Hello Again

Added: Friday, July 17th 2020 at 7:32pm by riverglorious

It's been a few months since I've logged in via the computer. First I was too tired on account of the chemo. Eddie has been using it to finish his book, which I hope will be done soon and get printed.

I already finished the first chemo sessions with the two medications, and had started the 2nd, Taxol. They are supposed to be 12 weeks of chemo, but I've only had 7, I think. In all this, I've had 4 infections, thrice or 4 times I've had my white blood cell numbers too low for chemo.

So far, I'm on my 3rd week w/o chemo on account of a tooth. The back molar is split down the middle, and My oncologist, Dr. Tirado, said she cannot let me continue with chemotherapy until that tooth is removed.

She is concerned about COVID here because restrictions were decreased and people took that as equal to lessened risk and stopped physical distancing and wearing masks. So now we have an increase because of Father's Day and still to come another increase from the 4th of July weekend. I have to be extra careful. Personally, I believe this virus is here to stay, and the "herd immunity" is inevitable. Still, I'm being careful.

So, I now have neuropathy. I fell last week. I thank the LORD Jesus Christ that the sofa was right there and that's where I landed. I didn't even notice that my feet were asleep. You see, they've been affected. And my pointing finger on left hand. So I got up from Eddie's easy chair too quickly, totally forgot that I'm supposed to wait, pause, make sure my feet are okay and then walk. I just rushed  and suddenly tumbling onto the sofa.

But, on the other hand, my hair is growing back. Only it used to be brown with some patches of gray or white, and now it's so so salt and pepper! More salt than pepper! Yikes! I thought I wasn't vain, bbut I found out I sure am. I was weighing almost 150 lbs, and am down to 127, and trying NOT to lose more! And my eyebrows and lashes are growing out white also. Unless it's blond. I look like a ghost. Hopefully will get a corn-free eyeliner. It will make me feel better, somewhere! :D

And I've been crocheting again, since i can't do much here. It's "up there". I'm working on it for AJ, just in case Some Day he marries and has a baby girl.

My, this is long. So much to say, but I think this is enough. Cancer is no joke. But, I've learned so much about the LORD Jesus Christ, I've learned to trust Him more and more. As a family we've grown closer, and not because of the lockdown/curfews, but because we're praying more and praying together. I did pray to please pass this cup from me, but now, I say, "Thy will be done!"

That's it for now. I'm tired and my hands hurt. I didn't think this would be so difficult. Thanks for reading this.

Something I thought was really funny!

My heart goes out to you...


Dang!  Ain't you gots enuff crud to deal with?  A broken tooth?  Yikes.

Indeed, I do. But it’s is what it is. Can’t worry about it, that will sap the strength out of me.

hugs love and prayers

Thank you!!! I need them!

I can remember what my mother went through with her rounds of chemo.  I watched the changes in her almost overnight, plus she was doing radiation at the same time.  She never got neuopathy but another friend I knew got it in her feet and suffered with it on occasion.  Hang in there Ambar.  God bless you, my friend.

Thank you, Dani dearie. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚


Wishing you the best.

Stay strong Ambar


Hugs filled with love and prayers go out for you.


I hope you will start doing better than you are and get back to normal. But you know there might be a reason the Almighty wants your hair and eye lashes to be the way they are. Just leave them alone and leave it as HE has it my friend. Will still be praying for you. Bro. Doc


By the way I didn't want a gray beard and moustache but at about age 55 that is what I had. Not my hair on my head. So I just leave it the way He wants it. Take care my friend. Stay cool and safe. Bro. Doc

Trying to stay cool. Thank you

You are beautiful no matter what color your hair is .... Hugs to you on this journey. Praying soothes the soul.


Always in my mind rg. All the very best.
