Nothing here just resting !
What about you?
We are going Kayaking if the weather holds, and taking the Dogs. Else we will Hike in the Mountains. Either way, the trees are turning colors and it is very pretty!
Best Always, mike
Have a great weekend!
My recovery from my lumpectomy has been full of problems, so my surgeon is going back in tomorrow morning. I'll spend the weekend at home recovering (it is outpatient surgery). We're hoping that a little reworking will alleviate the severe pain I've been suffering for the past week.
My original plans were to curl in a tournament. I had to drop off of my team (fortunately, they were able to find someone else.)
However, in the scheme of things, the surgery is minor. It's a major nuisance, but it's a sort of non-cancer/cancer surgery, as it is related to a diagnostic surgery that found everything benign, but left me with the post-op blues.
I hope I can get back on the ice next week, and I hope everyone else has a great weekend. (Boy, would I love to be out kayaking!)
We are sending thoughts and prayers your way Alice! Feel better!
Alice i am so sorry you have to do this.....but you are right...we can live with the non-cancer bumps and grinds....feel well girl
oh and I hope you are back on the ice like a true Canuck.......!!!!! :)
Go curling asap!
"No curling this weekend!"
I guess my surgeon knows me!
you are always ahead of your time Pepe!
Plan to hang low, chill with the fam and take in a movie.
I'm back to work pretty much full time and having a blast in my new role and trying hard to keep the stress low.
I think I'll clean the garage and read a new book i purchased this week...
its called: "I'd rather do Chemo, than clean out the garage" by Fran Di Giancomo
can't wait to dive in.
Enjoy the Chemo....I mean the cleaning !.
Hugs my friend!
The first Saturday of November for about the last 15 years or so has been designated sister shopping day! My mom and her six sisters and me (my moms youngest sister is six months younger than me) began this tradition in prepping for our annual Christmas party which averaged up to 80 folks! We would hit the dollar stores and buy two $1 toys for each little one for Santa to give out during our party. We would also do some additional shopping and garage sales along the way and always splurge for a great meal! I had one aunt who was very frugal and she would always "splurge" and order a steak! She passed away three years ago after battling B cell non Hodgkins lymphoma, we always remember her steak meal when we order ours! We had one rule, no kids allowed! It was our day! You had to be 18 or graduated from high school! My wonderful aunts are now entering their mid and late sixties with my mom the oldest at 72. I have so many wonderful memories of these years! We laugh till we pee our pants almost and bring tears to our eyes! Last year I was still taking chemo, I tagged along but it was rough, I plan on making up for that come Saturday! Bring on the depends and let the laughter flow!
Happy weekend to everyone!
So amazing party ! Must be so funny , enjoy the Saturday!!
Spending time in the hospital and maybe at home if I get released. Family will be coming around which is so soothing. I pray each and everyone has a peacefully weekend. Jeff
I pray for that , enjoy the family!.
Hey Pepe, Rick is looking forward to having his kids come up for a visit. I'm hoping that his sister and nephew will come too. Rick likes having visitors, I just wish more of his old friends would stop by since it always perks him up.
Wishing everyone a nice weekend
This morning I woke up to freezing rain which went very fast into snow coming down for the rest of the day.
I am dating again and have a dinner date planned for saturday evening. Plus we will be changing our clocks.
Do wish the weather a little better and warmer.
Wishing all of you a wonderfull weekend,
Enjoy your extra hour ,we had it last week!.
visiting me etc, 3.5 years later many of them have disappeared! . Just a few very good friend still coming or visiting us!.
Hope you enjoy the visit!.
I'd thought about jetting off to Monaco this weekend, but instead I think gonna stay home and open a big ole can of whupass on cancer.
I'm pulling out my can of whupass all month long.
October was the month for the attitude adjustment and November is now designated... Can o' Whupass!
thank you for that!
mine begins now.
What say we make it a keg of whupass and make a big party of it!
Thanks to you both! LOL.
I am. Resting and going to see Cirque de Soleil today. No woking and no drama.
Enjoy it ketz!
I am going to go try on wigs... I have lost almost 2/3rds of my hair. I think a wig will help me feel a little better about myself and how I look.
My daughter took my electric razor to my hair today and shaved it all off in my hospital room. This new treatment with Zaltrap made my hair fall out. It does do something to make me feel better. Have fun looking for your new wig. Jeff
Trying to get more rest. Excited to see surgeon next week about Ileostomy reversal. Probably watch my racing friends hit the MX track.
Have a good rest!
High School football game tonight, they are 8-0 so far and last year went to state championship and won in Atlanta. So that means 2 more regular season games and maybe 5 playoff games. The rest of the weekend rest for chemo #9 Monday morning. It seems it will never end!
Rest and get energy for next week!
Just got a call from my doc about the CT Scan I had today. It seems the pain in my side is the appendix and he wants me to go into the hospital to get it removed. I'll be taking my laptop so I can keep all y'all informed.
Sorry to hear that you need to head for hospital again but hopeful that this surgery will get you back on the road to recovery.
Alice shared her "sleeping with her eye candy Anesthesiologist again", so you have got to come back with some good stories of your own.
Hugs and feel better soonest,
Marie who loves kitties
Darn those sharp things that we keep getting stuck with. Slicing and dicing is not my favorite way to spend time. I hope that your appendectomy and recovery are simple and straightforward, no excitement (tho maybe you'll get to enjoy some eye candy as well!)
Take care of yourself,
PS - it's a damned shame that some meds cause amnesia. I know that I "missed" at least one night of fun with my husband due to Ambien. I wonder what I missed due to Versed while sleeping with my cute anesthesiologist today!
This weekend! It would be a major problem, but ate all what an appendix operation for us? LOL..
Well now seriously wish you and praying for the best!
It is lovely here. I am outside alot now since I was inside for months on the chemo. Each day I feel a little better. I am making myself as strong as possible on the inside and out. And I will enjoy the extra hour of sleep with pulling back the clocks!
Enjoy the weather and the extra hour! Hugs my friend!
i am feeling much better, off to the worlds best conference on oncology and cancer!
