Updating Myself.

Post by Guest on Sun Apr 04, 2010 1:23 pm

It's been awhile since I've last posted here. So to update everyone. I'm still vertical & not laying horizontal. I've four Chemo treatments so far. And have two more to go. Then I'll be off them for six months. Then start another six weeks of Chemo. Now these treatments aren't the type many Cancer patients get. In as no loss of the little hair I've still have & no pain. They insert the drug through a catheter through the penis & insert them into the bladder. But that leave me feeling weak. I've been sleeping 12+ everyday & don't have as much energy as I used to.

My B/P & Heart rate are still acting up. April 8th I'll be seeing the Cardiologist who'll be performing the Cardiac procedure. It's the same procedure the done back in 2006 to stop the Atrial Flutters I was having then. Now it's to stop the Atrial Fibrillations I've been having. Hopefully it will also help with my B/P. My B/P has been fluctionating between a low 70/40 to as high as 186/114. My Heart rate has been ranging from a low 33 to highs of 188.

Two weeks ago I fell hard on my left hip while replacing a light bulb. At first I only felt a light twinge in my hip & didn't think much of it. But by two days later I was in excruciating pain & went to the V.A. E/R. I didn't fracture or break anything but had deep bone bruises which was the cause of the pain.

Lastly. It won't be until some time in the Fall before Michael goes to trial. Well I'll stop for now. I'm a little tired.

Go to sleep. And know that we miss you. You have my number. Call if you need anything. And I really do mean anything. You know I am only a couple hours away.

Thank you for all the updates Alex! Don't really know you & the Mrs well, but with time on my hands I sure wonder about you folks here on YS! Great to hear all the news is productive & positive. Atleast your waking up on the green side, partner!

You need to take care of yourself when changing light bulbs though man! Your doing better than John! Together with height & electricity he runs away from the idea of changing light bulbs!

Well I finished the first six weeks of chemo on April 12. In July I'll have to do three treatments then be off ( no wise remarks please )for three months. Looks like at this time I'll be under going this for the next three years. Still haven't had the Cardiac Ablation. My Lil Princess Alexis just turned one. I'm starting to build her a dollhouse. Michael's trial most likely won't be until the Fall. Otherwise nothin new to talk about.

I'm glad you're doing okay, too, Alex. I agree....post some pics of that dollhouse! My grandfather built me a dollhouse when I was little, too....it was incredible!

Glad you seem to be doing better. I've had it where I fell and it hurts like hell to get back up even if nothing is broken. Keep us updated.
