2020! January no medical tests or appointments scheduled. February only has a port flush scheduled. March is local ONC, labs, scan, and the Boston ONC.
12/02/2019 labs showed CEA 0.6, CA19-9 12, CA125 50. Cause for concern, so the CEA125 was redone 12/19/2019 and came back at 36.
Last PT was end of December, and I went to the local gym for the first time to start my on-my-own workouts. Even got my husband to agree to let me drive once the roads cleared of the last snow. My 2-lb and 3-lb hand weights arrived and I was all set to begin my total on-my-own PT.
I got to drive for the first time since end of July on Tuesday. Yay! Except...
I followed the transport carrying my husband to the local hospital. He'd fallen on our back steps on his way to the gym. Nothing broken. He's wearing an immobilizer and using crutches. He has an appointment with the orthopedist Friday.
My revised PT workouts:
Lifting his leg several times a day. Whatever he did to it resulted in his inability to lift it at all. I'm sure his leg weighs more than my little weights.
Steps on my watch are totally at least 1 mile per day. Stairs are at least 5 flights. (14 steps up to our 2nd floor.)
Drove daughter to school (she's assisting in a classroom today) and I was amazed at the muscles it took to scrape snow and ice off the car. Ouch.
Other than not being able to return to work at the moment I am doing fine in my new role as caregiver. We'll know more Friday as to the extent of his injury and what the near future looks like. For now I keep him from doing crazy things, make lots of tea, and have time to sort through my mom's boxes which has been sitting in my office area almost 2 years. All is good.
Wishing everyone a healthy new year!
