A busy month February 28, 2013

I feel like I haven’t had much time for the blog lately; it’s been a busy month.  We had a Valentine’s day dance party where we took turns with our dance game.  We were really surprised at how well the kids did with following along with the choreography.   My aunt, uncle, and cousins came to visit that weekend too. We had a full house but lots of fun.  My boys really enjoyed playing with my cousin’s 2 kids and I got to meet my sweet little second cousin Parker Joseph.  Ethan also had his first sleepover this month.  One of his friends spent the night with us.  The boys had so much fun and I could hear them chattering away for about a half hour before they fell asleep.  So cute.

I’ve been struggling a bit this month with fatigue and sore swollen feet.  I see the doctor again next week so I’m definitely going to talk to her about the fatigue.  She told me before that it’s likely being caused by anemia and the cancer itself and probably wouldn’t be helped by B12 or iron.  I know there are a few drugs to treat anemia but they have some serious possible side effects.  But maybe changing the timing of my medications, something in my diet, etc could help.  We’ll see.  Let me know if you have a suggestion…
