Okay, I've been away from the blog for a while. I don't really have a good excuse. I could make something up, but I just don't want to. I'm not that creative anyway.
Sure, part of the time I had an excuse. Chemo knocked me on my butt fast this time, and I didn't recover as fast as I think I should. Maybe my body is just tired. It could've been because I had just returned from Rhode Island, and I was just tired.
All I know is that I've missed you guys!
I don't really have anything important to say.
I am doing well. (Now.)
I only have one more chemo treatment!! YEAH!!
It seems some of the side effects are just now starting which is kind of surprising me. My eyes started watering all the time. At first I thought it was my allergies, so I took allergy medicine and it didn't help. When I finally saw my doctor, he told me that it could be a side effect of the chemo. Great! I look like I am crying all. the. time. The skin under my eyes is red and almost raw from me wiping the tears away all the time. Nice.
We have decided that we will not be doing Christmas photos this year. At first I thought it would be a fun photo to have. You know, since McD and I are both bald and all. But, I have gained a lot of weight, I look like I am crying all the time, and redness under my eyes. I really don't want my photo taken right now. Can you blame me?
Oh, and to make everything even better…I think I am getting ready to lose my fingernails.
Yep. You read that right.
I feel like someone shoved something up under all of my fingernails and then just left it there. I am pretty used to it now, but when I have to apply pressure to anything I certainly feel it.
The other night I described what it felt like to McD, and he looked at me kind of funny. Then he asked me if I've ever had anything shoved under my fingernails. And I have. One day we were working outside and I got a splinter way up under my fingernail. I worked for a doctor at the time, and he met me at the office to remove the splinter. He had to ram some tweezer like things up under my nail to get the splinter out. It hurt like h e double hockey sticks, but…I didn't cry. :)
So yes, McD, I do know what it feels like to have something shoved up under my fingernail. 🙂
That is kind of my update, and my apology to leaving everyone hanging lately.
I'll try to be better.
