Oh, hello there. (Bob Ross voice)
It has been a while since I've posted I'm truly sorry. Once that needle comes out I'm worse than a Mexican jumping bean - all over the place and can't be stopped.
I've actually been thinking about exactly that recently: back in November and December, I found myself questioning if life ever would be the same. Of course in many ways it most certainly will not, but I specifically thought about the physical aspect of what was going on. Before all the symptoms hampered me, I would consider myself to be a pretty active guy, trying to participate in a variety of sports. Then after the surgeries, I walked whatever short distance I could hunched over - a far cry from racquetball or squash days. It's unbelievable how far I've come and hopefully I can continue to progress towards full health. Maybe I enjoy getting out and golfing so much because it brings me back to before everything happened medically. Or perhaps I enjoy it just because I physically can do it - something that shouldn't be taken for granted.
That all being said, this heat wave is seriously cramping my style. Like legitimately a month ago it was a high of 50 here. I remember it vividly. Insane weather.
So what else is new? Nothing! I'm boring I told you. Just trying to plan out the rest of my summer now that I'm starting to see how I feel at certain points of each chemo cycle. So many things to make sure I do and see when I can. Which leads to another point - there really are some great people out there. Thank you to all of you; the amount of love, support and continuous generosity that has been shown time and time again to my family and me is simply unreal. It, of course, does not go unnoticed, ever.
Since the heat is unbearable...WiiGolf today. I'll update with a high score soon.....shooting for that -18 still. Later everyone.
