Health Update

Quick update on yesterday’s hospital visit.

It was such a long day. Full-brain radiation, stop in the lab, bone scan and CT, both with contrast, plus two infusions.

Everyone was so nice. We got out a little early too.

But I did experience what was very close to my worst nightmare. I fell (in front of) a public restroom. The only way it could have been worse if it was actually IN the restroom. I was icked out all day. But again, that is why I bring Purell wipes and other emergency stuff in my bathroom bag that I bring with me.

I was so tired by the end of the day (about 7 hours). My husband and I picked up fries at In N Out on the way home, which was a complete joy! I love car-fries! We eat the hot fries in the car on the way home. It is just heaven.

Day 2 and Quicksilver

Yesterday’s radiation went really well. Day 2 today. The fatigue has already set in. It hit fast this time. It took a few days last time.

May I introduce Quicksilver (can you tell my husband named this one? LOL)

I had to cannibalize some of Wilbert’s spring set, but I will be starting a red, white, and blue yarn-bombing on Quicksilver to celebrate Memorial Day.

Amos is happy to meet Quicksilver.


I go in for an MRI today. And tomorrow I start physical therapy.

I love the look on their faces when they ask “Are you claustrophobic?” And I answer with “yes, but it’s just an MRI, I’ve done them before. So I can just suck it up and deal.” They always look at me like they don’t know what to do with me after that answer. LOL

I will let you know how things go. I don’t know when I will have the results back, but hopefully soon, and hopefully there won’t be much to report. 😉
