Our little Sammie girl started her chemo & steroid pills this past Monday and so far she’s doing very well. The chemo pills are pretty scary because they come with warnings that we need to wear gloves when handling them! If I can’t even touch them what the heck are they doing to my fur baby!? I was a complete & utter nervous wreck when we gave her the first dose – I was so worried she was going to have a bad reaction. The Dr said if she was going to have a reaction it usually happens within the first few hours. As you can imagine, I was watching her like a hawk…several hours later I finally started to calm down and by the next day I had regained my composure. Clearly, it’s a good thing I didn’t have any human children ;-p
Six doses in and she’s still acting like her normal, playful self. The only difference we’ve noticed is her drinking (and peeing) more often. The Dr told us that is to be expected with the steroid. I’m relieved that she’s not had any adverse reactions and I can only pray the meds will do their job and help my baby live a long happy life ❤
In other news, I went to WW yesterday and I was down 1lb which is a minor miracle since I baked cookies last week and of course had to ‘test’ several! I’m so close to hitting the 10# mark I really, really need to buckle down!
I’ve been finding it hard to get back into my sewing room…I guess I was feeling down (and sorry for myself) with Sammie’s diagnosis but I forced myself to get back in there last night and again this morning to finish the backing for my Granny Cabin top.
I know this doesn’t look like much but it’s one vertical seam shy of a completed back. I pulled 14 low-volume FQs that have been sitting in my stash for far too long and sewed them together in a random layout. I finished that last seam this morning before the football games started. Now all I need to do is cut batting, get it basted, quilted and bound – Ha!
That’s about all for now…have a great rest of your weekend!
