I took an unplanned blog break for no apparent reason. One day I woke up and decided that the only way I was going to be able to get more steps and increase my health stamina was to walk more and spend less time on the computer. So that is what I have been doing, enjoying life along the way. Chemo takes a lot out of you and now that I am no longer doing chemo I've slowly been regaining my health.
I've been taking walks, going to the ocean, planting flowers, doing household projects, doing more housework again (and happy to do so!), and cooking. Most days I can average 3000-5000 steps before I run out of energy as the chronic fatigue still lingers. Life is good right now and I am trying to enjoy every moment of every day. Life in pictures from the last month:The above photo was taken about 2 weeks ago. My entire scalp peeled but I didn't lose my hair, the final round of chemo just reeked havoc on my head. I have lost about 50 percent of it and it is really thin in places but starting to grow.
I got the Pfizer vaccine in mid-April. I was booked for the end of April as someone who has a compromised immune system I received a special letter to move up in the queue. I drove Mom to her appointment and it just so happened they double booked her and as I qualified to get the shot immediately they gave me the shot. Hubby is set to get his mid-May. For anyone not in Canada our vaccine rollout has had many problems but mostly lack of access to sufficient vaccines means that many are not vaccinated yet.
And that's what is shaking in my world. Life is good. Every Saturday Mom comes over and we either get takeout or make supper. This past weekend I made chili. It is so nice to be able to do normal things like make supper and plant flowers again. I apologize to my fellow blog readers, I've not been around much to read and post for good reason. Likely my blogging will be taking a back seat to real life now but I will be checking in once in a while. Take care my friends!
