New Year

Dropping off the face of the earth I'm sure is what most of you think has happened to me. Well I am still around, I just haven't really been in the mood to post in a while, I apologize to the ones that keep up with my blog. I will try to get started back with my treatment and progress. I have been home for 7 weeks now, the first month probably was pretty rough with alot of stomach issues and appetite problems. My stomach issues are better but I still don't have an appetite, I get a little hungry but I haven't really found anything that tastes right. I eat but then I get full real fast. My energy level is very low, I move around the house and it just wears me out. Seems like anything I do it takes all my strength. And with the weather we have had lately it keeps you in the gloomy mood. I still have another week and a half still at home before I go back to Little Rock, I am not looking forward to it but if I want to get my treatment over with I have got to get started. I just want my strength and appetite back.

I had written the above paragraph a couple of weeks ago, but I never did post so I will just try to finish it up this morning and post it. Things are going a little better, that always happens when it time to go back, I leave tomorrow (Jan. 20th) for testing Thursday and Friday. I will see the dr. Monday, Jan. 25th, I will probably start my chemo that day or the next. We will just have to wait to see what the doc says. I will probably be in Little Rock 3-4 weeks this time, we will be staying at the same apartment complex as we have been.

I have enjoyed my time at home over the holiday season, even though I haven't felt the best I have tried to get everything in that I could. We had a wonderful Christmas this year, we enjoyed having baby Jonah around. Even though he is not a baby anymore, he just turned 1 yesterday (Jan. 18th) we celebrated his birthday actually on our other baby's birthday. Andrew turned 23 on the 16th, I am glad that I got to be home for these special days.

  1. So glad you posted! I have been thinking about you and praying for you everyday. I am glad you were able to enjoy Christmas at home with your family. Nothing like a little one to brighten the holidays! I think of you often. We are awaiting Jeremy's test results right now. Praying that things go well in Little Rock and that you get to come home soon. Love you and sending hugs your way!
