Bad Bad Jayde!

Well, in my last post I mentioned how I was unhappy with my range of motion.  Well, turns out it isn't the tissue expander sutures at all.  Actually, it is my fault.  Oops!  I guess my sutures have already dissolved so I can't blame it on the sutures anymore.  Due to my lack of arm exercises I've developed scar tissue and that is what is pulling whenever I try to use my arms.  So, what did you learn?  DO YOUR EXERCISES!  Don't be Jayde.  She said that I should be able to still get back to where I used to be (she's seen worse!)...but I need to really start to do my exercises.  The sad thing is.....I read my doctor's email last night and um.....I have only done them once so far today and it is almost 8pm.  I guess I'd better get off of here and go do some exercises.

Also, wanted to ask for prayer for my N's again.  I don't want to go into too much detail (since men read this too!) but they need some prayer.  I guess I'm having blood flow problems again that is causing some pigment issues [update from Kev: there are actually no blood flow issues, Jayde has healed excellently with respect to that, the issue is that some of the healing areas do not have the same level of pigment, that is all, typical of scar tissue, Jayde just misunderstood that section of an email from her doctor].  :o(  My poor N's.  They've been through a lot.  They need prayer.  If you don't know what an "N" can read this post.  I'm a little embarrassed using the "N" word so I just shortened it to "N's".  It just sounds so much better!

The doctor also told me why I'm having this weird feeling of cold sweat running down my underarm.  It is a strange sensation and there is nothing wet when I go to feel it.  I know, TMI.  Anyway, I'm not losing my mind.  It is the nerve sensation returning.  Yay!  Which is good news.  :o)

Each day I seem to feel better than the day before.  Which is such a blessing.  I slept better last night, but still had to keep waking up to reposition myself to help with the pain. I am so thankful though as it is not as bad as it has been.

7 more days until my next "fill" and 12 more days until chemo.  Eek!

  3. Hi this is Kevan, Jayde's dear husband (DH). I made a correction to her post, in brackets. Jayde misunderstood the reason for the light coloring in her "N's" area. This is not due to blood flow issues as Jayde stated. Those problems are behind her, now. It is new skin cells, some just without the proper pigments. I just didn't want anyone reading this to be confused or misled. Love Kevan

  4. Jayde, please do your exercises!!! I didn't know you weren't continuing them. I know it is somewhat painful and an effort to remember - but look at the alternative! I know you don't want that. Listen to your doctor!!! Sorry to sound preachy but this is reality! I know!


  5. Hang in there, its not near as far as it has been!

  6. Hey Jayde.. I am sure, you will overcome these days very soon.. keep the spark live forever.!!! and yes, do EXERCISE. God Bless you.!!
