As most of you know, Diane is away visiting her mom.  Usually this would mean a nice little break apart from each other; Diane gets precious, quality time with her mom and I get to batch-it with our boys.  I usually tease her that I do not miss her, even though I do.  I was looking forward to it, I figured if she was not here reminding me what was to come, I could relax, take it a little easy, have a break.  Concentrate on work, get a lot accomplished there.  No such luck.  😦

Analogies, some people love them and some cringe when having to listen to another one.  Last night I was doing a little blogging, a little reading, a little more research, and making more preparations for mobile blogging.  My version of multi-tasking, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, but not at the same time.  The one constant was that little bit of doubt in the back of my mind and the fear of complications from the upcoming surgery that will be there until Diane is physically recovered from this ordeal.

We just got back home from the evening church service and follow-up pot-luck dinner.  Diane is doing better coping right now, today was a much better day than last Sunday.  We had a little chat with the pastor tonight too, letting him know more details about the schedule, etc.  People are already letting us know that they will be helping with meals when Diane gets back home from the hospital.

The surgeon wants Diane to keep taking the Tamoxifen as long as she can handle the side effects.  There are meds that the surgeon could prescribe to help Diane deal with the side effects if she would be taking them long-term, but with the surgery coming up the surgeon told Diane she could quit the Tamoxifen if the side effects started to be a major problem again.

Diane has been back on the Tamoxifen for ten days and was doing pretty good until the past few of days.  Sunday she was tired and a little bit down, it was a rough day.  She has been telling more of the people she works with, and more people at church about what is happening.  I am sure that has also contributed to her current state, along with the Tamoxifen.

Diane is giving the Tamoxifen another try after a one week break.  The side effects had subsided and it was comforting to see her return to normal.  The side effects that caused the most trouble were the lack of energy and the difficulty concentrating on the task at hand.  The type of work Diane does requires attention to detail at a high level and that is difficult to do with a lack of concentration and energy.  The other side effects were more of a nuisance and caused a certain level of discomfort.
