So I've been slip-slidin' away....it's been a busy, busy week with doctor appointments and testing and running all over town trying to get everything ready (here at home) for starting chemo. One such trip included a jaunt to Springfield Missouri, because I just had to get to the fabric store and Kmart. :) So the boys and I took off with my MIL and guess what? Keegan drove the whole way...on the open road...with high speeds and big rigs and blind spots, and all that.
Yikes. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous, and I am trying to not stress out, although I was completely stressed out (don't tell him I said that). He's gotta learn somehow.
The trip also included a little bonus thrifting in which I scored some brand new Target thermal curtains (the creamy fabric below), a single blue striped curtain and 12 orange napkins and hold the phone, two brass trays, and that bottom one is pretty heavy. I told you brass was really growing on me, just not the shiny stuff, mind you....it's got to be olden brass. I'm not sure what I'll be doing with the creamy panels, but that blue curtain has got summer tablecloth written all over it, and I adore the orange with the navy, don't you?
While at Kmart, I found these cute little woven slingback flats, and I love the inside stripe too. I love when they do details like that. And really, with Spring a week away, I'll be wearing these very soon!
I've started the oral cancer drug (called Mitotane) and it's making me a little crazy in that I'm not thinking straight and blurry vision...in essence I'm a little more air-headed than normal. Luckily I have not been sick though, they gave me nausea medicine to help with that so I am happy to report it's working. I also started a vitamin regimen...I've been reading all I can on beating cancer and take a look...I've gone from just a daily aspirin to thin my blood so my graph doesn't clog up to this:
