thrift outfit:Tan with Silver Dots { hi y'all! I'M BACK! }



hi Everyone!  Oh ya, that break was well worth it.  I am ready to roll and to get back into the swing of things in Blogland.  Radiation is about half way done, and I am feeling so much better, with better meds.  But listen to this: this scarf was pointed out to me by my keen thrift shopping daughter while we were shopping in June at the Bountiful, Utah Grand Opening of Savers {the one where they awarded me the $100 gift card!!!}  I love this scarf because I think I could wear it year round, depending on what I layer with it.  Feels so great to be back.


What are some of the prizes you have won?

AND ...YA CAN'T SAY "you"!  LOL. LIKE SERIOUSLY THE SHOES, SCARF, SHORTS, ...vhat?
 





 

PS.  I HAD TO WEAR THESE DIAMOND STUDS FOR ABOUT A WEEK.  MY EARS HAD GONE FOR SO 
LONG WITHOUT ANY EARRINGS, (during chemo) THAT I HAD MY LEFT HOLE START TO CLOSE UP ON ME AND
CHANDELIER EARRINGS WERE MAKING IT HORRIBLY WORSE.  thank you.

Radiation For Weeks



If it isn't one cancer treatment, it's another.  Radiation is suppose to be symptom free but, it has ALREADY knocked me on my keister!  No new photo shoot for today's post as I had planned.  Radiation is hard on me but, not as hard as chemo-deemo!  So I must take a break from blogging for a few weeks or so.  I so hoped I would not let this stupid cancer stop my blog.  But the time has come, dagnabit, that I need a break to deal with this new daily radiation. ...urgh!


Simple Sequins
is the home 
of
"Fashion item Friday"
however,
I am not up to blogging or posting or commenting or hosting.   
So  
"Fashion item Friday"
will be
on hold
for a week or so, also.



Yes, gratitude is at the four front, for each of you great bloggers and your wonderful blog posts!   I estimate I shall be back around the beginning of October, for sure.  I wasn't suppose to have side effects but I do have some and since it is daily, {Mon - Fri} the symptoms don't get a chance to catch up; ...nor do I.



Do you guys EVER feel like you need a break?
EVER?
  

I will be back!
LOVE TO ALL Y'ALL!!!

Slower Paced Weekend







hi Everyone!  Yes, I took the majority of your words and advice and had a restful weekend.  I stayed at an even pace and didn't get too tired and most of the swelling went down because I was drinking water all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Yay!  My appointments at the Huntsman went very well.  My doctor pronounced that I do not need any further CHEMO!  I am done!  No more chemo is required, HALLELUJAH!  With the pace I was staying at all weekend, I can see myself getting more and more healthy as the weeks progress.  So I ain't making no promises but, I do see my posts getting to be more and more current and less and less needing to have repeating photos. 


 These two photos? 
I WAS ABLE TO GO TO CHURCH AND I WORE THE ARGYLE SWEATER AND ALL THOSE ACCESSORIES
BUT NOT THE JEANS!  I WORE A DENIM SKIRT AND THE TURQUOISE SUEDE HEELS SEEN BELOW
(MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SHOES!!!) 
and my hair is more like the top picture, except more white which I'm really loving!
  
 
Why didn't I get a photo of my outfit?
 I WAS TAKING IT EASY - - - AS Y'ALL SUGGESTED.  THANK YOU! (hug)

"Fashion item Friday" #43




As I have described all week thus far, that I am having a strange and awkward time in feeling better since chemo ended.  I have had some parts of my health return to pre-chemo status but in other areas I am worse; worse nausea and worse pains in my feet, legs and torso.  Swelling is a common side effect after chemo and it is hitting my legs; very uncomfortable after about 30 minutes at the computer.

So this weeks "Fashion item Friday"
is short and sweet and to the point. 


Instead of sitting at my computer so much I have found that I can still communicate with several of my followers that are also on Instagram.  I can post on Instagram fairly easy. My Instagram account: @simplesequins

I will still post here on Monday, Thursday and of course Friday {for the blog hop}. Very grateful for all of you and your patience is such a God-send.  I appreciate your friendships during this phase of the treatment and your faith and prayers in my behalf.  It is all so sweet of you.


Things will get better.


"Fashion item Friday"
will still continue.  
It will just be a bit sparse for a while.
AS IN A COUPLE TO THREE WEEKS OR SO PER MY DOCTORS RECOMMENDATION.

Sure Appreciate Your ...






Since the chemo has stopped, I have had better energy.  True, but it comes in sections or spurts. I am finding myself back in bed.  It is so strange.  I spoke with my nurse and she advised me to be patient with myself.  She said "It could take up to a year to feel like you did before this all started".  Does that frustrate me?  Yes! Yet, so many of you have told me to relax and rest and that is why I am saying I sure appreciate your friendship and support!!!

We are having our "Fashion ITEM Friday" tomorrow, 
but it might look a bit different.  Just saying cuz my blogging days are really 'taking a hit' more than I expected.  I am still a cancer patient.  I am still having treatment {radiation and infusion of herceptin} I am still not at full form.  chemo is hard on a human and it has stopped, but I can still feel the weakness as if I still have been getting it.  Cancer is weird and chemo is nasty.



I sincerely wish I had more to offer today but ...ya.

All y'all are so great and fun, thank you!
SEE YOU TOMORROW!
