Not A Good Afternoon- Evening- Monday, September 14, 2015


I would say the chemo is whipping my butt for the moment. Or something is.
For the time being.
Headed back to bed.

Margo Smith – It Only Hurts For A Little While 1978

The Ames Brothers – It Only Hurts For A Little While (1956


I could find a song about getting better that I liked so I found this one. I like both versions.
I add the videos and the quotes after I posted the brief comment.

    Hi Sarah,
    I’ve just popped over to your blog after reading that you were in hospital in a comment elsewhere and I just wanted to pop over and give you my love and blessings through this. I have had some very trying medical problems myself and it can really get you down and it’s hard to know quite how to respond when your life is in the balance. I have an auto-immune disease and went through chemo 18 months ago. I haven’t looked back since then, although I’ve just recovered from bad bronchitis. T%ake care xx Rowena

    1. Rowena, Thank you for this wonderful comment.I really appreciate it and can’t thank you enough.
      Any auto-immune disease is enough for anyone. Add to it Cancer and Chemo OR ANYTHING and we have a War to fight.
      Winning it is everything.
      Take it easy, As you know, it takes forever to really get over bronchitis.
      I will stop by your blog as soon as I get a chance. I am way behind answering my comments and reading anyones blogs.
      Love and hugs.

        Take care. No rush. I know what you mean about being determined to win. I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from going with my daughter to her auditionj but that said, I also knew that we don’t have that kind of control over what happens either. I just did everything I could to stack the odds in my favour and thank goodness, they came through. It doesn’t always work that way. Take care and best wishes,

        1. Ro, No it doesn’t. I am missing a lot at the park and over here on Rolling Meadows. It is really hard sitting in my chair listening to the work radio or watching the workers drive by here on RM. I am part of the Restoration Project and I’ve been stuck at home.
          I am glad you got to see your daughter at her audition. That was IMPORTANT.
          HUGS to you.

    2. Let me know if I can ever help..I am a great listener.

        Thanks so much, Sarah. I’m pleased we’ve hooked up xx Rowena

    3. I have looked and looked for your comments. I couldn’t remember your blog name and I wasn’t even sure about the name…….I just remembered our conversation.
      All I had to do was go through my Top Posts.
      I am glad I found you again. FInally. Things ARE much better.
      How are you, Rowena?

  2. May you have a good night sleep my Dear Sarah. Lots of love your way – Shine

                    5. Actually, YES I am. Worn out from a doctor visit this morning. All is good.
                      It wasn’t as hot this morning. First morning I did break out in a sweat by the time I got to the truck.
                      Love and hugs,

                    6. Vibrant says:

                      Oh really glad to know that Sarah 🙂
                      It’s nice weather over here as well. Some rain–as autumn approaches.

                      LOve and hugs <3
                      Anand 🙂

  4. I can relate, Sarah. Feel better, my friend! I’m sending lots of prayers and healing thoughts your way. Hugs MW

    1. MW, I was expecting to feel like this so It came as no shock. I will get through this. I have many times before. 🙂

    Rest my dear blog friend. I’ve seen my brother-in-law go through this. You will come out of it. Yaz

  6. MeRaw says:

    Hope your day has been a little better.
    Love and hugs x

    1. It wasn’t unil a few hours ago. Then maybe a bit better. Hard to tell.
      I just needed to get up from the bed for awhile. HUgs Melanie

  7. aFrankAngle says:

    Chemo as a way of doing that … so hoping Tuesday is a better day!

    1. Getting better, I think….

  8. Erika Kind says:

    Hope you can recover, Sarah! <3

    1. I will. I just hope it’s SOONER rather than LATER. LOL

      1. Erika Kind says:

        So do I of course <3

        1. Smiling at that.
          What is your weather like there? It is a mite dreary here.

          1. Erika Kind says:

            We have this special warm wind wich only blows in Central Europe. It is a storm acutally and the temperatures are rising with it. So the weather is good and warm but stormy 🙂

            1. Interesting. The rain has slowed down here the last few days. So have the intense storms. We get a little rain everyday. Usually a couple of times a day but well under an inch. Danny said park drive still had water on parts of it when he left yesterday.

              1. Erika Kind says:

                Hope the water goes back soon, Sarah!

                1. It is finally starting to.

  9. Gen says:

    I hope you slept well. Please keep us updated when you have the strength. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. Xxx

    1. Gen , Oh Gen, I knew what to expect but I was hoping I was wrong. All is good,

      1. Gen says:

        I hope it’s upwards from here. How are you feeling today?

        1. I can’t answer that like I want to. Less just say really bad..My body feels like it weighs a ton. Every move I make is an effort.
          I am starving but not able to eat much. Restless.
          It helps that I have been like this before. I know it will end….Sometime.

  10. Feel better my friend❤️

    1. At this moment, I do. A bit . Hugs

  11. Luz says:

    Blessings to you.

  12. New Journey says:

    rest…….good night…

  13. hirundine608 says:

    Many blessing showered on you. Chemo is very poisonous …

    1. Thank you for this. Yes, It is but it beats having cancer. 🙂

  14. Hi hope you feel ok sweetie!

    1. Lynz, Not ok but I will get there. <3
