This picture was taken on Thursday at Butchart Gardens. Loosing almost 40 lbs looks good, eh? ;)
It's already the August long weekend and E has the last of 25 radiation treatments on Tuesday. Then that part is done and we await surgery in five weeks. I didn't know how I was going to get through it, but I was there for every treatment. It will be wonderful to not have to go to the Cancer Agency every day. Our deck, loaded with flowers and comfy chairs, awaits. The weather is sunny and warm and the list of things to do is almost do-able.
Like many losses in life having cancer forces one to go through the grief stages. Today, I'm a little closer to acceptance but easily slip back into anger given a half chance. We just have to move forward each day. I can't let it get to me. I've had some chest pain and some nausea this past week. I'm pretty sure it's stress related. I see my dr in a couple of weeks.
Weight wise... I've dropped a half pound and saw 128 for the first time today. That would be an over all loss of 2 lbs since May, but those 2 pounds have been lost quite a few times. We have been eating out a lot lately. It's a strategy to save time and energy. I try to choose salads but then I'll have two glasses of wine and a dessert. Sheesh. The important thing is that I'm not putting on weight. I even got a couple of work-outs in this past week and plan on another one today. Now, without the daily trip to town, I'm planning on getting out of the restaurants and back into the kitchen.
Note for today:
If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.
I hope all my spark friends are having a good weekend. Hugs all around and thanks for sharing.
