Second Chemo Treatment and Friends Coming?

DeBary, FL.

49 deg. mostly cloudy, no wind.
Forecast = Cloudy. High 72F. Winds ENE at 5 to 10 mph.

Thursday, Linda spent the whole day at the chemo place getting her second chemo treatment. (8:30 AM to 3:30 PM). Then, yesterday, she had to go back for the injection that helps her bones generate the blood cells that help her immune system fight off infections etc. Everything went well and until the injection started doing its thing yesterday evening, she was feeling fine.

She now has bone and joint aches that she says seems to come from down deep inside of her. Pain meds help some, but unless she's willing to take some of that prescribed pain medicine that puts her off in "La La Land", she'll just have wait it out.

Last time, the pain and discomfort lasted for about 3 days and she's hoping that this time it won't be any longer than that.

Not much else happening around here. While Linda was getting her chemo treatment Thursday, Jim went to Lowe's and bought a light to put over the little work bench out in the shed. It's one of those that just clamp on and has a large aluminum shade over it. Now he should be able to see what he doing out there. ;-)

Oh! Friends and followers of this blog, Laurel and George Owen e-mailed Jim and wanted to know if they could get together with Jim and Linda sometime this next week? They're work-camping  over in Altoona, FL which isn't too far from here. Anyway, after a couple more e-mails, Jim called Laurel and arrangements were made for them to come here to the house next Friday. Jim and Linda haven't seen them for quite awhile so it should be fun catching up on what's been happening in their lives in the last few years. ;-)

Don't know what's happening around here today. A lot will depend on how Linda is feeling. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

A Point to Ponder : One nice thing about egotists: They don't talk about other people.



  1. Laurie and George are good people so I know you will have a good visit. Hope the aftereffects aren't too bad or too long lasting.

  2. We are looking forward to seeing you guys! It's been way too long, and it's nice that we are in the same part of the state :-)
