Prayers were answered for me today. I was able to eat three meals today and none of them included Ramen noodles. My throat continues to feel better each day. I had a rough night of sleep so I felt tired most of the day. I called the doctor this morning to get an antibiotic for a sinus infection and to see if I could get help with sleeping. I think between medication and weakness, my restless nights need a little help.
Later this afternoon I decided it was time to take a shower and I knew my legs felt heavy and tired through out the day but figured it was from recovery of being in the hospital so long. My left leg was swollen almost twice it's normal size. I called Highlands but it was too late to go there but I talked with a nurse and they weren't sure what to tell me except get my legs elevated right away. Thankfully my DIL Jenna came over with her medical bag and checked me out. I have gained 10+ pounds since Friday. Normally that would have made me happy except my lack of appetite I knew it wasn't food related. My left arm was swollen as well. My blood pressure was normal. She listened to my lungs and was concerned about my left side. I've have been having shortness of breath since the weekend but again related it to my weakness. I talked to the oncologist on-call and explained everything to him and told him that I have an appointment in the morning at Highlands. I was afraid he was going to have me back in the ER but thankfully he told me to keep my legs elevated and to stop my IV fluids. Praying for great rest tonight for me and Tony.
I have another new favorite song that I want to share.
I know no matter what I am going through, God's great grace is with me.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
