I had my physical therapy consultation last Friday...this week completed my first full week (2 office visits + stretches, etc., to do at home daily). I learned today they want to mix in some occupational therapy along with the physical therapy. Looks as if I will be a very, busy girl. As long as it helps/works, bring it on!

I am not enjoying the cooler temps...and to think it is going to get colder yet. Brrrrr.....

Happy Harvest!

Bad News...Good News

You may or may not know I had a MRI on my shoulder Friday. I've been struggling for a month or so with my left arm/ mobility. The doctor suggested to just go ahead and do my brain MRI (due mid October) while I was there.

Bad News: I do have a small tear in my rotator cuff and will be seeing an orthopedic surgeon on the 19th. Treatment TBD. If that includes surgery, I will have to stop my Avastin treatments because Avastin slows the healing process.

Good News: Brain MRI report was a "thumbs up!" PTL!!

The doctor is watching two Proteins levels. One is .60 (normal range .69-1.41) and the other is 6.0 (6.2-8.1). They are only slightly low, but would appreciate your prayers that they would rise to the normal range.

If you're reading this, please know how much I appreciate your continued love, support, and prayers...I am blessed because you are a part of my life!
