House Arrest...

Hello all, just checking in to let you all know I'm still alive and kickin'! I last left you on the day after my treatment when I just felt like resting and seriously that's been all that I have been doing! I put myself on house arrest today because I was not feeling good at all yesterday. I had no energy whatsoever and I was pretty weak. I basically felt like everything had been sucked out of me. Not fun. My body didn't hurt (which was weird) but it took everything out of me just to do something!

I wanted to go the Farmer's Market here in Mesa this morning, but after not sleeping good (for the 2nd night in a row, thank you Prednisone)...I decided I just didn't feel like I had enough energy to be out of the house dealing with people and such. Therefore, I stayed at home all day and I'm thankful that I did. It did the trick. I only took one nap too even though a second was tempting! I had my lunch outside in the sun to get my Vitamin D, which felt amazing. I even watched some of my shows online on my patio because it was too nice to be inside. It was also a nice change of scenery for me as well since all I have been doing is laying in my chair watching TV. Getting kind of old, but seriously, that's all I feel like doing.

I took a hot shower, cooked myself a yummy healthy dinner of grilled fish and vegetables and I'm starting to get some more pep in my step. I will still continue to take it easy and I won't be leaving the house until tomorrow night for Easter dinner at Outback with Mom, Dad and Dad's cousin Steve! I'm looking forward to it.

I finally got a package my from 2nd chemo angel, Mandy. She lives in Massachusetts and she seems really nice. I don't really know that much about her yet, but she sent me a cute coffee mug with some white chocolate hot chocolate mix from her favorite coffee shop in Cape Cod. I tried it out last night and it's delicious! Thanks Mandy! :)

I also got another package yesterday from E. Bunny....duh, the Easter Bunny. Well, the return address was my parents address, but my Mom swears she didn't send me anything and that my Easter gift is waiting at home for me tomorrow! So, if anyone wants to own up to this gift, I'd like to say thank you!! :)

Anywho, I'm just plugging along. Yesterday was definitely not a good day, but hey, I didn't expect everyday to be easy. I just have to take it one day at a time...

I hope everyone has a happy and blessed Easter Sunday tomorrow!

I will check back in soon...

Love, E


  1. Greg and I thought of you this week when we were on a mini-vacation in Virginia. We were walking downtown Fredericksburg and we passed a store where there was a shirt displayed in the front window. It said, "Fight Like a Girl!" I told Greg I wanted to get it for you, but the store was closed. He said it's the thought that counts. I am glad to hear that you are feeling better and we continue to keep you close in our thoughts. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you, okay?


  2. Awww, thanks Rhonda! It sure is the thought that counts!! I appreciate that. :) Thank you for continuing to think of me and keep me in your thoughts. It means the world to me!! :) Love you guys!!
