What a wonderful feeling

I had a great day yesterday with a lot of energy and not a lot of pain. I still can't lift more than 5lbs and I need to be careful of how I move as I am still healing on the inside, but it is great to not be confined to the couch. I was pretty sore at the end of the day because I moved so much. It was well worth it and nothing that a couple of pain meds didn't take care of.

I took my shot last night at 8:30pm and then laid in bed. I became a little light headed, but nothing like I had experienced in the doctor's office. I also got a mild headache, but that was it. I slept all night and woke up feeling great. It is now almost 3pm and I have felt great all day. I am going to follow the same routine tonight and I hope to have the same results.

Good job Tina,
Hopefully your night time treatments will continue to help you press forward in your recovery. We are praying for a healing and your body to have the strength it needs to get you through this difficult year. Here's praying that God blesses you everyday in some small way that you will recognize.
Love ya, Mom

Tina, Impressed does not begin to explain how I feel about how you are attacking this. Being proactive and positive like you have been, is what’s going to get you through this. I always knew you didn’t take any S#@T, but damn! I’d hate to be melanoma in your body right now. Stay positive, the girls and I are praying for you. Let me know if you, Todd, or Teya need anything at all.
Love,
BM
