The kiddos have gone to bed, The sun is setting and Jeremy is playing the guitar in the next room. It is nice to enjoy the quietness. We don’t get that much around here.
Today I went for my first physical therapy session at Bronson. They mainly quized me on what hurt, how I felt, etc. They measured how far I could lift my arms, movement, etc. I am really glad therapy is happening. I’m so determined that I want to get back to normal as soon as possible. I’m not miserable, but I wake up every morning thinking about the fact that I have to go through another day feeling like this. The physical therapist and I chatted as he was measuring and discovered I USED to do triathalons and he DOES them now (notice the difference…..lol). I admitted that now more than ever (since cancer) I want to be more diligent about getting back into swimming and running (the biking not so much). I’ve been eying the masters swim team in the YMCA brochure….he said not quite yet…..but soon. I really got the feeling he was looking forward to working with me so I can get back to living how I want to live.
All along this cancer journey I get the feeling people want me better. I have yet to meet a person that just doesn’t seem to care. So if you ever have to take this journey or are starting it and reading this…..there will be many along the way who will work with you, take care of you and want the best for you.
