Round Two is Complete

Posted on June 10, 2008

I completed round two of my chemo treatments yesterday. That means I’m halfway done –Yea! I’m feeling pretty good today. Just a bit weak and my head feels kinda puffy like I have a headache or something. But not too bad overall. I have only had to take two anti-nausea meds and that was just because I just didn’t want to take the chance of getting sick.

On a crafting note, I’m working on some dishcloths with center scrubbers made from recycled plastic bags. I also experimenting with these green plastic sleeves that the grocer puts lettuce in.
Green Netting
I’ve saved up several of them in hopes of using them with cotton yarn to to create a durable dishcloth with the green netting crocheted together with the cotton. I’ll post it as soon as I’ve successfully completed the project.

In the mean time, I’ll be recouping for a few days at home until I return to my real job. Thanks everyone again for all your warm thoughts, hugs, and prayers for me.
God bless and of course, happy green crafting to all!

    I’ve had some success using the net bags – I cut them across to make loops about 1-2″ wide & then link them together to crochet … the ‘knobbliness’ of it works pretty well for pot-scrubbing.

    I was thinking about this method too as it’s similar how I loop my plastic bag strips to make plarn. I may also try long thin strips of netting held together with cotton.

    The second suspicious spot was gone after my MRI. The original tumor was removed successfully though. All is going well at the moment with my treatment. Thanks so much for all your prayers and support.
