Bear with me as I back peddle the days in order to catch my non facebook folks up to speed. I've copied and pasted FB posts as it paints a pretty accurate picture of the brief comings and goings of The Christie's as of late. Here we go:
March 15th: I'm in so much hip pain I can't even walk and on so many pain meds
Hey There, we r still good. Haven't eaten much and have slept a lot today. Our biggest challenge of the hour seems to be figuring out how to calm my hip pain. It excruciating and I am having pretty severe reactions to all the big drugs that work. We thought the methadone was working this morning, but my blood pressure dropped really low and my heart rate went up to 170. Not fun when u feel faint and have docs rushing in your room. It was really scary. They think it was the methadone. My body isnt used to stuff like that, duh! Lol Now no more methadone for me either. We are waiting on the dr that can do the spinal chord ablation procedure but they aren't sure he can fit it in his sched. In the meantime, I'm just weak, nauseas, and have pretty much slept all day. I love u. Jeff is here, Z is playing with friends and Grammy and we are doing the best we can. I guess you can say, we've made it to the big leagues. I'm going to do this!
I miss my little guy like crazy. He misses mom too but we are juggling as best as we know how. He's been having tons of fun on play dates and BBQ with friends. Z has been having fun. It's night times that get a little hard naturally. All and all we are making it work and going to do everything in our power to stare this ugly monster down.
I haven't even had any IL-2 yet. Please Lord, keep my body strong so I can endure the road ahead
March 17th: Happy St. Patty's wear your green :-).
Dr. "V" (full name too long) came by to see me last night late. He said, "I think she is a good candidate for a cordotomy. There are two considerations. First, we need to follow her blood counts to ensure the procedure is safe. Second, the procedure is done in the ct scan room. Unfortunately, this is not something i can arrange on the weekend. Will find out first thing monday when we could schedule.
If my counts are ok and there is availability, I may be having this procedure on Monday. More info. as it comes. Just finished my chemo. Feeling pretty nauseas
but ok. Love you all. ♥
March 18th: Here's the scoop: when I'm MIA WITHOUT report from FB, I'm in "special territory"
