I apologize for radio silence.
I think I mentioned before how the effect of this stuff is cumulative. Recovering from this last round of chemo is definitely taking some time. Thursday was the last day, and my stomach is still not back to normal.
Some nice little moments, however:
Yesterday morning. I woke up and was suddenly clear headed. After ten days of chemo-brain, I felt sharp, quick, lucid.
This morning, I rode my bike to radiation. First ride in over a week and a half. Even those of you who ride bikes daily experience that child-like AWE when you first get on your bike in the morning.. It glides, it swoops.. magically you stay upright. It’s heaven. All I can say is that when you take some time off, that feeling is amplified.
That’s it for now. More tomorrow.
