The stitches came out this morning and the exercises needed to strengthen the shoulder are very painful. But the good news is that I no longer have to take the daily Fragmin shots to the stomach for blood thinning and I am off the iron pills which upset my stomach! This is progress.
While I received my chemo, my nurse, Ann Marie, was wonderful to me and knew how to access my port in the least painful way. She has now moved up to Dr. Bajorin’s offiice and so she is my contact person for questions at Sloan now. I am thrilled.
I really feel like the climb out of the hole is getting better, not easier but closer to my goal of wellness. These little things have regenerated my willingness to fight with a smile on my face.
