I haven’t been in a doctor’s office in 2-1/2 weeks!
Instead, I go to the gym – trying to increase my endurance and chip away at the 15 lbs I gained during treatment. Also hoping to be ready the next time one of my old employers needs a Zumba sub! I wear a goofy do-rag to squash down my hair, which still wants to stick straight out, especially when it’s wet.
Range of motion in my left arm is about 90% and the radiation burns are mostly healed.
I’ve been on a few very slow jogs. It’s like starting all over again! (Anything’s faster than being on the couch, though, right?) Selena, I’ll move to the trails this week if the rain stays away – maybe that will make it more enjoyable!
I’ll also my dermatologist this week for a post-radiation skin cancer check and meet with the Y’s Wellness Director, as part of the Winship at the Y program.
The rest of the family is great, too. Joey ran a PR this weekend in a 5K road race. He and Sara had a special date at the Girl Scout Father/Daughter dance. And Sam, after winning a huge trophy in Kid Chess – 2nd place in Blitz – capped off his week by dressing up as a 100-year-old for the 100th day of school.
Our thoughts are always with the Oregon Chases.
