Spence says he's going to have to take charge of the blog, since I am just not consistent enough in writing. My life doesn't change that much from day to day...so I just give you updates. I am doing pretty well. Today Brady and I walked around our cul-de-sac twice--that's pretty good for me. Today was a better day for me because I wasn't gone as much as yesterday. I only went out once with Kelsey who took me to get some frozen yogurt--it was delicious!
Yesterday I had to have blood work done to see how my cumadin levels are (regulating how thin my blood is). Then Kelsey took me down to meet Spence and we had lunch at Subway. I had some soup. Then we went to the GI doctor. He was really nice, and spent time helping both of us. We talked about my C-Dif, and the flagyl I'm taking for that. He is going to keep me on it for quite a while--I just hope that the C-Dif will finally leave my system. He was pleased with how I look. He is still in amazement that I got cancer--see, you just never know.
On the way home from the doctor's, Kelsey and I stopped to get some Valentines...so by the time we got home, we were BOTH wiped out. I still have to pace myself, and try to not put too much into one day. One baby step at a time...
My eating is going great. However, I still can't eat much at one time. I get feeling bloated if I eat too much, or if I'm on the feeding tube for too long. I love being able to eat salads and fruit again. I just have to be careful. When they did the surgery, they took out the valves to my stomach and my esophagus. That makes it interesting if I happen to lean over after I eat--sometimes I can feel all that food coming back up! It doesn't, but it's still a weird sensation. I am able to be alone during the day--I read, crochet, and try to work on my computer, and of course (as you well know) take my naps. Have a great weekend!! Love you lots, Louise
