I am still here....

and still HOT, as most of us are right now.  I am so anxious for Fall.

I had a bit of a scare recently.  My vision in my left eye started bothering me.  I thought it was a floater, but when I went in to get some new contacts and glasses, I was told I have a dent on my cornea.  No, I didn't know that could happen either.  Apparently, it is a side effect of chemo that he was aware of.  There really isn't anything that can be done, I just have to adjust to it.

I immediately thought, oh someday, the day I don't want to rush...but someday the Lord will make me whole again and I won't have dented corneas anymore, no cancer, no achey ness....white teeth....and we will all find out that the perfect size is not an 8!!

So of course, when I see my oncologist in a couple of weeks, I am sure he is going to want to address this.  I have had so many different meds during this cancer....that I should be thankful it is only a dented cornea, and that my cornea just didn't fall off!!

We are praying right now for Ro's brother.  He has been battling cancer for approximately 7 or 8 years.  He is quite weak right now....so if you think of it, they would appreciate your prayers.

Someday, someone will find a cure for the dreaded C......I tell my doctor that after I am gone, they better not find out that standing on your head eating a banana is the cure!!  He said...."well, did you try that???"  See, there really is some humor in all of this!

Dented Ceekay signing off till next time!!

Thanks everyone for your kind words....

we have had some rain and that has helped a bit...it is still hot, but a bit more bearable.  I went out and watched a beautiful lightning show last night.  I sat on my patio and sang How Great Thou Art and Our God is an Awesome God....

I also had chemo yesterday morning.  All went well.  I do hate the pounds I have put on with this treatment...but, as my husband says....upright chubby is better than horizontal skinny!

Been trying to go swimming a few times each week and of course I get one walk in each day at least with Bentley Boy.

Overall, I feel good.  I will take it.  Although sometimes, I think, what does it feel like to be completely well, no treatments?  I have forgotten.  Praise God, I will someday know that feeling again....I am not rushing it, but when it comes, I will enjoy not being a pin cushion anymore!!

Have a great week.  Do something you enjoy!!

sorry....that pretty much sums it up.  I saw the oncologist today and had chemo.  All is well.  My body is just tired.  This heat is draining me.  My legs ache.  My eyes are itchy from dust in the air...and blah, blah, blah.

I am planning on resting most of tomorrow.  Then I should be more perky...is that correct???  more perkier by this weekend.

Thanks for all your encouragement and prayers.  So many of you are so faithful in your prayers for me.

I am sorry I am not more upbeat right now.  I will get there.  Soon, I will be decorating our new place for the Fall.  Oh, wonderful, glorious Fall!  How many of us are counting the days?

Take care my friends!
