My butt's numb

While I appreciate the doctor's efforts to reduce the amount of pain I feel during a bone marrow biopsy, I am not thrilled about the fact that I am numb from my butt all the way down the back of my leg to my heel on my right side. Makes me walk like I'm learning to use my limbs for the first time.

Today's biopsy is to gauge the success of my latest round of chemo (Blue ink!); we should have the results by tomorrow. If the results aren't good, like I've said, my doc has threatened to admit me immediately to start another round of something else. On Halloween. Like my favorite holiday, ever.

Sigh.

I love my life.

Also, Pajiba posted my book report for The Dud Avocado. Cruise by and read it. Then go read the book.

Well I don't know what to say - but know we are out here thinking good thoughts. I will stop complaining about what I am doing at work. Hope your mouth is improving. ( - :

I am working the prayers hard tonight for you. BUT... chemo is no excuse not to have a rockin' halloween costume. I'm going as Bristol Palin.

Happy Halloween! If you think your mouth can handle junior mints, I got your supply! I linked over to the book review and can't wait to borrow the Avocado Dud. Sounds great! Thinking about you.
