ready, set, go and think about anything but tomorrow


My monthly meeting is tomorrow, and I am trying to stay relaxed as I realize we will be discussing the status of this chemo regimen. Naturally, I am keeping my fingers crossed; I cannot seem to think much about anything else.

In the meantime, we are having a heat spell in California as, even here at the shore we hit the nineties the last few days. I have always liked the heat, though, so most of the time I am fine with it and avoid using the air conditioning during the day. Usually, the fan is good enough. I remember when I taught dance, I liked dancing in the hot months. It seemed to keep the muscles always limber and ready for splits and leaps. And, it was a great time to play tennis, again, with that heat keeping the muscles ready to pounce in any direction. All I needed was a bandana for my head, a sweatband for my wrist and my jug of cool water, leotards or tennis dress, I was always ready to go.

Now, I spend my time on the sofa or reading and surfing at the computer, so the heat is less a stimulant for action than a memory jogger. At least, it is a far better thought to remember past activities than to think (worry) about whatever we might discuss tomorrow.

  1. I try not to regret what i cant do anymore and focus on what i can do. However, i totally understand missing the healthier me! I have a very hard time accepting that that me is gone. I moarn that loss.

    Hope you get encouraging news today. The doctor apps are always double-edged…I want to hear good news but worry that it will be bad. I have another cat scan — that i begged for — in two months and I’m already worried about what it might show.

    Keep writing. You’re an inspiration in how to stay positive.

  2. Hope your meeting goes well, Donna.

  3. Donna…
