Breast Cancer



We cannot remember the last time we were so happy to be awakend by a cat scratching in her litter.  At 12:30am this morning, Lucy finally went to the bathroom and did both.  If you just start reading this journal, you will think that we are weirdos, so please read the previous days.  :-)

After letting the water run a little, adding a smaller (shorter) killy litter box, Lucy decided to use her regular one anyway and  long after we turned the water off.  Oh well, at least no trip to the ER today.

At 5:00am, Lucy was feeling good and herself again.  She was walking around, speaking, therefore waking us up, as she just wanted some attention.  She came to bed (our mattress is still on the floor) and lay down there to be held..... carefully.... without touching the tummy.  Once we were well awake, she decided it was time for her to leave and find another spot to fall as sleep.  That's our girl.

I will give her only one pain medication today instead of 2 and see how it goes.

Today was a pretty good day.  Lucy slept a lot, which is good for her.  I layed down and asked her if she wanted to join me for a nap.  Lucy joined me three minutes later.  She used to lay down on my side, but she was not comfortable as she did not want me to touch her tummy.  She lay down on her tummy, then slowly turn on her side, then on her back. It was so sweet.  No nap, just attention. I wish I was able to attach a picture of Lucy's tummy to this journal, but I do not know or see how. Ii may just add the picture to my photo gallery. Only 1/2 a dose of pain killer today.

This evening, we opened the bedroom door so Lucy can join us if she felt like it.  She came to visit us.  Going down the stairs was OK (we live in a duplex), goind up the stairs was a little more difficult, but she made it all by herself.

She is soon back to normal.  It was tough for everybody.  Next weekend, she should have her stitches removed and in 3 weeks, the first chemo session.  

I will continue to write in this journal if something outstanding happens, but it looks like Lucy is on a good way to be back to normal as she was before. Thank you all for your support and assistance during the last challenging few days for us.
