Sunday was good

Yesterday was a good day for mom. She was quiet and peaceful, wide awake and watching TV.

When she's having fever, she makes a moaning-groaning sound that can get quite loud. This is as accurate a gauge of her temperature as any thermometer. When she's well, no fever, no pain, she's quiet.

She didn't sleep much last night but she was quiet whole night. This morning she has slight fever. Her doctors need to confer and decide on next move.

Meanwhile, her cemented fracture seems to be healing well. She won't be able to put any pressure on that arm or lie on her left side for about one month. Apart from that, no pain :) She had a session of gentle physiotherapy yesterday. Just to gently move her elbows, wrists and fingers on both hands and both knees. This is to prevent her from completely stiffening up.

Ok, last week ended on a good note. Let's see what this week has to offer. I'm praying that this will be a beautiful new beginning for mom. Her wonder drug Lenalidomide will be delivered this morning. If she can fend off infections for the next 2 - 3 months, this drug will make her feel much, much better.
