POPS and More Chemo

Last week my husband was out of town on business so my friend, who lives in Indiana, came to stay with me.  We thought I might be sick from the last chemo treatment and she would take care of me while he was gone.  But since the chemo didn't work out I was feeling great so her and I had a wonderful week together.

The first day my Mother came to the house and we all drove to Tulsa and met my sister at the Tulsa Zoo.

Oklahoma City has a new outlet mall and of course we had to do some shopping.  I will be spending a lot of time at that mall in the future.  I loved it!!

We visited a resturant called POPS in Arcadia, Oklahoma.  They have over 500 different soda pops available.  My Mom and her friend Chuck met us there.  Chuck, Thanks for buying us dinner.

Here is my friend drinking a soda I picked for her called Bug Barf...hahaha.  It think it was a Kiwi and Pineapple mix.  She liked it.

We got to spend some relaxing time outside.  The temperature was in the 90's but the mornings and evenings were perfect for sitting outside for a little girl talk.

Now I am preparing to try another round of chemotherapy.  It is scheduled for 10am on Wednesday, Oct 5.  I will be given 3 different chemo drugs this time.  If all goes well I will be cutting my hair short on Thursday or Friday....that is if I feel well enough.

Here I am contemplating what the future holds.  I am ready to get chemo started and over with.  I am so tired of thinking about it and wondering how bad it will be. 

Check back when I hope to talk about post chemo. 

Until next time,

My thoughts will be with you all the way. I will be away from the computer a lot over the next month as we are at last moving from the UK to France. I will though pop in from time to time and see how your getting on. Chin up and keep well, hope all goes as planned this time round. Hugs Diane.

What a great day you had at the Zoo and Pops..Pops is so fun and I haven't been to the Tulsa zoo in years. I need to put in on my list! Praying that everything goes well tomorrow!! Maybe a different combo won't be as bad as the first round...I'm praying for you!!
