My apologies once again for a belated blog post. I know I am long over due and just have not been able to get onto the computer for the sheer irritation that it can be to sit here doing the same thing for so long. My head aches are finally under control and I have also been able to control my bowel movements some. Everytime I would stand up; it seemed that my intestine would stretch and decide to empty; each and every time. I kept reminding myself that at least I'm not shitting in a bag just yet. I have to still use my gastric tube for pressure relief in my tummy and I still suffer from the worst heart burn after eating each time so cannibis is working wonders for that and I am so incredibly thankful that it can. I have been obsessed a bit with counting up calories as others have to count down including my fat cat.
Well I did it finally! I have joined the 40 club and have finally turned 40 when it was told I would definately not make it this far; now I am in the process of healing and just taking it one day at a time.
We had a wonderful birthday celebration celebrating all weekend long and will continue to celebrate life each day as they come; some days I feel good and can go outside, visit with others, and have some fun. We had visitors all day long on Sunday and even a wonderful cake. Miss Blue Belle felt very beautiful because I had given her a long grooming on Saturday night prior to the party and she even smelled of lavender with a little visitor doggie barking and chasing him about the house. Tonto had numerous opportunities to escape when we had so many visitors stop by but he stayed put and even put up with a little dog chasing and barking at him. He finally had enough and smacked the little dog with his powerful bear paws! No cuts or scrapes on the little dog; just a scared wimpering little dog; so he must have not had his claws out.
Today we will be seeing my surgeon who performed the Medtronic Drug Pump Surgery on the 28th of May for which I am still recovering from. I will be asking him if it will be OK for me to ride my beautiful bicycle. Yes this is the exact bicycle I have only we have added a gorgeous basket and mag light for riding at night; oh and also one of those flashing red lights for the back. It's safe all the way but I just want to make sure that I am ready to ride and nothing gets damaged including the wire in my back; "oh wierd it is to be a walking medical experiement". I'm hoping that we will be able to take out my picc line so that my arm can heal; the vein has started to ache quite a bit; however the pain pump works for the cancer pain but I still get violent muscle spasms in my poor bottom and intestine (funny how I know what's hurting but it is during digestion process that the pain starts).
I will update later on to let you all know how the doctor visit went. Here's to a full recovery and death to all Cancers and not those who have it!
Peace and Love to all!Yes; I had to post what my tummy now looks like with the darned pump in; I did get the staple removed a week ago yesterday.
Here I am making a wish to end all Cancers! Sure hope it comes true one day!
