Today, it was much warmer and my son and I went swimming. I had waited all day to find out if I am starting Chemotherapy tomorrow and I did not get an answer from my Oncologist, so we figured it was off for this week. It was time for me to get moving!. It felt very good and I enjoyed the vitamin D from the sun. It is important to get a little sunshine. The water is great as it is low impact, so while I was swimming, my arthritis pain was low. Tonight, I am exhausted, but it is a good kind of exhausted. I recommend swimming if you are in a lot of pain due to the low impact.
I ate well today. My daughter made me Oatmeal with raisins in the morning before she had to go to work. She had a mishap morning of the coffee pot not working and going all over the counter. Then she got a cup of coffee out of it to take to work and when she was rushing out the door, bumped it and it flew across the livingroom. I get frustrated when I see how hard it is for my children to work and take care of me. I am so lucky to have them. It is very difficult for them to do their work, live their lives, care for me and take care of the house, chores and try to make the bills. This month they had to spend so much on things I needed, that my daughter does not know how to make the mortgage and my son does not know how to make his rent. I get so frustrated that it costs so much to survive. I keep praying for health, but we still need financial help as well. As I say to myself, “My cancer is going away, My cancer is going away, My cancer is going away and Money will come, Money will come, Money will come.”
Let me share a good recipe….For dinner my daughter made pasta with artichoke pesto she got at Trader Joe’s which was about $4.00. She added margarine, garlic, Italian parsley, and shiitake mushrooms. It was delicious. If you like artichoke and mushroom, you will probably love this. Remember to eat your veggies.
Get some fresh air and exercise.
