Back to Cancer Journey
Last Year's Diary

Medical Diary, 2001
Year Six Living with Cancer


August No Activity There were no medical appointments in August. Except for getting her pain under control, Neila has not recovered from the fall in July, which is to say she is no longer able to take care of herself. She cannot walk, dress herself, go the bathroom, and even feeding herself is limited to drawing liquid through a straw. Using a spoon tires her, and she has trouble controlling it so food gets all over her clothes. Although she speaks very slowly and slurs her words, she is still fully aware of what is going on and what is happening.
