Just Waiting

On Friday, I received my last dose of the chemo drug. While I haven't had any nausea, this drug has made me extremely tired. So much so I sleep a lot and my vision is very blurry. It's been hard to type to update, so this may be all you get for now. The doctor expects me to be admitted for neutropenic watch on Monday, and that could last 3 to 4 weeks.

My hospital support system took a hard hit this week when my Mom fell and broke her coxy bone. She had been traveling to stay with me in the hospital and now is resting her own injury. She is currently in the hospital at St. Agnes in Fresno and in a lot of pain. Please say some extra prayers for my Mom.

I'm taking lots of projects for the hospital and hope that things like Fantasy Baseball and the NCAA tournament keep me occupied. I'll update when we are admitted. Thanks again for the continued thoughts and prayers!

You are so amazing.

I wish on a normal day for ME, that I had the strength you have.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom's accident. Ouch, the coccyx is a bad spot to break. I hope the side effects ease up. It's so good you aren't feeling pukey. I miss ya!

Okay, so I'm into multi-generational prayer. Ouch! Mama!

No kicking theme for her. More like pillow-it-to-the-end.

I am very encouraged that your kicking treatment is progressing.
