Keeping on keeping on - just. Ps lots of pictures
It has been a while hasn't it? I didn't mean to be absent so long, sorry. How have things been with you? Good I hope?
It's been a mixed kind of time for us chez Moggie.
I made cards again. This was my first venture into cards in a long while. I thought Samhain was a good time to start.
I found it therapeutic stencilling, glueing and painting.
Not sure who for, but it was the doing that was important.
Close ups - just because
I knit a sock on our visits to oncology
I did a shawl for a swap and a cowl for a swap. Then decided maybe I ought to knit a cowl for me
I did another box, just because I wanted to
I spent lots of time this past couple of weeks at doctors with Mr Mog
Trying to find the right painkiller combination as the back pain moved from lower back to under the shoulder blades and was so painful that breathing in hurt
We spent Monday at the ambulatory care unit at the local hospital while they did tests to see why painkillers weren't helping.
Chest X-ray, ecg and blood tests came back ok, apart from the White blood cells being raised
Doctor decided not to do scans as Mr Mog is at oncology this next week
We went back to doctors for different painkillers as yet again they were only taking the edge off the pain.
We went back again yesterday for more drugs and these helped a little more.
But night wasn't good so today doctor added in diazepam to help with muscle spasms.
We wait for Tuesday, wondering if the cancer has moved again. It's going to be a long weekend
But friends are due to visit and that will help. Laughter is a great distraction and knowing people care. The doctor is wonderful, an old fashioned type of caring doctor .one who has asked us to ring him after oncology to let him know how we are and what has happened.
Isnt that good?
