Feeling strong

I am surprised by how all of sudden my strength returns. Where only a week ago I could only swim 7 laps in the pool, I’m now swimming 30 and the only reason I stopped was because I had too many other errands to do. It seems that with each AC cycle the down days… Read More »

An awesome package – What you’ve done with your hair

I received an awesome care package yesterday (thanks Jen). The awesomeness began with the card, which is theme for this mostly picture post. Receiving energy from the ancient tree while out on a short walk. Trying to capture just how big the tree at our campsite was. And giving it a morning hug!    

A perfect morning

It’s 8 am, infants are crying, jays are squawking, there is a fine mist as the park is covered in morning fog from the ocean. It is a perfect morning at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Scott has actually fallen back to sleep. This is my time, first thing in the morning. I crawl out… Read More »

Bone-pain – a mixed blessing

I wondered if the reason I wasn’t feeling it was because I had successfully managed the side effects (although that doesn’t describe the lack of fatigue) or was it that the Neulasta shot that came via… Read More »

2nd Round of Chemo

Today was my second round of chemo. It was actually much less traumatic than I expected it to be. It really helped that someone in the BC Connections Facebook group commented that her second round went a lot better than the first – so rather than hearing horror stories about the second round, I am… Read More »

In for an emotional day (maybe)

I’m happy to report that the worst of the bone pains has passed. Once the nurse called me back, she looked into it, and advised that I could take an NSAID (like ibuprofen) for the pain. I have stronger NSAID for my arthritis, so I took one of them and within 30 minutes the pain… Read More »
