Sorry about the news of Rob, TT! As Lori says, this disease truly sucks. I hope his rads, and then his chemo, gets it under control. It's weird enough having a port delivering poison to the vessels in your heart...having a direct path to your brain is weirder. But it's well said...at least they can do something.
I ducked the Colorado blizzard by being in Virginia taking care of my 3-month-old granddaughter, Ada. It's beautiful spring here. Daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, dogwood--and we went early to the tidal basin in DC to see the cherry blossoms. The sight was breathtaking. I never knew such shades of pink existed! My hubs said there was a lot of wind there in Colorado but not much accumulation of snow. Our little dogs appreciate that. When it's deep their bellies get chilly.
Lori, I'm glad to hear your rads were gentle to your poor skin, and I hope they continue to work their magic for a long time.
I've had an issue recently that caused a tiny concern--my legs, rather suddenly, became weak, heavy, and tingly. I was initially concerned there be a metastatic lesion on my spine, but then concluded it was a flare-up of long-standing lumbar stenosis. My doctor still wanted an MRI and there's no cancer there, just a spinal canal that's squeezed down and choking off the nerves to my legs. And I'm certain the letrozole aches don't help matters. Anyway, I'm hoping there's a fix besides yet ANOTHER trip to the operating room. I resolved years ago to never, ever see the inside of one again, at least from a supine position.
Good thoughts and vibes to all here. And a blooming hyacinth--I hope you can smell it!
