4-26-2011 Lou said that I snored all last night. Luckily, all that noise didn't bother me at all

4-12-2011 Wow, I took four days off from blogging.

4-8-2011 My allergies are acting up, which is no wonder since everything is coated with pollen these days.

4-7-2011 Another beautiful day today! I am going to walk Sam before I go to work.

4-6-2011 Today cabinets finally get installed in my laundry room. I am pretty excited.

4-4-2011 Slept great again! I am getting spoiled.

4-3-2011 Lou helped me rearrange my office, and he gave me the TV from the mancave! I really want Google TV after seeing it at Best Buy.

4-1-2011 Watch out today! It's April Fool's Day!

March 30, 2011 Knock on wood. Right now I feel fine.

Tuesday March 29, 2011 I am still waking up a million times per night, but this morning I felt less exhausted than yesterday.

Sunday March 27, 2011 Home! And it's my birthday! Yahoo!

Thursday through Saturday March 26, 2011 I am at Duke getting chemo... but Lou is home with Samantha if you want to phone him.

March 23, 2011 Must be allergies giving me a sore throat. Pollen is everywhere!

March 21, 2011 So awesome to be home! Slept great. Today, I go to work but Lou stays on vacation for one more day.

March 19, 2011 We are in beautiful Altantic Beach, NC, for the weekend.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

March 15, 2011 Today Lou is fine. I think that it was allergies bothering him on Sunday. Spring seems to be here, based on how often I am blowing my nose.

March 13, 2011 Lou is not feeling well, so here is my chance to take care of him for once.

March 11, 2011 I have been sleeping so well. Everything is better all day after a good night's sleep.

March 10, 2011 Slept till 7:30AM! What a miracle!

March 9, 2011 Again I woke up at 4:00AM, wide awake, no nausea. Yesterday went downhill fast. Hoping that today stays good.

March 7, 2011 Woke up at 4:00AM, wide awake, no nausea.

March 3 to 5, 2011 I'm at Duke for second cycle of chemo. If you want to visit, text me and I'll give ya my room number. Looks like I'll be here till 9:00PM Saturday.

March 3, 2011 Woke up early again. Robert is picking us up at 9:00AM, and then Ifosfamide Adventure 2 begins.

March 1, 2011 Welcome to March! I woke up really early this morning. I could not fall back to sleep, but I am dragging. Maybe more tea will help...

2-26-2011 Today we go see In The Heights at the DPAC! I am feeling good. I stayed up wicked late last night, hanging out with the girls. Fun

2-25-2011 I have a bounce in my step today

2-24-2011 Yikes! Slept till 8:30, and now I need to start moving if I am going to get to the office in time for my 10:00 meeting! No time to post anything... but I do feel pretty good today.

2-23-2011 Woke up feeling good at 7:28AM.

2-22-2011 6:00AM comes mighty early. I am up and on my way to my checkup.

2-21-2011 I feel pretty good right now. I have a long day ahead of me and hope to do everything I have planned, but if I have to bail out, then I bail out.

2-20-2011 The decadron must be out of my system because last night I slept great all night long!

2-19-2011 I guess three Advil work because I woke up feeling pretty good this morning.

2-18-2011 Another restless night, another early morning.

2-17-2011 Woke up several times in the night, but it is great to be home in my own bed.

Saturday through Tuesday I am at Duke undergoing my first ifosfamide treatment.

2-12-2011 Running around getting ready to leave for Duke...

2-11-2011 I couldn't sleep at all last night. I felt awful. So I got up and watched all the Mentalist episodes on my Tivo. This morning I have no pain, but I am wiped out

2-10-2011 I slept great last night. I guess I was pretty wiped out. I did take some Advil before going to bed to take away the discomfort in my lungs.

Wednesday 2-9-2011 I'm hanging in there.

Tuesday 2-8-2011 Lou and I finally watched the movie about Facebook tonight. It was great.

Monday 2-7-2011 Did not turn on my alarm clock, so I slept till 9:00AM. Feeling pretty good today, and really looking forward to this scan.

Sunday 2-6-2011 Super Bowl Sunday! Lou is doing all the work to get ready for the party. Go Packers!

Wednesday 2-2-2011 I had to get up really early today because we had dentist appointments. When the lady asked me if anything in my medical record had changed since my last visit, I was so glad to report that I am not getting chemo and I am not diabetic.

Monday 1-31-2011 Feeling pretty good this morning. Samantha is watching me pretty closely, to make sure that I walk her before I go to work.

Saturday 1-29-2011 Slept great, woke up early, and then watched the third Dirty Harry movie this morning with Lou. It is much harder than I thought to take a picture of myself with my cell phone, so we have to wait for Lou to take a picture of my new hair and glassess.

Thursday 1-27-2011 Woke up super early so I could log on to work and run some processes before everyone else logged on and made the system slow... Woke up in the middle of the night thinking that the house was on fire. I jumped out of bed and started yelling. Poor Lou. That man is going to have a heart attack one night.
