......ohhhh "what a long strange trip its beeeeeen......" Just back from a spinning class with Shanna (from Underarmour) in Baltimore...... THey've treated all three of us girlss and our spouses fantastically....had a thousand pictures taken in the photo shoot.....hopefully O will look decent in one of them......if you go into Dicks sporting goods or Nordstroms or anyplace else where they feature the Underarnour Power in Pink product line, you will see the picture of all three of us! They have asked me to be an expert health professional on their web site! They also are interested in having me appear at different educational events to talk about the benefits of exercise, eating right, nd how that helps with fighting cancer and dealing with exciting is this? Something I've always wanted to do.....just had to get cancer to do it I guess! Making an opportunitity out of an obstacle! Detter go take a shower now!

Everyone get in a workout today!

Can you beleive the cool weather! Good for working out...not so good for swimming and you may as well work out...Right! If you get in the water, you better swim just to stay warm! Swimming laps has been a much harder experience than I could have imagined after the surgery.....Oh well, guess I have to look at it from the standpoint that at least I'm doing something....just not as well as I used to! THis I think will be better by next year.....

Have had no more problems with clots, etc....all is good! 4 weeks down (and passed) 4 weeks to go for this accelerated ATC/PT bridge program, life is now studying and more studying. Will leave onThursday for the Underarmour contest winners photos, etc. THis should be an experience. Dave and I are looking forward to it. Bummed I will miss Alex's play in Batseville though.

Chemos have been relatively uneventful, almost no side effects....except they make your brain a little fuzzy and keep me up the night after. Other than that it's just one more thing to fit into the schedule.....

Soooo hope everyone is hanging in there.....I certainly am. and its been much harder than I could have imagined.
On a good note, I the Docs thought I had a blood clot Monday my knee. lower leg swelled, had to wait until Wed to get chemo, didn't have the blood clot, but now the swelling has moved down into my ankle.......oh well things could be worse!

hope everyone had a wonderful rained here all day so at least I didn't mind studying as much. I have decided studying and chemo don't mix too well....but I will persevere.

I continue to barely be phased by the chemos except for the fact I can't sleep. hopefully this will change soon. Noticing however, I'm more tired in workouts. Whether from lack of sleep, or chemo I don't know but lets face it if this is all I have to complain about....I'm doing great!

everyone keep up your own workouts!
