

Not having a good day with the neck pain; it feels like some muscle pain involved too.
When I go to chemo tomorrow, I am going to ask if my oncologist can prescribe a muscle relaxer.

thanks everyone for info on "Chemo brain" and "brain fog"! It helps knowing that this MAY not be permanent...

I have a busy day planned today - Have to take Daddy for his regular Monday morning blood work, then I have to go mail some packages. Then it will be time for my "flylady" tasks (flylady.com) today we are starting in the living room - OH BOY - mine is a disaster area so I think I will have to set my timer for more than 15 minutes!! LOL

Got my workout in this morning...I'm going to have to start varying it a little though - I am getting bored and I'm also not losing right now so I need to do something more.

I remember when my throat was burned from the radiation and I could barely eat or drink anything but I wanted a pepsi. I said something like, " Oh, can you imagine having to drink soda out of a straw?" My kids were like, "huh?" They didn't know if I was serious or not! Of course, I was serious but later realized what I had said and we all had a good laugh with that one!

We have had a fairly quiet weekend. I spent most of yesterday doing laundry and working on the my moms quilt top. I finished it today.

Hubby bought some shelves for the barn but one of them was broken so we took it back and got a replacement today.

I did a 5K walk on the treadmill. .I guess it is going to be the treadmill until spring.

Have a great week ahead.

Take care!

Kat I agree with Sue...(except I call it brain fog!) There are days, especially during 5 days of chemo...that I literally can't stand myself because I don't know why you just don't understand me! This is not easy for all of us (caregivers.patients).

What helps me is when John makes a mental note to "follow-up" later and see what I was trying to tell him!

Thanks Sue...I never know what to "do" with Daddy - one day he is fine and the next he is "weird" we'll get through it somehow.

Got a little more sleep today - well, I slept later but didn't go to bed till after midnight - woke up at 5:30 Got my workout in and then took a nap on the couch...that seems to be my routine now. get up - work out - nap - walk! LOL

Daddy is feeling pretty good this morning so that will make for a nice day

Got some weatherizing done on my house yesterday...need to work on it some more today. We put plastic over some of the windows and hung thermal curtains over the sliding glass door...made a difference instantly!!!

Hope you all have a great day!!!

Hi everyone! Glad to hear that everyone is doing well:)
I haven't been on here much, as I have been trying to adjust to working days again, and it's been really hard!'
Kat, I had chemo brain, and I was very confused about things too. My kids would laugh at some of the weird things I thought at the time. They would go, "oh, that's just Mom's chemo brain talking!" lol
It is funny now, but at the time, it can be very frustrating for others. They just don't know what to say, or if you're serious or not. Unfortunately, I was serious, but didn't realize how silly I sounded.

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

Happy Saturday!!!

I finally get a day off!!! I woke up at 12:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep right away so I went ahead and did my workout –no walking yet…and then went right back to sleep on the couch! I feel ready to face my day now.

For those asking and wondering – Daddy isn’t doing too badly right now…but he is having some memory issues and paranoia issues. I’m wondering if it is a side effect of the chemo as they have scanned his brain several times and say that he shows no signs of Alzheimer’s. I just don’t know – I know it is very frustrating.

My plans today are to get some shopping done. I need some weather stripping and plastic for my windows.

Have a wonderful Saturday

I am off today to a Tea for Breast Cancer at 10 AM this morning. We have a minister of music who will sing several songs today and she is really an uplifting inspiration to me. She donates all of her time that she spends with cancer patients and gatherings like this. I really break down when she does “My Hero”. But then there is nothing more inspirational and positive than the aftermath!!! I am going to enjoy today and prep for the upcoming round of chemo all next week!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Jean, I hope you enjoy that chemo vacation, and sending up prayers that you have a good CT scan.

I know what you mean about a full week in chemo...nothing is more "precious" than the next 2 weeks "vacation"...they just fly by so fast!

Next week is full week for me and then the next Monday is CT scan and find out if it is working!

Finally Friday!

One last chemo day for Daddy for this round…I will be at the hospital with him today…I am going to take my tablet but it is a little difficult to type on so I won’t be answering much while there.

I hope you each have a wonderful Friday!!!!

Good evening! It has been a long but good day. Left the house 4:50 am and just got home at 8:30pm. My day started with my workout and ended with playing music. All I need to make a perfect day is some quilting time, but that isn't going to happen today. I am off to bed.

Take care everyone!

Happy Thursday!!!

Today is another chemo day for Daddy so again I won’t be around as much today.
My new furnace is going great! I’m scared to death to see my first electric bill with it though!
I got my workout finished this morning. Am going to try to do more this afternoon as my weight seems to be stalled again…going to have to kick start it. I think I am drinking to much diet soda lately.
We got snow yesterday evening! First snow of the season here in southern West Virginia. I always like seeing the first snow…then I’m over it! LOL

Hoping you have a wonderful day filled with sunshine!!!

Hi everyone! My computer is acting up so I haven't been on here today until now. It's so frustrating to try and do anything on the computer when it's slow and jumps all around, shuts down whenever it feels like it, and has errors. I hope to get it fixed soon:)

Jean, I am so glad your sodium levels are coming back to normal.

Shari, Good to here things appear to be stable.

I had a pretty good day. We went out for dinner, then came home and did chores. I am planning on working on a quilt binding when I am done here.

I hope everyone has a restful night.

Take care!

Hi everyone, golly things are changing here I see, took a few minutes for me to find my way around on the start page, but I think I like it. I hope you are all doing well. I was reading to try to catch up and glad to hear the optimism and good news that some of you are sharing. It is uplifting. I thank you all for sharing.

As for me and mine, taking dd to get her braces on today, she has the top, today they will put on the bottom ones. We have a snowy/rain mix this morning. Kind of pretty, but with only a high of 40 today, brrrrrrr, don't know that I was ready for this just yet, ha ha.

I am still hanging in there as best I can, more bad days than good, and with surgery not til December 20th the wait seems so far away. So I am trying to keep myself occupied and reading, playing games, and watching movies. Our dog was ill and I continue to nurse her back to health, I don't know when I have had so much compassion for a pet and worried as much as I have with her. She is only 4 yrs. old and had a bowel impaction, so off to the vet and hundreds of dollars in expense we didn't anticipate and she still isn't out of the woods, but they x-rayed and no blockage and 2 enemas to clean her out. She is so sore and the inflammation and swelling will take time to go down and her to return to normal. Luckily we caught it in time before it led to an obstruction and surgery. She is such a dear sweet dog and a wonderful addition to our family.

Well I wish you all the best, and will try to do better keeping in touch. Thank you all for your well wishes and goodies on my page. Love to all.

Here is my latest update on my sodium counts.....

My test Monday shows that high sodium intake and low water intake works! I am back within 5 points of being normal. This is quite a gain since I started at 115 and I am now at 128!

Thanks SP for giving me the tools to do this including reports that I can hand the oncologist so he can monitor! He was impressed to say the least! And t did not cost me more that a $1000.00! (smile)

I am somewhat weak from dehydration...so I am increasing water by 16oz. daily and next Monday we can decide where I need to be based n bloodwork, thereafter! I have been able to keep my BP in the 130's (my normal is 120's) and this has been invaluable and allows me to do high salt intake!

Thank-you for your support and helping me stay so positive!!!!!

Good Morning!
Just doing a flyby this morning.

Today is a chemo day for Daddy so I won’t be on as much today but I will be around.

I already finished my workout this morning and hope to get some more walking in later today.

Hugs to everyone and I hope you have a wonderful day.
