First Blog

First of all, my name is Sandi. I was diagnosed in May with Hodgkins Lymphoma. I found out 2 weeks prior that I was pregnant. The chances of these two occuring at the same time I have learned are somewhere around 1 in 1000. I have heard from many oncologists and my high risk OB that it is something rarely seen. My OB has only had 4 patients that had cancer and were pregnant at the same time. This is after 20 years of working as a high risk OB. I have a very curable and treatable cancer. This blog will be a record of all that I go through, how I am feeling and what I am doing. I have posted a blog on myspace for awhile and will be posting all the blogs I have made on there since May then will start updating here. I hope that I get some feedback and comments. I love hearing from people. I have a family. I am 31 and married for over 11 years now. I have 3 daughters ages 10, 7 and 5. That's a little background on me. Now for my blogs. This all should keep you up to date as of everything so far.

Bad day today. Well starting last night really. I'm waiting and waiting to hear back from this doctor's office in St. Louis. They aren't rushing though and I am miserable. I'll have to make a 3 hour drive to get there when I finally get the appointment and treatment can't start until they see me. I can no longer sit up in bed without first feeling strangled then immediately going into such a violent coughing fit that I almost throw up each time. I am scared to just get up to go the bathroom. I have progressed to being this awful in just the past month. It's scary. I want to get better but know I'll only get worse until treatment starts. I am feeling very depressed today. I am tired of feeling sick. I am tired of coughing until it hurts. :(

Yikes Sandi, this sounds scarier than heck. I had no idea.

I'm glad this is all behind you now.

Have a terrific day. :)
