Lying in bed trying to wake up. Some days are slower than others.
I have chemo on Tuesdays now so this is day #2 after chemo. This is the time when I have to remind myself that I am not sad, I am just chemically altered. The body / mind connection is so strange. I always feel ..hmm..long pause while I try to think of the words. Low? Deflated? Small? None of those are quite right. But, it is my body feeling that way which makes my brain think I must be sad. I am not.
My hair is growing like crazy! I have all this new hair on my head that is about an inch long. Since my hair is so fine and wavy all the one inch hairs are sticking up all over the place. I am sure it is not noticeable to others but It makes me laugh when I look in the mirror.
I am doing a presentation in October at the Cancer Support Center on Cancer and Nutrition. I can already feel my chest tightening up at the prospect. I wish I did not have this overwhelming stage fright. I wish their was a better way to say that then ”stage fright”.
I am in search of a new puppy. On Tuesday after I had spent some time at the Humane Society and came home without a puppy I was leaving the condo for a dinner and suddenly my car was surrounded by puppies! It was not a weird chemo side effect mirage it was a woman in the neighborhood walking her adorable tiny fluffy dogs and their adorable fluffy puppies. Apparently I have a backyard breeder close by! They were too small for my house but I did enjoy ten minutes of puppy time.
Time to get up. Gotta run – up to two miles these days :), then I have my monthly womens networking luncheon, then picking up my husband who is flying in from California. Maybe a stop at the Humane Society after lunch if my sister has time.
Frank is almost too long for me to capture a picture when we are both in bed.
And a random picture of Katy and I that popped up recently
