    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  0.00 miles;  Running Total: 237.91 miles)

    Day 275 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    Sundays are my laziest day of the week.

    I took two naps on the couch.

    I wore pajamas all day.

    I was quite happy to let Justin go grocery shopping while I laid around and read a book. (Right now it’s awesome sci fi nerdiness in the form of 2312, by Kim Stanley Robinson.)

    I walked less than three thousand steps when every other day this week I walked anywhere from eight to thirteen thousand.

    Later in the afternoon I even found myself sitting alone in the living room when Justin woke up from a nap. I was sitting on the couch staring up at the TV.

    He looked from me to the TV back to me. “Where are the kids?”

    “Upstairs.”

    He gave me a funny look. “So you’re watching iCarly by yourself?”

    “Oh,” I said, only then realizing why he was looking at me funny. iCarly is a kids show. The kids had been watching it with me, but at some point they both abandoned me for other things. “I guess I am.”

    Luckily the show is super cute and totally worth watching for Jerry Trainor’s antics alone.

    Today’s silver lining: Just another lazy Sunday.

    Saving all my energy for my last three radiation treatments.

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!

    I have lazy days like that and there is nothing wrong with me. After this radiation therapy is over with are you done and in remission?

      Honestly, I’m not sure what the term is for ‘after treatment’. ‘Survivorship’, maybe? I know ‘Remission’ is after five years, so I’m not there yet.

      As for what happens after radiation, I know I’ll start the breast reconstruction process over (the plastic surgeon will start inflating the tissue expander again). Also, I’m sure there’s a detailed plan for monitoring me after treatment ends. I just haven’t had that conversation with my doctors yet. I think they wanted to focus on getting me through radiation and see how I reacted to that before giving me a look-ahead plan. Their motto seems to be ‘focus on one piece at a time’. And I can’t argue with that. The entire process can be very overwhelming if you try to take it all in at once.
