Three cheers for a good night of sleep! I have been following all kinds of advice like exercising daily, getting some fresh air every day, no screen time before bed, drinking warm milk before bed, taking prescription drugs and all kinds of things to help me sleep at night. Well, this week, nothing has been working. So yesterday I broke all of the rules. I stayed in my pajamas all day long. I didn’t get out and exercise, nor did I get any fresh air. I drank a glass of merlot and watched t.v. before going to bed. I didn’t take anything to help me sleep, and guess what, it worked! I feel like a new woman this morning!
Eating has become interesting. I have a very limited sense of taste. If food has a really strong taste, I will likely sense it. For example, I taste a strong sharp cheddar cheese, but I can’t taste a mild salsa. I am finding that foods and drinks that have been long time favorites are now disgusting. I have been a fan of Wal-Mart brand flavored water for years. Yesterday I spit it out. Sad.
I had an appointment with Dr. Hoberman this week. Randy and I need to make a decision as to whether or not to have a mastectomy done. My situation is unique in that I had two different kinds of cancers. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of research that has been done for this type of situation. We don’t need to make a decision real soon, so I will be conferring with Dr. VanderWoude, Dr. Porter, and the Ultimate Physician in the next couple of weeks. Please pray for God’s grace as we consider this option.
I can’t believe it is Friday already! I am looking forward to some warmer weather this weekend and then next week I will begin working part time. The track and tennis seasons will be in full swing and I am excited to watch our girls as they participate in these spring sports.
Have a fabulous Friday!
