1/12/2013 3 radiation treatments down 12 to go as far as I have been told. Still in a lot of pain but it does seem to be letting up a tiny bit. Still can't lift my left foot more than a few inches off the floor and that is the cause of the trips and falls. The guy who does my treatments says he's seen people be out of pain in 3 days or 2 weeks so every one is different. Still getting burning back spasms so just have to wait and see. I am still on the Fentanyl 150 mcg patches and also oxycodone, that is helping a little but still not enough but I am staying strong and spending too much time in bed. My Mom is going shopping for me this week for a new mattress topper and a nice set of sheets with deep pockets and I'll pay her for them after she helps me make the bed up and then I will put my new quilt from the Cuties on it and try to get a full length pic for you and of course ask someone to post it since my Kodak program won't work with cute or anything as of today, so frustrating!! Hugs to you all for praying and caring! Heading to the living room to try and take down some Christmas decor, hubby doesn't help much and he is off running errands right now. I won't get on any ladders or step stools so fear not of me falling again, LOL!!! Debra

Good to hear from you. I've been away from Cuties so it was good to see your post first. Do take it easy, but if you are able to get a little exercise by moving about that won't hurt either. But the most important thing is to really take care of yourself. Hopefully you will have less pain after the Chemo. Love you and you're in my prayers. Terre

Debra, thanks for the update - it does sound like things are progressing and I will be praying for you - especially that you get some use of your foot back. Please take care of yourself, when you are alone, too. Enjoy the new mattress topper and I look forward to seeing your pictures of your loving quilt. You are always in my prayers and on my mind. HUGS

Thank you so much!

Oh, Debra, you make my plight with the intestinal flu this week seem like a "walk in the park", so to speak! It is difficult for me to complain about anything, knowing what you have endured for so long now, and still rallying, inspite of it all! A nice thick mattress topper will make you feel so much more comfy! It will cushion a lot of those aches and pains away, hopefully! Hang in there, keep on keeping on, but be careful!! Praying for YOU each day!!
Lovin' Hugs,

Hubby won't let me near stairs so Christmas decor is coming down very slowly. Did some today and now I hurt so bad I can't stand it, that's what I get for taking advantage of feeling good for just a little bit!

by pennifold 13 Jan 2013

HI Deb, having the new linen on your bed will be refreshing. I keep you in my daily prayers and hope that the pain will soon subside. You are one hell of a fighter. I hope someone can help you with your camera programme soon too. Love and blessings Chris
