Friday, 12/12/07 Doctor Appointment

Today was basically a follow-up appointment to review Lab Results and discuss future treatment.  I saw “Jan” the Nurse Practitioner.  She did my last bone marrow biopsy, which was performed on 9/21/07.  If a bone marrow biopsy can be somewhat not as painful without being drugged up, Jan can do it.  Either that or I …

Day After Christmas~~awwww

This Holiday Season has actual been somewhat peaceful, I guess because I haven’t had any expectations whatsoever – either me of anyone else and vice versa.  I suppose it would be better the other way around; it would mean I was experiencing life rather than just existing.  That is what I’m doing, I fear: existing …

Late November/Early December Entry Not Published

I made it to the X-ray place yesterday then stopped by Walmart on my way home to pick up pet food. I had other errands in the vicinity I wanted to do, but I was just too tired. I nodded off at the wheel a few times on the way home! I’ve not done that …

This Body is Beat!

Sorry it’s been so long since I made an entry ~ or shall I say “blogged”? I’ve just been so very tired and was down with a URI for nearly the entire week. I’m talking in bed, 24/7. I had my doctor call in medicine (Z-pac) to a local pharmacy here in town so I …

11/14/07, Wednesday, KU Transplant Clinic

Today I was scheduled for Lab at 10:30am, M.D. at 11:05am, and Aredia Treatment at 11:45am. I was 30 minutes late (eeek! no good excuse…just tough to get up and around and I do live 50 minutes away–but no excuse….dang). Anyway, once I arrived they told me that Julie left directions for me to just …

Boy have I been tired or under the weather. I got the nasty migraine thing Monday and I also had a Migraine last week. They hit me pretty tough these days; if I even move I feel like I’m going to vomit. I called son Adam and left a message for him if he could …

Revlimid Side Effects Maybe?

I stopped taking the Revlid Saturday, which was Cycle 16, Day 10. My next doctor appointment is next Monday, November 12th. The discomfort became too unbearable and I think it is Revlimid side effects. I’ve had that what they call “cancer fatigue” since I was diagnosed. You are so tired and often get to where …

Fatigue is still my biggest battle with a close contender of bone pain. I haven’t noticed much relief since stopping steroids a few weeks ago, but maybe that’s only because there were some benefits with steroids ~ like they disguise pain. I think I may just be going through an adjustment time. When I’m tired, …

Yesterday was my monthly Aredia treatment, two hours through IV. This is for my bones, strengthening them and also helps with pain supposedly. The BMT was running late, so it was a long day. I napped, as usual, during treatment. I always bring a bag full of books to read and I rarely read, instead …
