Write Something Today

I started using  a Full Focus Planner, and I put on my daily list to “write something” the last three days in a row. Monday and Tuesday I deferred it to the next day, but today I was determined to get thru my list. A lot has happened since the last time I wrote something.

I had my 22nd heart cath and my biopsy came back with no rejection! All of my labs came back fine and my heart is doing well. The hematologist is still mystified by the bruising I’ve been experiencing for several months. It started before I moved back home and has only gotten worse. They are now looking for genetic forms of anemia. So far I have genetic markers for two, but why would their symptoms show up now and not earlier in my life. For now I’ll just deal with the bruises. They aren’t life threatening in any way, just an annoyance really. Especially when one shows up in an inconvenient place, like my face.

I’m still dancing, only one day a week but it’s a start. I’ve been loving it! Loving it so much that I took the leap and registered for school to get my degree in dance. To get prepared for a heavy schedule of dance classes starting in the fall I hired a personal trainer to get me into shape. So far I’ve been getting my rear end handed to me. I’m taking a Buff Camp five days a week and following a strict meal plan. It’s taken some getting use to, but it’s totally workable. If anything it’s a lot more food than I’m use to eating, but with my increase in activity I need the calories. The next thing I need to start working on is my flexibility and balance. Bother were affected by the lack of mobility while I was sick.

I’ve been trying to get to yoga twice a week. I can’t express how relaxing it’s been and healing. It seems like such a simple thing but it’s been working for me. The challenge is going to be to figure out how to fit weekly yoga with my school schedule, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
