First off I want to wish everyone a happy holiday whatever religion or lack there of you embrace! We call it Snowman Day in our house because there are so many different beliefs in the works. I quit trying to remember who is what and I just send out winter wishes to everyone. My card this year! The family all came home for Thanksgiving and while here pitched in and got the house decorated for the holidays...I have an awesome family!
I thank everyone for their interest and concern over my health and wellness issues....
I went to the surgeon on December 23 and was told my set back with the laminectomy and spinal fusion was due to me having broken one of the vertebrae some how. I am fused L4-L5 and L5-S1 with plastic spacers in-between the discs...evidently sitting down too hard one day caused a spacer to slam into the vertebrae and crack it...it will heal but hurts like hell! I can truthfully say I am sitting down rather gingerly to keep from cracking more! I am still having memory issues and haven't been too good in retaining lately...doctor says it will come back...I am hoping so!
I started radiation therapy to a recurrent issue with basal cell cancer on my face. Evidently they think that this might help and I started treatments a week ago. The treatments are at Norman Regional Hospital Cancer Management Center five days a week for another 2 weeks. The treatment itself is painless...unless you count having to get up and go every day. While it is a low dose of radiation my system already being compromised by autoimmune disorders has decided to react with fatigue, headaches, dry eye etc. Dr. Yeh assures me that it will go away as soon as the treatments are done.
The girls at the treatment center took a picture for me to share and I want to point out that I figure it was meant to be because of all the purple!
I haven't been doing much of anything exercise, craft, cooking etc because of not feeling like doing much of anything. I try and push myself and I do get stuff done but...limited.
Anyway I hope everyone has a great week end and a happy start to the new year.
