The Old and News

Sitting up and at peace for the first time in a few days. From my window I can see the treetops from
the park nearby. It’s been interesting to watch the leaves change color and I am sure you’re thrilled with this information.

The news is a combination of old and new.  Extremely high fevers remain the order of the day; so destructive that when they’re over, I feel like I’ve been kicked down a flight of stairs and the rest of the day is pretty much a waste.

No visitors, but a call from Linda in Ireland every day has been quite a life-line. No news on the living space front either. Just more people looking out for me. Something has got to break on this one soon.

I met with my new Oncologist and feel very good about her. A new outlook and drug changes will begin happening on Monday. Aside from her, Dr. Scott (my future ex-husband) has jumped back into my case and all focus now seems centered on creating a better quality of life, for however long that may last. He has also chosen to continue with the pain medication (Fentanyl Patch) even upping the dosage slightly.

The pneumonia isn’t as annoying today, and so far, no fever lurking nearby. I’ve been hooked up to oxygen since last night, so I was dry and hoarse this morning, but water took care of that problem in no time. Scheduled for another 6-pak of platelets today, so I guess I'll be doing a lot more reading.

BTW, Some folks have said that their comments are not getting through and the only thing I can tell them is for some reason, comments that used to be directed to a special email account are now being posted by Blogger. I just found 15 comments and have posted to the blog. As with all things Blogger-related, there is no method or reason for this change, but I know now that there is one more place to hunt for comments now.

If you comments aren’t being posted it has nothing to do with my moderation. I haven’t had to delete a comment in a very long time. 

Not sure if this will make much sense, but too lazy to go over it all again. It is what it is.

Here’s to a beautiful weekend, and a bright beginning on Monday. I do need something positive in my heart today.

And so it goes.



  1. Monday's going to be the Day .....positive vibes as things fall in place next week!

  2. It's good to hear you are sitting up and feeling somewhat better. I hope those fevers stay away and you continue to gain strength. As Fearsome wrote, I check your blog several times daily as well- but please concentrate on rest and only post when you feel up to it. I'm sending you positive thoughts and wish you the best.
    Take care,

  3. Sending you positive, healing energy!

  4. Rally
    Rallying behind you Cajun.
    Hug, hug, hug n kiss!

  5. Sounds like our collective efforts just might be working, C. I do hope so because we're not going to stint on them. Here's looking for further reported improvements. Meantime more health-saturated vibes are winging their way over............Catch!

  6. Be sure there is an oxygen humidifier on the wall. Often they are too lazy to put one on and the oxygen can really mess up your nasal passages without it.

    I'm also glad you feel up to posting blogs for those of us care. I also hope that your new medicine regimen will help you to feel better.

  7. My comments not getting through have something to do with my computer. Some nefarious gremlin is causing mischief. And of all the folks I am anxious to know I am thinking of you, it's you !

  8. All positive energyfrom me to you!

  9. Glad to know that you feel good about the oncologist. I've assisted so many of my friends in their fight against cancer and I know how difficult it can be to built a good relationship with the doctors. So much mixed emotions are involved.....



Your comments are welcome if they are positive and/or helpful.
If they are simply a tirade or opinionated bullshit, they will be removed, so don't waste your time, or mine.
