Hi to all with Good News!!
The most recent CT scan shows most of the nodules scattered throughout
my lungs have shrunk to a size not picket up by the scan. Thank God.
This does not indicate that they have disappeared, but their shrinkage is
a very good sign.
Side effects are still bothersome with neuropathy, soreness in the legs
and feet, and retention of liquid in the legs being the worst. We are taking
steps to alleviate these symptoms. Also, my red blood count is low so
I need a blood transfusion tomorrow. Of course still getting shots to
boost my white count too.
My thanks for your prayers and concerns. I am in God's hands and your
prayers are working!.
Love to you all,
Karen (and Skip.too, who is my keeper)
Keep Karen and Skip in your prayers and, of course, cards, cards, cards.
I suppose I would be remiss in not mentioning my own (Henry Lieder) injury. Back in March I slipped and fell on some ice and tore my rotator cuff. Surgery and infection followed and I am currently in physical therapy, the surgeon says for six months. I tell people it has ruined my golf game, but then, I don't play golf.
If you like the idea of a Class of '59 IR List, let us know. Of course we respect your privacy and would not publish anything you do not want to share with the class. We want to let you know about classmates who have encountered some injury or illness and would enjoy hearing from you. You'll find postal and/or e-mail addresses on our website under "Contact Classmates." Share your "Get Wells" with those who made need a little cheering up.
