The last few days have been kind of a blur. They have gone by really fast! I have fought the urge to graze and won! But have not really felt like blogging. I have been spending some extra time in the evening watching TV with Pooh and trying not to be depressed. As I have said before, I am an emotional eater. Except for anger, which makes me want to clean everything around me, just about every other emotion makes me want to eat everything in sight! I have had yet another emotional upset, but so far so good (on the eating part anyway). For those who do not know, my Pooh Bear was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer two and a half years ago. At that time, they gave him a year to live. Transplant is not an option and neither is surgery. With radiation, chemo and a lot of prayers, he is still with us and doing pretty well. He went to the doctor again on Tuesday for blood work and his tumor markers are way elevated again. Which either means the tumor is growing or metastasizing to some other place. :( They also found a hernia near his navel that they think is serious enough to do surgery on. Surgery! Are they kidding! The man is not currently receiving any kind of cancer treatment because his platelets are way too low. He could bleed out with any bump or fall, yet somebody over there thinks if they give him a few (temporary) platelets they can do surgery on him! This concerns me. But then so does the possibility of tumor growth and spread! :( Anyway, we go back on Tuesday for CT scan results and their decision on whether they will do something about the hernia. Praying for good news. ~sigh~ One good note, my emotional roller coaster has not prevented me from continuing to exercise. The gym yesterday was great! We have also added two more people to our walking group at work! I hope all my spark peeps are having a great week! Your prayers would be greatly appreciated.
