I think you should take a wee bit of advise from my mum who advocated listening to her bodies needs . If it needs to heal by sleeping , so be it . If it benefits from a walk , great .
You have been beyond incredible but if you need to rest I for one think you have earned it . Also if you have had additional chemo since your last surgery then you need to factor that in .
Your doing great ,
Thanks Stu. I had a good walk this afternoon but then we went out again after dinner to get ice cream and I could tell a few steps in I was overdoing it. My dress was rubbing my incision and nothing felt good. I told my mom and we took a quick walk thru a few blocks worth of park and came out at home. We rested several times.
Tonight I checked my iPhone and it said I went 2.5 miles today. Today was definitely a turning point for me in my healing so I am feeling happy! I think up until today there was a part of me worried if I could do this again but I know I can.
Really missing my husband though. He’s too busy at work to even text much. He shoots in LA tomorrow and then takes the red eye home.
Kemeny wants a CT scan on Sunday, and then we have follow ups with her and a surgeon (maybe Dr Angelica filling in for Kingham) and a pump fill. And then we go home.
