Was wonderful. We had our West Seattle friends over for brunch, and the kids went wild for the egg hunt. In the afternoon/evening, my parents, Mike, Krystal and their boys Caleb and Joshua came over for dinner (mom brought leg of lamb, and we made loads of veggies to go with it) and the kids played and the adults chatted. I felt fortunate to have such a wonderful day.
AMAZING. There are 23 on our team officially, and we've collectively raised almost $22,000. I can hardly believe how wonderful these women are, and how fortunate I am to have them in my life. We have a guy on the team now, too - hurrah for Kevin for being man enough to wear pink and hang with the ladies!
I have work to do, and I look forward to moving forward with it. The program is awesome and I'm glad to work with it.
My body is not liking running right now; my sciatic pain (this is what inspired the bone scan last December...horribly painful at times but not life threatening as it turns out!) is returning and my body is angry when I run. I'm trying to do some non-impact stuff right now instead. I STILL plan on that marathon; I just need to work up to it slower than I had been, so I'm scaling back.
Pretty good, all things considered. I am regaining range of motion, I'm adjusting to the bigger-than-I'd-like-boobs, and my tumor markers are consistantly low. My thyroid is off and so we're working on getting that back together so that I won't be so **** tired - I'm really feeling fatigued right now for reasons I can't otherwise explain. I'm having Femara issues, too....joint pain, and the fatigue may be part of that. BUT it's okay: I am generally healthy and I can live with the side effects as long as they don't kill me! I also have a MUGA tomorrow to see if the occassional lightheadedness that I've been feeling, along with some other random side effects, are heart related (Herceptin) or maybe something else. I suspect that the MUGA will be fine...fingers crossed! I continue to take Herceptin.
In the Easter picture with some girlfriends I can't believe how 5 extra pounds shows on me!!!! I'm working on losing it. I hit "Lifetime" for Weight Watchers on May 25 and certainly by my 1 year anniversary of hitting lifetime I plan to have lost that. Harumph! I'm supposed to be in a bikini in less than two weeks....!
