Its always something

I had great news recently… a new Medical Oncologist associated with Roper Hospital in Charleston told me I did not benefit from taking Tamoxifen, and so, I’ve been off it for almost 5 weeks now and feeling great.

In addition, I had a hyperplasia dental event and in addition to taking an antibiotic, also paused the high blood pressure meds Lisinopril (.01% chance it was the culprit).  Well, it is healing nicely and my bp has been reasonable with medication!

So I figure I’m finally finally feeling healthy again – and I am.

But it seems the world balance is maintained in a see saw of life, and my husband’s son (1st marriage) who is in England working on his PhD was out on his road bike and hit (from behind).  He’s been in the hospital now for 4 days in either excrutiating pain or drugged out of his mind on morphine.  He sustained 2 fractured vertabrae, a compound leg fracture between knee and ankle, and a fractured ankle.

Thank goodness he wears a helmet so no head injuries or internal injuries that have been revealed.  But he is suffering.  His mom is with him in England and will fly him back to the states (CT) as soon as he is able to fly (months from now?)

It is SO difficult for my husband to be separated by the distance and dependent upon any news…  we just heard he finally was taken into surgery (4 days later!!) late today…he was supposed to go yesterday but got bumped.

So we pray and wait for news and for his recovery.

To all our friends, please say a prayer for him – he is only 29 and this is most likely going to change his health for the rest of his life.

    It is always something, and if it’s not, it’s ten other things. Don has had a long stretch of suffering as well, hasn’t he? So I’m sending love and best wishes to you both, hoping that all the shi#! in your lives gets over with in good order, and you paddle (or peddle) away from all the difficult times.
