Christmas Eve
Friday, January 01, 2016      3 comments

Again I am behind in blogging, mostly because of my computer problems. No sooner do I get online, generally speaking, than my computer freezes up, and the only way to solve the problem it to turn it off at the switch and start over. That only ... Read more
Not my favorite place to spend Christmas Eve
Wednesday, December 23, 2015      1 comments

So Danny had gotten a platelet transfusion on Monday, and Dr. Gidvani, who is turning out to be one of those irritating individuals who is always right, thought that I needed to bring him back today, just in case. His platelets hadn't been ... Read more
Last chemo
Monday, December 21, 2015      3 comments

I am so behind in my writing about Danny's journey. I was without my computer for literally weeks while a friend's husband had it. He fixed it, but made some changes which have led to some problems for me. Every time I get online, it freezes ... Read more
Some amusing incidents
Sunday, December 06, 2015      5 comments

Last Monday, when we went in for counts, there were a couple of amusing (to me, anyway) incidents that I wanted to record, just for myself. And because I always need to smile. The psychologist who did the most recent neuropsych exam ... Read more
Thanksgiving and beyond
Wednesday, December 02, 2015      4 comments

Wow! It has been a very long time since I have posted anything. As far as myself, I can say that I ate too much on Thanksgiving, and have since been trying to get back where I was on November 25th, with reasonable success. Danny...well.... Read more
A Scare at Work
Saturday, November 21, 2015      5 comments

What a day! In the interest of earning a bit more money for Christmas, I applied for another job watching children at another church, the one affiliated with my son's scout troop. The people there are just lovely, and I have to say that ... Read more
On blood transfusions and delays...
Thursday, November 19, 2015      2 comments

I mentioned in my last blog that on Monday Dr. Gidvani thought that Danny's hemoglobin might drop enough to need a transfusion in a few days, so he ordered that the blood be typed and cross-matched. I'm not exactly sure what is entailed i... Read more
Feeling Sad
Tuesday, November 17, 2015      4 comments

Danny had a week off from chemo and appointments last week, which was a nice break. Today when we came in, I was shocked and deeply saddened to find out that Major Dahmer's husband had died last Wednesday. Major Dahmer is the only ... Read more
Remembering my veterans
Thursday, November 12, 2015      1 comments

It is the very tail end of Veteran's Day, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention all the veterans who are/have been important in my life. First, my father, who was an Army officer in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, and who was a model to me all m... Read more
What's been happening
Sunday, November 08, 2015      3 comments

I got completely snowed under with life since my last posting, and haven't been able to update regularly with all the details about Danny with every symptom and what the doctors think, etc., etc. I record all that here mainly because this... Read more
Proud Mother Moment
Saturday, October 31, 2015      7 comments

My oldest surprised me a whole, whole lot today by announcing that he had gotten some prizes in a 'short story' writing contest. Before I could get too excited, he told me that the prize would be an Amazon gift card. Nice, much better tha... Read more
Danny's 'Episode'
Tuesday, October 27, 2015      6 comments

Danny had a major episode this afternoon, which scared me and terrified Henry. We had just returned from a trip, and Danny walked in the front door after me. Henry was still at the car getting stuff. Danny said he couldn't walk, or so... Read more
Home from the hospital - hooray!
Sunday, October 25, 2015      3 comments

Danny's hospitalization wasn't a pleasant one. Well, they never are, but some are definitely worse than others. He was just miserable the whole time. But when I asked him why he felt awful, or which part of his body hurt, I got snapped at tha... Read more
Back in the hospital
Saturday, October 24, 2015      2 comments

In my last blog I mentioned that Danny's ANC was zero this past Tuesday and that he would have an automatic hospitalization if he were to get a fever. And that he had to return to the clinic on Friday for counts otherwise, in hopes of having ne... Read more
Week four/blood counts
Wednesday, October 21, 2015      2 comments

After his chemo last week, Dr. Howell, whose clinic day it was, and I, had decided that Danny would come back on Wednesday of this week for counts. Seemed reasonable to me, one week past his chemo, which would probably be about the time he woul... Read more
