Poked and Prodded


I'm starting to feel like that poor little dough boy!! Poked and prodded some more today.  Results on Monday.  Blood is still too thin. PT/INR   Click here: Prothrombin time - is 5.  I'm off the Coumadin (temporarily), which scares me since I am prone to clots in my lungs. Any bleeding right now, sends me to the emergency room per the docs.  Oh joy!

Someone is setting off fireworks.  It's been going on for at least the last hour.  I'd love to know what the occassion is.  What am I thinking?? This is the South.  There probably isn't an occassion!  Ha ha.  :)

Picked up Chinese for dinner.  It was good going down.... that's all I'll say about that.

For anyone reading that has ever had radiation therapy/treatment--tell me about it, please.  Anything and everything.  You can leave it in my comments or email me directly.

Tucking in early tonight.  I didn't sleep restfully last night.

I love y'all.

My dad recently got through with a long series of radiation treatments for prostate cancer...he had some fatigue and gastro "issues", but was generally upbeat and keen on beating it.  He also has a tiny blue dot tattoo as a result!

How long are you off coumadin for? With an INR of 5 it shouldn't be more than a day or two. I wouldn't be too worried about 5 - I start to panic at anything over 8.

I finally figured out this AOL business to respond.  Dear friend, my heart and thoughts are with you always.  You are in my prayers daily.  Please keep my son Robert in your prayers that he will soon see clearly all the gifts life has granted.  Thank you from my heart.  My best to your folks, sister neices and brother-in-law.  I love you Princess!  Sunnie

I hope you do okay being off the Coumadin.  Please take care!
(We get fireworks set off here now and again, too.  My dogs hate it!)

I remember Chinese food... I lapsed a little last summer and had some, dosed up on some insulin for it. The restaurant burned down last fall and I was thankfully glad the temptation was removed.

I'm just glad I can still enjoy fireworks even if I can't eat them. I think I was born with to many taste buds.

Kinda have to drop the interest in food from my life and stick to people, music, books, dvd's and dreams.

Have good dreams, they're the best.
