I had a wonderful day today. Let me start with last night though. Randy and I have volunteered to be a part of a back yard bbq ministry through our church. When I looked at the calendar and the first event was scheduled for the week after chemo, I was nervous, but agreed to TRY to be there. Fortunately, I was feeling quite well and we went to the event. It was awesome and I am eager to share the event with you in person sometime.
Given the history of how the side effects have taken place since I started chemo, I have been expecting some changes this week. Last night "it" happened and I was unable to sleep. My mom came this morning to help with some things around the house before the cleaning ladies came. I started crying because ?????? (You guessed it, there was no reason to cry.) My mom took me as a guest to her aqua fitness class at the Grand Haven YMCA. This is a class she has been attending for a very long time and I know many of the ladies have been praying for me. It was nice to meet many of them. We then went out for lunch at Kirby Grill - Outside!! How awesome! I took a little siesta at their house before coming back to Holland for an appointment with Dr. Porter. He suggested a couple of things to help me sleep better and get the emotions under control a little better. Tonight I will try a new prescription and we'll see what happens!
The last stop of the day was the wig shop. I wanted to get my wig trimmed a bit and I also had a tiara to pick up. Dinner was served on the deck and I am ready to say goodnight!
