Another week

Writing this on my Kindle while lying in bed, so not sure how it will come out!


It's been a week since I wrote about choosing "determination" as my word for the year, and while I am sorry an entire week's gone by without writing, it's all part of being determined to take care of myself.  My second week on methotrexate hasn't been pleasant, BUT the silver lining is pain is down. I'm just really sick, but this will pass.  I managed to get out and about with Zack one day this week, and I treasured it, choosing books together for his summer reading list....So many I'm going to read, too!


I used to love to write, and I miss hearing from people who read what I wrote, and I am determined to come out of this, whenever it may be, stronger and with more stories in my heart.  Behind the scenes, things are percolating, but instead of ten full pots of soup on a fancy Wolff stove, I've got something simple in the crock pot slow cooking.  Equally yummy, easier on the cook!


Thanks for your comments, both here and on Facebook.  You have no idea what they mean.  They mean a LOT and won't be forgotten.

  4. Methotrexate is a nasty drug in the beginning, my mom and sister have both been on it, but for different reasons than you. I am sure your body will adjust to the dose, just take it easy in the meantime and remember we are all thinking of you.

  9. Sorry you've had to spend so much in bed, but you still sound "determined!" And you sound a lot better. I'm glad the meds are helping and I'm sure you'll beat the sickness side effects. Wishing you all the best for a good summer. xoxo

  10. Hi Lori...It's good to hear how you are coming along, especially that the pain has lessened. I know you are still sick and I hope with less pain you will become stronger. Are you able to do any beading at all? what kind of books do you like to read? and would you send me your mailing address so I can send you a little thing..I think of you often and I pray for you to get better. You are too young to spend so much time being ill. Take very good care of yourself..and don't forget to post when you can ...Love Deb

  15. I've lived "determined" several times in my life. Determined to be the best I can be. . .determined to be positive, merciful, cheerful, patient, etc. Patience is still on the workbench (and so are the others on occasion). . .I love "determined." Love you, too, sister!

  16. Hang in there, sweet lady. You are doing good. It will take time to find your energy again. It took over a year for me to recover from my full hysterectomy... And that's okay. Please take your time.
    Love you-

  17. Lori - I'm always in awe with how much you accomplish while facing so many challenges. Determination is definitely a perfect word. You demonstrate it daily. I often ask myself on those 'bad' days, "What would Lori do?" True story. You're such an inspiration for many that suffer and struggle with chronic pain. Thank you for being such a light in the darkness, a generous and caring soul that touches so many of us out here in the blogosphere and beyond. I truly thank God that you're in my life. I honestly don't know what I'd do without you. Rarely are we blessed to find someone who really 'gets' us. I appreciate you listening and assuring me all will be well. <3
