Ok so I last left off with the boys getting ready to start school. I was set on getting back into writing regularly, going to the gym after I took the kids to school and deep cleaning the house. Did any of that happen? Nope. I have a tumor in my left leg. Up in my thigh right where the thigh and butt meet. It started hurting like hell. It was so bad that I couldn't walk. I was stuck in bed for about a month :( Then I ended up having to have surgery on September 27th. I had a small bowel resection and 7 tumors were removed from my intestines. I was in the hospital for 5 days. I know have a lovely zipper looking scar going down my belly. After surgery my leg hurt so much worse. I was still stuck in bed/laying down even after I was recovered from the surgery. I went back to see my regular oncologist because I was taken off the trial drug because my last CT Scan showed that the cancer grew a little bit. So because of surgery I haven't been on any cancer treatment since the beginning of September. I have bumps and lumps popping up all over. One in my right thigh (this one does not hurt like the left one though, thank God), one on my pubic area, one by my right elbow and one by my right shoulder. You can feel all off them. The only one you can see is the one in my pubic area. I had another surgery on October 29th. They removed the tumor in my left leg to hopefully relieve my pain. I *think* it worked. I don't want to say just yet because it is still pretty sore from surgery. This one was outpatient, we were home by noon :) I go see my oncologist on the 9th so I should be starting some treatment then or shortly after that day. Thank God!!!
The boys are good. Nathan is 7 and in 2nd grade. He is really good at
reading...when HE wants to. I wish he loved reading as much as I do.
Hopefully he'll end up loving it. Colin is 5 and in kindergarten. He is
so smart and such a ham. He's guaranteed to make you laugh multiple
times a day!!
Nick and I are good. He has been so great about doing stuff around the
house that I haven't been able to do. I have felt so bad that he works
all day and would have to come home and do everything. I know that there
was nothing I could do about it but I still felt bad, ya know? Yesterday
was the first time I made dinner in probably 2 months or so. I'm so glad
I'm starting to feel good enough to do all the household chores again!!
Have a good weekend!!
