ABC's of Me, and other random bullets, brought to you by Blogger's Block

1. We had an appointment Tuesday morning to get Gabby's roadmap for this cycle... It lasts 57 days this time (weird!). She goes for IV chemo every 10 days starting today, and ending on day 41 (so total of 5 times), and has one lumbar on day 31. Then she's off from day 41 to 57!! No meds at home except the bactrim she gets Saturday and Sunday (a "yummy" grape one she likes).
Love.It. :D

2. I went out last night for a 4 miler. The first half mile was fabulous. Around .54mi in, I had a STABBING pain in my ankle, here:


That's the outside of my right ankle, BTW.

Like, stopped me dead in my tracks pain. I tried stretching a bit, but really... how do you stretch out an ankle? Not sure, so I stretched what I could. Jogged another .1 mi, and the pain came back. So I walked it in. Grrr. WHAT. IS. THAT?!?!

I finished out my cardio on the elliptical, which didn't hurt but was H O T. I pretty much dislike sweating, but...


3. ABC's of me...
(A) Age: 32

(V) Vegetable You Dislike: Artichokes freak me out. They're FURRY!!!

  1. Sounds like good news for the little one. Wonder what's going on with the ankle?

    Enjoyed your ABCs--Boxers are great dogs, but you're right, with all their energy, wait for a house!

  2. I like artichokes but really with enough butter what isn't good?

  3. Weird thing about the you wear orthotics? One of my friends had a thing with her ankle and had to get orthotics. ( insert shrug here )

  4. Have you noticed that people in SoCal tend to flake more than everyone else? That's how it seems to be.

  5. A bit of good news for little lady, but sorry to hear about the ankle pain???
    I'm with you on the chores, why pick one when they all stink!

  6. I hope that ankle gets better! So weird....

  7. I hate it when people flake, too! I have some friends that I just know they will flake so if we have plans for something I have stopped even actually thinking I have plans. I won't even bother to shower and get ready to go out because I know it won't happen. I guess some are reliable in their flakiness!

    I had no idea artichokes are furry!! I may have to rethink them.


Comments rock.
