Apache Junction, AZ High 73 Low 39
We (or I should say I) had a really wonderful Thanksgiving at Rod’s house. The food was fabulous but Jim couldn’t eat and he slept the whole time we were there. He’s just not hungry and if he doesn’t eat that really messes up his blood sugars. So it’s been interesting trying to get him to eat.
Monday I took him to get his cancer scan done. Tuesday we saw the cancer doctor and came out of his office on a big HIGH. Don’t have to see him again for six months and that is always such a relief.
We also saw the lung doctor on Tuesday and his breathing is okay but she wants him to do some pulmonary rehab as soon as he’s able.
Then today was our visit with the surgeon - LOW. Jim is still in a lot of pain and his incision is draining constantly. After checking him out the surgeon made arrangements for Jim to be admitted to the hospital in the morning for surgery. He explained that a lymph node is leaking and it needs to be repaired surgically. He should only be in overnight and he will come home with a drain like he had last July.
We’re hoping that he will only need the drain for a couple of weeks and then he’ll start feeling better and be able to enjoy Christmas.
