Complaints and Praises

First I am going to complain. I am totally drained from this last round of chemo. My hands and feet are super dry. I have the taste of chemo in my mouth. My feet cramp. My nails are sore. My eyes water non stop. Did I mention that I am super tired? I cry for no reason. I eat too much. It is beautiful outside and I have no desire to be out there. Keagan is recovering.....slowly. Kylie is leaving us for a week long mission trip. My blister and sunburn still are not healing.

There. Done complaining.

Now on to the praises. I am so thankful that I am done with the nasty rounds of chemo. Once I get through these next couple of days, I shouldn't have to feel like this ever again! Dr. Hoberman's office called yesterday and surgery is scheduled for Monday, August 9. Guess what that means - I get to go to Alaska with the rest of my family this summer!!!!

That's all for now!



  1. Hi Robin,
    I like the new look of the blog! Even if you haven't been out too much, you did accomplish something! I'm sorry this round of chemo isn't being nice to you, but praise God it's the last of the nasty ones. Maybe you're just supposed to keep Keagan company! I'm so excited that you are going to be able to go to Alaska. What an amazing trip it is and to spend it with your family will make it that much better. It's also something to look forward to during the down times. Stay strong and keep fighting like a girl. I'll keep praying for the side effects to lessen and for you to be able to get some rest.

    Love you,

  2. Hey Friend,

    I love the new blog look. You have been busy, even though you feel lousy. I'm hoping this re-do was a little distraction. I'm so sorry this last round has you down, but the key word is LAST!! I'll continue to pray you through this difficult time and then on to bigger and better things, like Alaska! How wonderful is God's timing in everything!!! What a wonderful thing to look forward amazing trip with your family. Sounds like Keagan will be keeping your company in the recovery mode, so enjoy this "bonding time". :) Stay strong and keep up the good fight!!!

    Corla :)

  3. Hey Mom!! --
    I love you.
    Keagan (:

  4. Blog looks GREAT!! So glad you are scheduled and you get to go on vacation with your family! Yay for praises!

  5. I am so sorry for the yuck stuff, but SO happy you will be able to go on the trip. Praying for you from afar!! Love, Laurie :)

  6. Hi Robin, I'm so sorry to hear that you have the constantly watering eyes, too! I've had them since March and continually have to tell people I'm not crying! I've been told it'll go away...I'm just hoping SOON! I always carry extra kleenex with me, and put Eucerin AQUAPHOR ointment all around my eyes when I go to bed, to help with the chapping. Hang in there...we will get through this!
