Day byi day

I don't know that I really want to write or have anything to say.  The last 24 hours have been really rough.  I had a wonderful lunch yesterday, soup and sand, but as soon as I got home I got sick.  Take more meds.  Then went for radiation and they said I needed to start coming in at 12:30.  Well, we were just starting to get into a time routine, but, so went today at that time and then they say I need to see a nutritionist.  She said I needed to make sure I was eating what they wanted me to on a list they gave me. Came home from that and got sick, really sick, again.  My chest is on fire, my stomach is on fire, more meds, tums,  prylosec, xanax, prunes,  I don't know what else.  We are suppose to go to a BBQ on Sat and I am afraid I am not gonna make it.  And a very dear and close friend of mine gave me next weekend a two night 3 day stay at Harbour House on the beach.  I am suppose to go with Jenny, Kaela, Dennis, Jennys friend for the weekend before Kaela begins school.   I am so looking forward to it cause Kaela and I love the crab legs app at the Yucatan but I am scared I am going to be sick.  This radiation is burring the hell out of my chest.  Someone, please put out the fire!!  I am getting more and more tired everyday and so at 8 o'clock I will say goodnight.  I don't know if I can keep this up, if I am going to be able to get through all these treatments, please give me positive thoughts and prayers.  I really need them right now.  Thanks


  1. Hang in there Sis! YOu've got one week down . You can do this. Love you,

  2. Hi! Cancer has touched everyone's family it seems and I think your blog diary is a great idea that I will pass on to a friend as a suggestion to try. It may help her to vent. As for the burning after radiation rxs, try an aloe vera lotion. It contains no metals so it should not be a problem with other radiation treatments. And a lotion can be washed off easier than a cream before your next treatment. The aloe has a very soothing effect for all kinds of burns and I saw this tip somewhere on the Net. Of course, check w/ your Dr. first, but it might help. Congrats on one week down.

  3. Hi Janet: I'm a friend of Jules, and my mom has been dealing with cancer for 9 years. I wanted to wish you the best on your journey! Jules is week down!:-)

  4. Hi Janet. I saw a post on Jules blog.. that is how I ended up here. I so wish I could say or do something to help you through the nausea and the burn. You are so brave to tell your story.
    positive thoughts and prayers being sent your way.
