Last time I talked to Carole …

I know all of you are worried and we haven’t posted for a few days.  I talked to Carole Thursday evening .. she is still in a lot (LOT!!!) of pain from the surgery to remove the tumor.  Jimmie made a few phone calls and was able to get her into a pain management doctor .. my first thought .. that REALLY should be what doctors at a Cancer hospital would think of first thing .. geez!  anyway .. he was able to get her in and the doctor ran a few tests .. she has nerve damage in her arm .. I do not know if it is from the surgery or the tumor caused it…

She will be going in for more tests and for pin point pain management in her arm.  She can’t use it .. it just won’t move.  You know how we say .. ok lift and you can lift your foot, arm, leg .. what ever .. well she tries to lift it and it’s a no go, can’t seems to get things firing from her brain to her arm.  So right now she is still in a lot of pain, still has no use of her arm but she is functioning a little better:)  Takes a long time to get dressed .. has to do everything one armed.  The kids are wonderful at helping her:)

I received a beautiful picture of her and Tiggani .. QQ00QQ .. hmm Tiffani:) so am posting it here:)  this was just taken today .. her smile makes me cry .. it’s still beautiful .. I love you Carole .. I love you so so much!
