It's good to be home! Here I am again, back home in beautiful San Diego. The weather has been fantastic, I'm sleeping in my own bed, and spending my time with my family. The kids had a great summer with Grandma and Grandpa, but I do know they missed me and Steve, so it's wonderful to be home with them again.
I'm feeling fairly well... still a fair bit of chest discomfort from the pleurisy, and plenty of nausea and vomiting from the chemo and IV antibiotics. But, I am able to get up and around and do some slow walks with the dogs (and Steve, the poop master), play some cards with the kids, and even cook some easy meals. It's all progress, and that's all good.
As far as the study goes, I don't need to return to Chicago for 6 months, so I will get some time to heal and relax here at home.
Or maybe not... for tomorrow begins the new school year. 4th grade for Luke, 7th grade for Jake, and all that entails. Tennis every day after school, homework and projects, lots of running around... I will need to pace myself. And, someday soon I hope that I will be able to return to my horseback riding and maybe even tennis again. One can always dream!
I'm off and slowly walking, and will keep you informed of the progress. :)
