Dragging ...

This is not what I expected when my doctor said I might experience fatigue after radiation. After all, I survived two newborns and all the sleepless nights associated with raising kids. I've been tired before, but this is a whole new level of exhaustion. My body and brain both feel drained and sleep only provides a limited recharge. Add in any activity tougher than sitting on my butt and I wear out faster than one of the boy's RC cars!

I thought things were improving when I knocked several things off my to do list before lunch yesterday and still felt good enough to offer the punks a trip to the pool. They ditched me for friends, so I sat down to read for a few minutes before tackling another chore since I was feeling so good. When I came to three hours later – curled up like a pretzel in my chair – I didn't even remember closing my eyes.

I know I'll get through it – it's not like I have a choice – and I've gotten through all of the touch stuff already. This too shall pass ... and it can't be fast enough for me.

  1. Great angle on the second shoe. Yes yes I know you wrote some pretty heavy stuff and I read it but sometimes it's nice to appreciate the talented artist whose life has been saved. Thank you for torturing yourself in the name of continued breathing. We love you.


Thank you for visiting! I'm so happy you stopped by!
