We had the nicest Christmas! Everyone was happy - pleased with their bounty... White Bluffs Elementary adopted us and treated us to a mighty fine holiday :)
Max got this photo of me while I was still asleep - before all the festivities...(you can see that my left eyebrow is missing as well as all eyelashes...gone! Oddly, they've fallen out since November while there is some definite fuzz on the sides of my head - I actually have more hair than one of my brothers-in-law! Yea!!!
My absent port site is feeling much better. My sister-in-law was concerned that it had been taken out too early. Nope. It's feeling so GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!
Dr. Droesch surmised that my bruised jaw occurred after the anesthesiologist gave me more anesthesia (I was moving around while lightly sedated and lifting up my arms...) and then my airway collapsed. He had to hold my jaw up to keep it open so that I could breathe. My sister-in-law says that sometimes when a patient's airway collapses, they end up with broken teeth, etc. as the anesthesiologist rushes to insert a tube. I guess I got off easy, considering.....
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:)
