I could have slept better but going back to bed until 10 am made up for it. I got up to do the morning routine of needle jab, taking the pills, chatting on FB, lite breakfast. Around 11 am it was time for lunch which was an egg omelet with bacon and some yummy cranberry juice.
Then it was time for a walk with the dog and Peter. Sophie is so good at catching the Frisbee when we throw it. The fresh air felt good and spring is definitely in the air.
This has been a lazy day and I got to sit in my new chair and watch some tv which doesn't happen so often these days. I watched some of my favorites which are "A House in the Country" and the Ellen show. It felt good but a little restless to not be doing anything like I am used to. Sometimes times goes by too slowly. RELAX
We ate a dinner of excellent leftovers and then I drove Peter to the airport so he can work in London for a few days. Peter's mom Eva is staying with us while he is gone. I didn't know how I was going to feel, so the extra help is really appreciated.
Driving home from the airport I had time to reflect a little as the music was blaring in the car. One of the most interesting and fascinating things in this whole ordeal is the human interaction and how everyone handles it in a different way. CANCER
The outpouring of love and support has come from many different people, some who surprised me and others who don't seem as engaged or maybe don't know what to say. It is what makes life so interesting, I think, this human interaction. Because isn't that what is important in life? How we relate to other people, how we value the time we spend with them, what we share with each other and the impact of all of these things on our life and on each other.
It makes us all better people when we appreciate all the good things in life even when a lot of things are just shit or are outside our control. But how many of us really do this everyday?
Arriving home from the airport it was then time to drive Kevin to and from his American Football practice. Now everyone is in bed and I am actually a bit tired.
Even though I have a lot of energy these days, I still need to pace myself because this is not a sprint but a marathon. This will be a challenge for me.
A good day today because the only side effect so far that I am noticing is a minor heartburn from eating food that my body now all of sudden thinks is too spicy.
LOVED. GRATEFUL. KICK CANCER'S ASS. RELAX.
