Update--and some good news

First and foremost: I did hear from the Fellow who is working with my gynecologic oncologist.  As far as the scan shows, the cancer is confined to the uterus.  All I can say is, thank God.  Hoping that when the total hysterectomy happens on the 22nd, the cancer gets removed.  All of it.  It's not paying me rent; eviction time.

I'm still very tired.  I also can't stop bleeding.  This has made for more than one very embarrassing moment.  Can't wait till this little problem is gone for good.  Also, just fyi, it seems there isn't a feminine hygiene product on the market which doesn't become incredibly irritating and even painful if you have to use it ALL THE TIME.

I'm having a lot of trouble getting everything I need to have done ready before the surgery.  My mom came up for the weekend and was a huge help.  But there is still a lot to do so that I don't drown in paperwork or fall over an awful lot of things that are still on the floor when I'm trying to recover.  I wish I could pay for help.  I wish I found gold at the end of a rainbow ;)  LOL.

Ok, back to work.  Where is that shovel?

About Me

My photo
I've travelled the distance from an Ivy League college to decades of enforced poverty--because I've needed to qualify for government health care in the U.S., since being diagnosed with lupus at the age of 23. I have a personal blog at that I've had so long I'm probably stuck with :) My other blogs are here on blogger...
