I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I feel for all of you in the hot areas, it is raining here and a balmy 60 degrees - would prefer it to be a tad bit warmer though.
Things are continuing to go pretty well, although I can't help but face the reality that I have to go back eventually and continue with the chemo. I HATE that knowledge, but for now I'll push that back to the 'ole brain as best as I can.
I am not all symptom free though, my feet are bugging the crap out of me. We knew that tingling in the hands and feet were a side effect of one of the chemo drugs (Cisplatin), it was just a matter of time. For me it did take a while though. It started slowly, where the tingling was noticeable around chemo time and then it has progressed (about a month ago) where the tingling is 24/7 with it being the most annoying at the end of the day. That part makes sense of course. The tingling is strange... probably closer to the feeling you get when your feet fall asleep, but not exactly. They aren't numb and I still have sensitivity, but the tingling is annoying.
Thankfully, my hands don't feel nearly as bad as my feet, they just tend to get stiff. Unfortunately, we have read that the tingling can end up being a long term side effect and of course we won't have an answer to unless I come off this drug. And of course, if it gets really bad in my hands I will definitely consider other drug options with my Dr.
The other issue is just upset stomach stuff... not necessarily nausea... just "off". It's hard to describe and some of it may just be in the 'ole "head"... now I can add being mental to my list. Kevin insists that there is a lot that I don't remember with my short term memory. I guess I don't remember not remembering so I think I'm just fine (lol).
But I'll take all of the above considering that I'm not throwing up every day... so now...
Here are a couple of wedding cards that I created for some friends whose daughter is getting married next month. I wanted to offer a couple of different styles for them to choose from, but I enjoyed creating them both.
I don't normally do insides except for a sentiment but these are extra special.
(Stamps use on both cards are Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend.
Until next time.
