Update on life

Friday, August 31, 2012

My sister got an MRI a couple weeks ago because her chest hurt. She was thinking that she might be getting pneumonia from the chemo but the oncologist said to go that day to get an MRI so they could see if she was having a valve relapse or some such which I guess happens with chemo sometimes. Anyway, they couldn't detect any of her tumors!! So she stopped chemo 2 treatments less than they had intended and has a surgery consult. She's getting a PET and then they will be doing surgery in the next couple weeks here!! It's moving very quickly.

I'm working 7/7 as I have my regular 9-5 M-F and I work the Renessance Faire on the weekends and labor day. I am going on the 5th to get xrays done and have a consult with my neurologist on the 13th to see how my cervical spine is doing. If it is doing well he will refer me to Physical Therapy to help strengthen my upper body back so I can start being more autonomous. It's a pain not being able to lift anything. Fortunately my sister's 10 month old is very good, but I still have to lift and carry her for diaper changes and such. I babysat the baby for the first time without someone else there who could lift her and I hurt all night and the next day... definitely too much for me still! I am hoping very much that my neck has grafted or whatever it's supposed to do and I haven't hurt myself. The surgeon said if I did I would KNOW it but with my high pain tolerance I'm not positive as I don't know if my twinges and aches are "KNOWING IT" or not... it doesn't help that my cat keeps sitting on my shoulder either LOL!! I need to stop that behaviour.

Okay, I'm getting back to work but wanted to let anyone who was interest if there is anyone what was going on with me :) I'll be back more regularly after September.
