I have not written anything for several days now and I just wanted you to know that I am doing fine. I am healing nicely after surgery. I was extremely tired and had some pain, which was to be expected from the big surgery I had. Earlier this week, I started feeling more energetic than I have in months and scheduled several things that I had been putting off due to the tiring side effects of my cancer and its treatments.
Once you start Chemo, you cannot go to the dentist – even for a cleaning. Since I have another 4 to 6 months of Chemo ahead of me… and… since it was 5 weeks after my last Chemo, I received permission from my Doctor to get my teeth cleaned. I was so exhausted after that little routine event that I took a 3 hour nap after I came home!!! There went one day!!!
I had a free massage given to me and took advantage of the opportunity and had my massage on another day. It was sort of interesting because we had to be careful of the surgical site and work around that, but it did feel good! Thank you, Michelle!
Then I decided that I had better get that Garage Sale done this weekend. It was a success in that I got rid of lots of stuff and it went quite smoothly. There are several things that I’ll be putting on Craig’sList and I know that they will go to other homes. I love to recycle!!! I will try to keep up on my cleaning so that things will be ready for the next sale. There were boxes of things that I forgot about this time and so I didn’t get everything put out, but I will one of these days!!
And so, just know that if I don’t have a chance to write something, consider it “a good thing” and consider that I am feeling good. I’ll be writing more next week as I have lots to share with you. But, tonight, the night of the Garage Sale, Portland Firefly is VERY tired and already in her jammies and ready to veg out. Gosh, I hope there is a good movie on TV tonight; I was too tired to go and pick up a DVD. Now, back to the recliner for the rest of the evening!!!!!
