Just the Facts: Tracy and I celebrated our 20th anniversary today! Thank you for the good wishes!! We look forward to about 50 more. Tomorrow (Thursday) will be a follow up appointment with my plastic surgeon. Surgery is next Tuesday. The week is flying by.
Details: In addition to celebrating, we also moved completely out of my fitness studio space. (We lost the space because a long term tenant signed a lease for it and the 2 adjacent units.) However, I also learned today that my neighborhood swim club has approved my proposal to rent the clubhouse for my kettlebell classes. This is going to be a perfect solution for us, and the fact that it happened today confirms to me that it is right.
Tomorrow I have to take Mitchell to the dentist for an appointment at 9:00 and then get him to school. That will take most of the morning. I have an appointment with the plastic surgeon in the early afternoon, so the whole day is pretty much gone. I have a lot of loose ends right now and am trying to fit as much in as possible. I know I won’t get them all done and am trying to make peace with that and just breathe whenever I stop long enough to think about it. The “planner” in me wants to check things off my list, at the expense of taking any rest.
Me: Besides being busy and somewhat frazzled with my to-do list, I feel very relaxed and at peace about what is to come. I have a confident feeling about the lymph nodes — that they are going to come back clear. So much so that I rarely think about it any more. That may change as we get closer, who knows? But right now, I just see the surgery as a process to get through and get back to life.
Other: Working on a Care Calendar as a way to organize care needs. Look for it in the next day or two. I can’t tell you how much your comments, support, tweets and prayers means. Thank you!!
