Sorry to all who check our blog frequently for updates. Let me just say that chemo is no joke. These past few days have been pretty tough. I did well the day after chemo but by Friday afternoon I was starting to feel the effects of the medicine. By Saturday I was out for the count. Thankfully, Grandpa Wayne was here to take care of Ella. I don't remember much because some of the anti-nausea meds give you short term memory loss. I just remember I slept most of the day. The nausea eased up by Monday. Needless, to say my appetite wasn't effected to much. The part that is the hardest is the fatigue and joint pain. It just feels like you have the flu. I'm not complaining though. The side effects were so much better then I thought they would be. At least now we know what to expect and what to plan for.
We've learned we'll probably need some babysitting help....so all of you that have offered you'll be getting a call soon. Since Ella is crawling all over the place she needs constant supervision. She's already tried to climb up the Christmas tree! Ella and I were having a little fun one day trying on some hats I bought in case my hair falls out. She is such a little nut! She has definitely got her Daddy's sense of humor!
Speaking of Joel....he interviewed for an upper management position yesterday and we found out today that he got the job! YEEEAAAAHHH! He will be transferring to a store in Northeast Columbia and will be managing the departments he really wanted. What an answer to prayer!!
Grandpa Wayne (Ella calls him "Pa") had to take Ella on her first Carousel ride. They rode it 3 times in a row because every time it stopped she cried and wanted more. They had a blast. Check out our flickr site for the new pictures.
Tomorrow we go for our weekly chemo infusion. This medicine that I'm getting weekly is suppose to have no side effects. I'm glad. I don't need any interference with my "turkey eat'n." We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving (and you find good sales on Friday)!
