I just had my deck refreshed...new railings, new decking (where it was needed) by my neighbors Larry and Mike. What an awesome job they did. Call me if you need any work done, they come highly recommended. Now I just need a paint job an I'll be good to go.
I'm adjusting to the fact that my lung capacity sucks. I've been using the scooter at the grocery store, a wheelchair to get into the Storm game, I try to avoid stairs unless I'm going down. All these changes seem to be making my breathing easier. It's hard to give up the freedom I used to have but if I didn't make these changes soon, my body would have done it for me. I have so much help around me that I'm never without someone lending a hand to make a job easier for me. Blessed, I tell you.. Blessed.
Wednesday is a big doctor appointment day. We'll be deciding whether to continue with the Tarceva or not. I'm ready to be done with it. No changes. Nothing is improving. Just more chemicals going into my body. I think I'm ready to just let my body have a rest and follow the course that was meant for me. Not giving up, just following a new path. I want to feel as good as I can, for as long as I can and if that means living on hopes and prayers then that's the path I'll follow.
I love you more than all the friends I have in my little green book,
Big Dreamer Dor
