6 May 2018, Health Update

p.s  I have been searching my mind for the proper description of the paresthesia of my feet for I knew I had experienced these symptoms before.  Finally it dawned on me.  We all have had ‘numbed’ feeling in one or the other foot sometimes after sitting crossing our legs for a period of time.  Upon rising, not only do we have a heavy ‘dead weight’ leg, but also sensations of pins-and-needles tingling in the toes, accompanied often with a loss of balance.  This describes the way my lower extremities have been for at least three weeks, much more prevalent today.  Although able, I walk very unsteadily today.  Hopefully having stopped the Abraxane last Thursday, these paresthesia symptoms will slowly improve.

  1. Dear Franklin!
    Thanks for your updates. We are praying for you and we miss you dearly. Meide says that every time she cooks delicious food, she thinks of you and wants to give it to you. It’s a shame we’re so far. Despite the distance, here are some words of encouragement to share:

    “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

    Love you always,

    Fu family

  2. Hi Franklin,

    Thank you for your continued updates. I hope that your neuropathy improves. I think Linnea’s idea of a walking stick is a good idea. As always you and Linnea remain in our prayers. Blessings to you.
