2011.05.20 Life As A Cat

This must be how a cat feels. I need to rest/sleep at least as much as I am awake each day. The steroid dose I am on helps greatly with the headaches. I still have headaches, usually daily though.

I love being off chemotherapy. At least I can't blame myself for getting sick. It is nice to know I am not causing any of my fatigue either, like when I used to take thalidomide. Here are a list of all of my current problems: partial paralysis of the left side of my body, loss of almost all of my left visual field, impairment of my coordination so I can't walk well, button my pants or shirts without help, general vision problems (blurry and sometimes double vision).

I am grateful I am able to be home with my family right now instead of in some care home.

Thank you so much for the update Russ, wow you are being so brave and amazing and positive.
I love your updates so continue to do so as much as possible.
So are you able to sit in a chair and watch TV and things like that still?
Take care, Auntie L
