If it's not one thing it's another

Today Kay awakened with a new pain in the very lower part of her abdomen, right at the bottom of her incision area. Since then she has been pretty uncomfortable, so it has not been a great day. It looks like this is more of the lymphedema, as over the course of the day this has remained swollen, though not red, warm, or any sign of infection, and is not a hernia. I think this may be related to having a busy day yesterday, and not using ace wrap compression overnight last night. We live and learn. I thing just taking it easier is in order.

Except for that, not such a bad day. The sun shone most of the day, and we're hoping a good night's sleep will find Kay feeling better. If all goes well she has no medical visits, procedures, or even a blood draw for nearly 2 weeks.

Pray for healing and for the chemo to continue its job.
