Motivation

Medical Update

I have completed this months five day stint of taking 400mg of chemo (Temodar). I tolerated it well, as expected, but the last two days taking the drugs left me drained of energy. Two days afterwards, I’m still not operating at full capacity.

Personal Update

Based on more reading Tina and I have done, I intend on increasing my dietary vigilance. More juicing. More uncooked vegetables. Get serious about supplements, specifically vitamin C, astragalus and turmeric.

Up to this point, I’ve been a preacher of positivity. Having “suffered” a couple days of lethargy, I think about the people I’ve met who have been affected much more drastically than I. How does one remain positive when they have memory loss? Mobility loss? Speech impediments? Thought impairments? And even worse conditions?

Clearly I have little to complain about. In fact I often think that my quality of life has improved. I remain positive. I am motivated to keep healthy.

On a lighter note, I got a hair cut. I decided to shave hair from all affected areas and then do the same to the other side of my head so it is symmetric. That left me with about a third of a wide mohawk.

    Can’t wait to see that Friday! Just like Dad, always doing interesting things with your hair. I think he sported a special look at each of our weddings. The Mr. Mustache beard was my personal favorite.
