Man, am I glad that I don't have to undergo radiation therapy. I am so busy with OT and lymphedema clinic appointments plus my regular life that I don't know how I would find the time or energy. The lymphedema therapist taught me a lot of things I didn't know about taking care of my scarred breast. Working on range of motion too. Had a massage on my tied up shoulder muscles on that side today. What a relief. I think I'll get a few more to see if I can keep it released. I've begun to notice that as soon as I get rushed or tensed, my shoulders tighten up and recede into my ear lobes. LOL

20 mile bike ride yesterday was really good. I have a hard time holding back. Both therapists have told me to back off a little. Sigh. But I do want to take care of myself and not make more problems. Have a busy week-end with a conference in Chehalis on Saturday and chores on Sunday. Trying to make sure I get some exercise in too, even if it is just a short walk.

And so it goes. Life is good and the euphoria lingers. My life is filled with joy and wonderful people. Who could ask for much more than that.

    It was a good conference, Music Teacher's Association. But it addressed some issues that I'm working on with the OT's also. How to hold your body and be balanced. Move from your core. Etc. Some very talented students played also and I had a nice social time since we carpooled down. Now for my nap:)

    I'm glad you're doing well! I've been meaning to stop by your caring bridge page but haven't had a chance to. I know it's hard to hold yourself back and not push yourself too hard. I'm in the same position sort of with my leg. Hope you enjoy the conference this weekend!
