It's been a long, long time since I've updated my blog. I honestly don't know where the time goes, except I sleep a lot.
My treatment (chemo and radiation both) didn't seem so bad at the time. It caught up with me later - along with the overmedication they had me on. There were times I didn't even know where I was.
They stopped the chemo a little early because they felt I wasn't strong enough. They do know the cancer shrunk (quite a bit), but my appointment next month will tell us more.
I was taking physical therapy and doing great. Then my right leg kind of "blew up|" on me. I had a cyst behind my knee, which evidently drained down into my calf. It become very painful and red. I couldn't walk with it.
I've been sent for an ultra sound, a CScan, and an XRay. They were worried about blood clots. One report did show partial blockage of some arteries. I hope we learn more next month.
In the meantime, I am lazy, lounging in bed knitting, and taking plenty of naps.
Life here in the Heritage Park Care Center is not what I expected. It's a big place, with lots of patients and a large staff. The therapy "gym" is large and fully equipped. There is even a swimming pool.
I have drawn one antelope since I've been here, but haven't photographed it yet.
More later, I promise!
