I went in to see the doc the other day. My WBC still has me at bubble-girl status. They are also sending me in for a MRI on my brain because the peripheral neuropathy is so bad. They want to make sure it’s actually peripheral neuropathy and not something else (i.e. brain tumors.) Right now, they are treating me for PN (basically, the brain signals to my hands and feet are misfiring.) So I have new meds (yuck) and I have to split my time between a walker and a wheelchair. No more walking on my own. I’ve fallen too many times and they are worried about me breaking bones. They want me to continue typing and crocheting, no matter how frustrating it gets, so I’m under doctor’s orders to write and to continue decorating my walker and wheelchair (grin.) And I will be sent to physical therapy soon, so I can walk with the walker more and wheelchair it less. If it’s peripheral neuropathy, it’s caused by the chemo, and most likely won’t go away (since I will be on chemo for life.)
I go to the eye doc next week, so hopefully I will be able to see the computer screen again. (Apparently, vision loss is more of the peripheral neuropathy. So the chemo is really kicking my butt. But I will take PN over brain tumors any day. And I kick back. (grin.)
Here’s Wilbert, ready for spring/May.
Needless to say, not a lot of writing happened this last week (some did, but just a little bit) and I put together a Patreon.
Enough about me, let’s hear a sound off. How is going for all of you?
