Hey everyone- I am glad you all got to see my television debut. Thank you Doug and his coworker, Shane, for figuring out how to put it on my blog. (See below.)
I have to tell you, I was just reading my last note and realized that Doug is coming in behind me and making me sound much better. I have a tendency to write quickly and not always grammatically correct... as in crossing my Ts, dotting my Is, so-to-speak. So, he is making me sound better than I really do.
I am trying to respond to as many people as I can. I have been a bit under the weather since last night. Chemo seemed to go well but I think I caught a stomach bug from someone this weekend. I was having some nausea and vomiting all night last night. I couldn't keep my medication down, so this morning at around 4:30am Doug had to go downstairs to get my pain medication. My back was hurting since I hadn't taken any pain medication in several hours.
Today, I layed around a lot and felt pretty helpless. Doug, thankfully, stayed home from work to help me out with Ella. His company has been so amazing in letting him be away from work, more than usual to be with me. But, I think they know that Doug is a very hard worker and doesn't slack at anything. He gets his work done no matter what. He truly is amazing.
I was sad I missed an event with my mother and sister this morning with my mother's JCYM group. I was supposed to go but with my recent illness, I was not able to attend. My mother has been trying to get me to go but each time something comes up. I hope to make it to one of their meetings. Sorry mom!
I hope now that I have had a little time to rest, and I got my pump off today, that I should be up and at 'em tomorrow. As I tell you all the time, Ella keeps me going. She is so fun to watch, she was daddy's little helper today. She helped him clean the vacuum cleaner, put new door stoppers on, etc. She is quite the little helper! She is just amazing to me and really brought my spirits up! I am so blessed.
Anyway, hopefully my bug is gone and I am on the go again soon. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. They are definitely working. I appreciate you all. shawndra
