Two Weeks of Teaching

I find that when things get a little crazy, I hunker down and avoid the outside world. Silly, I know, because these are the times I need my friends the most. At my job, I am working with a very supportive group of educators. I’m working on learning the school attendance and grading programs. Junior High kids are a lot of fun. They are at a unique time in their lives.
Regarding the radiation – it must have done it’s job, because the pain in my tail bone has gone away. I still experience weakness in my legs, however. I’m only 4 weeks out in a 6-8 week recovery period. This Monday, I have an MRI that will give us more information. My February visit with Dr. Wolf in San Francisco was pushed back to March. I hope we know more about this leg strength thing. I’m still going off the steroids very gradually.
My main issue these days is energy. I need a great deal of energy to teach. I covet your prayers for strength. I’m pretty focused on teaching and grading papers!

hang in there Sue! I think I LOVE Procrit to battle anemia, maybe you need to make sure your Doctor is a fan of procrit during treatment...

Hi Sue,
My husband Hamada had radiation to his spine between 5-7 and it was very successful for him. A little painful after, for a week or two then a lot of relief, it has so helped him - just thought I would pass this on.
Keep well and very good luck with all your treatments.

Just two months ago Sue posted this note to her blog. And now she is gone. I'm sure she never thought this would be her last blog post but as I re-read it I am struck by a number of things. There are themes here we would all do well to remember to put in our lives every day...Working, Learning, Strength and Keeping On...these were things Sue was doing until the very end. Thank you Sue. I cannot believe you are gone. Rest in Peace.
