What causes the "rubbery legs" -- is that chemo, the lung cancer, anti-
depressants? Would like some info to share with my Dad when I see him.
VA called. The doctor wants her to go back to U. of PA for another test next
Hope I can swing it. (Rich has to make other arrangements and he's in
Saturday so he won't have much chance to do that.) The following week is Sabu
the shmoo's appointment so if possible, guess next week is best for me.
VA said something about a bus that goes from Hellertown to Phila. then take a
to the hospital. She's going to look into it more.
Dad seems in a resonably good mood.
He was telling me more about his "mantras" ...adding that anyone who'd have
him would have thought he was nuts. I said, "Oh, I doubt that....but they
would have thought that you'd become a Budhist or something." He laughed.
I asked how he's taking the chemo. Told him some people find it harder to
time goes on and others seem to tolerate it better. He said he thinks he's
better now than in the beginning. He's adjusted better. Just gets scared
legs feel "rubbery". I told him that's from the treatment, but also probably
after such a difficult treatment, he's probably too sick to do much and his
get enough exercise. I said that after I get over the flu (or a bad headache
bad -really bad- for days) when I've been lying around a lot I'll find
it difficult to climb steps at first because I feel so weak. It just takes
persistence to work those muscles. I hope he goes for physical therapy.
Woke up with a headache today and the cats were *really* bad all
tripping me and yelling, etc. I still love their furry little faces. They
pitchforks on some days), but a blessing none the less.
Did you get the numerology report I sent you on your name?
Just thought it might be fun.
I love you, as always,
