#Cancer Journey - short update

Hopefully some of you noticed I was gone and wondered why... Long story short, I became very ill over the weekend - my body was purging or something - and since I was also extremely fatigued I was not awake enough to drink enough Gatorade to keep me hydrated, so I ended up in the hospital from Sunday night until today. I'm home now, more and more hopelessly behind. Plus my cats are seriously hacked off at me, since Dmitry does not understand his proper place in the household and kowtow to and spoil them properly... So, lots to do to fix this. As always, your support and encouragement are appreciated.

    1. Thanks, Linda. As the nurse who took care of me this week could tell you, I definitely have kept my sense of humor... :-)

  4. Many well wishes!

    You know, stress isn't great on the body - I don't think anyone would take it amiss if you cut off like, a few days ago, and didn't worry about catching up past that :)

  6. Thanks Sharon and Peter. Zoo Crew... I might miss something important, though, like someone being wrong on the Internet, and we can't have THAT! What I was doing before this was to go through new stuff first, check for important things, and then go back to the old stuff and work through it slowly...

  7. Yuck! :-( I hope the coffee is better in your hospitals than ours. Glad you're home and on your feet again.

    All the best,

    1. The coffee is awful. I won't drink it. Anyway, I needed to avoid diuretics (obviously, being dehydrated and all), so I mostly drank water and Gatorade.

  9. YES you were missed and I like a lot of others figured you felt pretty bad from the treatments. I know if you don't feel thirsty it's hard to drink anything and keep it down. But please try my friend......

    1. I have trouble with plain water, which tastes sort of iodine-y now. I'm drinking a lot of Gatorade. Thanks for your support!

  12. There are so many ups and downs to the process, and I'm hoping the ups soon start to squeeze out the downs. You are a brave lady with a great attitude. I so admire your spirit. Strength to you!
