Fluffy Susie T. with her lovely 24/7/30 companion-- aka lymphedema bandages.
This is what I get to do the next 4-5 weeks, 24/7. It's called manual lymph drainage (massage) and lymphedema wrappings. As you can imagine, it's extremely difficult to maneuver around the kitchen and takes even longer to type one-handed--or rather, 1 handed and 1 pointer-finger. So this is an opportunity and a favor I'm requesting, from all my buddies in the blogosphere! Lymphedema is a huge inconvenience and takes life-long attention, but I am blessed that the surgeons were able to get all the nodes out of my left arm, because there were 14 of the little bastages out of 34 that had active cancer in them, and they've given me a longer life. Sure it has it's moments, but I live to love my family and friends and I'll take that.
