Our Kitty Skye looks pretty awkward giving herself a bath. I'm also feeling awkward - the port feels weird under my skin. I currently have 5 incisions in my chest, making sleeping on my side (preferred method of sleep) almost impossible. Let's see... which side is least uncomfortable? The infection has calmed down on my left side so that helps! I have 6 down pillows and a new squishy rolled one - that Carol Hansen gave me. I form them all into a nice little nest & get some rest. I seem to need a lot lately.
I'm a mom, wife, student, genealogist and I love my lap top. I like to laugh and read. And be with family. I did the breast cancer thing in May 2008 - lumpectomy, nodes, chemotherapy, radiation....
Dec 2008 was my last radiation but alas, alak, those tests are not to be trusted!
This past Fall I had a bulging disc in my back. A miracle "pain." An MRI in Sep 2009 showed the disc and... cancer. Did a bone scan and found more. I've broken my right arm - (pathological break a couple weeks ago just for interest), had back and brain surgery most recently and will begin radiation soon. Apparently, the breast cancer was lurking around in my bones all this time and no one figured it out! Good thing God is on board and is taking great care of me... us... everyone:)
