Dr. Kris Update!

I had a quite day today at home. No kids today so I got some rest and some more thank you cards sent out today. It seems like if I don't do any for a few days I get way behind. So I am all caught up for a little while anyway. I went in a received a neupegeon(sp) white blood cell boaster shot today. I am so thankful for those if I didn't get those I think I know I would be back in the hospital after each time of chemo. Yeah for the shot!

Anyway, I also had an appointment with Dr. Kris my Natural Path today. I don't know if I told everyone but one of the question I asked Mitra on Monday was why I am having back and bottom pain again. I told her it had gone away after one round of chemo but that I was having back pain again. She said oh, it is probably from the shots stimulating your bone morrow in those spots. So I asked Dr. Kris because that didn't sound right. He checked me out and said no you have a rib out. So he worked on that with out adjusting me. Oh, it feels so much better! Another question I asked her (Mitra) and the chemo nurses is why I have been itching. It has been driving me nuts since last Friday and I hadn't had any chemo. They both said it wasn't relate to the chemo. Chemo wouldn't cause itching. So I asked Dr. Kris because I didn't know what else could be causing the itching. He tested a couple of things and then said the chemo is depleting something I can't remember the name of it but it is depleting that in my body. It is common with the HER2. So he gave me some medicine to produce more of what my body needs and I should stop itching in a few days. So I will keep you posted and see if it works. Have I already told you how much I love Dr. Kris. I swear he knows everything! I am sure not everything but I am so glad he is my doctor.

OK, I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I keep trying to post a message and it never ends up showing up. So I will try again today! Hopefully it works! We've been gone for almost 2 weeks to Idaho (my brother got married) and so I missed reading all your updates. So good to hear how well things seem to be going for you and the family. We think of you often and pray that things continue to go well for all of you!

Hi! I have missed seeing you dropping/picking the preschool kids off/up! It sounds like you are lucky to have more than one opinion to help you through this!

Kamden has the show'n'tell bag. The letter next week is "r". The theme is Rudoplf the Red nose Reindeer. The shape is a cylinder. The color is red! She can bring something special of her own if she wants! She is doing great! I love how she sings out at the top of her lungs! She knows every word to everything thing! I asked her today to tell me about the story I read to her. She told me many details about the story! That is something kindergarten teachers test on in August! We will be learning how to write last names when we get back from Christmas break! I am proud of her for how well she is doing! You should be told!
Have a great weekend! Hey, we could be in the same ward! You never know?
Hang in there!
