the beat goes on.....


Recommended Posts

At last some good news, I had my radiation mapping done yesterday and my tx have been reduced to 16. A Cdn report shows no added success by having 34 tx over 16 so my dr is going the 'short' route........YEAH!!

Because of my sob problem he is also not radiating my shoulder (concerns about compromising my 'good' lung even more) which in turn means I can keep my port. So we have no hunt and peck for veins and my radiation time has been cut in half, yesterday was a good day!

On my way into Boston yesterday (about a 45 mins trip on a good day) I was wondering how on earth I was going to make the trip everyday for almost two months, well I guess someone was listening to me and changed everything up for me. Sometimes life just falls into place!

My sob is still front and center, had some blood work done yesterday and will find out today what, if any, changes will be made. There has been no improvement in the last week, huge strides the week before but stairs are still a major challenge and my walking speed is back to snail pace at times.

Where did my independence go?????????? I'm not used to being 'taken' to the grocery store (a first in many weeks) or anywhere else for that matter, and it pisses me off that everyone seems to be driving my car except me - maybe I'm just feeling out of sorts because this seems to be going on and on with no end in sight.

Okay that's my end of year whine over with, next week will be a whole new beginning.

Happy New Year everyone,
