Update…

Sorry to be so late with an update.  I saw the ENT surgeon on Friday.  The drain was removed and the doctor told me that the stitches looked good, etc.  I am still having pain and trying to pace out the pain meds.  I don’t have any energy yet and I have depended on my daughter a lot.  She has been really good as a backup and I am so thankful for her.

An appointment was made with the oncologist for Sep 29.  My goal is to get all 35 radiation treatments done by Thanksgiving.

I do have lots of tales to tell from my hospital stay and I will get to those when I feel like posting again.  I was given a choice on whether to be discharged on the 3rd day.  Things were so hectic in my hospital room that I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

  2. Beth so good to see you online again. I continue to pray for ;you. Your picture makes me a little homesick. The ash trees will be turning yellow very soon in Illinois. We had a huge tree in Morton that took forever to rake up!

  4. I am glad you got home from the hospital in three days. There is no place like home. I am so thankful you have such a wonderful daughter. And drains - no fun. I guess you go every day for radiation? I will be praying. Your street is beautiful! Best wishes.

  9. Oh, Beth! I am so sorry that you have to go through treatment again. You have certainly had more than your share of pain and anxiety in the last year or so. WAY too much. I am praying for healing and that chemo is easy for you. I would love to post a prayer request for you on my blog again if that would be okay. Love to you- Diana
