An UP and DOWN day today

July 29, 2017 Saturday

I started out the day nice and well rested and had a good morning of sewing and regular household activities.  Then I mowed the grass and it looked a lot better.  Then I had to rest.  I think I had been kind of  “high” on steroids for the last few days, but since I took no steroids this morning, they have worn off.  Suddenly!!

I rested a while after mowing then went to dinner with some friends.

We had a nice time and a nice dinner, too.  I really do appreciate all the kindness and cards and gifts I have received but the most important thing has been all the support from SO many people.  It’s really humbling.

After I got home, I just about collapsed into my big chair with the TV remote and my iPad.  I didn’t get up except to write the blog and I’m heading to bed soon.

I’ve had several vicious hot flashes but maybe they will go away tomorrow since my steroid-driven energy has gone away!!  I really will miss that.  I have had no nausea or foot pains or any other problems, but it’s just a guess as to when all of that will start.  My hair still comes out when I pull it out, but I am not playing that game.  It may be just falling out a little more than it was.  It’s just a waiting game, I suppose.

I did receive a nice check from the cancer insurance policy that I thought was not going to be helpful.  If you haven’t had cancer, I’d suggest looking into getting a cancer policy – they can be very helpful if you get cancer. It’s all a gamble of course.
