I met with Dr. Serious this afternoon and both he and I agree that me feeling so well so fast very well could be an early indication that the Xeloda is doing is stuff! Ü... Yesterday I went with Jim to the Orthopedic Specialist to check on his leg injury and thank God it's just a really bad contusion (bruise) They gave him a flexible leg brace to wear on his leg when he has to stand and that can easily be pulled down to the ankle when he is sitting and be taken off completely while asleep...Thank You all for Jim's prayers!
I felt so good yesterday afternoon Jim and I took an old dear friend of mine out for an early dinner so she could see I looked and felt great....that was the time Jim informed me how bad I looked at the hospital....I of course blamed it on the lighting! lol Who looks good in fluorescent lighting anyway?? lmaooooo After lunch we picked up my new meds...I was a lil shocked to see all the pain meds...morphine patches, liquid morphine for when I need instant relief and then a huge bottle of vicodin....I swear if I end up winning this battle with cancer it will be a miracle if I don't pick up a drug addiction along the way! lol lol lol I only take what I need, when I need it so no worries there! lol lol lol....Jim says I am quite entertaining at times!
Tomorrow I meet with my newest Doctor to join my medical army...I liked her the moment I met her...she see's the urgency to get started immediately... she shall now be known as Dr. Nuke lol! (Radiation Oncologist) I told all my Doctors when I was in the hospital and given the news that it had spread even faster then they anticipated that I am no longer going to wait for anything....they are all in agreement and that gives me a great deal of peace of mind! My hair should start falling out in 2 weeks, of course by then I will only have one more week of rads (radiation) but such is life huh? I truly am Ok with this...I hope the facial hair blonde as it is falls out too! lol....getting tired of looking in the mirror and seeing Elvis side burns...very blonde but very ewwwww! lmaooooo
We ended up going by Jay and Annettes house last night (both mine and Jim's best friends) it was a long day but I soooo needed to be out of the house and socialize although there were many a party my 6 days at the hospital! lol lol lol
Today we both rest and that sounds lovely! Thank you for all the heartfelt words of love and encouragement....I AM A WARRIOR! lol lol lol
