Hope everyone has a great weekend. It is starting to snow. They say 3-6 inches tonight and tomorrow another 3-7 inches. That means a lot of inside exercising.

Welcome to the weekend!

I had a pretty good day at work. I got most of the data on my desk moved to someone elses.

Looking forward to a fairly quiet weekend. I have my orchestra concert Saturday night and my quartet is playing for a 90th birthday party on Sunday. It will be a weekend full of music.

I also hope to finsh my pillow cases and get landry done tomorrow.

Have a great week end!

Yes, they are Jean.
Neck is still feeling pretty good; no improvement in the hip yet, but the hip pain has been an ongoing issue for such a long time. It's no worse than it was before. We are having some unsettled weather right now and I am sure that is not helping it either.

Thank you all; my neck is feeling so much better! I will probably have to have the series of injections repeated every 6-8 weeks, but it's good to know that they really work.

I finally made it to the doctor to get my port flushed and they had me stay and see the doctor too. I have been hoarse for the past month, so he is sending me to an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor right away. He did my blood work and said it looked good though:)

I can't blame him! There is no better feeling than your first shower after it is removed and you have had the "extra" hardware and worry about keeping it dry! Let him know that I do understand!

Shari, I hope your pain treatments help!

Kathy, great new about your dad!

We have been keeping busy. We ground and packaged over 20 lbs of turkey tonight, so unfortunately I didn't get on the treadmill as we just finished cleaning up and it is about time for bed.

Have great evening!

Kathy and Jean, I left comments on your blogs for you. emoticon

I had my oncologist appointment and chemo yesterday. My oncologist decided to do a test I haven't had before, a special kind of blood test that is supposed to tell how many cancer cells are circulating in the blood. If it comes back ok, he will keep me on my current chemo, and if it's not, he will probably have to change my treatment.

I also had an appointment with my pain specialist. My x-rays and last bone scan turned out to be very helpful to him. My neck pain is a combination of arthritis and some enlarged facet joints. He gave me some injections in that area and today it's already feeling better.

He also noticed on the bone scan an area of inflammation in my hip joint that wasn't showing up on my previous scans. I can't remember exactly how he explained it, but it was something to do with the bone not healing properly after the cancer ate away at some of it. Anyway, now that he could see the area on the scan, it really helped him to know exactly where to do an injection in that area. It might be a few days before I feel the pain relief from that. Since I just had my chemo yesterday, that causes some joint pain for a few days, so once that wears off, hopefully I will feel the injection starting to work.


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.

The results of the CT scan are in:

Update:

GOOD NEWS:

The Dr is going to try a different chemo drug...Beginning next Tuesday I will do Taxotere followed by Neulasta on Wednesday. Taxotere is a very strong treatment expected to take me down so I will have one round and then CT scan 11/26 and what happens next will be determined. I will get to cook for my family on Thanksgiving! (At least John will and I will do what I can!!!) If this regime works it will be 1 treatment followed by “belly” shot next day every 3 weeks as long as it works and I can handle it!

It will be my decision how long to keep trying! There are also other treatments out there to try and slow these cells down if this doesn't work! So I advised him that I was not ready to give up or give in!!!! John agreed!

I also got my new glasses yesterday! It was getting very hard to work on the computer and I really like them...just call me Sophie Loren (not Sophia)!

BAD NEWS:

The “C” is rapidly spreading and cells have really grown in size also. It is now in my adrenal glands, my liver, both lungs, and lymph nodes, spine, pelvis and arms and legs! (I think that I have just described my whole body). The Dr. gave me pain pills which I did not even know I needed!

Now that we know what I am facing! I had my pity party yesterday...and low and behold I actually slept 9 straight hours last night and feel the best I have felt this AM in a long long time!

Getting ready to leave for Daddy's appointment to find out what his CT said - if you are the praying type - I would really appreciate prayers right now for a good report - if you're not the praying kind then good thoughts would be appreciated too!!!

I had a busy day. It started with my workout then on to work. Then we picked up our new freezer and got it on to the porch and set up.

Not to much else going on.

Take care!

For the first time in 18 months there is no plan! I don't know what is going to happen after today so I don't even know if there is another plan...I just know that I have an uneasiness that I have not known before....that seems to grow moment by moment... so today is for me to try to get ready for the unknown whether it is what I want to hear or what I only dreamed about! I will see my Oncologist at 10 AM for lab and then meet with him to find out!

So as I pack up my inspiration to carry with me today, I ask that you carry me close in heart or in your prayers....please believe me when I say that I know well that each of you do! I wouldn't trade my time with you for anything, it is that treasured!

I will try to update my team message boards when I get home but I cannot make promises right now (don't mean to be negative just honest).

I also see my pain specialist; hoping to get some answers about what is causing my neck pain and hopefully, some ideas on how to treat it. I have chemo tomorrow too, so I might not have a chance to get online and get on Spark.

Ida, I hope your test went well.

Kathy, sending up prayers that you dad will have good results from the CT scan.

Julie - be careful of that ram!

Ida - how did the test go?

Sue - I've got faith in you that you will "get it" with your new job - hang in there!

Jean - I will keep you in my thoughts (good ones) for your doctor appt tomorrow

Debra - I am thankful that your family served - that is awesome! My Uncle served and my husbands Grandfather served.

Shari - I'm glad you got to go to church - my Daddy misses that so much. I'm sorry you were so tired.

Daddy's blood work came back good today - now we have to wait till Wednesday to get the results of his CT scan from last week. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers that the cancer has shrunk or at least has not spread.

Sorry I was so late with the daily devotional today - I had my own doctor appt at 2 pm (routine) and forgot all about it!!!!!

hugs to all

I did over 100 invoices yesterday! I took 4 pages of notes, and 1 page of questions that i need to ask my brother. I really enjoyed it and I will get paid for what I did yesterday. I feel really good about it, I hope I did them right:)

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!

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

I've had a nice day. One more day of sewing and I should have the pillow cases completed.

We moved Ace our, ram in with the ewes today. He was a bit of a handful getting the marking harness on then getting him moved. I was trying to open the gate to let him into the area between the pastures when he butted me through the gate and hit me in the thigh so I am a bit sore. We set the barn up so we can feed sheep without going into the pen because of Ace. We will need to go in to feed turkeys for a few more days. Ace is really sweet as long as there is a fence between you, but I do not trust him.

I hope everyone had a great week!

Sue, wishing you all the best for the new job tomorrow!

Ida, hope your test goes well.

I had kind of a lazy day too, but it wasn't planned that way. I went to church this morning, and I just felt exhausted for some reason after I got home. It took me a few hours, but I finally motivated myself to get my workout done today. Haven't done much else though.

I have to be at work at 10pm tonight, but it should be the last night-ever! Unless they really need me of course:)

Hello everyone! Glad to hear that everyone is doing better! I am excited to start my new job:) I talked to my boss and asked if he could not schedule me for the next 2 weeks unless it is necessary, and he agreed! He also congratulated me and wished me well. so I was able to give a 2 week notice, but not work during the 2 weeks, so I can start my new job on Monday:)
I am so happy! Just in time for Christmas too!
I will have a regular paycheck and work hours, and no weekends and holidays! I will be able to live comfortably, without having to save on the good months to make it through the bad months,all the months will be the same, money wise:)

Got a full day of store visiting planned today. Also our friend is supposed to come and get our old oil furnace today and start transporting the oil to his house...we have traded it to him for him to weld a roll bar into James' race car!

Hope you each have a wonderful pain free day today!!!!

Debra, hope your migraine is gone soon. When I have a bad one, it almost feels like I have a "hangover" from it the next day.

Ida, glad you are feeling better now.

Shari, I hope you get some answers for your neck pain soon

Sue, congrats on the new job. I am sure you will be able to handle it.

I had a ling day yesterday so by the time I got home I just wanted to get things around and go to bed.

Trainer had to cancel our appointment this morning. I am going to get on the treadmill after I do the chores.

I have the afternoon off and am heading to my sewing room to cut out pillow cases, so I can sew on them tomorrow at Ladys Day Away.

Have a great Friday afternoon.

Julie
