Odds and Ends
Friday, March 22, 2013
The season of Lent is almost over- which means Easter!! The Lord will rise once again.
March has been a busy month; first I had my PET scan and got the results: I am cancer-free right now and I hope the Lord will help me stay that way. When my doc gave me the results, she said something that really ticked me off ''You can live your life normally again''. NORMAL? Excuse me? As an oncologist you should know that ''Normal'' does not exist after a cancer diagnosis. There is before and after, yes. But you can't go back to the way things were 'before'.
My doctor has not been the only one to say this to me. The vast majority of people are saying this. However, my close friends, thankfully seem to understand where I am coming from when I get frustrated about this.
On any given day I'd say my energy level is anywhere from 60-80%. And I'm definitely better in the mornings. After 3:30, my mind is basically done for the day. So it has gotten before but I've still got a ways to go. It could take months apparently. My concentration level and memory have definitely tken a beating as well. While the headaches are annoying, they are manageable.
*Sigh* so that's the medical side of things. School-wise, everything is good okay. Because of the headaches, I can't seem to be in front of a computer for too long but that really is my only complaint although my teacher is very understanding about this.
