As the chemo wore me down this past week, I found myself spending a lot of time resting and napping, and my mind was often foggy. Limited energies were spent on managing my meds to address variations in my condition. I anticipate increased challenges after each treatment so indeed this past week may be as good as it gets for a while. I focus on one day at a time, and was grateful to regularly rest up enough to "power up" to capture moments of normalcy, such as:
A few meals at home with Amelia's 8 cycling friends last week, who get together annually since biking across the country in 1991; Saturday's short bike ride to the airport to watch a 100-year-old WW I airplane (originally built on South Hill!) take off and land, and then eating ice cream with my dad; attending Sunday's Unitarian Universalist service and socializing afterward, topped with Apple Festival's Piggery pulled-pork sandwich; almost daily 1.5 mile walks around the neighborhood; grocery shopping; attending Cady's Senior Night after her last home swim meet last night.
