Welcome SITS! SITS Does a Bloggy Good...

Well, helllloooooo there!



It's after midnight and I just wanted to put up a quick post to welcome everyone from SITS!

I tried to clean up the place a bit (do you like the new curtains?) There's fresh coffee and donuts out for everyone so pull up a chair, or a pillow, and take a load off...

I'm so excited to have everyone here at my cute little blog that I can't even sleep right now. Ok, well, maybe it's also because of Mr T and because of the recent increase in dosage that I had to take again today, but I'm positive that THAT is only part of it!

And for all the rest of you who are stopping by who aren't visiting from SITS, and want other updates, here you go:

Mother in law is not doing good at all. She's gotten worse in fact. She was supposed to start chemo but because she's still infected with MRSA from the first and second cancer surgeries, and still has open wounds from the incisions, they haven't started that yet. She also has contracted some sort of viral infection that sounds like it's traveled to her chest. We're very worried that this could turn into Pneumonia or Bronchitis. She has Stage 4 cancer and I can't imagine losing her to something like pneumonia or bronchitis instead because of the complications!

My dosage of Mr T was increased another 25 mg today. Wow.

Did I say WOW?

Holy hell...

Normally if I guzzle water like there's no tomorrow, the burning, tingling in my hands and feet stays at bay. Not this afternoon. The pain was widespread but the worst was in my left thumb which hurt, well, HURTS still, like I hit it with a hammer. Tonight the pain is still bad in my hands and feet, really bad in my thumb, but other then no appetite, that's about it so far.

Well, that and the fact that I've lost.....

TEN POUNDS!!!!!!

The first week I lost almost 4 pounds, which I thought could have been a fluke, but then this past week I've lost an additional 6 pounds. Amazing what happens when you stop eating all kinds of crap, er, I mean, being more responsible. And Mr T is actually turning me off to junk food and making me crave protein and healthier foods. Most of it still tastes like cardboard. It's weird. I WANT to eat it but when I go to eat it, it doesn't taste good. If that can make any sense at all! lol

All right, I'm closing now so I can post this before anyone stops by...

Happy Friday everyone!!!

Congratulations on being fetured on SITS.s Hope you have a saucy day.
I'm sorry to hear about your MIL's illness.s Big hugs.
The Mr. T you're referring to would be Topomax, huh?
I was misdiagnosed and put on that medication two years ago and I have to tell you, I was glad to get off of it.s I lost 20 lbs in about two weeks, (hated to give up that perk) but the other side effects were horrible.
Hang in there.

NJDecorator said...

Congrats on your feature today - we love SITS don't we!s Happy belated Birthday as well, hope your 32nd was a nice headache free birthday.
And Topomax - I may talk to my doctor about it, my headaches are less frequent (every few weeks) so it may not be for me.s But good luck!

KathyB! said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your MIL.s It does seem unfair to fight so hard against a beast like cancer and then taken out by a random stray illness instead.
s
And what is MR. T?s It sounds like it a wonderful diet medication but from your comments I'm quite sure that's not why you're on it : )s Take care of yourself and don't enjoy that weight loss too much!!

Hey there!s Stopping by from SITS to say hello!s I think it's amazing how the body adapts to different food types as you described.s I was dieting a while back (Nutrisystem) and I went for a while with no junk food, and when I went to go eat a fast food burger again, it literally made me sick.s Then of course I fell off the wagon and now burgers are delicious again, lol!

Congrats on your weight loss :) sbut it sucks that you have to deal with so much pain.s thanks for writing about it, I am sure there are a ton of people out there that will benefit from your experience.

Emily said...

I love you sense of humor! It really comes in handy when things aren't going that well; and it relieves stress too. "Can I blog in jail?" I always ask, "Can I paint in jail?" And sometimes, if a minimum security jail, I think it may not be so bad; a vacation from all of my daily responsibilities. Martha Stewart washed pans while she was there, I do that everyday!
