An update and some ramblings
My last health update said how good I felt, well, within a day or so my temperature had risen to 38.2°C, time to toddle off to the hospital where I spent three days getting over a fever and having my white cell and Manganese levels increased, no doubt the Chemo. is responsible for this problem.
Well, Christmas is over for another year and we've made a hole in the mass of chocolate that was included in the presents. I can't remember if I've already posted about the present that Marlene bought for me, a "Fitbit" For anyone who, like me had never heard of such a thing, it fits around the wrist and gives, amongst other things that I haven't yet figured out, heart rate, steps taken, hours of sleep, also restlessness, fluid intake and it's a GPS! I almost forgot to mention that it also tells the time in a number of different display formats! It also sends me an email when the battery is low! All the data can be displayed on a smart phone, ipad or pc.
On Tuesday I'll be getting the results of last week's CT scan which hopefully will show a reduction in the size of the cancer.
My biggest problem at the moment is a swollen and very painful left ankle. It's been X-rayed and scanned with ultrasound but no diagnosis, only that there is some fluid there but not enough to remove! I'm wondering if it might be a spider bite.
to be continued (I hope!)
