    Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone for their prayers and work on my eyesight. The funny feeling blurry vision did subside over the weekend, and I'm convinced it was in response to your wonderful thoughts!

    I am touched at all the loving messages on this thread and cannot think how to express how much they mean to me. to all you beautiful people!

    I had a really tough time early in the morning before my treatment because of [extended] family problems. I was startled out of bed at a very early hour and basically stressed out with several phone calls until I had to leave for treatment. Fortunately, I was able to calm down on the ride to treatment and bless my meds throughout the day.

    My hemoglobin was a bit low, so they gave me a red blood cell stimulator. I think it may be the reason for today's mild, but persistent headache. It wasn't Procrit, but a "cousin" of it that is supposed to be longer-acting. Also, I was given that longer-acting anti-nausea drug, Aloxi, and hoping that will help over the next few days. I slept poorly last night--woke up at 4 AM and couldn't go back to sleep, but had a nice long nap this afternoon. I opted to go back to the Neupogen shots at increased levels, so will have one each on three days running next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with blood work on Monday and Thursday. I learned that the chemical, Taxotere, is not processed through the kidneys, so that is good. I am 37.5% done with chemical treatments if the protocol goes as planned! I did have pre-chemo Reiki locally and remotely (thanks, Brenda!).

    My daughter has just cooked a lovely Asian noodle dish and is calling me to dinner! Those appetite-stimulating steroids are still in effect, so I can enjoy this meal. We'll see what tomorrow brings; whether or not the Aloxi works for me.

    Food is getting cold, so I have to run.

    Thanks again, and blessings be upon you!
