My dear followers. Need your thoughts and prayers now for my father. He is in the hospital. He has had several minor strokes, close to 12. It is causing cognitive problems and his blood pressure is through the roof. Medication can help and is our primary source of therapy at this point.
And then there is my platelet count. It is low, very low. So my oncologist can’t administer chemo therapy because the drugs could cause internal bleeding without the ability for the blood to clot. The condition is called Thrombocytopenia. As a result of this turn of events I have reluctantly and at the heeded advice of my doctors decided to stop working. I am not going to smile and put on a happy face. My body needs to heal and it can’t in a state of stress.
So this is one of those points along the journey when I throw up my hands and think … this is bullshit. I am so over this. But we have to paddle through it. One stroke at a time. And by stroke, I mean stroke of the paddle. Send healing thoughts my way and my father’s. We need a little love right now.
