[cancer] There’s a fog in the lowlands

Last day or so my emotions have been pretty foggy. As I told , “My head’s full of chowder, so ignore everything I say.” Monday afternoon K— came and watched movies with me. Yesterday afternoon I went to the not-Fireside Writers Group and actually Got Stuff Done. This morning I kept a trainer appointment at the gym.

Somewhere in the middle of working out, my head cleared again. Hooray for endorphins! I have no idea if it will stay clear today — my pre-test anxiety has been pretty powerful. But it’s nice to feel like myself and not some peevish git, at least for a few hours.

I’m on clears today, no food at all tomorrow until after the colonscopy, then only very light intake until after Friday’s CAT. will be here this evening. By Friday afternoon all this upset should be gone like summer morning mist.

    From a guy who’s been there, done that, worn the sexy ties-in-the-back mini dress, I can say, yeah, I’ve muddled through that fog.

    It still moves in from time to time. But these days, it doesn’t stay long.

    Workouts help. So does putting miles between you and the last cancer surgery. Just keep on truckin’, bub.

    Wishing you all the best, Jay, and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers…

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers…. How scary. Hope everything goes well for you….

    I sent a twitter today, but found out that twitter just changed and a person won’t receive messages unless they are following you….

    Take care!
