Just Hanging

I am just hanging out waiting for the surgeon to call.  Today is the day we are supposed to get the pathology report from the surgery.  I know that no more lymph nodes will need to be removed but we don’t know whether there are clean margins.  If the margins are clean then no more surgery is needed.  If they are not, then more surgery until the margins are clean.  I have also been dealing with a pinched nerve in my upper left back which has affected the strength in my left arm.  This is a bummer as the right arm has the drain coming out of it and I need the left to push me up and around.  I feel like one of those bad jokes ‘Hey what do you call a person who can’t use their arms?   Matt!”   It has gotten lots better thanks to a fabulous PT but this morning it was on fire again.  Since I truly think this is partially stress related, I must be more stressed than I think waiting for the surgeon to call.

    Ouch! I am so sorry, Loretta! Love the idea, however, that your temporary new name is “Matt”! I’ve been teased for years…what do you call a person with only a half a leg…you know….I..lean! Ha Ha!

    On a different note, I’ve been thinking about you all day and really praying for some good news! You deserve it!

      Will pray for clean margins! Thinking of you and wishing the best.

    TRX training did not allow you the ability to move through this (pinched nerve)? Interesting…where is it coming from? I hope more PT will make that go AWAY!

    This is so unrelated but I forgot to tell you how clever I think the graphics are for this blog. Hope you get some relief from that pinched nerve. It was nice to see you out and about, kind of, on Monday.
    Hope you have a good nights rest.

      Thank you, Mary Lynn. I always hoped that one day I would be known for a drawing of breasts. If you would like a signed copy, just ask.
