I kept busy all day doing some house detailing so things would look Christmassy and ship-shape for Luke's arrival. You would think my joints would have loosened up at least part of the time, but not so. I've struggled all day. I think my fingers are even a little swollen today. They're especially bothersome today and, for the first time, my jaw is even stiff! I noticed when I was chewing my sandwich at lunch time. It still feels a little stiff if I try to stretch it. I've been off the Arimidex for a full week, so I'm surprised that the stiffness is getting worse. I suppose the drug is still in my body and it took 6 weeks before the stiffness moved into my hands, shoulders and back. It hadn't occurred to me that it might still move elsewhere let alone my jaw! But I suppose I shouldn't be surprised about the jaw. It is bone after all. Dang!!
Today, I'm embracing Scarlett's mantra ... "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tommorrow. " ... because today is too exciting to be miserable about anything.
Thanks for your calls, emails, cards, thoughts and prayers. Know that you keep my spirits on the positive path.
