The Stacey Report

May 10: Shhh! Don’t Tell Stacey…

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on May 10, 2006

Oh, all right, I guess she already knows about this.

Aside from being unpleasant, nauseating, and physically and emotionally grueling, chemotherapy is also really, really boring. So at my request, Stacey has created an wish list called the Chemo Survival Kit; check it out if you would like to send Stacey a little something that you know she’ll love. (She’ll be adding to it as treatment continues… whether she likes it or not!)

In other news, my sister is not taking my calls this evening, so we’ll all have to wait until tomorrow for a medical update. The other night, after her weekly hormone and Procrit (ouch!) treatment, she reported not sleeping well and feeling “freezing cold” all night. As many of you know, Stacey tends to run hot (bring a sweater if you go to her house in the winter) so that’s a big change. It’s not too surprising, given the extent to which they’re messing with her hormones right now, but still pretty unpleasant. The next day was fine, and there was some very upbeat instant messaging going on earlier today, so she seems to be doing well now.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have some other fundraising schemes in mind, but I’ve decided to focus on one at a time. Many thanks to those who have pledged their support to my walk in the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life.” The response has been so generous that I have increased my pledge goal, so there’s plenty of room for your donation, too!
