Feeling fine


My last blog entry painted a pretty awful picture. Yes, it was unpleasant and yes, it was scary. But that was Monday and this is today. I want to share that tonight I’m feeling really good.

A friend called tonight at 10:30, thinking it was 9:30. After a half hour, he was yawning and falling asleep on the phone. I, on the other hand, felt jazzed and energized; this after spending the day at a client site in the City; and this in contrast to feeling exhausted most nights before 10 o’clock for the past four months.

Feeling this good after being off chemo drugs for three and a half weeks gives me hope that once the whole experience is over I’ll get my energy and spirit back fulltime. It’s a small glimpse of the big picture.

Glad to hear you're feeling better, Ceil. I was so worried while reading Tuesday's post. My gut was screaming "Oh my god! Oh my god! Is she alright?" while the logical part of my brain had to keep saying "For crying out loud, of course she's OK. She obviously got through it and is well enough to write about it." I had a good laugh at myself afterwards and thought you might, too.

Hi Laura!

I'm not always so clear headed these days, but I recognized last night that I might have left friends in a state of concern. Sorry to have put a scare into you!

I look forward to a time when I can take my energy for granted again. And I thank you for the kind thoughts that will help me get there!

Life goes on....
