I itch.

Yesterday, I finished my third round of Avastin. The side effects up to now have been minimal--only one. Hives.

No biggie, I'm getting through it, but I itch.

Last night I was standing in the bedroom, scratching my back. Hubby came to me and took over, scratching in just the right spot. It felt so good, my foot thumped wildly on the floor.

There's nothing like getting that itch scratched, is there? This time, I was armed and ready. Remember last week's post about the nails? Well, I put those babies to work. They claw those hives like nobody's business.

How do you like this picture on my post? No, it's not me, yet it does bear a close resemblance. Bald head, minimal hair. Still, I flat out refuse to accept those feet. Yes, I have cracked heels, but I cannot curl my toes like that. It's a lost art, I'm sure.

Anyway, all hives aside, I DO have my eyebrows back AND eyelashes. Get this. I even shaved my legs yesterday--we don't have men on our blog, right? If we do, I have totally scared them away by now.

Have a blessed day everyone! May your day be filled with pleasant scratching for the itches of your life!

Oh, Diann, I totally feel for you on the itch.(Though the whole thing made me laugh because you're so funny.) Having hives and itching is a lifelong malady in my family, from my dad to my sons. (Allergies. Ugh.)

I'm so thankful for so many things in this post, and continue to pray for you. And I don't think you look like the guy/gal? who is in the photo! (Although I had a roommate in college who could pick up stuff with her toes, which with my short, stubby toes, seemed like a great talent to me.)

Hooray for shaving legs! I remember how much I wanted to shave my legs in 6th grade, so it is cause for celebration!

Oh, rats, Diann, I'd hoped you wouldn't have the itching this time. But you did make me laugh. May the itching go away QUICKLY. I can't wait to see your new brows and lashes and hairy legs in Indy!

Thank you so much for your prayers, Crystal!! You have been such a great friend!! My husband can pick up things with his toes, too. In fact, I was so impressed by that, I gave that trait to Maggie's husband, Gordon, in Hot Flashes & Cold Cream. I'm with you, it's a gift. :-)

Sorry your family has a history of hives. And being guys, they can't even get the nails to help out. Maybe a good steel wool pad would work. LOL

Cheryl, so funny about the hairy legs thing. LOL!

Hi Jel--

No, I didn't get a razzberry through email. What is that?

At 3:04 PM, Blogger Crystal Mazzuca said...

Diann, you are amazing! I love that you continue to have a sense of humor through all of this. Gotta love appreciating the little shaving your legs!

Sorry about the itching...but isn't that what husbands are for anyway? ;-) Will pray that the hives go away quickly.

As to shaving your legs, I am happy for you...I think. It's a chore that I HATED doing but since I had MRSA in both legs that left bad scars, I can no longer shave. What a shame...NOT!!

Too bad you all won't be in Indy this weekend...will be in the 70s and sunny!

At 8:13 AM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

Thanks, Crystal! Hope you're feeling better, too!

Oh, the 70s sounds perfect, Ruthie! Hope you have an awesome weekend!

LOL, Jel! Tell your husband I don't think that's him. ;-)

I found the secret to cracked heels!!! The gal who does my pedicures worked for 18 months to remove my California calluses. But my heels continued to crack. Then she found a foot cream called Nordic Care.

WOW! From the first time I tried it, it worked! I now have the heels of an 18 year-old. Well, maybe not 18, but certainly no longer cracked. I can't believe it!! I'm bringing you a tube to Indy, Di.

Sorry you're all itchy, but GLAD you're feeling better and better. Yay, God!!

You may be the first woman I've ever heard be excited about shaving her legs.
Congrats are in order, I suppose?
Yay you! :)

At 2:31 PM, Blogger Crystal Laine Miller said...

Ane!! You need to tell us how to get that Nordic Care stuff. I need it for my hands, in particular. You can bring Diann a tube, but if you need to take orders, then puhlease, divulge your source.

I'm googling it RIGHT NOW.

At 2:38 PM, Blogger Crystal Laine Miller said...

Just an update. I hope I got the right stuff, Ane, but I found Nordic Care on and it's half-price there! So I ordered some. I have tried everything. Everything. Including a dermatologist.

What's one more thing?

Hope it helps you, Diann! :)Thanks, Ane, for mentioning it.

At 11:55 PM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

Oh, Ane, that sounds wonderful! I knew we were a lot alike, but we also share cracked heels?!!!! WOW!!!! We ARE kindred!!!!

Crystal, I hope that Nordic Care stuff helps you!
