My wife was diagnosed with Primary Lymphedema stage 2 in both legs and stage 1 in both arms and hands last fall. She tries to remain as active , as she possibly she can . Some days though she is very swollen in her legs and in a lot of pain. Her spirits remain high , even though the lymphedema is incurable ,it can be managed with Compression bandaging and MLD . She does not have disfigured legs and am thankful for that , as this condition can cause this problem. She loves to scrapbook ,make cards and create altered art pieces , so when her brooch broke , I gave her a few years back, she created this piece as reminder of our love and that our are spirits are free to be happy and content , whatever the circumstances in life may be thrown our way.
