Had to leave the super bowl party early because my legs just gave out. I have rested, and we will try the casino hotel for two days and lots of oysters. Sadly, I will quit walking in the next month if not sooner. This is hard, but the pain has not been as bad as three weeks ago. One week to scans and shots........will get a better idea on the timetable at that time. My body is making a gallant fight, but the weakness is simply too much. I am a skeleton which will fail any day now.

Thank you for the update, Sea, even if the news is not so great.   Very glad to hear once more that the pain has not been quite as severe, but the weakness has to be deeply discouraging, to say the least.  Well, do let us know how the hotel/oyster 'treatment' works, and I hope the shots next week will help, too.  Please share at that time, if you're willing, what the scans reveal.  Fingers crossed that it's better than you anticipate.

The fight for life gets less fun as you near the end. I hope this visit to the casino will get me plenty of protein, and with the wheelchair allowing me to tool around lifts my spirits as I can go right from my bed to the mississippi stud table. I will shower on my own this morning. Those days are coming to an end also. We have good grab bar placement in the shower.

Good show, Sea, showering on your own.

Do you still use the foam neck brace when playing cards? Just curious whether it helps. Glad the motorized wheelchair does. So when do you go? May the weather cooperate, whenever, and I'm with Joani - may you have fun!

Just had a pretty good day at the hotel/casino. Biggest loss of the year over the last two days, but we had this wonderful lobster brunch with all the lobster you can eat as a freebie, but with what I lost on the carnival games, I could have bought ten lobster dinners.

Weakness continues, vision issues, pain on the bone mets has suddenly increased, but overall quality is much better than the last three weeks. They gave us another free night, and we will leave sat. morning and go to the granddaughter's basketball game, and reunite with our dog who is dressing up with the girls and having fun away from the fuddy duddys.

Our friend who went psycho prior to her breast cancer surgery will be visiting us next week. Not needing to listen to crazy, but the wife thinks now that the surgery is over she is no longer afraid, and closer to normal.

So a bit of a roller coaster ride, eh, Sea?  Down on the gambling loss, up on the lobster (yum!), down on weakness, vision issues, and increased bone met pain (rats!), up on the better overall quality of life, extra free night, upcoming grand's basketball game, and seeing your great pooch again, who is "dressing up" (??) with the girls.  

Quite a rich and varied existence you're still living, it seems.

So what did pathology say about your friend's cancer?  Lymph node involvement or not?   Since she's apparently calmed down some, I'm thinking not, but what do I know?  She herself should certainly know by now, if she's shared with you and Mrs. Sea.

we will see her as our granddaughters play each other sat morning. I have instructed my wife to ask her not to talk to me. I am having trouble speaking as all my muscles are failing. Scary day as my left leg and foot lost all feeling as I struggled to get to the bathroom. Wiped out in cards. However, it is apparent now I will be bedridden soon and we are talking about weeks......so being out and watching my granddaughter and losing after a six month huge winning streak.........that is life.....a wonderful thing.

Pure Seaoat.

Sad to hear of your increasing difficulties yet great to see you still have such appreciation for the miracle of life. Please stick with us as long as you can.
