I have been pressed into action by my wife. She is so exhausted she literally can't move. They doubled her Affinitor chemo, and this is the result.
Last night, she ran a low grade fever. Her white count is not good. Fluids for 4 hours. Major headache. Plus, the exhaustion.
She did take our dog Bear to the bluffs in Santa Monica to watch the sunset. Bear sticks very close to her, head in lap. He’s a big guy-- 105 pounds – and amazingly sensitive to Nor's feelings.
I know she wants me to thank all of you who have given suggestions to help her neuropathy. She worries about not being mobile or as mobile. And she is trying to apply all suggested methods.
But you know what?
Noreen is a courageous woman who fights her cancer every step of the way. She is blessed with wonderful children and a family of eight brothers and sisters, plus her parents, and a circle of friends who love her deeply.
I love this woman and am going to continue to do everything in my power to seek ways to make her life better and find a way to cure this diabolical disease.
For you reading this-- Noreen is grateful for your support. It helps her physically and mentally each day. We thank you.
