and no one is here to see it. that is the thing when they come home he's asleep they leave when he's asleep. so Im going to look like the real bad guy when I point this out.
Hugs .... it is simply just so hard......

I remembered 2 important things.

2. I did have the pm listing your name.


I just wanted to post and let you know I had not done # 1 yet and was too lazy to go check # 2....

Steriods are winning here --- even my 1st hydocodone is not putting me to sleep.... but in another 30 minutes I can hit round 2 and I WILL go to sleep...

Plain curious here.
Aggie Books-

There will be another Aggie book next Christmas.
There will also be another book with Vannie and Laird as primary characters.
Aggie and Luke are also going to Walden Farm for a month in Volume 6 of Past Forward. Shhh... you didn't hear that from me.

Past Forward is around 500k words. It's released in the episodes, yes, but it is also released in five volumes of approximately 100k words each (most of my books are 90-120k words). So it's one long book in five volumes. (Soon to be six.) If you email me, I'll send you the individual volumes.

Volume 1 has episodes 1-5
Volume 2 has episodes 6-9
volume 3 has episodes 10-14
Volume 4 has episodes 15-18
Volume 5 has episodes 19-23 (22 and 23 are not yet released)

Additionally, Luke is showing up in the book I'm writing right now, Not a Word. This book is really ripping my heart out. I am so proud of Luke right now that I can't stand it. What I'm writing right now is taking place at almost the exact time that Aggie loses her sister and gains the kids.

So... yep! Lots are coming.

Forgive me. Truly. I'll stop working on Mac right now. No one cares if he decides God is worth it anyway, right?

I know Chautona.... I just keep being tempted and that voice gets softer on each NO....

I know I should follow thru with the recliner first, but it is easier to shop online for that dang Silhouette cameo than go to the city to the Lazy Boy store. Earliest I can go there is next Thursday after work. So the silhouette may win out as my 1st biggie.

Did my first new treatment today. Would not take anything besides the antibodic IV before getting to visit with the doctor. Had 2 pages of questions to go over with him. Am so much more informed and relieved. Basically I have Periotonal Implant Disease - an interval progression of Metastatic growth -- means that there is a film like area with small tumors growing on the abdominal wall near the L5 vertebrae ( a spatial reference point NOT anything invading another organ or spine). This is in my lymph node on the left pelvic lymph nodes around the femoral artery. Dr. Baltz even gave me his cell phone today, to call at anytime if I have a problem, and told me to please use it. That floored me.

Then took my first chemo pill (tamoxifen) and the new drug Adria (red devil) + my old standbys of Carboplatin and Taxol. Super high on steriods (which I have to have because of allergic reactions to the Carbo); having many hot flashes and sweats due to the red devil + steriods plus increased nausea. But I am not too bad.

The effects will be cumulative. I hate that the chemo fog will return. It is sorta like being on a stage behind gauze curtains right now... I can understand things but not very clearly at times. When the chemo fog returns, it is like the velvet curtain on the stage has dropped over the gauze, I hear you but I don't always process the information clearly. That is about the best analogy I can offer you
on what I refer to as chemo fog.

Good news it is not terminal and is treatment. Bad news at least 6 months of weekly treatments plus I have to have good scans in Feb and April, in order to go back to every 2 weeks.

Good news I do not have to take the Nuelasta or Procrit shots. Bad news, my white counts will make me suspectible to everything. Red cells will drop fast due to the Red Devil... so to expect transfusions often.

I will probably have to stop driving in mid January. I will go back on the walker around that same time, and possibly a cane as well for support.T As far as work, he tells me he will let me continue until I am sleeping more than I am awake... that is a nasty side effect that occurs on weekly chemo... I have my fingers cross I can make it to Spring Break before having to do medical leave.

All in all, I am much relieved. Have all the scary scenarios out of my head. Can focus on getting my Portfolios accomplished and working as long as I can. The daily human interaction really helps me stay positive.

I plan on going recliner hunting next week. Already called my neice, Laura Jill (LJ) and asked if she wanted my current (I bought it used) leather Lane swivel rocker recliner. It is a mite short for me and it gives me some sore spots if I sit in it too long.

Arlene, get a BIG recliner. Mine is the "right" size for me, but I tried out DH's and found that you can get in all kinds of positions in a men's size recliner. (fetal position if you want to lie on your side, etc, etc.)

so there are people who are dog people... and people who are not. ( this is a given right) so you open up your mail and you have all these emails from people (in your family) who are not dog people telling you how sorry they are. and Im thinking what the heck? ( I only told you guys and just now the vsn gals) so...

turned on facebook ( slaps forehead) kid posted all about this (from his point of view) all over the stupid thing for the last week. even shot video's of storm all sickly. (and posted them too)
I feel bad for him that he is hurting so bad but the video's kill me ( I cannot look at them)

Another crazy day at work. Don't know when I am ever going to get my work done, as the pile keeps growing and I'm going through days of not getting a single thing off it.
Came home to the first session with the person I might be tutoring. I offered the first one for free, to see if we would be a good fit. I'm not sure. Very nice person, but didn't bring anything for me to help them with, and couldn't tell me what they needed/wanted me to help them with. I kinda went through their binder to see what I could see, but there wasn't much written work there for me to see (which I find odd by this point in the school year) and when I tried to help them with the one assignment they did have to do, they let me for about 10 min. or so, then said they preferred to do it at home on their own. They said that we should get to know each other and then they will let me help them with their work. So we ended up spending the last third of the hour just talking. I can sort of see their point, and I do want them to feel comfortable with me. But at the same time, if we continue and they are going to be paying me for tutoring, I would not feel right if we spent most of the session talking KWIM?
Oh well, guess I will see if they want to continue with me or not before I start worrying about it.

J is probably having a very tough time. Being a man-child he thinks he has to be tough. Sometimes you just need to lie down across your bed and kick and scream.

I'm with you about the videos~I would not be able to watch.

I'm more a cat person (but can't have one 'cause then I don't breathe too well. And the breathing thing is kind of a necessity) than a dog person, but I do not think I could watch such videos either.

Yes. They are an exchange student. And while they are taking regular high-school classes, the specific purpose of this exchange is for them to become proficient in English.
