I've been absent from the forum for a bit. Things haven't been easy for me lately. I got a call from my husband to tell me that his Mother, my beloved mother-in-law had just died. I dropped everything and went to him. While she was still there, dead, on the bed, my brother called to tell me my father had just been admitted to hospice care and only has an expected couple of weeks to live. Meanwhile, I had surgery scheduled for the following day to have a cyst removed from my neck (was not lymphoma). I went to my mother-in-law's funeral high as a kite from pain pills. A couple of days later, I took a 6-hour car drive, alone, through Atlanta traffic, sans pain pills, to be with my family. I stayed for a week and came home.
I didn't think I was up for all this right now, but I did it. It was only 2 months ago that I went to the grocery store by myself! I have an appointment tomorrow to have my neck staples removed. I have an appointment next week for my 2nd Rituxan maintenance and I can't decide what to do about that. I have considered re-scheduling it, but since only God knows when my Dad will pass over, I suppose I will just wait and see. I will be making another trip home some time soon.
Needless to say, I am exhausted! I hope everyone is doing well and getting the support they need.
