A word to the wise ain't necessary..'s the stupid ones that need the advice. - Bill Cosby

I had a really great Thanksgiving weekend. The turkey was amazing! I feasted all weekend. 

I had my blood work done yesterday and it was all really good. My 'hemogoblin' level was on the lower side but it wasn't low enough for me to have a transfusion. I started Phase 3 last night with oral chemo and next Monday I will get admitted for at least 4 days. If the drug isn't flushing through my system well enough, I might have to stay longer. It's meal planning time.. :)
My hair is growing back slowly but surely. Everyone in my family is calling me a 'gosling'. The next drug that I will be getting is going to be quite a high dose so it might fall out again. Rachel says that it is now long enough for me to have hat hair again. :P Betty-Ann's favorite line when talking to me is: "Just cause you have cancer doesn't mean....(fill in the blank)." :)
My cold has been getting a bit worse over the last few days which is not very good. I wouldn't like to be admitted for getting sick.
I've been playing the piano again. My fingers are still a little numb from the prednisone. That was the drug that made my cheeks balloon up..and now FINALLY after a couple months my cheeks are deflating. :)

I'm having a party on Friday with some girlfriends. It's a phase 3 sendoff. For the next 2 months I will be gone every other Sunday. :'(  It's time to go back to the grindstone.


  1. Seriously girl, where do you get these crazy quotes?
    I'm sure you're a very cute (albeit deflating) gosling. :D

  2. I guess the lesson here is "just because you have cancer" doesn't mean you're exempt from familial teasing and chore rotations! :) Keep the updates coming so the prayers stay on target, sweet girl. There's a lot of people backing you up.

  3. Dear Rebecca ~ Hang in there! I can just hear Betty-Ann saying that too! :) We are praying for you.
