Still Alive With Number 5!
|My sweet infusion nurse, Therese, took this picture for me. I love this place!|
This is where I am supposed to be, moving forward...getting stronger. My family wants me to do everything I can to kick this cancer. I want to help them, but I have to help myself first. When I fly back and forth to Chicago every three weeks, the flight attendant goes over the safety precautions. When they talk about the oxygen mask, they instruct adults to put on their mask first, then help children with theirs. This reminds me that I need to get healthy first, before I can minister to anyone else.
Female in Motion Health Update: Did you notice anything different in the top photo? No mask!!! This morning, my bloodwork had improved enough that my doctor told me I could stop wearing them. I did get a little bad news...I'm going to lose my fingernails, and probably a few toenails, too. It's temporary. They grow back.
Female in Motion Exercise Update: I did one 15-minute treadmill workout last week. It was an experiment. It wore me out every bit as much as a 30-minute workout. I'm going to try and keep it up, though. I can use the stamina.
