So Far, So Good!

Yea!  I am feeling good, except for newly diagnosed sinus infection!  But antibiotics should clear it up.  I don't have MS headaches any more.  I don't have the HUGS in my chest that make it hard to breath!  I am working on my walking and already have more muscle control in my right leg!  I have less tingling in my hands and haven't run into a wall since I got home!

These are all encouraging results and I hope to be healing for the next 2 years...sooo, I may get more feeling back!  We shall see!  I know I'll get more hair back!  That will be nice, this wig is excruciatingly HOT!!

I am feeling really good lately.  If I weren't bald, you'd never know I had chemo.  I have started yoga and can tell my balance will get better as I get stronger.  It felt different than before when I just couldn't get my balance even when I really tried hard.

I am doing everything I did before and just accessing my progress each day.  

I already have more energy than before the chemo, just get tired at the end of the day.  I am also thinking much clearer and not getting headaches.  All wonderful gifts the chemo has brought about.

Feeling better everyday.  Thought I had an ear infection, but I am just having severe allergy symptoms and need some decongestant.  That's a relief.  Headaches are rarely happening at all and I think the  ones I'm getting have to do with the congestion, so those should be gone soon.

Still get tired, but that's to be expected.  Feel pretty much like myself now, just not able to do as much.  Will work to continue building strength and endurance.

Some MS symptoms still causing problems, but am staying optimistic and waiting for them to diminish.

It's so hot here!  I love Scottsdale, but it's tough when you're gaining strength back.  That sun is brutal!  Continuing to stretch and trying to do more everyday.  

I need to sunscreen myself and get in the pool eventually.  Maybe I'll get in this evening when the suns not on the pool.  That would be good exercise.  

Getting stronger everyday and washing my hands like crazy.  Slight germaphobe.  Better safe than sick.  Talk to you later.

Nothing new to report.  My recovery is boring! Haha. I just move around the house doing chores and lay on the couch between.  I drive Jessica to drum lessons now.  That is good, gets me out of the house.  

Have other small chores to do.   Doing more everyday, have done more than I should have a couple times, but being it was for my daughter and one of her best friends, it was worth the down time the next day.  

Love my kid and her Dad was out of town, so when I was in charge, I had to be Mom.  She does her work, she gets privileges.  He's home, so he can take over rides and stuff.  

Feeling better everyday!
