Much Needed Update

I know a lot of people check my blog for updates on my health issues and I haven't done that lately. I just had my third chemo treatment Friday. It has really left me with a lot of fatigue this time. I slept most of today away. I usually push myself more to stay up but today was not one of those days. The last chemo treatment also left me with a lot of fatigue and mouth sores. That was not fun either. At least the mouth sores are gone and that feels so much better. I did have a good week despite the fact of mouth sores and fatigue. My Tuesday night class ladies came over Tuesday night with snacks in tow along with stuff to work on themselves. We had a great time and it was so much fun to see them all together. We all miss our times together. Wednesday my friend Pam and I went and got a pedicure and out to lunch. It was nice...she drove me around and we got some pampering done to us and we also did some bead shopping for our Troll bracelets. Thursday I had a dr. appt. with my liver dr. My friend Ginger and I go to the same liver dr. so we make our appts. at the same time and go together. We went out to lunch after the dr. appt. and then walked through the new Ikea store they have built close to us. I had a long nap after that excursion. Friday was chemo which my sister took me to and then we went out to lunch. As you can see...I do eat. Sometimes not too much but I do tend to get out with friends and not to mention my family too. Tomorrow being Memorial Day.....we don't have plans as we didn't know how I will feel. If the fatigue is like today I will be laying around and I'm sure my DH won't mind a bit.
In between all of this I am trying to work on things for Seminar. I can't believe how close it is approaching us. I can't wait to see all of my TAC Angel friends and meet some new ones also.
I hope to post more this week but if not....I will be around when I can. I am in great spirits and this Cancer Crap won't get me down.
