My first week at home has been so much fun. Campbell stayed three days from school because of the weather. The hardest part is I am constantly going and going. The C’s don’t stop moving. I am used to being able to sit when I need to. Besides that I am having fun. Next week should bring more of a schedule for our family.
I was asked about my health today. As far as I know I am doing good. The biggest struggle for me is the menopause symptoms I am having. Hot flashes are really awful. I remember as a kid making fun of my mom for having one. Not anymore!! I can count on waking up between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. from a hot flash. These things are horrible…my upper lip and eyebrows get all sweaty. I know it is not that bad when I don’t have to change my cloths.
The other big change for me is the hair. I swear I am plucking my chin twice a day for at least 10 minutes trying to get those little black hairs off of my chin. I am obsessed with getting them out. Recently, I tried so hard I have a scab on my chin!!!! Now if the hairs are not noticeable the scab certainly makes someone wonder.
I go visit my surgeon in Indy on Tuesday. Other than that I am religious wearing my lymphadema sleeves and taking my new drug femora
