Since I’ve been home it’s been a hard transition emotionally. The everyday routine I am use to; cooking, cleaning, care giving, always on the move, has become more like sitting on the couch and resting.
For the first week that I’ve been home, my 1yr old daughter, Harper, has been sick with a fever. It has been hard hearing her cry and not being the one caring for her. I am also emotionally upset that I can’t nurse Harper anymore. While at the hospital my milk supply dried up; even though I was pumping.
This was the first week meals have been delivered to my house via ‘takethemameal.com’. What a blessing that has been!
Yesterday I had a follow up appointment with both the surgeon and oncologist. The surgeon pulled off four of the five bandages. She said my incisions are healing well and to check back in a few weeks. The oncologist talked to me about the Chemotherapy options to treat the five spots on my liver. The spots are not concentrated, they are scattered around.
My husband and I are taking one day at a time, not using our energy on worrying about the cancer. A book I’m reading says it well; “Never dwell on tomorrow, remember that tomorrow is God’s, not ours” Calm My Anxious Heart by, Linda Dillow
Thank you for all your love and support.
