I am so very sorry for not keeping in touch. I don't mean to whine. I really haven't been myself lately. Forgive me, especially to those who have every reason to whine. My problem isn't my dx of NHL in Sept Oct 2009. I saw my oncologist Feb 4, and there is no reason for concern. I will know more when the results of my blood test come in. She told me she is running a full panel. If the results are good, I would still be in remission. I will have a Pet, CT Scan in July, and will see her in August. I forgot to mention. I did get some blood results from my Feb 4 visit. It was good. She also looked over the results of the many blood test my internist took. She said they were very good. Does anyone know what kind of tests she will be running??? It just seems I had so many blood tests. What is left??? Does anyone know??
As is wrote in the above paragraph, I am not myself. Right now I am on pain medication for the pain I have in my right hip. I do believe this was caused by the bone marrow biopsy I had in Oct 2009. For those not familiar, I am having a complete right hip replacement March 12. The pain is horrible without pain medication. It does have side effects. With it, at least I can do some of my everyday tasks, and enjoy for part of the day a social life. My personality has changed, and it seems I am not saying the right things to friends. Which has caused some conflict.
Today I am glad I was able to write all of you, and share my feelings. I know you understand. I find myself frightened of having surgery. I really have no choice. Months back, I received such encouragement from my family on this site. Also, the information I received was very valuable.
There are so many things I have to take care of before surgery. There are so many doctor visits to find out if my health will allow surgery. So far, everything is a go.
Jim, I see you are still there for everyone. I hope everything is good with you. Sue, I love your new picture. You look so beautiful. How is baby Lizzy?
If anyone is up to it, please let me know by responding to this post, how you are doing? There are so many of you that I think of often. Even in the state I am in, you are never forgotten.
What an interesting format. If only it were easier to get to this site. I had a few problems. But, I am here.
Love love and God Bless all of you. Stay strong and positive. Love Maggie
