Wow, it’s been a while since I posted. But, that would be because I’ve been very busy.
Mother Hen is doing well. She has her ups and downs, and we have a few new problems to deal with. The good thing is that the last two checkup MRIs show *NO* new tumor growth. YAY!
One of the challenges right now is getting her used to a CPAP machine and mask. Turns out she not only has sleep apnea, and not only has severe sleep apnea, but she has BOTH types of apnea. Until then I didn’t know there were two types. But, yep, there are:
Obstructive sleep apnea, the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea, which occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. – Mayo Clinic
When Mother Hen does something, she really does it!
She’s also on a new brain chemo that is put directly into the brain through her Ommaya reservoir every 2-4 weeks. This chemo is causing us a lot of issues, as she’s sick with it for 3-4 days after.
Because of everything going on, it’s been hard to write, but I am getting a little done. I participated in National Novel Writing Month and managed 60,000 words across several projects. I didn’t get the last Dreamer’s Cove novel finished, but I got close! I’m now puttering away this December of finishing the first draft.
In novel news, the next String Weaver book is nearly ready to push out the door. I’ll announce it here when the time comes.
Whew. Life can slow down a little now! 😀
