Well yesterday I had my a CT scan and completed my last rads to neck and brain. I'm grateful that is over. They did rush out and pulled me into the ER to let me know that I had 2 blood clots on both lower lungs. So I was admitted to Exeter Hospital overnight and I'm on blood thinners right now....hoping to get home today.
Good to find this now before we flew anywhere for sure. And I'll be taking shots in my stomach every day to prevent clotting in the future. Apparently that can happen with cancer I didn't realize that. But I've been less mobile moving around with my legs being numb. . Apparently that can happen with cancer I didn't realize that. But I've been less mobile moving around with my leg so that explains part of the issue. I felt a heaviness in my chest, but thought it was from the nerve issues.
So as we get ready to fly out here Tuesday to a fully functional hospital across the Yuma, AZ border into Mecico where a wing is dedicated to cancer care. It will be round the clock care for 28 days, it's called CMN Hospital of if you would like to google it. We have all got our passports and are still on track for her to say departure :-)
There's not much in this world that can keep me away from the chance of coming home cancer free! So as we get ready to fly out here and we get our ducks in a row with everything we need to do we are still on track for our departure :-) My friends and family have made sure we will get ou!
I just want to say that my husband has been absolutely phenomenal and if there were ever any thing in a relationship that needed healing, this situation has completely healed our relationship. It's ridiculous when he think about the things you used to argue about that were nothing. And I definitely feel amazing love, tenderness and devotion that is overwhelming at times. I know he will do everything for me to save me. And it's a wonderful comfort to know we have not given up.
Here's a photo taken two years ago one week after my double Mesectomy when we went to Huey Lewis concert :-) it was a fun night and it's been the key to keeping it going living in the moment every moment that comes.
I wish all the amazing moms in my life, who are showering me with love, the best Mpther's Day! 😘
