Since December, the house has been full of people. There were nine people, and yesterday it dwindled down to just the norm. Both my best friends left in the last 3 days, although one will be back soon. It’s really quiet, and I miss my family but it’s nice to have some “me time.”
I’ve been meaning to blog lately, but I’ve been so tired I just haven’t been feeling like it- obviously. The past few days haven’t been as bad as far as fatigue is concerned. I’m still fatigued, and the food aversion is crazy gross, but my energy isn’t as low if I get exercise in- a little tip I got from my radio oncologist. Although, I got too excited last week because he said 45 minutes a day and I went on a 2.5 hour walk, and tried to run at the end (60 seconds), and basically felt like I was going to die. I passed out for several hours as soon as I got home. Lol.
Also, Friday is my last day of radiation and I’m super hype. The section of my hair that totally fell out a couple of weeks ago is starting to grow back and radiation is not even over. The other part is still like, thinning out. Weird, right? I’m pretty sure I’m still going to cut it all off on Saturday. Also get a tattoo.
Today I bought, read, and loved Mindy Kaling’s book. It was a big deal for me because, a) I freaking ADORE Mindy Kaling. I want her to be my best friend. And b) reading, processing, and comprehending things since brain surgery is what has been the hardest for me. That was super frustrating because academics have kind of always been my thing. I had to reread a few things, but for the most part it was a really quick read so my brain is really starting to heal.
Wedding planning is all finished. Honeymoon is booked, bartender is booked, tables and chairs are, and catering is too. I’m glad planning is over. I can’t wait to be married and be with my Ally-Pop. I still can’t believe I’m getting married. Graduating with my Master’s, being cancer free, and getting married??? God is showing out. 2013 is kind of a big deal. 🙂
