Wow, this past month has just been an insane roller coaster.
The good news is my Sharon is doing almost 100% better now. She went back to work yesterday and seemed to get through very well. Though, we’re not out of the woods yet.
As probably with most of these things you really have no idea how bad something was until after the fact. Apparently, her cancer was allot more aggressive than originally thought. As a result the Chemo treatment is also going to be allot more aggressive than originally planned. In addition she will also have to do a couple of months of radiation treatment as well.
When that’s all said and done there is still one more step. The particular kind of cancer that Sharon had was estrogen receptive. Basically feeding off the estrogen her body was producing. So to keep the cancer from ever coming back we have to stop her body from producing said estrogen. Which means possibly another minor operation and for certain a hormone treatment she will have to undergo as well.
The good news is that we have tallied up the time frame and we should be done with this some time in March of next year, right before her 38th birthday. So I’m going to make it an extra special birthday celebration for her….shhhh, don’t say anything. It’s a surprise
To add to this adventure, things at work for me have been crazy. We’ve had lay-offs, restructuring, increased work load, increasingly more difficult to get parts, and nit picked over every little thing. With all the work I’ve been doing my one hope was that my pay checks would be at least the good part, but sadly, no. I think it may be time to move on because at this point there is very little hope of moving up in this company.
Well, I think I’ve bloviated enough for now.
Notice how there wasn’t one mention of the death of Michael Jackson….Oh crap…nevermind.
