Chemo, Chemo, Chemo….
This time has not been nearly as bad as the last two. I feel very tired and fatigued, (not sleepy tired… just heavy tired) but am not nauseous at all. I decided to not take my constipation medication, and go the natural route (Prunes, Prune Juice, anything related to Prunes… did I mention Prunes?) and my body feels OH SO MUCH BETTER. I think that was adding to the problem. It wasn’t the whole problem but it certainly didn’t help matters. I am also sleeping through the night, which was a major problem the last two times. I go to bed at around 8:30 and am up by 6, very well rested. I know from experience that I will feel the effects of chemo later this week, but it is really promising that I don’t feel nearly as bad this time around at the beginning.
Some of you have asked about my Mothering Through Cancer support group. I changed to start date, it is starting next Tuesday, the 20th of Nov. I didn’t think that I had enough time to properly advertise it,
And…… The Hannah Montana concert is Monday Night, November 19th (my anniversary) in Tampa and LIKE HOLY COW MY DAUGHTER IS LIKE SO EXCITED BECAUSE YA KNOW IT IS LIKE HANNAH MONTANA AND SHE IS LIKE SO AWESOME (insert hair flip).
When I went to the newcomers meeting at the Wellness Community, I met two young moms who were extremely interested… so next Tuesday it is! (did I mention the concert? did I mention how VERY EXCITED EASTON IS!) That also gives us time to put it in Mommy Magazine (a local magazine) for December. They’ve mentioned doing an article on me (The Wellness Community thru Mommy Mag) but that hasn’t been confirmed as of yet…
The conference… It was really really good! I laughed and cried, almost all the time. When Nicole C. Mullen got up to sing “Touch” I bawled like a baby. I didn’t feel like the speakers had enough time to completely get in the Word, but that is okay. Patsy Clairmont is H.I.L.L.A.R.I.O.U.S., I highly recommend that you buy every single one of her books. It was a very very refreshing weekend!
Speaking of books. I’m going to seriously sit down and look at things. I feel like now is the right time to begin seeking opinions and editors… I am joining ACFW and am going to start actively researching what needs to be done. I am not sure what story will come first, Mine or Emma’s, or if they will be intertwined together. What do you think?
Moving on to my new Theme. Some of you have written in the comments and contacted me personally saying that you love my new design but that it overlaps (post begins under the sidebars) When I emailed you back, I found a common problem(with the help of Laura). You are using IE 6 or lower. I highly encourage you to upgrade your IE or to switch to Firefox. Firefox is my browser of choice, and I highly recommend it. My theme looks fine on my IE 7 (and Firefox) & it should on yours too once you update your browser. I have links in my left sidebar for your convenience.
Buttons. Look to the right. Many of you have requested directions on how to place my button on your site. I (again, with the help of Laura) put the code in a document that you can download from my sidebar. Thank you, those of you, who have the button on your site already, it really means alot to me to go to your blogs and see my bald head
Prayer Requests. Pray that I will feel this good come Friday :)Pray that the chemo does what it is suppose to do and only what it is suppose to do.
Pray for Amy Wilhoite’s husband, Brandon. Two months have passed since her death and he is struggling.
Pray for my friend Layne Daniel who is battling a brain tumor (GBM) and is traveling to Cancer Treatment Center Of America in Philadelphia.
Pray for my friend Don who has cancer and is not doing so well.
Pray for my Mothering Through Cancer support group, that Gods hands would be all over it and that he would use it mighty mighty ways.
I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I’m thankful that you support me and that you honestly truthfully are invested in my family. I am thankful that I can bring my prayer request to you and I know that they will be prayed over.
