I feel a bit stronger after getting blood yesterday. My visiting nurse came to my home to check my blood pressure, temperature, strength and evaluate how I am doing. Since all my blood levels dropped so low they are checking on me one to two times a week. I went to my chiropractor today for the first time since being diagnosed with cancer. I was in so much pain in my legs and back from sitting so long yesterday that I really needed to go. My mobility is a bit better from my chiropractic treatment.
I also worked on my upper body arm exercises, but just did not feel up to going swimming today. It was still quite hot, but tolerable. As always, I keep up with all my herbal supplements and juicing every day. My son is home and between he and my daughter, they are after me to hydrate and eat as much cancer fighting foods as possible.
My children also got a low-calorie muscle builder to give me once a day as my muscles have deteriorated quite a bit. Some of this has been from taking prednisone for three years. My primary care doctor kept treating me for polymyelitis rheumatica, but the prednisone probably masked the cancer and the polymyelits rheumatica was a precursor to my type of cancer as told to me by my oncologist. That is still so frustrating to my family and I. If I did not get the pain I had back in June and go to the emergency room, I may have never found out I have cancer. That goodness I finally found out! It is not what you want to hear, but now I have a fighting chance. “I will get rid of my cancer, I will get rid of my cancer, I will get rid of my cancer.”
Have a great day all,
