Things having been going pretty good over here. I think having that polyp removed helped a bit. I have been fighting a cough for a couple months and quite a bit of side and hip pain. Yesterday I had an X-ray of my chest and right hip. If hip X-ray doesn’t show anything I will get an MRI. Due to high chemo and transplant as well as high doses of steroids and having osteopenia , there could be damage. I’m also getting a ct scan done to find out what is bothering my stomach on the right side. I have a constant dull ache. I also had a stomach scope to get a couple biopsy’s to check for gvhd. Sometimes I have a hard time swallowing.
As much as is going on I see the improvements I have made. I am lowering my steroid dose once again and really hope it’s successful. My body can’t seem to live without the stuff but I won’t give up.
I had a fantastic weekend away to Kelowna for Track and Field provincials. Super proud of my kids and all the kids. Gavin places 4th in senior boys triple jump and he and Madison did great in all their events. I brought my mom along . She is having a big surgery in a couple weeks and it was nice to get her out for a bit.
We celebrated Madison turning 15 on Sunday. My kids are growing up and I feel so blessed to be here to watch them grow. I will never take that for granted. Gavin also got his drivers license. 😀
This coming Saturday is the Relay for Life. I have been raising money for a couple months and am thankful to be participating again. This is my 3rd year in a row. I have done Relay before I was sick as well as weekend to end woman’s cancer. It is something that has always been close to my heart. It’s going to be a great day.
