sure wish i was still at Vibes!!! :tongue1:

thank you sooooooo much Boardies!!!! :whorship: i bow to you all, you are simply stupendous. :heart:

felt great through Vibes for the most part, with a little eventual help from percocets. the biking made me super tired, but eventually i found that if i didn't try to tear around on it like i had done in years past, and just rode it more slowly, that i did much better for much longer. so there's my lesson learned. :tongue1: you wouldn't think it would be so hard to figure this stuff out! :lol: as it had been, my knees would start out pretty good in the morning but be ouchy by nighttime. shouldn't have waited till friday to do something about it but still, i did well. :) i got to wear one of my sparkly dresses and one of the wigs on saturday, which was fun. little hot on the field, but fun. :) if i found myself yawning, i tried to rest and i also ate well. only lost 2 or 3 lbs. :thup:

got home monday afternoon and had my 'dry run' for radiation yesterday. they were late calling me in but it went quickly. the nurse's visit took a lot longer afterwards but i had to leave for another appt so we can finish today if need be.

because today is round #1 of radiation, at 10:30 this morning.

don't want!! :thdown: (well, you know what i mean....)

i will think of you all while i'm there and know that you are on my side though, and that will help. :heart: i love you all. :heart:

you guys rock. :) :heart:

it went okay this morning, was there for only a 1/2 hour or so. i felt like my skin warmed up underneath the thing they put on me, but i'm not sure. i put the stuff on afterwards anyways, might as well start right away.


sadly, Cassady took a turn for the worse while i was gone and i just spoke with the vet. he's going to put up an appetite stimulant pill for her but there is really nothing we can do, because it's the fip disease just progressing, as it was going to do no matter what.

she is happy i am home again and i shut everyone out of the bedroom for the overnight last night which i think she appreciated. she is not in pain. i don't know for how long - or if - this pill will work and i think i am down to days or even a week or so perhaps. i will feel badly if my sister comes home this weekend and feels like she needs to help me deal with this next week though.

i did notice Cassady was drinking a lot of water before i left. not more often, just a lot at a time. didn't think toooo much about it at the time, possibly denial, in hindsight..... and she will eat, she just won't go out of her way to eat, if that makes any sense. i bought her a chicken at the supermarket last night and she perks right up for that. she also ate some canned food and some of the dry food with a little warm water added today. but she has no energy and doesn't feel 'good' i think... :undecided:

crap. :cry:

awww, thanks. i'm soooo happy everything worked out and that i could go. i think i rocked it. :lol:

my plant is healthy and happy too, thank you for it. :)

Cassady is doing okay, she looooves to snuggle and loves having the door closed at night so that it's just the two of us. she cuddles all night long or jumps up in the window above my head and hangs out there. Diamond is very jealous of her and doesn't let her do these things so i think it's important that she gets to do so right now.

i haven't given her the appetite pill yet, she is eating the food i give her, seems to have a bit more energy and is jumping up on the bed and to the window with no trouble and is no longer spending a lot of time in the closet. still skinny but doing okay. i still think i'm counting, but maybe i'll get to count up to some double digits after all.....

#3 today. my armpit stings already. that isn't good. *sigh* oh welllll, it is what it is, is it not? need to get some of my aloe plant harvested today. :thup:

thanks all. :) :heart: 4 down 29 to go. some stinging still, that's it. they're weird. too many radiation waves floatingn around over there maybe :dunno:

there are 3 radiologists, all on equal footing as far as handling my case, and i will see i'm told that all 3 of them in short order.

my initial visit was with dr hellman and he told me the only thing i can put on the skin is 100% aloe. i didn't ask about aloe, that's what he said and i made sure i understood all that he said, not just that

last week the nurse gives me aquaphor samples, and tells me i should use that once a day and that i can use vaseline or any other petroleum based product, sunscreen, or aloe.

today the nurse says "you're using the aquaphor once a day, right?" as she hands me 5 more sample tubes. then dr dolinsky comes in and says i shouldn't be putting anything on until after the skin has a visible reaction to the radiation.

gah. :tapfoot:

love youuu!!! :heart:

but you all make me smile. :) :heart: :)

my sister's in town with all the kids and the husband, they are staying with my dad though, not at my house. i don't have the room - OR the energy - to deal with the whole family! :funny1:

oh my nancy that would drive me nuts. is there some sort of support group or something you can join, not just for mental support, but for times like this when you just want a straight answer you can trust? just a thought, also i realize i havent read the thread so you might already be a part of something like this.

good luck! think of you often!
