Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Hospital Stay Saga

Blessings to all of Cari's blogger friends. Cari has been in the hospital since last Wednesday regarding the seizures she had. But happy to report that she is on seizure meds and so far it is now under control. One of the other reasons she has been hospitalized so long is because her blood counts were very low and they had to be raised to fight off any type of infection. She is also receiving Physical Therapy to help strengthen her body, especially her legs and arms. Being bedridden in the hospital for so long and the side effects of medication have weakened her muscles. But she is motivated to work on her strength so she can get home soon. She is also experiencing burning pain as an after effect from shingles. Please pray that this will also diminish quickly. But Rumor is that it may be this week that she will get home (let's keep our fingers crossed). After all we have a belated birthday to cele brate!

As always we extend our gratitude and thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers and meals and phone calls and most recently for the beautiful ramp her neighbors built so she can easily be transported in her wheel chair. As the weather improves be on the look out for her presence and smile in the neighborhood.

I'm a long-time lurker and I've never commented. I came across this blog because we share some reading interests. I just wanted to let you know that you're in my thoughts and I hope you are home soon! I think about you and your family often and wish you all strength as you go through this.
