Decisions

I'm really trying to be better about phone calls.  I'm certain some of you will verify that, right???!

I saw my oncologist on Thursday.  Instead of detailing the appointment, I'll simply tell you I've decided I'm going to do radiation. There are a few issues that have to be taken care of first.  BUT, I'm ready for him to zap me.  I think.  :)

             

I'm having quite a tough time with food and pain.  It's routine now, when Mom hears me getting sick--peppermint tea and toast.  This morning I was so drugged when she finally came in with the tea, I fell asleep with the mug in my hand.  Yea, I know...not so safe or smart!

Big birthday wishes to my Dad and cousin, Marsha.  We celebrated with Dad's favorite.  Hamburgers!  For dessert?!  An ice cream cake with dark chocolate (compliments of Dove), whipped cream and cherries.  Ohhh and let me not forget, the singing candle!  Can't go wrong with that, right??

I'm tucking in now.  I love y'all.

 

Please say prayers for: Dawn Brown*Sherry and family*Chris Read *Nathan *Cassie and family*Ms Dawn *Cathy's dad, Bill and her mom, Pam*Lisa and her family *Ms Bobby * Mr. Russo*Ms Pammy *Cindy*Tammy*Momma Joyce*MsMargie*Krissy's husband,John*Trish*Sugar*Mr. Carey and his wife, Irene*Jay Carey and his family.*Frances and her son, Matthew.

Radiation isn't that bad. It takes about 5 minutes and your done! It takes longer to get dressed into your cute little gown than it does for treatment! I hope it goes well for you. Hope your tummy problems go away. I read a previous entry about your peanut butter toast and never commented but one thing I could always keep down was peanut butter and jelly on toast. My husband had it ready for me all the time! He got really good at putting just the right amount of jelly on too! lol Happy Birthday to your dad and Marsha. Hope you felt good enough to eat some of that cake. It sounds so good! Have a good night and take care.

Tea is a universal treatment. I used to melt old Christmas candycanes in mine to sweeten them. That is a good moment though, just about to fall asleep and to sleepy to put the mug down, like waking up and having to be somewhere, That moment is when I am sleepiest. When I have trouble getting to sleep I think about sleepy moments and remember waking and the morning. I should try thinking about pepermint tea.
