I just discovered that the Red Heart yarn website has a special Christmas in July page that offers a new Christmas-themed free pattern each day in July!

I know a lot about the wound pump and drain lines. I had to learn to take of it myself, except that once a week, the home health nurse came to visit and checked out everything. I am sure you guys are seeing that she gets loads of protein and those "loaded" milkshakes. Sometimes it is hard, especially if the patient does not want to eat. I have been that way lately. Like today, we went to Carl's Jr. (Hardees) and I had the monster biscuit. I started to eat and then decided that I just wasn't hungry. I did end up eating something around 3:30: half a mayonnaise sandwich, LOL!!! Does your mom have access to home health care? In one of my posts, I sent you a video link. I will try to go back and find out where it is and resend it. Tell your dad to take care of himself and don't forget to take care of yourself, too. Prayers your way!
Mom has a health care nurse come daily. The drain line from her right kidney came out so she as an appointment to have it put back in tomorrow. I'm not sure how she keeps going.

Does anyone else have Yahoo email and were MADE to change to their "new and improved" service? It is crap--I cannot think of a nicer way to say it! I would be absolutely embarrassed to say that I had a hand in its development. What garbage! Does anyone have a suggestion of what we could switch to without a lot of trouble? I am desperate!

I have a dental appointment tomorrow morning. I will be starting on a treatment for bone health because of the chemo and radiation and I have to have a clearance from my dentist that I have no infections related to my teeth or gums. I start Zometa in October. The side effects sound like what I went through when I had to take Neulasta after each chemo treatment. I don't think it is going to be fun at all.

Here is what info I have:

Severe and occasionally incapacitating bone, joint, and/or muscle pain has been reported in patients taking bisphosphonates, including ZOMETA. Do not continue using ZOMETA if severe symptoms develop, as some patients had the symptoms reappear after taking ZOMETA or another bisphosphonate again. In aspirin sensitive patients, bronchoconstriction (tightening of the airways in the lungs) has been observed while taking bisphosphonates.

Report any hip, thigh, or groin pain to your doctor, as unusual thigh bone fractures have been reported in patients receiving bisphosphonates, including ZOMETA. These fractures may occur with little or no trauma.

HCM patients may experience flu-like symptoms (fever, chills, flushing, bone pain and/or joint or muscle pain). Common side effects in HCM patients include fever, nausea, constipation, anemia, shortness of breath, diarrhea, (Well, which is it?) abdominal pain, worsening of cancer, insomnia, vomiting, anxiety, (Ya think???)urinary tract infection, low phosphate levels, confusion, (I already have this, LOL) agitation, a fungal infection called moniliasis, low potassium levels, coughing, skeletal pain, low blood pressure, and low magnesium levels. Redness and swelling may occur at the site that you are injected.
Common side effects for patients with multiple myeloma and bone metastases due to solid tumors include bone pain, nausea, fatigue, anemia, fever, vomiting, constipation, shortness of breath, diarrhea, weakness, muscle pain, anorexia, cough, joint pain, lower-limb swelling, worsening of your cancer, headache, dizziness (excluding vertigo), insomnia, decreased weight, back pain, numbness/tingling, and abdominal pain. These side effects are listed regardless of any potential association with the medications used in registration studies of ZOMETA in bone metastases patients.
Eye-related side effects may occur with bisphosphonates, including ZOMETA. Cases of swelling related to fluid build-up in the eye, as well as inflammation of the uvea, sclera, episclera, conjunctiva, and iris of the eye have been reported.

Okay, who is ready for a field trip to see my oncologist? Any takers? I will share nicely, LOL!!!

We are going out to dinner tonight. I just didn't want leftovers (even though I love mac and cheese) and I don't really feel like cooking.

I will try to get back online when we get back. TTYL
None of those side effects sound good. We are continuing to pray for you. Cancer stinks.

Mgramsey, I prayed for your mother and you this morning during my prayer time. I hope she feels better! And praying for you to have strength during this difficult time!

Today, I took Kandice along on my bike tour.....she was a good mail-girl .

We just started when we stood at the traffic lights.....when I suddenly hear Mariah Carey singing.....a CD ....loud in a car.....but no...it was not Without You, Hero or any of her regular hits.........it was
.................................................. .................................................. ................... ...................."All I want for Christmas"........................................ .......................
Kandice and I were almost ecstatic.....lol.....I turned around to her with a huuuuge smile and gave her a thumps up........she returned my grin and that whole situation made my day.....

I heard the first Christmas Song of 2013.....on July 10th.....and the best is.....that it was not in my car

Good afternoon, everyone! How are you all doing? I am well. Just relaxing with you all.

What is new? Not much here. Today is my day off. It was nice to have a day off already, easing back into things. I am listening to Kringle Radio on the Tune-In app on my iPhone app. It's so enjoyable!

What is everyone's plans for tonight? I have some things I want to do around the house, but I am just going to mainly relax, spend time with my family, read some and watch the Christmas movie tonight on Hallmark.

Tomorrow, I am taking EA to the movies - she has never been there before, so this will be a treat for her. In the summer, they do a summer movie series, where it is $4.00 for the admission, popcorn, and drink. The movie is a year or so old, but kids still love it. I am then going to take her out to eat. She's looking to forward to it.

Well, I am off to get some things done. I will be back a little later to read some posts. Hope you all are enjoying your day! God Bless. Keep smiling. Talk soon!
