In case you haven’t noticed, it has been a while since I have blogged. Well one of the protocols has caused me to develop neuropathy. They do not know if it will go away in 6 months or be permanent. It involves, numbness, tingling and pain all at the same time and has affected my hands and feet. Hubby and I have been stocking up on soft towels, and looking for some comfy socks.Most of the socks I have tried have a grain which irritates my feet. Also have started ANOTHER protocol which is oral tablets, two weeks on and two weeks off. We go to get a blood draw tomorrow and see the oncologist a week from tomorrow. The main side effect of this protocol is abdominal pain. It is a lot milder than some of the other chemo treatments.
Even though I have had a lot of hand pain, I have tried to work through it and make some art. The first is a white charcoal on black paper. It is Ophelia from the Oasis, she is a black Lorikeet. The second one is a metal embossing of Sunny.

Hang in there! I’ve also suffered from tingling and skin and foot pain from the severe rashes that I get from food allergies. You’re in my thoughts. Want to come visit soon!
I am doing my best! Thanks for the love and encouragement!!!!
So glad to see your post. I know Ophelia. I cleaned her aviary the last time I volunteered at the Oasis. Neuropathy is a bitch. I have it in my feet and years ago when it first started, it was like my feet were in a hot fire. I wrapped them in lidoderm patches which helped a little. Fortunately, mine has lessened over the years. Have you tried diabetic socks? They are very loose knit and don’t bind your feet. Hope you feel better.
Thank you, Ophelia seems to be a favorite right now.
I will be looking at diabetic socks.
