Sunday October 19th

aRt of my friend Sally Smith, lives in my home now

Ok my breakfast..but the color version is gone, trying again tomorrow

lunch was chips & chili cheese dip my BFF Marcia made for me, so GOOD


OH my gosh..did I say no more?? I don't think I should have..but tis true yesterday was a bad poke day, they didn't schedule my blood test, so I went right to the treatment pod, they called me in..said they needed blood test on my kidneys first, but they would do it ,they'd take it when they stuck for the IV line..that went well..but NOT blood would come out..the IV was in correct would drip so they put Saline through to make sure the vein just wasn't goof,no blood, so they called the tech to come up & draw it stick in the vein...oh hurt,kept pushing in, pushing in I asked Rich to come hold my hand Tech said my vein was rolling..Finally gave up then she stuck again..one stick , no hurt..got blood..that came out soooooo slow.. Kidneys were fine..of course we got me a big old bruise , and had to do a new mix because my weight had changed(^)

  3. I am hoping you check your blog messages today. Going to leave this here to remind you (nag you).
    Deenz, remember the last time you caught a cold your Doctor was miffed cause you didn't let her know right away? Well, she told you that you were supposed to call in right away if it happened again...so.....ok.....tapping foot...(yes I love your photos as always and LOVE the Nancy fonts)...where's the Doctor's number?!! Call! ASAP!

  9. So happy you have your last treatment. I pray that this will take care of all the yucky cells and they will not return.

    What a beautiful big pink bow at the Breast Cancer center. We are getting ready to have our Breast Friends event but it will have to be in Nov due to the date of our last event.

    Sending prayers and blessings your way!

  10. Dear Deena, I cannot believe so much has happened with you since I last checked in...I am so mad at myself for letting so much time go by without looking in...You are so precious! God bless you Deena, you are such a blessing to me and so many others. You know, reading with you last year began my coming out of a deep depression...part of the reason I have not written is I have been studying for my P&C agents license (insurance) and have been unable to think of anything else! I am now back at work, working for a friend who bought her own agency...I am so blessed! But reading with you and about you and how you think (so optimistic) (you made it seem okay to be happy) well you got me started back into this life. My family may never know you, but they will always benefit for the fact of my getting back up. I thank you for that and this must be how God uses us, putting the right person in our path at the right time...I think of you often, and hope to meet you in person someday...God bless you! Yes God is always good. Love, Maridon Bradley

  11. Deena,

    Thinking of you tomorrow and praying that all will go well. Hooray for the last treatment. You go girl.

    Take care, my friend. You are wise to stay away from all the trick or treaters and just have the Grands. Praying for you.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  12. Oh my gosh Deena! It's been so long since I visited. I've been over at Amys' and read her post. I've been feeling so cranky and mean and downright bitchy. Nothing in my life is equal to what you've been through. I'll be counting my blessings and saying prayers for strength for you.

  13. Hi Deena...So much time has gone by since I last stopped in, but please know that you have always been in my prayers. My dear Mom needs so much more care, so I haven't been blogging much at all.
    I will be thinking of you and sending prayers your way that everything goes well for you tomorrow.
    Love & Hugs~

  19. Sorry that Friday exploded on you. This is Monday, the day we've all been waiting for with you. I pray that this is the last ordeal you have to go through. But I also have no doubt that if you do have to cope with other things you'll do it with the joy and grace that has inspired all of us. We love you.

  21. YEAH for the last treatment! My hollyhocks came this weekend and I can't wait until it's time to plant them. I am sure in Texas it's different, you think? We don't have snow. Usually just a couple of freezes. Stay well and away from germs.

  23. I've been praying and sending love rays to you. Did you get them? A bluebird came and got them in his beak. He was looking for a nest in Singing Woods. But he liked YOUR nest better.
    Love, Debra

  24. Ouch Deena, I'm so sorry they had to bruise you like that. I have the kind of veins that roll all the time too.

    I love those hens and chicks. You are so cute in those pics.

    I'm glad they give you ladies treats. I'm so glad you are finished with that part of treatment. Hugs (((hugs))) Kathi
