Thank you everyone for your healing thoughts, prayers, and research on Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). I am finally home after 5 weeks. I left my house thinking I'd return in a few hours and instead it was a few weeks. So far in this short paragraph I have made over a hundred typing errors which I then fixed. GBS paralyzed my fingers, by at least 50%. I drop things, all day. EVERY thing I do with my hands is severely compromised. I can hold on to nothing--silverware, pens, make-up wands and brushes. The list is endless. I desperately want to tell about
the horrors of my 12-day stay at one of the best hospitals in Florida, but it will have to wait. Besides the hands problem I am also paralyzed in my legs. I am relearning how to walk.
I have an appointment in about
ten days with the neurologist who finally diagnosed GBS as it is he who will decide when I can return to my cancer treatments. I hope this huge delay between treatments ---I had 5 weeks of no treatment due to pneumonia just before my 5 weeks of no treatment due to GBS, I hope this huge gap in treatment doesn't worsen my chance for a full recovery from cancer.
I can't wait until the day I am only fighting cancer!!!
Best of health and positive thoughts to all who are reading.
