Catching Up

Hello! I know it’s been over a month since I’ve written, and people are asking why I haven’t been blogging…there is no particular reason other than I just haven’t felt much like writing. A lot has happened during the last month though…I’ve had chemo flu over the last two cycles, (I’m having it now), I got sick for a week with a really bad cold, which flared up my asthma really bad, then I fell down the front steps taking my puppy out, twisted both ankles and caught myself with my hands, which in turn hurt both of my wrists. But everything got better within a few days except for my right ankle. Went to the ER and turns out I sprained it pretty bad, tore some tendons, but luckily didn’t break anything. So I have been on crutches over the last month. My ankle is slowly starting to get better, but I still can’t put full pressure on my foot especially the heel area. So I have been pretty much home bound with my ankle elevated for the last month. I couldn’t drive anywhere because it was my right ankle. I just started driving this past Monday, I had a doctor appointment in Austin.

Also I did go back to the eye doctor and got re-examined, got a new set of glasses, they worked for awhile, and once again, they stopped working for me. I called my brain radiation doctor and asked if my vision changes could be from the radiation or the tumors, cause these vision changes didn’t start until after the radiation, so he said he can tell me more after the MRI, which I did yesterday, and I see the doctor for the results tomorrow. I sure hope everything is OK with my brain. But this vision fluctuation needs to stop, cause I can’t keep going to eye doctor and getting new glasses. I sure hope we can figure out what is causing this.

My eldest daughter Chelsie is on her way to India right now to attend a yoga retreat for a month. I’m nervous and excited for her all at the same time since she is traveling solo. But that girl LOVES to travel and has no fear. I can’t wait to hear all the stories when she gets back. We had a family dinner this past weekend so everyone could see her before she left, and we will have another one when she gets back. She may not be able to text or call us once she is there, but she may be able to email. We will see. The place she is going to is in northern India at the bottom of the Himalayas. Should be a beautiful place.

Well that’s all for now…I’ll get on here real quick tomorrow to give the results of the brain MRI. 🙂
