Day +2: All’s well

Just a quick post to let you know I’m having a very good day, busy with iPad, xbox, and catching up on some email. Warren visited this afternoon, and we played more Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne on the xbox 360. I’ve done 215 laps around the ward since Nov. 24, managing still to keep my 25 per day average, although I realize this may change soon.

I’m also actually hungry today instead of having to sweet talk myself into eating. I’m about to have my first dose of Cytoxan now, and the final dose tomorrow. As with the other chemo, I’m well armed ahead of time with prophylactic drugs to ward off potential side effects.

Michael will be here this evening.


  1. Glad to hear you are doing so well. Keep it up! Love you.
    Cathy 🙂

  2. I’m glad you have an appetite and that your keeping yourself busy. Continue on your path to getting better. Wish we could come out and see you. Love you! Sin

  3. So glad to know that things are going well. We think of you and mike often. We have been offering up prayers and lots of positive thoughts for you. Keep up the good work and may your side effects be few. Get better fast! Take Care—- Sherry

  4. I like that you have averaged your laps! I think I will start averaging my exercise time so I won’t feel guilty about skipping a day. 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  5. I’ve actually done 25 every day but am thinking ahead 🙂

  6. Four cactus flowers are open. Heading to the Y of Ozarks for weekend. Will keep thinking of you trotting around the floor. Love you, Linda

  7. Great news Karen! Keep us informed! I believe (hope) I am right behind you! Go GO GO! Keep walking! Hugs, Lori

  9. Hi Karen,
    Hope you have another great day, keep on trotting.

  10. Good Morning;
    You are moving right along aren’t you?
    Keep up the great work and may God keep you speeding right along.
    Hoping the second trip with Cytoxan goes well for you.
    I will make sure I give the Lord an extra prayer for you today.
    All the kitties are now in their new home and all seems to be well. Laura is pregnant by Teddy my new boy, so get well and out of there for the next event.
    Susanne is doing a great job, just miss knowing you are the one behind the scene. You always do such a wonderful job with your talent.
    Have a blessed day and keep walking.
    Jan & the fur purrs
