……a week off!
This seems to be the beginning of a week’s respite. Hilary is feeling better now than she has for two weeks, no Prednazone or Neupagen for a while to which there are seemingly some unpleasant side effects. Her mouth is still swollen but the sores seem to have dried up. Now, at least, she’s eating….trying to put some of the weight back on. Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding (what else?) does the trick!!
She actually went out last night, with Krista, to a meeting of “Look Good Feel Good” a support group…….all the way to Brampton……definitely south of Major Mac!! She enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. It’s usually just a one time event and concentrates on the cosmetic side of things as treatment progresses. She’s even talking about hitting the range and trying to hit a few balls……we’ll see!
Soooo, like I said, a week orf!! Back into it starting Aug 25th. The only med she’s taking just now is something to control the Uric acid build up but there is no apparent side effect to this.
Next week Rosemary is taking her to the hospital. This last week she got flowers and cards from various folk and fantastic cookies from Nancy…..there’s only two left!! The cookie monster strikes again.
