Hi friends! Thanks for all your help, messages, and prayers! They mean the world to me!
If you haven’t heard I have cancer – you can read the story and updates here.
I’m working so hard to be fully recovered but I’m not quite there yet. My energy is slowly returning but I still have chemo brain making it hard to focus and concentrate. Most of my cancer pains are gone – just occasional in my abdomen but nothing like the persistent pain I had before.
My neck is giving me the most trouble – a constant nagging pain that started during my chemo treatments – I thought it was a side effect but I found out last month it is osteoarthritis, probably exasperated by the treatments, that along with my creaky knees that don’t want to bend when I go down the stairs. My threshold for pain is so high now that I’m getting used to it.
My next scan is coming up already! If all goes well I’ll have it in the second week of April. I’ll let you know how it goes. Praying for a full recovery.
I’m barely working part-time and still need help paying off my large medical bills. I received a 20% reduction in my chemo bills which is a help but they are still more than my income last year.
My oncologist is part of a big medical group and they are threatening to discharge me which means I won’t be able to go to my doctor who has been with me from the beginning and knows all my history. I’m hoping I can get my scan next month before they do that or that something will change before then.
I may possibly be selling my website to pay the bills off – if the price is right – I’m in talks with a website broker who may be able to help me but things are going slow. If you know anyone who might be interested please let them know. Serious inquiries only, please.
My next update will be in April after my scan.
I’m not out of the woods yet so please keep me in your prayers. I know I’ve been asking you to do that for almost a year now but I’m convinced your praying is part of my success.
Thanks all! Big Giant HUGS XOXO
