Good morning... I have a little down time and was able to hop on the 'net for a while.
Michelle, Judi, thanks for stopping by! I'll definitely keep you posted on the blood work. Also, I'm feeling better about the deployment. I still haven't had much time to talk to the hubby about it, but either way, it will work out. The best way to approach something like that is positively. Any other way and you won't make it through in good shape.
My trip is going "alright".
My friend just turned 29 years on on 10/31. We've been friends since 1st grade = 20+ year now! She has Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and learned late last year she had cervical cancer. A few weeks ago, her petscan revealed it was back. She also has swelling of her lymph nodes and the tube that comes from your bladder (urethra (sp?). To make a long story short - either the cancer or the swelling of those nodes (= kidney failure) will get the best of her. She's had her lifetime dosage of radiation and she's too weak and doesn't weigh enough to receive chemo. It's been a hard visit, as she's very sleepy and dealing with all the emotions that are brought on when facing death. She's like my sister and all I can do is be here for her. I'm her strong person right now.
I could type much more, but I don't want to broadcast her life. I guess I'm posting this so if things go crazy (CRAZIER!) for me, this is part of the reason why.
While I'm on here, I'll post a quick bit about my food...horrible, but that's to be expected.
I haven't been drinking enough water. I am picking up the intake today, otherwise I will get dehydrated and feel like sh*t by the time I get home tomorrow evening. On Friday, I ate a cobb salad and skinny SF latte at the airport. We had pizza (yikes! 4 slices...) for dinner and 8 oz regular ginger ale.
Yesterday, I had 2 cups of coffee with half and half and regular sugar, an English muffin with butter and jam, and for dinner hamburger with cole slaw and fresh strawberries and pineapple.
Today, I've had a bowl of cereal wth whole milk (all they have, tryng t fatten dear friend up!) and an English muffin with brummel and brown butter. I have had water today, so that's good. Nobody's really eating much. Hopefully, if my friend is feeling better this afternoon/evening, we'll get out a little.
We did play Wii last night. A game of bowling and quite a few rounds of golf. So, I got some "movement" in! ha
Anyway, for some reason, this forum s acting up on their computer, so I'm going to go. I won't be online tomorrow, so I'll see you on Tuesday. Take care and love to all!
