Tuesday Morning

Visited the clinic yesterday and received another IV, had blood drawn and saw my doctor (3 hours). Everything is going well. No more shots. I asked my doctor why I was so exhausted. His response: "Because I hit you with a bus!" hmmm. It feels like that some days. It will take a few months for the energy to return to some semblance of normality, but it is still great to be home. I have now instituted daily short walks to get out of the house, to get fresh air, and to try to help with the fatigue. These next months will undoubtedly teach me some patience. Love, Dan

Hi Dan,

We tried sending a message last night but apparently it didn't get through. Anyway, we hope you had pleasant dreams last night and enjoy an even more pleasant walk today! Love, Lynne and Spike

Good Morning Dan!! I'm thrilled to hear you are going on short walks. It should be a beautiful day today. It's easy to get discouraged when you feel so wiped out. Be gentle and PATIENT with yourself, please. Your body is working very hard to heal and it needs all the rest you can give it. Have a lovely day! See you soon.
Love, P
