Full Night's Sleep ... Yippie!

I am so moved by the support I have received in the last few days ... I cannot even tell you. I repeat this cycle every three weeks and I often think that the followers, especially, the long time followers are getting tired of hearing me talk about the same stuff or the same bad few days I experience each month.

What I have since realized is that there are new cancer patients coming on board all the time and by repeating it ... I'm hoping new survivors will gain from the information.

Last night I took an Adivan which allowed me to have the first full night's sleep since a week ago Monday ... that was when I started the steroids.

Sleep this past week as been horrid .... broken up, intense dreams, stopped breathing, snoring and so on.

This morning I'm struggling with a nose bleed. Once we get that under control, I think I'll be feeling well enough to get a few things done.

My plans for the day are to go to the Cancer Institute and have the PICC Line redressed. Shortly after that, I have my appointment with my psychologist.

Once again, thanks to everyone for their loving comments ... they are so important to me. I really value my followers.

And we value our 'leader'... :^D Seriously, Daria, there are new people out there looking for this very information everyday. Having it presented in plain English, having it presented in a chatty way, it's good. It's comforting. Keep on keeping on, friend!

I didn't realize you were on a 3 week schedule and I am on a weekly one. I knew we each had a treatment last Tuesday and was praying for your treatment yesterday. But I was happy to pray for you and will keep you in my prayers. Guess we'll be receiving treatment together in 2 more weeks on Tuesday. Blessings. Hope you continue to sleep well.Those steroids are yucky. They make me feel like I have crawly things all over me :)
