so nancy, have you decided if you want scarves or hats?
just wondering...i saw some really cute ones the other day and wondered if you are getting peppered with them or not...
they were really light and good for summer, and i thought of you :smile:

are you still doing the no sugar thing?
does that include fresh fruit?

just wondering...

hope you are well
glad you have people nearby who drop in and help you out :heart:

i :heart: acupuncture! :) felt good all day today. but, Cassady is not well. i'm trying not to stress, what will be will be, doing my best, blah blah blah, but. well.... you guys know how it is. and i just do NOT need this right now!!!! but i'm trying not to stress, what will be will be, doing my best, blah blah blah, but. i took her in to the vet tonight and they took blood and some results will be back tomorrow and the rest not until friday. i've got her in my bedroom by herself, for the next few days i guess. we'll see what happens in the litter box. other than that PT went well today, will be going once a week, and i had a nice lunch with my dad. thanks for all the good vibes, they help! :) :heart: :) i have a few scarves and Angel just sent me some gorgeous ones so i've been trying to figure out a hat or two. it couldn't be at all scratchy on the inside i know, but i don't want to wear a cartman hat either! :)

Cassady seems to be peeing okay but so did Zevon at first so we'll see..... dropped her urine sample off this morning, went out to breakfast, and then went to the hospital for my mid-round checkup. my bloodwook :funny1: is not bad! :D my white cell count is as low as they'd ever want it to be on a treatment day but since it's mid treatment, it's really pretty darned acceptable right now. my anc count - that counts one particular type of white cell - is below normal where if it were treatment day they'd have to delay but since i'm at my expected low point they think that it's pretty good, too. so overall and considering, it was all pretty good news. :thup: oh, and even though i feel like i've been stuffing my face all the time, i didn't lose or gain a single pound - yay me. :)

there's a couple of ways, actually. :lol: :lol:

with Tigger i could just slide something underneath her as she was getting ready to pee and she'd pee in whatever that was - a shallow lid to something for example. with Cassady i used the small litter box that she knows from when i'm scrubbing down the big one, and put just a tiny bit, like a tablespoon, of litter in it. when she peed last night most of it was absorbed by the litter - good shot! - but this morning there was liquid i could pour into an old pill bottle.

Good luck, Wonder Nancy! If your concern is aesthetic, there are acupuncture seeds that look like tiny band-aids that EJ can put on that spot for you. I hope all good news for you and Cassady, going forward. Glad all seems to be going as well as it can. ((Yay!)) <3

When my Dad's bwhite blood cell count gets low during chemo, they give him a shot (it's happened 2 times so far) and the following week his count is through the roof :bigsmile: !

neulasta? i get that the day after every treatment. i haven't asked specifically, what they would do if my count was 1000 on the off-week, so there could very well be another droog or maybe i'd get that again. hmmm, not sure.....

thank you foo. i appreciate it and take it to heart. :) :heart:

i'm doing fine w/out the bracelets now Nikki. i know when i don't need them because i can also tell when they are working - i get head rushes, of various intensities. without the bracelets those head rushes would correspond with the intensity of the wave of nausea including most likely, the rather unpleasant activity associated with same. :crook:

but i'm definitely enjoying feeling good these last few, and next couple of, days. i know they are precious now, acupuncture or no acupuncture! :thup: :)

'the association of sauerkraut and lower rates of breast cancer among polish immigrants', huh? :undecided:

because it couldn't have been the turkey kielbasa, could it. :plain:
