We are in Tupelo at North Mississippi Medical Center…WAITING!
There was some problem with scheduling. I knew Dr. Howard was going to fit me in to his surgery schedule, but now, it will be interesting! They are going to get me ready to have my chemo embolism procedure around noon. We are attacking the left lobe, and I am SO READY!!!!
#GODISGOOD and this amazing procedure is saving my life! This is a liver tumor KILLER! And what a #blessing that is!
I am disappointed about the scheduling situation, but what can a girl do!?! No singing and dancing today. Waiting drains the life out of you! Or at least it drains the Sissons! Pepper is pretty sassy this morning, though! 🤣😂
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?
Another day of chemo fun – There should be no bad, painful reactions to medicine, but started the day with a flat tire!!! So much fun! I am an hour late to chemo (YAY) but it should go smoothly. The nurses are trying to find a way to work around the reaction issues. We will see! I should know more this afternoon or tomorrow.😷
