The back bone's connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone's connected to the head bone,
Now shake dem skeleton bones!
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones.....
For some reason, I had this song going around in my head as I waited for the results of my bone density test.
After chemo this morning, I made my way to Doc Esther to get the results of the bone test and the echo. Echo is fine enough..... my back is another story. There were a lot of numbers running across the screen, but the bottom line, it is time to look into it deeper but not time for extra meds to offset some of the Arimidex (Anastrozole) effects.
All I can tell you is that I can't stand for more than 5 minutes without excrutiating pain.
Nope, I haven't mentioned this yet ... you had to listen to just the canzer stuff, why zing you with another issue?
Anyway, MRI w/contrast is scheduled for early tomorrow morning. After work, I picked up the recommended dosage of Calcium 600 mg / Vit D 400 iu / Magnesium 400 iu (Caltrate). She also wants me to do some strength training.
If I had the strength, I would be doing it!
A friend of my sister, Jackie, gave me a gift called the pure fitness ball. She uses it all the time so I'm gonna do it too. I can't wait to meet her to get all the tips she has learned during her own journey.
(just need to get it blown up)
My friend, Sally, gave me a wonderful gift that I keep at work. It is THE BEST thing in the world. It's funny to see expressions from people as they get closer to my desk ... a small humming sound that you just can't pinpoint! Besides massage, it heats....
Nurse Rose took care of me today with the Herceptin. I sat right next to the machine that holds all those wonderful heated blankets. Plus, I had my blue afghan that Jane made!
I've gained 3 pounds :( My blood pressure was a little high. Doc wants me to get a flu shot this year.
Did you know I'm in my 10th month of treatment?
