Good Days Ahead

May 14, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I've noticed today that there is a difference in how I feel compared to my previous experiences after chemotherapy. Fatigue is the primary result of the medications I received. That fatigue is most evident physically. I can do do a few things but I rapidly tire. I have not lost strength, just energy. I know through the rhythm of recovery that my energy will eventually return.

The good news, as my wife likes to say, is that I do not have emotional fatigue. I am more aware of what is happening to my body. My anxiety is less because I know more about the treatment and the response of my body. I have evidence that the treatment is working. I do not feel like I am surrounded by mystery. Knowledge is power.

And today has been another day of watching Judy garden. I think she is having creative fun. I know we are both anticipating the beauty that will soon appear in color and form. She even bought me a Japanese Red Maple today that we need to think about where it could be planted. Put our imagination to work. Good days ahead.
