This was me, from several weeks ago, when Mom and I were making pesto from the basil we grew in our front yard! I was all delighted to be up "cooking", but unfortunately, the trend did not continue, as you all know, I've had a few challenging weeks lately.
Anyway, I am doing pretty well now, recovering from the pneumonia. I am still quite tired but mostly I feel pretty OK, and the pain I was having is now under much better control, I'm taking more morphine now, and it seems to be doing the trick !
Good news from the whole pneumonia/hospitalization thing - the scans showed that the disease is still stable! Also, when I was sent to ultrasound to drain the fluid in my lungs (to see if it was infected), there was not even enough fluid there for them to drain! Considering that a few months ago I had a massive pleural effusion going on there, it really shows the success of the chemo I have been on. I'd be even happier if I was able to be up and around more, doing more "normal" things, but I must say that once I accept the limits of my fatigue and breathing, life is really very good.
Michelle and Craig are coming home this weekend for the long weekend, and we are excited to be seeing them again, looking forward to a nice family weekend.
Best wishes to all of you, and thank you for your continued interest in me and my well-being!
