In the continuing saga of peripheral neuropathy (PN), the short sharp pains were almost absent yesterday (Thank God) and replaced by stronger aches in my feet and lower legs.
Tried ringing bells in a bell choir last night, D, Eb, and E, at the Chapel of St. Andrew. This also includes chimes of the same notes. It’s actually more difficult than it looks, but I’m getting the hang of it. I haven’t figured out whether all that standing helped or hurt the ache in my feet. I’ll stick with it either way.
Slept quite well last night, even through the blowing gusts of Hurricane Sandy that is giving us a glancing blow at the tropical storm level.
On Wednesday, I have my next blood draw to see how I’m doing. If my numbers remain good, I’ll continue with my curcumin therapy (still at 6 g/day). If they don’t seem as good, Warren and I will discuss my therapy options, that will, in this instance, most likely lead to a stem cell transplant early next year.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.
