I’ve never worn two pieces of “jewelry” before! Getting a fancy x-ray of my port and a CT today before seeing Dr. Howard’s nurse practitioner to see what’s next with the chemo embolism procedures! It’s gonna be a LONG day! 😷
And, I’m back again today! I know this is making me better, but it is a good day to snuggle under the covers! BTW, hear is my #TUESDAYTIP : Of you know you are going to have to give blood at a doctor’s visit, be sure to load up on the H2O the day before and leading up to the appointment. The water makes you more hydrated and that plumps up your veins. I have tiny veins that are hard to find. Drinking water saved me from a lot of digging!😫 I hate that!
#Chemo day! No new meds, just not taking that one I was having a reaction to, so a shorter day on #ChemoMonday! So, some good news! We go Thursday to to a variety of tests and talk more about #chemoembolisms. Two more #chemoembos to go! This should kill those #tumors! I am so ready to get that going! We both deeply appreciate all of y’all’s prayers. I means more to us than you will ever know! Much love! #Godisgood
And when he is not sleeping in the chemo room with me, Pepper is still singing and dancing! Lord help us all! I thought now that #HeeHaw is off the air, the singing would slow down, but he proves to me daily that he doesn’t need that inspiration! 😜 Remind me again of the signs that you might be going crazy?

My mother-in-law made my favorite #potatosoup! 😋 It is PERFECT for cold, rainy #winter days! Pepper piles on the #cornbread or crackers, but not me! It is PERFECT as is! YUM! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Oh, I am LOVING what will be the most minimalist Christmas tree we have ever had! No digging out the usual ornaments. This year, instead of digging, we bought new fairy lights and silver ball ornaments! It is a different type of tree for a very different Christmas! LOVIN’ IT! ❤️🧚
