A Week With Mom
I have been having the week of all weeks with my MOM. I'm so glad she's here to help out, and it's been so healing to have her all to myself for the week. She's been able to drive me to all of my appointments and take me on all my errands, not to mention indulge me in a little retail therapy, all while Boyfriend can stay home and get some work done. As my full-time caretaker, he's not had much opportunity for anything work or self-related in a LONG time. So throw some intense mountain bike rides and extra sleep in with the web application work he so loves (and needs to do!) while Mom and I are off doing our own thing, and he's been a VERY. HAPPY. BOYFRIEND.
So here's the health update:
Treatment is still going well, no major increase in side effects to report from the last two weeks. Still too skinny and finding it hard to sleep at night with all the steroids, but I just try to take lots of breaks, wind down with my Tulsi Tea, and go to be early. If I'm up at dawn, I'm up at dawn. More meditating time.
Despite my efforts to keep my immune system strong, and I'm not one to get sick much anyway, I'm fighting a sinus cold and laryngitis. Although all the gabbing with Mom is certainly a contributing factor to my voice problem... And I'd like to think that some of the yuckiness that is sliding out of my nose and eyes is bits of tuber running for it's life! ;-D
And it's official: the hair is coming out. In clumps. But only on the right side. So the plan is to take it all off, eventually, maybe by the end of the week. Lots of hats, woo hoo! Boyfriend's excited, 'cause now we'll have the same hair-do!
