May 21, 2009 - Gorgeous Weather!

Hiya Bloggy!

Ok... I dare anyone to complain about the weather over the next couple of days or longer! It is gorgeous these days and the long range ... ok, 7 day forecast is for sun, sun and more sun!! Yippeee!

Now, you may be sitting back, pouring yourself a coffee and settling in for a long blog entry. Ha!! Well, it won't be this one :) I realized that the last blog entry was 10 days ago, so I wanted to touch base with everyone to let you know that all is going well. But since it is 11:30pm, it's time for me to crawl into bed with my little diva schnauzer who has already taken over my side of the bed ;)

No real news to report. I'm feeling great today... although, for the past week I was wondering what was up. I felt lethargic and low on energy... but the biggie was I had no appetite. It's not that nothing taste good... I just wasn't hungry. And then on Tues night I seemed to have this dry cough... which got me very paranoid. Every time I see my oncologist, she always asks if I'm having any issues with breathing (answer is always no) and then she asks, "Do you have a dry cough at all?" Again, the answer is always no. But Monday night... ack! A dry cough. And then when I thought of it... why did I have no appetite? The last time I had no appetite was just prior to being diagnosed!! So yes, I was freaking out a bit.

So Wed morning I went to see my GP. I told him that I probably was being paranoid, but it was freaking me out... so he did a thorough check of my lungs and pronounced me just fine. The lungs are healthy, no sign of any fluid on them and no signs of any rattle. He said my skin tone is totally healthy and normal looking... and my eyes are looking just fine. I then told him about the lack of appetite for 6 days and how I had hardly eaten a thing, not because I felt sick... I just wasn't hungry. Well, so much for the starvation diet... I hopped on the scales and I didn't lose even one measly pound in 6 days. Seriously, I was eating next to nothing... a piece of toast in the morning and maybe a half pear or banana in the evening. And for that... I lost nothing!! ::: SCREAM :::

Anywho... once he declared that I was not suffering from anything serious, I left his office feeling a whole lot better!! Today, I had my energy back and although I'm not really showing any serious hunger pangs, my appetite has definitely come back.

Ok... hopefully next blog report I'll have more to report... but all is going really well and I'm busier than ever as we get closer and closer to the summer shows!!

Nighty Nite!!
