Long Week

Well sorry I have been out of commission this past week. I had a very hard time after my third treatment. I don't know why this one was different but it made me so weak. I had days where I just had no energy to get off the sofa. I felt like I was sinking into the sofa. It was not a good feeling. I really hope I don't feel like that again. I felt so bad that I didn't even go to the Easter Egg Drop on Saturday. If you know me, you know that I would not miss a picture opportunity! So I was defnitely feeling bad! I hope Nannie took pictures :) Yesterday I did venture out for Easter. I felt a little better but it was a very draining day. It was good to get out and see everyone after having such a rough week. And of course I took lots of pictures of Jackson :) I woke up today and I feel much better. Thank goodness. I still feel a little weak but nothing like I felt last week. I had my third physical therapy and I can already tell a difference in my right arm....Glenda you need to join me in physical therapy.....might as well....we have everything else close to the same ;)......You know you want to....just add that one more doctor to the list like me. The physical therapists have been great...I wish I could say that the deep tissue massage the do on my right arm is enjoyable but it is not a fun massage. I have two cords that have tightened up under my arm and they are loosening them up. Yeah I know it is as fun as it sounds. But it does work. I can now straigten my right arm and I think I am down to one cord being the problem. And it is farther up my arm now instead of at the bend of my arm. Not sure if any of this make sense....I feel like I have chemo brain these days...yes it is a real thing. I think I might have given it to Billy too! hahaha

Well I am not really digging this hat thing.....I am already tired of wearing I even ventured into the Georgia baseball cap.......I don't see how people wear baseball caps all the time. The bill is driving me crazy! Billy and the physical therapist said it looked cute. I tried to wear my wig Sunday and gave up on it looking right....I was also sweating so I just decided to go with a hat again....I am not the hat girl! Jackson even drew a picture the other day of me...and Mrs. Walker said at the end he say "OH I have to draw mommy's hat!"....Maybe I will play around with the wig again......

Well I have just rambled today ...not much to say except I was feel very bad last week and am finally feeling like myself again.....please keep the prayers coming for me and Glenda....WE still have 5 more treatments to go.

Oh yeah...and Billy has pulled his back out.......just adding to the fun times!


  1. I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better than you were on Friday !! We missed you at El Charro....but don't worry we are doing it again May 20th !!! :) :)
    I understand about the hats...I am NOT a hat girl AT ALL, but I am sure YOU look adorable in them!!!! :) Miss you.....xoxoxoxoxo

  2. Hopefully I can make that date then! I feel like that might be Morgan County's relay but maybe I can come there and then go. You are sweet...

  3. I'm loving the hats.... Guess I'm the hat girl then... Lol the wig has been hot but I guess I should try it again And see,.

  4. And yes chemo brain lives. I feel like I'm a zombie sometime and feel foggy in the head. AND have conversations and don't gave a clue what I just talked about. Lol guess those are blonde moments for some people

  5. know I always love a hat! Maybe you will get used to them. I saw the pic that Jackson drew...and had on a hat...but the EARS on was funny! He made them huge...made me laugh!
    I am so glad you are feeling is a whirlwind at know the end of the year! If you feel like it...come have lunch...we miss you!
