    I am doing okay. I ache all over but other than that so far so good. Food is an issue as my taste is way off, but I am eating what tastes good. Thank heaven for Brita water bottles!

    I have an appointment on 10/31 for a one week check up. Next treatment is 11/14.

    Update

    Well Halloween was an interesting day.

    I got sick before I left for my Doctor's appointment. Not good. I survived the drive to Knoxville and back. Got sick again after I got home.

    The problem. My definition of nausea and my doctor's definition of nausea were not the same. Long story short. I had been nauseated for days but I hadn't got sick. I spent 5 hours in the bathroom Halloween afternoon and evening. After 2 doses of nausea medication, I was able to escape the bathroom and go to bed.

    My white blood count was low so the shot that I got the day after chemo hadn't worked all its magic yet. My doctor was concerned that I might have an issue by the weekend so he put me on an antibiotic for for 7 days and my doctor wanted another CBC drawn to check my levels.

    The next morning (11/1), I am happy to report that I felt much, much better.

    So today (11/2), I go get the blood drawn and they call me later in the day and tell me that my white blood count has recovered.

    I go to Physical therapy about my left arm range of motion and find out that I am not nearly broken as I think I am. I just need some help stretching an area or two where my lymph nodes were removed. So Physical therapy has been scheduled and my dance card for November just got real busy. My Physical therapist rides so we speak the same language.

    Then I go see my Doctor to get a release so that I can go back to work on Monday, (11/5). I just walk into the office and here he comes, white coat and his wheeled briefcase getting ready to leave for the weekend. I block the door and tell him that I need him to sign my release or HR won't let me go back to work on Monday. He signed my release, which he had already agreed to do on Halloween.

    So all in all, it has been an interesting couple of days.

    That's all good news Dawn!

    You are on the right track with eating what tastes good. When my dad was going through this, he hated EVERYTHING, so Mom started experimenting....found that things he used to love made him queasy, and things he never could stand now tasted good (weird stuff...Cap'n Crunch, brussels sprouts, etc). So think out of the box! Also....small portions of new things to see how they "sit".

    So very glad you are making good progress.

    My portion sizes are way, way down. No matter what I do, my mouth is what I think in a state of salt. I know it is really more of a chemical thing, but that's what I am calling it.

    Yesterday, on the way home, Mom, Dad and I stopped at Ryan's to eat. I had a small bowl of clam chowder which was okay. Then I had mashed potatoes and brown gravy which was a dud and then macaroni & cheese, which also turned out to be a dud. The best thing that I ate yesterday was a single scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    Re: Good thoughts and prayers requested, please... Breast Cancer

    Well it is official.

    I have a lot more room in my helmet now.

    Yeah, all my hair finished falling out this morning. Went and had the rest buzzed off.

    The lady that cuts my hair wasn't real happy that she had to buzz it off. She was hoping that I wouldn't lose my hair. I thought she was going to cry on me, but she didn't. I told her that it is just hair and it will grow back.

    Update

    Third round of chemo is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM. Alma is going with me to drive me home.

    Today was my last day to work for the year. I take my last 2 vacation days for tomorrow and Thursday. My plant is furloughed for the week of 12/10 and then we are on winter shutdown for the weeks of 12/17 and 12/24. We were supposed to go back to work on 1/2 but that has been pushed back to 1/7 so the some of our major plant renovations can have a little more time to get completed. We have inherited 2 sport cruisers (280SDA & 310SDA) from our Knoxville Plant and our plant needed some renovations in order to accommodate these new to us models.

    This second round of chemo hasn't been bad. I got sick on 11/21 at 10:30 PM just before going to bed. Just kind of struck out of the blue.

    I am trying my best to stay ahead of the nausea and do my very best not to get sick.

    I will give you another update tomorrow.
