It feels good to get back to work and start organizing those things that need tending. There are many things I need to get done before my surgery. I want to get caught up with my psychological report writing and complete my professional development hours between now and surgery date of the 16th of December. I have been blessed that I enjoy what I do for a living. Seeing patients and keeping busy make me happy.
I went for a short bike ride with my daughter this afternoon. It was short and sweet. Felt tired but I was able to do it, praise God. I hope to build myself up over the next few weeks to help my body get stronger again and fight off fatigue and infections. I miss my long runs and bike rides. God willing 2015 will be a year of recovery and new exercise goals. I hope I get a new bike for Christmas too.
Honestly, I really don’t think about my cancer much. I know I have to have surgery to make sure the docs removed all the affected tissue, but it is just going through the motions. I am more scared of infection after the surgery and the weakness I feel. I am praying that I will be able to do my usual holiday exercises after this ordeal. That is, with God’s help and the shot my hematologist promised to give me before surgery to beef up my bone marrow into producing more white cells. I usually go for a 5 mile run as a gift to myself for my birthday on January the first. I hope I can do something, if not 5 miles, some type of exercise post surgery.
To all those that are tired, weak and heavy laden, Jesus is alive and there for you. Just ask and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are being heard and tended too. There is no illness, sin, grief or regret bigger than God. God bless.
