Topic: I've had a tough 6 weeks
2 weeks in hospital, 4 1/2 hour surgery, 2 days in ICU, colostomy and learning to take care of the bag. etc. Diet still not back to normal, but now able to eat some solids and keep it down. Supposed to start chemo today with a new (to me) cocktail. Anyone had taxatier and carboplatin? Hospital called me this am because I was scheduled to start at 9, but the insurance pre-cert wasn't done yet, so they'll call me again when they get it.
I started an anti-depressent while in hospital, and I think it's helping. Tom started one, also. He had a mammogram but was told that the lump was merely fatty tissue, not a tumor. What a relief, one issue at a time is enough. He complained that the mammogram HURT! It was hard not to laugh at him, because I knew it would, but he had no idea.
Thanksgiving was great, saw all my kids last week, and my grandson, too. Had the feast at our house, but I didn't do any of the cooking. It's great to have a family that enjoys cooking. They all pitched in. We've made a start on Christmas decorations. I'm so glad I started my Christmas shopping early, because I haven't been out to the store in weeks now, but I think I'll have plenty of time to finish my shopping.
Yes, the roller-coaster ride continues, but one day at a time, I believe I'll get through it again.
I've missed you all. God bless you!
