It ain't easy being Jim sometimes! lol

Just letting you know that Jim can slip up from time to time too..........after all he's human AND a man! lol

Last time I saw Dr. Serious he told me to call him if I was experiencing any pain in my chest or if I started coughing. He said let him know right away...I listen to my Doctors now so when I started that God awful half gag on the air I'm trying to suck in and chocking on the air that is trying to leave my body......I thought UH OH....maybe another dreaded lung tap was in order....So on Wednesday when I met my friend Kathy and her son for brunch, I called Dr. Serious charge nurse and told her what I was experiencing, she said she would run it past the Doctor and get back to me...now with my history of everything getting out of control at a very high speed...I like the fact that Dr. Serious follows me very closely.

So I call Jim and tell him as soon as he gets home from work it's off to the hospital for a chest X-ray.....so as soon as the test is done I'm already talking to Dr. Serious charge nurse to let her know the slides are ready for viewing, she calls me back with an all clear! Whewwww! I'm not fond of lung taps, but if it keeps me here a lil longer than I'll do what I gotta do right?

Jim's mistake? saying to me on the ride home....."Happy now Ms. Paranoid?"....Now I turn the evil eye on him and ask him if he just called me paranoid.....he was already looking for a place to hide.......kinda hard in a 2 seater pick up truck....I say, "Paranoid?" I have every right to be paranoid since I did everything the right way the first time, mastectomy, 4 months of chemo, Tomaxifen for almost 3 months and IT DIDN'T WORK, my cancer went from stage IIB to Stage IV.......during treatment...went from just the boob to my lungs, my brain and my spine....I don't think he chose his words wisely! lol He didn't think so either! lol

His next mistake.........trying to appease the crazed, menopausal woman who he promised forever with, thought he wouldmake up for the word paranoid to get me some of my favorite ice cream Deans Moose tracks..in vanilla ice cream...........instead he comes home with chocolate moose tracks.....Oh the injustice of it all....Oh well, It's a crying shame.......I really liked that man!!!!!! lol lol lol


Started my 4th round of the xeloda oral chemo this morning, but at least my rad burn is healing very well. Hope this xeloda works it's magic and I also get the all clear on the booster meds that really helps the xeloda to kick in high gear...oh happy day...oh happy day!

HA! Lets see you could get creative with that ice cream...make him eat it! ;-) And then he can get you the one you want! HA! Well...he owes you big time now! HA!  So glad you were ok!

kirkbyj05 said...

Yeah!   As if!   I know what you mean though Kim.  Sometimes fear makes you very ultra sensitive and  all the weariness that all the treatments lump you with.  We both know he was making light of it in the only way he knows how.  Still....men will never be able to weigh we women up....we are so up and down with our menopausal symptoms its like paranoia.  But we understand where we are coming from since we all experience it too.  I am so very happy to hear that it was a false alarm and that you didn't need a 'tap'.  You certainly have a special man walking beside you. Hugs....Jeanie xx

sybilsybil45 said...

Thats men for you lol  sorry about the icecrean though!!!  So glad that you didn't need the "tap"  Have a better day today  Love sybilx

ab45yui said...

For all you go through, you bring a smile and chuckle to me most times I read your entries.  I can just see the expression on your face, when your Jim let that one slip...LOL.  He probably was trying to find air at that moment, LOL.  Oh my.  Hang in there and I hope he'll figure out the Ice Cream dilemma all on his own, and come back with the right kind.  :-)

poor fellow
and he had the chance to redeem himself and blew it!
I'm so glad the xray was good.
It sounds like Dr Serious is taking good care of you.
How are you doing with the side effects of the chemo? YOu sound like you are feeling pretty good.
As always , I hold you in my heart and send you a virtual hand to hold in the night on the other side of the screen.
Love
Marti

pippa1116 said...

maybe he will come up with something else today to redeem himself.  but there is no paranoia now.  everything has to be addressed "as is" from here on out....
take care
hugs

swferstl said...

LOL...Typical, just typical! Nice to know Jim's human. ha! Never heard of DEANS moose tracks. I'll have to look for it. Guess I would've made the same mistake. But if this is this man's worst mistake, you're blessed! :-))))) hehe...
I'll be keeping you in my thoughts today! Cross fingers, knock on wood, and prayers sent! :-)
hugs, sher (wunzuponatime)

candlejmr said...

LOL....ahhh, Jim must not have been thinking too clearly!!  Bet he won't make THAT mistake again!!! (lol)  I agree with you, you're not paranoid in the least...you have a reason to be cautious...and you are only doing what the doctor tells you to do....and Jim knows that.  But your story sure made me laugh this morning!!!  (lol)

((hugs))

lanurseprn said...

LOL This was funny! I'm sure Jim won't say THAT again! You have every right to be cautious. You're not dealing with a cold here, after all.
I love your wicked sense of humor!

emabecmar said...

My Jim use to say silly or should I say stupid things like that when I was going through chemo and radiation. Notice I said (he use to say), lol. Had to set him straight, lol. I know I have said it before, but I'm going to say it again. You are amazing. All you have went through and all your going through now, you still keep it together, you are truely an inspiration to us all. (((((((hugs)))))))

Glad the trip turned out as it did, poor Jim...think before you speak.  Honey you are the only one who can feel whats going on inside of you...do what you have to. No one should say anything really...I keep remembering that old indian saying..."walk a mile in my mocassins".  Sending good wishes at ya...love, Sandi

s0ngbird1962 said...

"Oh well, It's a crying shame.......I really liked that man!!!!!! lol lol lol"


OK, so I totally laughed out loud on that line....lmao.  

Many prayers that these new meds will keep you around alot longer to be with your man/family/friends.  You are loved.  Has Jim come out of hiding yet? LOL

My lovable idiot husband told me I was NOT a princess this morning....WHAT WAS HE THINKIN?

aimer said...

I love your ability to find the ironic humor in life. tHere's this old country song that has a lyric that goes "men, you can't live with them and you just can't shoot 'em!" It always cracks me although the men in my life don't understand why I find the song so funny!--Shera

mztishgray0726 said...

Please tell Jim that its okay from Tish.  Sometimes regardless of what those lovable guys do when some of us women have the "BIG M" they will never be left alone.  If a person stood in a spot too long and was being too nice to me I might get mad.  Why?  I menopausal.  So there.  Not only that I have lupus.  So there plus there.  (giggle).  Hugs. http://journals.aol.com/mztishgray0726/all-things-are-possible-2/ Tish

mztishgray0726 said...

Oops.  I forgot to add that you have to tell him also that on the ice cream note.  He can't be forgiven for that.  He can be forgiven for being a man.  Not for messing up Ice cream though.  That is some serious, serious business. (giggle) Tish

ajquinn354 said...

Sorry dear, but I'm reading your journal site and laughing.....Jim sounds just like all the typical men in this world.....we sure love them, but they can come up with more things that tick us off, lol.   Now the ice cream is a different story....I wouldn't be available for any loving for at least a week, lol.  Glad your rad burn is healing for you dear and that you get the clear on the booster meds.  Keep your sense of humor always Kim, can get us through anything.   Have a good weekend dear....Arlene (AJ)

gandsbrock said...

Vanilla moose tracks vs. chocolate moose tracks - are you sure HE was the one who made the mistake??  LOL!  Just kidding!  Glad you didn't need another lung tap.
Take care, Stephanie

jmorancoyle said...

    I agree with the last commenter. Now who made the mistake? Take care and enjoy your Moose Tracks, which is my favorite, too. Although I prefer chocolate.
