It isn't very often that I have a post so recently posted as this!
We had our lunch this noon on the deck. The cooler temperatures we've been having and the sunny weather, are making it really nice to enjoy fall. And it is fall, isn't it? It's close enough on the calendar, really, and the temperatures say it is.
With no breeze, the other's ate their BLT's at the table and I soaked up the sun in my hat. It was perfect weather to be out in.
I've been sleeping a little better, too. I actually slept 5 hours straight last night, and I don't know if I've done that since I've had surgery!
Things are changing for the better, my mouth isn't so sore as it once was. There is still soreness underneath it all, which is baffling. I wonder how long it will take before it actually heals?
I'm afraid the answer is going to be "after the next round of chemo". I haven't asked on that one yet. And I could. It seems like I've spent all my time hand in glove with the radiation doctor. His team with my favorite, Dr. Lorri, have been the ones directing my care. Now, it is time to take up the the finishing team with the chemo care doctors.
I've been having a little trouble with my left eye. It has always been watery since it should be producing more tears than it is. Which sounds really funny, but I don't get it all now, but it keeps working on producing tears anyway. However, these last couple of days it isn't watery anymore but globby green. It is NOT pinkeye, the white of the eye is not pink. So, we called the Dr. tonight. (Why is it always after hours?) My temperature is slightly elevated, so I could go into the ER, but for goodness sakes!!!, haven't I already been there enough times! Since it isn't getting better these couple of days, the diagnosis is to keep a watch on my temperature and see the Dr. in the morning. However, IF my temp goes up, I'll be trotting in to the ER before morning. I hope not, of course, but what will be, will be.
I feel a nap coming on.
