I hope that it is possible to 'take a breath' every now and then. Been listening to a little Joni Mitchell lately to calm things down.

I have Joni in my playlist Neil young , CSN and many others.  Pink Floyd under influence of morphine was interesting!

I will help as soon as I am able. No better cause than this. Pray for the comfort about that which is out of your hands.

It's no fun being in a hospital...unless you make it fun somehow.  :D

 

Blessings and Strength to you Barry. We have you in our thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself!

Update January 21, 2023

 

In December I had a 10mm titanium rod 

Inserted in my left femur. To repair a hole caused by myeloma which had metastasized to my bone.  In getting physical therapy things were improving nicely until I injured my right shoulder. 

 

Initially, we thought it was a fractured collarbone, but in addition to the clavicle, I have a torn rotator cuff, which put my physical therapy on hold. Suddenly I had

New pain in my thigh, which led to x-rays than an MRI on my back. Apparently cancer has metastasized to my to my lumbar vertebrae. In fact, my entire vertebrae, except my neck is affected by the myeloma. The next course of action is daily radiation over the next few weeks to my L4 vertebrae.

I am in severe pain and hospitalized for pain management. 

 

Anyways, I wanted you guys to know what was going on and why I have been absent for so long. I have been hospitalized since before Thanksgiving. I really want to go home. I realize that my time living alone is limited and will probably will be in assisted-living in the not so distant future.

 

I hope you guys have a great day!
