If It Isn't One Thing, It's Another

Another week is over.
I completed my 3rd chemo and am suffering the side effects.
I did get a good night's sleep last night.....ahhhh  :-) so I am sure today will be better.
Hubby was up early this morning doing laundry and dishes. All of our clothes are clean....just a bit wet. You see, the other day our dryer died......and the new one won't be delivered until the middle of next week. The store doesn't stock that gas dryer....they are expensive! Kev is off to the laundromat later this morning to dry everything. The things that guy does for me. We got a new washer last June, and this dryer can't be more than 5 years old. sad, very sad.
Now, the ice cuber on our refrigerator is not working. If you know me, you know I LOVE ice, I like lots of ice in my cold drinks. I'll have to ask Kev to dig out the ice cube trays from the basement. It's just a little thing, but what is ice tea without ice???
We are supposed to get snow today, I did see flurries earlier.... MAYBE the lake will keep us warm enough to only get more rain??? I think everyone is depressed because we have only seen rain/clouds recently. 
It's April and everyone is going on vacation.....everyone but me. My girlfriend is leaving for AZ. Another friend is going on a bus trip out east to see the Biltmore Manson. I and a friend were supposed to be on that trip :-(  Carolee and I would have had  ton of fun with Carla. I am the one who REALLY wanted to take that trip, I've wanted to see the Biltmore for several years.  But it's not happening. Kevin did cancel his bowling trip to Reno, he doesn't want to leave me for 4 days. I am sure someone could have looked in on me and I would have been OK, but I am still glad he's not going. 
So, instead of going on trips, and to grandparents day, and to my granddaughters's dance recitals I am going to chemo and dr appointments. 
Oh yeah, I had other trips planned that were canceled and more that may have to be cancelled. I am glad that last summer was a good one and that I was able to do as much as I wanted. 
As long as I am in complaint mode, here's more: my weight is down again. I am hoping it's just water weight from my lungs. That seems to be improving. I still get pretty darn winded but I can sleep on my left side now, a few days ago I could not breath when I tried to lay on my left side. In case I didn't explain earlier, that's why I use a wheel chair if I have to walk any distance, I am just too winded (from my lung problems).
And that's the way it is!


  1. my heart aches for you dear. praying for you.

  2. Linda, Honestly if I lived nearby I would come stay with you and help you so Kev could go bowling...or have you over to my house. Please do all the right things, I am holding you in my thoughts and prayers. I think of you everyday now. I am praying for you too. Hugs to you my dear friend, love xoxo,Susie

  3. I think of you every day and say a prayer!
    Your Kev is sure stepping up to the plate - just as you would do for him, I'm sure! Pace yourself. Next summer you will be back in top form!!!

  4. I continue to say prayers for you everyday that you'll kick the cancer again in it's butt.
    Three cheers for Kev for all of his efforts. I imagine you both feel better that he's decided not to go to Reno, there's less stress for both of you being together.
    So sorry to hear about your dryer and ice maker crapping out on you. Are you sure we're not related? Things going south for us always happens in multiples, too.

  5. The nice thing about our trips, right now, is that we don't have to pack for them. I am praying that the next two, at least the one day trip, don't have to be cancelled. I am hoping that you will be well enough to go and enjoy them! I'm willing to that I have achieved the expertise at the thrift store. :-)

  6. Oh dear friend, I will continue to pray for you! FEEL better, ya hear me? Each day will be better I PRAY! Sending a big 'ole hug your way this morning:)

  7. Prayers that you feel better soon. I can not imagine how terrible you must feel but you have fought this battle before and you are a survivor so just keep your eyes on God and let His work be done!
