Feel great right now

It's Thursday, and I feel well and happy for the moment.  It sleeted buckets in my area Tuesday and I felt incredibly lonely for my husband.  He would have loved it all.  The day before, in anticipation of snow,  I had piled up wood that had fallen from the oak tree in our front yard over the months that I've neglected it.  I covered it with an outdoor table cloth then made a wonderful fire Tuesday night.  I even took a walk in the sleet in the dark.  I felt so lonely and alive all at the same time.  My husband had this wonderful gift of making everything seem like a celebration.  It's a gift I cherish and will continue to strive to live in the same way he did for the rest of my life.  

My son and I took a walk in the park behind our house.  People were sledding down the hills in the park and my son texted his friends, who showed up to join in the fun.  It made me happy to see him happy.   I wished I was young and could sled down that hill too!  But the last thing I need is a broken bone.

I am so glad to hear you are feeling so well. I was thinking about you and wondering how you were doing.

It has been so cold where I live that no one can really get out and enjoy sledding (and I am too old anyways). The weather is supposed to finally warm up today so I am hoping it will help melt the ice off the walkways. I would love to get out and walk. I am so tired of being couped up.

I know about feeling cooped up!  It's hard.  But today turned out to be very nice, so I took a walk during my planning period.  Before I found out about my cancer, I would go for walks and feel so tired and out of breath, and I seriously wondered how I had suddenly become so OLD.  But walking felt just fine as it has now over the last few days.  I'm so glad to have the beginnings of my health back.  
Chemo is Monday again and I will be off for 4 days, but now I know the effects will wear off over the course of few days.  That's also good news.  I won't be sick the entire time between treatments!
