Count Down

Time has really flown by, the wedding is this weekend. Kara and Andrew will be married this time next week. Things are coming together and final preparations are being made. It's getting very, very close now. I have my list of things to do this week each day, I have to write it down so I won't forget. Call it age or chemo, whatever. This week sounds a little rainy and stormy, we just hope that for Saturday night it will hold off so that everyone can get inside without getting drenched.

As for me, things are going pretty good, I have had alot of new pains that I haven't had before so you ask yourself is it the new medication? I started with the new drug for my bones and they said there could be side effects and bone pain was one of them so who knows. To help with one issue you have to be in pain for another. Never ending.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter!!!!!

Spring Has Sprung

Well it seems like Spring is actually here, the weather has been really nice lately. I am so ready, now if the wind will just calm down a little things will be much better, I guess we can't complain though but we would like to have some rain. Since my last post I think I am finally on the mends, this upper respiratory infection has hung on forever, I still have a little cough but nothing like I had before.

I had a wonderful birthday, one thing about being sick on my birthday it was spaced out over probably a two week period, so it lasted a long time. Our plan was to go out to eat on the Saturday after my birthday, trying to get 8 people together sometimes can be difficult. I really didn't feel like going out to eat so they ordered Catfish Hole and brought it to the house. Everyone enjoyed it, and there was also a cookie dough ice cream cake that was yummy. Then there were gifts, I always like that part, I'm still a kid at heart.

The wedding is getting really close now, all last minute things are being tended to and things are being finalized. It's getting to the excitement stage now, only 16 days to go and there will be another Kara Woody in the family.

I am at Highland taking my treatment right now, we have added something new to my treatment, it is a bone strengthening drug that I will take every two months. Hopefully this will help, it is given to Multiple Myeloma patients. This is given with my fluid through my port, infused over a three hour period. There are some side effects with this drug but hopefully they will be mild. There could be flu like symptoms the next day or two and a few other things I will have to watch for, we will just have to see how it goes.

Have a great weekend, get out and enjoy this beautiful weather.
