A rough week.

Round three was pretty bad for Katie. I went home on Thursday because she thought she was doing okay. Tonight she called and asked me to come back after church tomorrow. She's really tired and feeling sick and dizzy. She's been able to walk Giada, but she may be overdoing it.

One thing that has made Katie feel better is eating red meat. She had a roast beef sub from Jersey Mike's on Wednesday, and she really perked up after eating. I always felt more energetic during chemo if I ate anything with protein, so she probably has the same cravings.

Meanwhile, getting older sucks. I have had a burning, stabbing pain in my thumb that is very likely arthritis. I'll ask my doctor about it, and will probably need an X-ray. I'm wearing a brace, which helps, but it's getting hard to do my daily tasks.

I have managed to start my Christmas crafting! I finished a cross stitch ornament and made candle holders inspired by a craft magazine.
