Advent begins tomorrow! The First Sunday of Advent is the Sunday of Hope. We thank God for the hope He gives us, for the peace he bestows, & for the joy he pours into our hearts. On the First Sunday, we look forward to the Second Coming of Christ. The Chrismon Tree is up at Bellefontaine UMC (Pepper sent a photo❤️🎄)! Do you have a favorite Chrismon?
I am feeling better, but all I have done since coming home is sleep!
Stomach shots for the blood clots is NOT fun, but I am so happy to be home!
Next week, I have another chemo embolism procedure on the left lobe of my liver, then we will start working on the right lobe. It is gonna be a rough couple of months, but I am expecting good things! #GODISGOOD
I have been quarantining for a couple of years now, so, once again, I didn’t not go to family gatherings for Thanksgiving, but I have had some AMAZING food sent my way. Considering what I have had at the hospital, I am LOVING every bite of home cooking!
Pepper is so happy that I am home. Y’all would not BELIEVE the singing and dancing that has been going on around here this week!
Hope y’all had a special Thanksgiving holiday!
The stress test was perfect and we are so happy to be headed home!
My white blood cell counts are improving and Pepper could come by today for a quick visit! He absolutely made my day!
I was deeply asleep when he got here apparently, but when a nurse came in and I looked over, I busted out crying- I was so happy to see him. Then he starts up the entertainment to keep me from crying. But it was happy crying!
We are definitely better together! #GODISGOOD I am so blessed with such an amazing, silly guy! I adore him!
I am hooked up to everything! I am having a few chest pains that started up last night. All of the heart tests so far has been good, but I will be having a stress test on Monday.
Another piece of news: I have a blood clot in my arm and a large one in my leg — the right leg that always has everything happen to it.
I have never had a clot in my arm, but I have had the deep vein thrombosis (DVT) two other times. It is one of the weird side effects of chemo. So very few have this side effect, but as my oncologist says, if there is an obscure, weird side effect to any of this, I will have it!🙄
#GODISGOOD I am where I need to be to find this out. That makes a big difference. I am so glad I found out here, instead of back home. God knows!
Some good news: I do not have pulmonary embolism, and all of my heart scans so far (EKG, PTINR & CT) have been perfect. AND there is no bacteria growing in my blood.
And if I don’t get to see Pepper soon, he may forget how to sing and dance. I may not like his musical tastes, but we can’t have THAT!
