Regardless of the situation, no matter how hopeless the outcome may be, I will never quit, and I will never back down. I have become the wolf.

So glad to be home


Got home from the hospital on Saturday night, about 5:00.  I was so exhausted that I slept till Sunday morning.  I don’t give a rats ass how much you seem to sleep in the hospital.  It’s not sleeping. 

Eased into waking up on Sunday to get ready for 12:00 mass at St. Anne’s in Detroit.  I love that church, the priest is easy to understand and he writes good sermons.  He even does a white-lighter ceremony at the end to the Mass for those who need or desire blessings.  I was impressed.  Got home, worked around the house till after 1:00, then took a nap.  Slept a bit longer than I thought I would, till 6:00.  J and Ma had to make do with a Caesars pizza for dinner.

I hate being a weakling.  I’ve always been the strong one, ready to kick ass and take names, now I don’t even care to know their names.  Tried to open a jar that had already been opened before.  Had to ask J to do it for me.  Have managed to make dinner one day in a row though.  I’m working on tonite’s dinner.   Probably chicken and asparagus.

My arms really hurt from all the IV’s  and blood draws I got the last week.  Nine in one arm, five n the other.  I feel like I’ve had really bad acupuncture. 

Tons of appointments between now and the ninth, and for once they are not all mine.  OK, We are going to the dentist cause I lost a filling again, the Vets cause the dogs need their shots, the OB/GYN (self explanatory), the oncologist, the Radiation oncologist, the dog groomers for nails and tails then back to my regular doctor for a followup.  Wow, I think that’s it.  Quite a ride huh?

I should go, I’m tired and hungry.  Don’t know why I’m so tired, they gave me two pints of blood while I was in the hospital, not to mention the potassium and magnesium.  If I start chemo and radiation next week, I’m screwed.

Love to you all.  I’m taking it easy today, writing letters and returning phone calls.
