Finally got that dang boot off yesterday...that was a lonnnnng three weeks!
It was hot and heavy and my hips complained quite a bit.
Need to walk gently for a week and see if the immobilization worked to heal the tendon tear.
It felt AMAZING to get out there for a 20 minute walk today, during the coolest morning we have had in weeks...so far, so good!
AND...spent a few hours at the beach with my sister...another pleasure I have been denied.
My foot feels a bit strange but methinks (I hope) that is just some unused muscles waking up.
Wish me luck!
So, my son had a scan this week...Dana Farber still wouldn’t let his wife in with him due to COVID but she went anyway and waited in the car in a park (for 6 hours!!!) so she would be nearby and be with him for the two hour ride.
The results were about the same...no new tumors but some bit of growth of the existing ones.
Once again they will tweak his chemo to try to reduce the uncomfortable side effects and he will continue that every other week for as long as he can stand it.
In the meantime they will look for any trials he maybe eligible for..
Patrick’s 50th birthday is the 11th.
We weren’t able to find an amazing substitute for our great family trip that was planned but they are going to a hotel in nearby Newport and we will join them for a birthday dinner...getting a takeout meal for a wonderful seafood restaurant we all like.
Patrick really is fine with a scaled down celebration.
His priority is family right now.
Everybody...stay safe..stay sane...stay home!
