On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

Halaven, 3rd cycle August 14, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 2:49 pm


Chemo today.  Counts are good.  I had my MRI this morning and we should get the result tomorrow.  Mom is with me today and already one nurse got us mixed up.  Haha.  After the MRI we did a little shopping then had lunch at Crapplebees (intentional misspelling) where I had the worst quesadilla ever.  We are relaxing now, enjoying some snacks and looking at fashion magazines.

    Aww you guys look cute.

  2. Good to hear you passed the blood test! Haha, I can imagine the mix up. You gotta be careful, if your mother wears a bandana and you wear your wig, they might give her the chemo!

    Thanks for the update and congrats on the good news! Enjoy your visit with your Mom.

  4. Applebee’s is not exactly vegetarian friendly. Its to get giant alcoholic drinks that have as much alcohol in them as 1/2 a beer but enough calories for an entire day. (Or is that TGI Fridays. I get them all mixed up)

    • Yes, you are right. Both are good for giant alcoholic drinks, but TGI Fridays has more vegetarian food. I have to say that even my mom (who is not a vegetarian) had a hard time finding something on the Applebee’s menu. We were trying to squeeze lunch in between appointments and they aren’t many choices near the hospital. Next time we are going to Costco for a slice of pizza and frozen yogurt.

    Hey Karissa! Thanks for your post today. I meant to send you a message earlier in the day to let you know that I was thinking of you and wishing you well on the MRI…*Please* let us know your results ASAP tomorrow. Funny that you had a crappy lunch…we tried Taco Bell for lunch today instead of our usual fav, California Torillia, and we were not at all impressed. Well, at least it was cheap–ha ha ha! I did tell the kids that Mike used to eat there all the time…what were/are his fav menu items there? Glad you enjoyed some snacks…I’m gonna go and do that right now before starting my bedtime routine 🙂 Love and hugs, Jennifurr

    • Our favorites at Taco Bell are the bean burrito or the Mexican pizza. But the food at mostly any other fast food Mexican place is better. If you have any in your area I’d recommend Qdoba (try the tortilla soup), Chipotle, Moe’s Southwest Grill, or Panchero’s. Only slightly more expensive, but more likely to be made out of real food.
