moving forward

A little progress today. I was able to move my right foot for the first time since surgery. My home health nurse put me in the lift and was able to get me out of the hospital bed and into the wheelchair. I had her wheel me into my craft room and just sat there for a few minutes enjoying the sights and smells of rubber stamps, and cardstock and ribbon! Small steps forward, but, they mean a lot to me. After all, progress is progress, right? Yay!

I started radiation yesterday. So far so good. Once radiation is over, it is back to chemo. I go everyday for 5 days, which is way better than last time when I went 25 times. Moving forward.............

I am home from the hospital and the re-hab. I was gone for three weeks.The plan took a definite turn. The original plan was to re-learn to walk after the tumor in the spinal cord was removed. That plan changed when they discovered I am in stage 4 cancer, in my lungs, liver, and pelvic bone. I will not be able to walk now or I may fracture my pelvic bone. I will be doing chemo and radiation again. I know this is a card idea blog, not a medical blog, but I wanted to explain why I am not making cards. I am in a hospital bed. Thank you everyone for your sweet comments and your prayers. I have received such great support and am so blessed. Thank you so much.
