Been trying to get the pain and nausea balanced. No fun to have to barf in the bucket. Spent the weekend at the Hospice house to try to get this all stabilized so I don't feel the pain and avoid the nausea. Will be home Monday(tomorrow) with the new routine on the medications.
Part of the house was painted while I was gone. Thank you to all those that helped.
lisa: most days i know which day it is. today is thursday. heather came home and surprised us. she will be here for a few days. i'm feeling really well.
heather: mom is pretty confused sometimes. but she's still here and usually has an idea of what's going on. she's tired and unsteady but still walking around. she says some pretty funny things. makes us all laugh and keeps things light. she's so wonderful about all of this and is hanging in there so well.
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:)
