Yays and Nays

Isn't this arrangement adorable?
Last night I was thinking...there has to be something positive I can I thought....and thought.
Yay * that it's raining outside and not snowing....b/c it is really windy out-there
Yay *for rides to and from my appointments, I just can not do it yet
Yay * I have started reading again
Yay * my hubby gets me anything I want to eat (which isn't much)
Yay * I get next week off chemo
Yay * March is 1/2 over and spring is on the way

 I did not have chemo today b/c my blood count was too low. I guess it would be a Nay b/c I've never had to miss a chemo blood work was always super (I need to eat protein, but I hate red meat.....try something else)
Nay * Easter is less than 2 weeks away but I will be unable to have our annual egg hunt. It is way too much to ask Kev to do alone and he thinks it would be too much for me, guess I have to agree. I just do not have the energy, I kick visitors out after an hour.
Nay * my house smells dusty
Nay * our water tastes funny (these last 2 are chemo related)

That's all for today, folks!!!


  1. Linda, Bless your heart. You are at least counting some blessings. Love the flower. Maybe some one in your family, could help Kev with the egg hunt. Sending hugs to you. Be strong sweet lady. Love you, xoxo,Susie

  2. You know Linda taster's get off during chemo. The only thing I would eat was soft DQ ice cream, vanilla. I hate vanilla normally the one and only time I chowed it down. Hang on and be glad you are among the living no matter how difficult it is. This too shall pass.

  3. I think it's good to post your feelings. Get both the hard and positive out. Your family and friends want to share this journey with you. God bless you!

  4. Yay! You have twice as many yays as nays! That is a very cute arrangement. Love the butterfly on it. Hugs and prayers.

  5. thinking and praying for you everyday. found your blog through another :)

  6. Yay for yays:). You just keep thinking that way! Sending HUGS AND PRAYERS your way!

  7. You are a trooper Linda! In light of all the nay's in your life right now, you are keeping a good sense of humor. :) Just a tip to increase your iron intake...Frosted Mini Wheats! Each serving has 90% of the recommended daily allowance for iron so you could maybe double or triple up on it. I learned this from a blog friend who has been battling cancer and had the same problem as you. She told me since my iron stays low a lot. Hope this helps...:) Blessings and hugs my friend....and prayers too!
