    Hi Kimba,
    All we can do is just take one day at a time and try to keep positive thoughts going. I realize that's not always easy with having other health issues on top of having CA. I have chronic sciatica, so I sympathize with you having arthritis on top of everything else. Let's stay in touch as we take this new journey in our life. Wishing you the best outcome.

      Hopefully the days will pass quickly for you since you will be so busy at work. You deserve to come home and do nothing. Keep your feet propped up and relax. Good luck. Take care. Happy Thanksgiving!!

      Maybe you can bring in a tall stool or something like that so you can have a moment to sit. You are not at 100% yet, for sure. It just takes at least as long to get back to a kind of normal as it did to go through chemo. You probably qualify for accommodations - such as being able to sit down at times through ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). It applies to short term disabilities, such as recovering from chemo, too. On the other hand - wonderful that you can go back to work! I hope someone else is cooking you a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday.
