Oh Oh Oh I’m on Fire

It has been a strange week for me. Something is going on physically. Almost all of my joints were sore, and a good chunk of muscle groups too. I worked out on Monday and then didn’t go back to the gym because it feels like I spent a weekend pretending to be a lumberjack. I assume it is an inflammatory issue. With me almost everything is an inflammation issue. I have been eating a lot of potatoes and potatoes are said to cause inflammation. I have that on my list to research but just haven’t gotten to it yet.*

I had chemo on Friday and was not happy that my bloodworm showed white blood cell count rising and lymphocytes dropping. This is the second one in a row to show that. I cannot tell you how pissed off I am going to be if my next CT shows that stupid ass MAC infection is still there.

But at the same time, it was a nice week. The weather was beautiful for the most part and I spent a lot of time on course work and got some good feedback so I know I am heading in the right direction.

A friend is dealing with a medical issue that makes me sad and concerned. I don’t really have anything else to say about that. It is just so aggravating to have so many people with problems. I want them all to be better.

If my husband has no firm plans for us today I will either do a 10:30 workout or a Noon Buti Yoga. I want to do both but I am almost positive that two days after chemo is not a good time to try that!

Dusty has been off of our bed for a couple of weeks now and she seems to have adjusted. I do miss our morning cuddles though.


*I wonder how TJ’s husband is doing after his procedure

  1. “bloodworm” hahaha.
    jim’s injection is working. As long as he cooperates. He had a recheck last week. He told the doc it was 85% at first and is now about 75. I gave him the ‘what???’ look and he said, “you weren’t supposed to come in here with me”. See, last week when he was feeling better he overdid it at work and then came home and did ALL the weed eating. It’s a lot. I told him not to do it all in one day but did he listen? ha. He needs to learn that with these back issues he has to stop BEFORE it hurts. But the time it hurts, he’s over done it. BUT, he hasn’t needed any pain meds so really, it’s done the job very well. Hopefully the benefit will last awhile. He had an option to have another shot right away. She said some ppl get more relief when they get 2 close together. But since he’s not needing anything for pain, he’s decided to wait it out and see how long this one lasts.
    I will be interested to see what you find about potatoes. That is one of jim’s basic food groups.
