It's been a hectic few months around this house but we are finally seeing some progress.
The latest scan shows the tumor is almost gone. Still some there but we won't know if it is active cancer or dead until the doctors can do a PET scan. This will take place in a few more weeks. (guess you all know what I want for Christmas, huh?) I know a lot of my recovery is due to all the prayers that were sent to the Big Guy on my behalf and for that I will be forever thankful to everyone!!
My Hair is coming back in !!! It's just soft little stubble right now and, sadly, most of it is gray,,,but it's hair!
The doctors did find a vein that is almost totally clogged with a blood clot, so now I get to give myself a shot in the fat part of the stomach twice a day. Good thing I saved a bunch of that fat!!! The shot itself doesn't hurt, it's just the idea of sticking a needle into yourself that's creepy.
Kevin and I are headed to Arkansas next week for Thanksgiving with all of my sisters. We've really got something to be thankful for this year! We'll be thinking of our brother who is in New York helping restore power or whatever else needs done.
I feel so lucky !! Great friends who've supported me with food and hats, tea and meals, family willing to basically give up their life to stay with me and run me to treatments every day (yes, every day downtown Houston!) sending a silly card to make me laugh or flowers to cheer me up or fruit to get me to eat. Most of all I can't forget the hubby who has plodded on every day to work or keeping up things around the house, listened to my angry rants (yes, there were one or two) and let me cry on his shoulder when I needed to.
I know I'm not done yet with this journey; it's been an eye-opening experience though.
