A Week in the Life of Dollycas

It was an interesting week around here.

Z Z Z sleepTuesday I went for my weekly appointment for treatment of the ulcers on my leg and had to share there was a new sore on my other leg. Surprisingly there is no real pain on that leg but the debridement of the sores on my paralyzed leg was intense and when the numbing medication wore off the pain was intense too. Thankful for pain medication I was able to finish my workday and went to bed early. Wednesday I woke up feeling good, but by mid-morning, I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. I told Mr. Dollycas I was going to take a short nap. He checked on me at 3 and I got up to write a review that had to post the next day and went back to bed. (Thank God, my husband proofread that post and fixed it before it went live the next day.) I slept the rest of the day and night away.  I was still feeling a little rundown the next day but could handle all the tasks I couldn’t handle the day before. I felt better as the week went on but was still a little tired. I will discuss this with the doctor at my next appointment on Tuesday and with my other doctors if this fatigue continues. I have had fatigue issues since I began my cancer treatments but nothing this intense since I finished the treatments. Hopefully, this is just another little blip in my life.

Friday Daughter #2 had her wisdom teeth out. She has been having issues for years and finally decided it was time to get them out. She had purchased all kinds of soft foods and a special ice pack and who knows what else but by yesterday she was doing really well and following all the oral surgeon’s directions. She even felt good enough to spend time with Charlotte. Charlotte who is going to be 2 in just 4 days.

Kaden started football practices this week and I can’t wait for the games to start. Natalie has started volleyball practice and she loves it. I am sure Remi will be starting football practice soon and Thomas has been enjoying his soccer games. School starts for the older kids next week. Where in the world did the summer go?

How was your week?

  1. Well, that sounds like quite a week…here’s hoping for a better week re sores etc…
    Sleep is a great healer….

  2. I’m very sad to hear about the new sore and the pain and the fatigue. Let’s hope next week is much better.

    Summers seem to be getting shorter. The days even seem to be getting shorter.

    I see a lot of great Christmas cozies in your future, Lori!

  3. Sorry you are having more issues with sores and such fatigue. That is frustrating.

    I miss having football games to go to now that my boys are all grown up. It’s definitely fall in Wisconsin when football happens.

    Look at all those Christmas books coming up! Looking forward to hearing about them.

    Hope you have a better week coming up!
