The steroids had me starting the day early again. I was able to stretch it out until 4:30 am, but getting up at that time makes for a long day. I felt good enough yesterday that I wanted to try to go to into the office today. In hindsight, that was probably overly optimistic. I was at my desk working at 6:30, so by 10:30, I was looking at the clock. I worked until 12:30, then went home and had something to eat. I thought I had my second wind, so I ran a couple of errands. I stretched it too far, and was toast by the time I got home.
On the plus side, the anti nausea meds are working. Sometimes it feels as though I’ve been kicked in the stomach, but I haven’t had to run to the bathroom yet.
Smarter choices tomorrow. I’m getting an inkling of what’s to come. It’s a little daunting. I need to learn to take it easy and rest for the fight.
Linda, this is a day at a time adventure.

Linda, sounds like it will take some adjusting to what your ‘new normal’ will be .. you are the priority … rest and replenish your stress. Reach out to us for the other things .. we’re a phone call or text away! 💕

Thanks Elaine – I’m so fortunate to have everyone to count on.
I just read your whole blog.. the other day I read just what I saw when I opened it. I didn’t realize it was your last entry . What an emotional story to be told and so personal. I found myself crying at times. I had no idea that you had gone through all of this. You are such an amazing woman with so much positivity and strength. I love you Aunty. Thank you so much for sharing your story. You are a Lodigiani , you got his 😘😘
Thanks Trace. You’re right, I come from a solid Lodigiani base, and I am fortunate to have a tremendous support system, including you. I feel blessed.
Linda, Just finished reading your whole blog. I commend you for your honest reporting of this painful and frightening experience. Your honesty about your ebbs and flows of optimism, strength and courage are refreshing and beautifully worded. Thank you for inviting us in to your confidence.
Although I was disappointed, I didn’t think I would be able to keep up with a regular course this semester. Turns out, I found a better option. Thanks for your feedback.
