After Thanksgiving......

My daughter and I made a great Thanksgiving lunch. She was such a great helper. We made a turkey, home made dressing, home made chocolate pies (2), devil eggs and potatoes salad. I enjoyed cooking. I spaced it out so I could sit and rest. I got hot and we opened up a window. I did get dizzy once. But over all it was great.
We had a great day. Jeff and our son cut and split wood while we cooked. 
I am so thankful for my husband, our daughter, our son, my friends, and my family. I am so thankful that I am getting my cancer treated and I am still moving forward with my treatments. I am thankful that I did well with chemo. I am so thankful for all the love and support everyone has given to me, cause I never knew so many people cared about me. 
I am so thankful for my husband who has done a great job of being here for me. It has been hard but we are making in through the hard times. Our love prevails through all things.

LAST CHEMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well that's it. I am done with chemo.I dose a little then once home I ate. I finally took a 1-2 hour nap. I went to bed around 9:30pm but couldn't sleep because belly was hurting. I finally did go to sleep about11. Then by 1am I was awake. Bladder was full. Then hot slashes, heart burn and belly hurting until about 5am. Then at 6am got up and got dressed. So not much sleep last night.

Today is shot day. Last one of those too.
Next step is Herceptin on Dec 16th then every three weeks. They said they would give me benydrel do to side effects.

Still have watery eyes, dry skin, hands peeling, finger tips sore, hands swell some, hot flashes and night sweats. Other than that things are good.

Just ready to go back to work cause I am bored and I broke my sewing machine. So now I can make nothing else. I had great plans for it too. I made a vest and purse. I was going to make other cool things but now that is on hold. I may try to sew by hand but finger tips may not let me do much.

I can do plastic canvas and maybe some knitting but have to do it in small intervals.

Well hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
I am going to try to cook a lunch then go to his sister in laws' for supper. I hope I am up for it.
