Sorry for my long abscence!
I apologize that I have been Missing in action, but I have been busy. It has been wonderful. I have been able to grocery shop without having to wait for my husband in the car, because walking through the store is too much for me. I have been able to help with house work. I am actually getting some energy back. I was afraid to say it out loud, because I was afraid it would jinx it. I was terrified it would all go away. Hubby and I were talking about it this weekend. He said that he noticed that I have some color in my face and that I am looking more like myself again. I told him that I had noticed it as well. He was holding his breathe that I would have another major set back. This has been the first positive break through.
I of course have over done my attempt to do things in my enthusiasm. After being so sick and idle for so long, it feels so good to get up and do the mundane house work. I have just been so excited to do dishes or cook a meal. It has been over do for me to put all our summer clothes away for the season. Then I arrange all our winter clothes in the closets for this season. I did most of that by myself. It felt so good to just do normal everyday things again. Hubby has had to remind me to not over do it. It is obvious that I over taxed my body, when I yelled at the dogs and my husband for nothing. I was struggling to finish cleaning the kitchen…I just was over doing it. I had to step back and realized I still have limits. I need to do a little every day and not cause another set back by over doing it. I am trying to enjoy the big step forward.
Our friend who has the Glioblastoma multiforme (brain tumor) just contacted us. He happily informed us that his tumor is gone.The chemo therapy has worked. He is still in remission. I thank God for his tender mercies.
Life feels good
