Exhaustion

In the span of a few weeks, I've gone from training for an 8 mile race to barely being able to walk to the end of the block. It's certainly humbling. Without delving into the nitty gritty, the first cycle of chemotherapy was no piece of cake. Days later, and I'm still exhausted. 

Thank you so much to those who have reached out and offered support and comfort to me and my family. I've read every note and taken to heart the kind thoughts.

Your body is doing a lot of work for you now. Rest, rest, rest, and let it help heal you. You are always in my thoughts.

I know a little bit about feeling like your body has failed you. Certainly not to this extent, but our inclination is to anger. I hope you can find a way to calming peace, realizing that your body is angry too and needs space to heal. Sending many heartfelt prayers and a few tears, too. Love you!

I'll update my status too. I had my left knee replaced 7 years ago. About 3 weeks ago had the meniscus surgerically fixed. I have good days and bad as it will take about 6 months to heal. Last night was awful but better today. Good days and bad days. Getting older is no picnic! On the upside I am a breast cancer survivor of 20 years! Thank you, Lord! Keep fighting, Sarah!

So sorry for this therapy which hurts while it heals. Just go with what your body says. It won't always be this way.

My mom use to drink a shake of bellpeppers with guava to help her inmune system go through.
