Week three without my Pal (Pouch) and Looking forward to Springsteen Concert

After a rough couple of days last week, adjustment to being re-hooked in the intetinal department hasn't been too bad. Nothing normal by any means, but pretty quiet thus far. I promise not to report on the details of my Bowel Movements, I'm not old enough for THAT club!

Still sore from surgeries- I dread sneezing as it does a number on my abdominal stitches. Eating enough throughout the day still a challenge, and fighting lethargy too.

Lucky for me, Ruth, my sister-in-law, is making a return visit this Monday to help cart me around while Lee is out of town, and give my parents a break too. Again, I am so very blessed to have such support in my life.

Friday I am going for a Wig Appointment. The hair is just going and going, I look really silly now.

Nothing too exciting. I need to rally, get some energy and get back to chemo in a few weeks. '

I am getting really antsy and annoyed. I just am ready to be "normal" again. It's been 6 months since diagnosis - went kind of fast. I want to do the things I used to bitch about- cook dinner, do the laundry, drive my kids all over town. I feel so lost right now, and bored.

Thank you all for your continued prayers, love and support!

  2. Hi Peggy,

    It sounds like you’ve been through the ringer…yet again and I am so sorry to hear it. Hopefully you’ve been gaining some strength over the past few days, resting and healing from this last experience.

    I hope you’re enjoying time with your sister-in-law this week and looking forward to your wig shopping excursion tomorrow. I too hope you’re back to “normal” soon and bitching about cooking dinner before you know it.

    You’re in my prayers, always in my heart and I hope we can spend some time together soon.

    Hugs and kisses...
