I am ashamed of myself

I am really ashamed of myself for staying away from my blog for so long.  Back pain has prevented me for doing lots of things in the past year.  After that pain I found that I had a prolapsed bladder caused by uterine fibroids.  When they operated just before Christmas, I was found that I had Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer.
I am now on a journey of chemotherapy and hopefully a cure.  So far, I have been lucky and only lost most of my hair.  No nausea or weight loss.  I go once a week to the oncologist for chemo.
I am now having a problem with shortness of breath on activity.  The Cardiologist findings are negative.  Next stop will be the Pulmonary doctor.  It is very frustrating not being able to do simplest tasks.  My DH and youngest daughter have had to pitch in more.
My oldest daughter Beth has gone above and beyond her daughterly duty by driving an hour and a half every week to take my to chemo as they wont let me drive myself because they give me Benadryl.
Beth is complaining that I haven't updated the puzzle, so I will make an effort to be more current in my postings.
