Small Update

 I went in for my every Thursday treatment yesterday, was having alot of pain and swelling in my foot/leg area. They came up with a plan to try to get me some relief, first they ran a Doppler on my leg to find out if I had good blood flow, in which it showed that I did and no clots. This is a good thing, but then you ask yourself what is the problem then. The next thing I am to do is meet with one of the massage therapist that specializes in Lymphedema, I meet with her next Tuesday to talk, discuss & hopefully come up with a plan, so we will see. This sounds like it can be caused by a number of things in which I have had most of, so just chalk something else up to me. But I'm in hopes that she can give me some answers or she may not come up with anything, I will just see on Tuesday. So this is all I know for now, I will post again after I find out something next week.

While its still May

I haven't posted in quite some time, thought I better get at least one in before May turned into June.  I can't believe that summer is here, in more ways than one. The weather sure feels like summer time, it should be July anyway with temps like we have had. Things are going about the same with me, I've been feeling so-so except I'm having alot of issues with my left leg and foot, swelling as well as pain. I ask myself is it a clot or is it just my bad veins flaring up or is part of it the neuropathy or a combination of all of it. I have had issues with swelling before but it never has been this bad, the pain hasn't been there like it is this time so I'm not sure what's going on, I go in for treatment tomorrow so hopefully we can figure out something. I have done pretty much nothing today, kept my leg elevated most of the day. Jonah will be here afterwhile, he will stay for awhile this evening, I'm sure he and his pa-paw will be outside later. They will probably be watering again like they did the other day, it's really sad that you plant flowers or put out trees then all you get to do is water them, but you do it to keep them alive.
Well enjoy your evening and in advance enjoy the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend!!!
