Chemo Treatment!!

Hi all,

Well, my plan did not go the way i wanted it to...was gonna show you pictures, but when i got ready to take the most important 2, the camera battery will have to hold out on that post..

Wow, it felt like christmas time here yesterday...Linda (chef's mom) sent me some beautiful scarves to use to hide my bald head..and a puzzle book...amoung other things...i LOVE it all and thank you very much for it...

and I also got a package from York, Pa, from KKHHYYYRRAAA and her said from ur DWB family.....with lots of books and good smelling stuff....all kinds of candy!!! and Guess What, some of her famous floof....I let Rocky smell it and lol, had to chase it down, he had it and was gone...he also loved the treats..She also sent me a scarf, she said her Dog Nanny made me and its is beautiful...

Thanks to u all, w0w, u sure know how to make a person feel special!!

Today, was the 2nd treatment day, but i didnt get to have it...My platlet count is going down its postponed till next wednesday...He said if the platlet count is still down, we would prolly go ahead and do the chemo...Not sure what they are gonna do about this problem..I had a feeling this would b a problem...while i was there, i saw one of the other doctors and she set me up to talk to a cancer center patient navigator...Do u know what this lady did, we hunted me a wig....and hats to wear..will get a picture of the wig soon, when i put it on, i look just like my sister, BK!!! this lady's group meets once a month, and she gave me a schedule for the year...Next time, is talking makeup...(I hardly ever wear makeup), they show u new ways to tie the scarves around ur head..

Also yesterday, i finally got my new computer....Its a refurbished one and I have been paying on it forever....I havent got it hooked up yet, cause i thought i was to have the chemo treatment today...will hook it up tomorrow..I am using the keyboard, its, hard to make my big, clumsy fingers hit the right keys...i guess i will get use to it...

Thanks for all of ur concern, in here and in facebook...i do appreciate it and i KNOW I am not alone in this journey....



  1. wow, we are maybe first! And here I was...thinking my blog tracker was letting me down.

    DO GO to those meetings..they are a resource and an inspiration..lots of good information and a strongly bonded group of people going through similar experiences.

    Make up will help...your self esteem is important, and using the right colors and products will help keep your attitude (reasonably) good.


  2. How KHOOL to see it arrived!

    We are glad the contents met with the approval of ALL the important members of the FURamily!

    Khyra says if Rocky wants more, she'll be glad to send it even if it does mean The Dreaded Brush Fairy has to pay her a visit!

    Sorry today didn't quite go as planned -

    But then again, isn't that the theme of Life?

    Khyra and Phyll

  3. A new computer is always exciting. I bet it will go really super fast.

    Sigh, bad when you get all geared up and then there is a change of plans.


  4. Claudette ... we've been thinkin' and thinkin' about you. So sorry today's treatment didn't happen, but it sounds like it's on for next week.

    We're glad to hear you are getting lined up with resources ... and furriends ... and scarves and hats ... and even make up. We want you to surround yourself with anything and everything that feels nice and good and supportive. Including us. We're good cuddlers. Even from a distance.

    Can you feel us snuggling close? We're clean and fluffy and even smell good right now!

  5. We are so glad that Khyra's mom reminded of about this blog. We aren't on Facebook and missed not knowing how you are doing. Too bad about the cancellation today but now you can work on getting that new 'puter going. Mom says she doesn't use a lot of makeup either but when you need a good pick-me-up feeling, knowing how to do it right can go a long way to putting a smile on your face. We agree with others that it is good to go to at least some of those meetings. Sharing your experiences will be a great benefit to both you and others.

    How sweet of Chef's and Khyra's moms to send you those nice pressies. If Rocky needs more sibe floof, there is a lot more of that here.

    Take care.

    Woos, Phantom and Thunder, and mom Kathie

  6. Hi Claudette - great to get pressies from peeps :)

    Look forward to seeing your pix, seen a few of other facebook friends - with wigs, without, and then when their hair is growing back. They look nice in the pics, just a different appearance. I'm sure I would look terrible - but that's just it, I guess. It's all about self-esteem and self-image, so I reckon that group will be pretty useful.

    Good luck for next week with the platelet count. xx

  7. Hi, Claudette!
    I know it is a difficult journey but I can see you are taking the best of it... and that is very important!
    All those presents sure are pawesome!
    And you got your new computer! Small keyboards are not funny... well, that is what my mom says!
    I am sure you will get used to it soon!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  8. Hi Claudette!!! You are so right...we are right here with you...we're keeping you in our daily prayers! So glad you have some support right there in your town...the beauty advice they offer now with cancer is amazing...when you feel you're looking good, you feel so much better!

    We're so glad you got pressies!!! And a chunk of Khyra floof? That's very valuable...Lacie has offered to run over to Eastern PA and remove a little more floof off of Khyra...with her toofers...she's so accomadating!

    Good luck gettin' that new puter set up!!!

    Hugs and kisses,

    Mumsie...aka Marilyn

  9. So good to hear your update, Claudette. Can't wait to see pictures of you in your new finery!
