Is anyone else starting radiation in October? I was supposed to start today but it took them so long to do the x-rays and more markings that they mercifully postponed the treatment until tomorrow--which is October. I will be having 30 treatments over six weeks.

petite1: I don't understand why they don't do the rapid test first and then they can send off and wait for days for the PCR. It's crazy that people have symptoms and can't get a definitive answer for days! I've had five tests and with three I got the results within 24 hours. Hoping you feel better soon.

Petite1 - I'm glad you are negative and hope you feel better real soon. It sounds a little like what I had the end of December. Not fun!

Kamboka - Yay! You got your surgery scheduled! I'm sorry you are having problems with your MO. Are they the only ones around or is there any other doctors you can get in with? Can your DC MO give you any suggestions or someone down near you? I know that sometimes these doctors are connected with other doctors around the country.

I have been working long and stressful days right now. Add to that is that it's been snowing every few days. Ugh! It's supposed to snow 2 to 6 inches tonight and tomorrow and then again on Thursday into Friday this week. I'm so over winter and ready for Spring!

Kamboka - We got a couple inches of snow yesterday, are expected to get a couple of inches tomorrow, and they are calling for snow or snow showers every day through Sunday. Ugh! They are predicting it will get warmer the 2nd half of February. I hope so. It was 12 degrees when I woke up this morning. Brr!

Tomorrow I get my 2nd dose of the vaccine.

petite1: Glad you are feeling better. I have four pre op appointments on Wednesday and then I start my liquid diet on the 15th. I'll sure need prayers for that. :) The surgery is March 1.

Kamboka - Not fun but try and remember why you are doing this diet and good things to come after the surgery.

Petite1 - Soak up that warmth for me! We just had about 2 inches of snow and it is currently 25 degrees. I'm so sick of winter. Hoping we don't get the snow storm this weekend that they say is a possibility.

My 2nd vaccine shot went well. When my coworkers had their 2nd shot, about 80% of them had bad fatigue, headaches, chills and bodyaches, so I expected that too. We had both sets of vaccines being given on Tuesday. I was getting Pfizer and others were getting Moderna 2nd vaccine shots. Well, I was fine the next day (yesterday). I think I was a little more tired and achy last evening but not that noticeable. I talked to other coworkers and the worst side effect any of them had was a headache that went away with Tylenol. And it's a good thing I was fine because two of my coworkers called off sick yesterday (hoping just colds and not COVID) and we are in the middle of an audit.

Still no side effects and the soreness in my arm went away yesterday too. My only problem was that my coworker came back to work yesterday and was very sick with what she thinks is a cold. I tried to avoid her as much as possible but it's hard to do when she keeps coming into my office and touches stuff and then hands it to me. Devil Lots of constant handwashing, hand sanitizer, and mask-wearing yesterday...even more than normal.

Kamboka - I had to LOL at your comment. I would have a big list of foods to eat too and none of them would involve vegetables! LOL.

Tomorrow I'll go back to the shop and get a mini cake to eat. I'm doing Haagen Daz tonight. I have a favorite place for homemade pies but it's downtown. Not sure if I want to drive downtown but I'll decide in the morning.

Kamboka - Right when my coworker started showing symptoms, she went and got a rapid COVID test and it showed negative. That was apparently all the proof they needed that it definitely wasn't COVID. She was just as sick on Friday as she was a couple days before. I just totally stayed away from her and her office as much as possible. Thankfully she is off today and hopefully feeling better by tomorrow. I will be praying for you that you will do well on the liquid diet and not be tempted to eat other food.

Last week and this week, we have had or had forecasted some form of winter precipitation every other day. It's starting to warm up so instead of snow this week, they are calling for ice. Ugh! I can't win. My parents just got home from Florida. A stressful 2 1/2 day journey trying to dodge ice and snow storms. Thankfully, they made it home safely. I was working on planning my Disney trip this weekend and that makes me happy. I'm hearing rumors of possible quarantine after the trip so I hope I don't have to cancel it again. :(

I called a business in near my mom in TN. She said they had three inches of snow with a forecast of eight more. TN is not a big snow state so I know they are completely shut down. It's been rainy here but in the high 60s/low 70s.

First day of diet and I was so hungry around 4. I remembered they said if I was desperate I could have a bouillon cube. I had some powder chicken noodle soup that I heated up and throw away the noodles. I had to throw quickly because I love noodles. It was so nice and soothing. I'm in the bedroom now so I won't go back to the kitchen. One day down and 13 more to go.

No jello yet. I can have it after surgery. I did find a protein soup that was recommended for me during chemo - Unjury. The shakes are actually more protein and less carbs than the Optifast. The soup tastes really good so I will be having that at night. They have two flavors: santa fe chili and chicken. The warmth of the soup helps curb my appetite. Two days down and 12 more to go!

Well, yesterday, what they predicted would be a just a slushy accumulations and nothing on the roads, turned into 4 inches of slippery and very heavy snow. {Sigh} The good news is that they are expecting the high temperature to be 43 today!! Woohoo!
