02-18-2011

Eye Appointment today with Dr Jaynes. I wanted to wait until the effects of the chemo and Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments had stabilized. Man that was an through exam, I think the best one I've ever had. My eyes had changed quite a bit. I was expecting that though. Cheryl helped me pick out the glasses. She is good at that so I went with what she thought. They talked me back into bifocals again, we will see.

  Other than that I tossed a dead skunk out of the yard the dogs killed, had lunch with William, talked to BB (cousin), fed the cows, finished the fence at Misty's house, dug a pit for Matt, fed the animals, and played with the puzzle. I'm wore out but it feels good to be tired from something productive. It wasn't a god day. It was a great day today.

Man it was nice for a change. Now if tomorrow is pretty, bike ride. Tuesday I start dr visits again. We find out if the Prednisone is working or if it ain't, well, hopefully it is.

Hi Anthony, although I've never had cancer, like you I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. I started treatment 2 years ago, and am also being treated for the common co-infection Bartonella. Some of the symptoms are: Polyneuropathy, brain fog, sore throat [mine was bloody], swollen glands, terrible feet pain, headaches, and fatigue among others. This sounds a lot like what you are going through. I had to find a Lyme literate Dr. to finally get help. Most symptoms are now gone. Thank you for your honest blog. It has helped me.

Hi Andi, They do sound a lot alike. I know you are in a lot of pain, I was. It was relatively new back then and only a few doctors would even consider treating me. All I was left with was a slight arthritic pains in my bones. But now I'm told the treatments are better. I'll keep you in my prayers. Anthony
