Not the day I expected

July 8, Saturday

I guess the three days of steroids plus the steroid shot were still in my system last night because I did not sleep at all well and finally gave up at 6:45.  I felt fine during the day and did a lot of thinking work in redesigning a quilt I want to make but alter the directions.  Then I went and had a two hour lunch and long talk with some friends – that was a really nice time.  Then I came home and mowed my yard.  I finished just before the storm hit so my timing was perfect.  I’m really glad that’s done.

Then I rested a while and watched it rain.  I then went and bought waterproof bandaids so I can cover my incision tomorrow so I can go to the pool for a while.  The weather should be great and I have given the surgeon the week he requested before I go swimming, sort of.  May be a little short on his requirements but I think it is about healed anyway.

Now it’s after 9:15 and I am feeling a bit tired so I’ll shower soon and get to bed.  I certainly hope I sleep lots more tonight than I did last night.  I think I will since I had no steroids today at all.  Course, I may miss that boost of energy tomorrow.  I expect that if I will have an negative side effects from this first round of treatments and Neulasta, that tomorrow may be not as good as today has been.  I expect that I may run on less energy than I’ve been having, but only time will tell.

I’ve had a nice day today, though I did go by Bruster’s today and got ice cream.  Think that one visit will hold me for a long while though.

Morning weight was 218.  Not really going anywhere at all.  Maybe that’s not so bad.
