Tuesday Update

Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well today. I didn't post yesterday and I apologize. My student gets backed up so she can only post when she's able. So if she's a little late posting, that's why- she's a student and has other obligations as well. So thank you again Rebecka for posting for me.

Other than seeing the wound care nurse and people coming to visit, I haven't really been doing much. The attorney's came yesterday and the will is close to being done. There's a couple of questions I have to ask one of the attorney's when she's back in the office next week.

Geez, I can't seem to remember who came to visit me yesterday. Today Karen and Susan dropped off a meal from the university. My parents enjoyed it. Nancy just got back from Tajikistan and she stopped in to visit. My therapist also came by today, which was very nice of her. Tomorrow soup will be delivered again from Kai, through a service that she found. I think N.O.T. (?) is coming by with something for us to look at. On Friday I think Kim was going to drop off her reports and also maybe stop in for a visit.

I have been eating watermelon, so that's a new addition to the diet. That's about it but I don't feel like I've lost weight. I do have what I think is good news- my left arm is looking less swollen. It's draining a lot, so there is a lot of dressing on my arm. Still, I can see a spot that a couple of weeks ago was really red and had a couple of spots that looked like they wanted to ooze, but now it's dried up. I'm hoping that means the chemo is working. I'll go in for treatment again this Friday and just see how it affects me. 

I was really lazy this morning and didn't do much. When I found out my earliest appointment wasn't until 1pm, I was very thankful that I could lay around and rest until then. I think my first appointment tomorrow is at 11am and I'm a little disappointed. But maybe that means I'll get myself up and moving around sooner. People think I am stronger, generally speaking, and I guess I do too, which is a good thing. I am going to take Eddie to his therapy appt, so we'll get our first spin in the wheelchair. That's about it. Life's kind of boring when you're an invalid and not out doing things. 

I hope you're having a good evening and Love To You All!
