That said, things are looking better tonight. Tony has been trying so hard to get out for walks so as to break the vicious circle of fatigue and lack of energy. However, he hasn't been having much success. Every time he takes a walk he has to go for a nap because he's exhausted. How far should he push himself? They say chemo patients should listen to their body, etc. But tonight... Tony asked me to help get him out of his "rut". And maybe, just maybe, that's just what I needed to get out of my own "rut".
We all went out to watch Richard play his first soccer game of the season (he scored 3 goals), and I think we all felt better for that brief interlude of normalcy. It's very difficult not to look back and think about how things used to be... and not feel sorry for all that can no longer be... for now, at least. But, if we are to get through this with our sanity intact, then we have to stop comparing today to yesterday and just appreciate what we have NOW. Hopefully, I will be up to the task.
Well, I hope I haven't been too depressing... But I am feeling much better - thank you! I hope you all had a great weekend...
Take good care!
