Ready, Set, Go!

Hello all! I hope you are all having a great weekend. I'm having a pretty good one myself even though today feels like Sunday! I hate when I screw up my schedule! Ha.

Today was the Pat Tillman race. I was by no means racing in this race, but I did finish it...all 4.2 miles for #42. I am so proud of myself and so happy that I did this. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but I didn't have any trouble finishing. There were 28,000 people there today...that's insane. I have never done something like this before and given my circumstances, it was definitely an accomplishment. It was great.

My PET scan went as well as it could have yesterday. At least I wasn't in pain and seemed to "enjoy" it more. I wasn't sitting there thinking is this over yet? Oh my gosh, hurry up, I'm in pain. I was thinking, c'mon cancer be gone, be gone, be gone, be gone, be gone. I almost got a little emotional, but you can't really move in the "tube" so I refrained...but I think maybe when I get my next scan the flood gates may open. Hard to explain emotionally, but in reality that little machine determines if I have cancer or not still left in my body. Pretty powerful machinery. Of course I have to wait until Wednesday to hear the results, but the wait isn't killing me...I'm OK with it. I have a good feeling.

I took yesterday off from work. I decided Thursday that my body was telling me to slow down and since I had a busy weekend coming up I needed to rest. Luckily I didn't have to be cooped up in my house, I got to spend most of the day with my Mom, Dad and brother. We went to lunch and then Mom finally broke down and bought a new I-Mac no less. She loves it. Ryan brought up Tillman and we all had fun spending time together. It was a perfect day.

I'm still tired of course and I have accepted being tired as normal now. It will be a daily recurrence.

Tomorrow I'm working (that's why I feel like it's Sunday today and tomorrow is Monday). Then, work on Monday, then I'll be off for at least a week again for hopefully Round 4.

That's about it from here. I hope everyone has a great rest of their weekend. Go Suns! Go Coyotes!

Till the next time...

Love, The Racer
