Updating My Health

 Things are progressing for me. Because of my son's plan I am getting some nutrition. He discovered some Keto shakes online that have more nutrients than any of the other liquid foods we have found so far. I have even worked hard at eating more normal meals for the evening meal. It is hard but I am getting there.

The ramp we ordered was finally delivered. It makes it so much easier to get in and out of the house. I was leery at first but once I tried it I am happy to be more mobile. 

I was finally able to have the kidney stone removed. I am still not certain how it was done. All I know is that they broke it up somehow and removed it. Yay!

The surgery for my breast cancer will be in a couple of weeks. We decided on a lumpectomy. I am not looking forward to it but I am looking forward to it being over. 

My poor daughter (as you know) had a double mastectomy. She is now undergoing more chemo and next month will begin her radiation. I feel so bad that she has to go through all this.

I am still doing therapy. No more in-home visits. I go to the little town about five miles from here. They have a lot of equipment and are so nice. I am usually worn out when I get home.

I gratefully read all your comments. I appreciate them and feel encouraged by them.

I look forward to the time when I do not feel so absorbed by my health issues. Then I can write a real post.
