It sometimes seems as though life just takes you from one experience to another…and without waiting for you to catch up.
I just completed six-weeks of radiation treatments, five-days each week, on the 2nd. That’s a lot of riding and at today’s prices, a lot of more costly fuel. Oh well, what price health? The treatments were scheduled for early afternoon each day, each appointment went off without a hitch, and I was in and out very quickly each time. I can’t say enough nice things about the staff at Bayhealth in Milford.
The preparations, travel, and after effects consumed the better part of each day, and adjusting to this confining routine took some doing. The most detrimental side-effect for me was fatigue which really began to ramp-up during the second week. By the time I arrived back at home each day and had eaten my main meal, I had all I could do to get to my recliner. Even with an hour or two of rest, I found that I just didn’t have any energy and couldn’t focus on things that required any degree of concentration. I didn’t lapse into a “boob tube” malaise, however, I found I just wasn’t interested in very much of anything. But I knew I had to try to do a little something each day, and managed to complete one or two lamp projects. Paperwork of any kind suffered, I’m afraid.
Now, almost one week to the day from completing the series, I can honestly say that I feel like my old self. Hope I can stay that way for awhile. Getting back into the routine feels good and I’m looking forward to finishing each lamp and reconnecting them with their respective owners.
Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding! Thanks too for your heartfelt support and prayers.
