  • Insomnia
    on Oct 20, 2009 in Side Effects
    Ron did not sleep at all last night. Not one wink. We figured he had been awake over 24 hours. After I left for work, he dozed off for about 2 hours. Then he called his doctor.  Insomnia is a side effect of Chemo, and has slowly become...
  • A Walk in the Park
    on Oct 19, 2009 in Recreation
    Ron's white blood cell counts are low, so the doctor told him to avoid people. That means no church or shopping. Poor guy has been suffering cabin fever. So, yesterday I took him for a drive on the island. We stopped at a state park so Ron could take...
  • Jesus, Bring the Rain
    on Oct 18, 2009 in Faith
    Yesterday, we had heavy rain all day. It got me thinking, we have alot of 'rain' in our lives. We can choose to drown in misery, or we can choose to grow. Mercy Me is one of my favorite groups. I hope their music blesses you today!
  • My Bald Headed Ziggy
    on Oct 15, 2009 in Humor
    When Ron and I dated in the late 70s and early 80s,e-mail did not exist. So, we sent tons of cards and letters  to each other. We have kept them all these years.... A quick survey of the box revealed that most of the car...

  • JUST A SCRATCH...
    on Oct 10, 2009 in Labs Side Effects
    Last night Ron was barely scratching his leg when it started to bleed. Luckily, bandages and pressure stopped it. This made me realize how serious this is... if he were to cut his finger while working in the kitchen, for example, I'd be calling&...
  • It's Flu Shot Time!
    on Oct 10, 2009 in Flu Humor
    Randy Tish, Pittsburg Tribune-ReviewI've had my "regular" flu shot. Now I am waiting for the H1N1 vaccine. I can't have the mist, because of my asthma. Also, it would not be good to expose Ron to  a live virus. So, I am waiting for the shot...

  • AN ALMOST REGULAR GUY
    on Oct 8, 2009 in Side Effects Humor
    We were told Ron's Chemo drugs would cause severe diarrhea. So, we stocked up for that. But it has given him the opposite problem. I had to make an emergency run to the grocery store at 5:30 a.m. this morning.     &...
