Girl, you better hide your heart, your loving heart...

I'm back from my CT/IVP. Unremarkable experience except she took a ton of shots of not only my left ureter and kidney, but my right one as well. So that kind of freaked me out. Are both my kidneys compromised? I started on sulfa this morning. I'm just exhausted. It took all my strength to go out there, have the test, then go to the bank and stand in line forever. As a treat, we went to our local new agey shop, where I bought a couple of books on alt cancer treatments. I'm still doing chemo, but I want to make some changes in my life too. I have an eight-week series with a nutritionist that's tentatively set to begin May 20. We'll see how that all goes.

The cards say...a broken heart....

My friend K with metastatic melanoma got bad news from her brain MRI. The mets are "progressing," which means the end is in sight for her. Why her? I don't get it. God, take me instead. She has so much to offer the world. K is an amazing person who has built homes in post-Katrina NOLA, has spent nights on the streets and in shelters with the homeless and has truly been a witness for Christ (now that is not a phrase you'll see me throw around, believe me.)

Sigh.
