FELT LIKE I HAD BEEN RUN OVER BY THE "CHEMO TRUCK"!!!

This last chemo treatment really zapped me....red, achy, tired and some nausea. I am happy to say that I am on the mend...this should be a good week. I hate feeling bad with the chemo, but I really hate having to miss church and ya ya time on Sundays..getting out for this just makes my whole week go better...nothing like worship time and craft time to lift your spirits. I had planned on going to Little Rock today, go to Bible Study tonight, spend the night with Kimberly and then try and meet with Linda in the morning. When I got up this morning at 4:00, it was snowing like crazy...although it has now warmed up and most of it has melted. My leg is a little swollen today, so I have decided to stay home and look forward to next weekend. We are supposed to get another BIG winter storm on Wednesday. I have always loved snow and the beauty of it...but I think I have had enough this year...I am ready for Spring and planting flowers and vegetables.

We are really getting excited about our beach trip in October! Missy has already been researching houses and condos...and is already getting some good response. The beach was mine and Jennifer's favorite place to go together. I know that it will be hard to go without her...but, I really think that she would want me to go...it is so hard to believe that she has been gone for almost five years...sometimes it seems like it was only yesterday....I miss her everyday and always will. I am so grateful of the promise that I will see her again.

Hope everyone stays warm and safe and has a great week. I will keep my pink gloves on and "Keep Fighting Like a Girl"!!

What can I say except that I feel for you :) I'm on the very tale end of the upswing time and it always feels good to be normal. Countdown to Thursday.

Have a great day today Debbie!

Sleep-aid-pills are effective in helping you to gain peaceful sleep at night and sleeping pill such as Ambien has obtained approval from the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) which further authenticates it efficacy. Ambien is a popular sleep aid and it functions by unleashing effects on the central nervous system of the brain. As soon as this sleeping pill is administered, it starts affecting the central nervous system and decreases the activity of the brain. With the reduction of brain activity, your anxiety is lowered and this in turn helps you to enjoy peaceful sleep throughout the night.
