The good news is that I realized it this morning when I got up. My bones felt much much better. I stood at the top of the stairs moving experimentally. It has only been three days since I stopped taking the tamoxifen. In the hubbub about getting out the door in the snowstorm we were having, I'd forgotten to take it Friday morning, so Friday and Saturday and Sunday. I never imagined that I would see improvement quickly, but really, it's much, much better.
After yesterday's post, a lady from Pittsburgh wrote to commiserate with me. She remembered dropping her son off for a year in Japan. Pre-cell phones. Pre-skype. Pre-computer. She ducked behind a post and cried her eyes out at the airport. I would have too. How nice that someone would take her time to comfort someone she's never met. The world is full of nice people and I imagine that Cara will find them in Korea, too. I did, when I was stationed there in the military 30 years ago. I needed to be reminded of this.
I haven't heard from Cara yet, but she should be there by now. I am hopeful to have an e-mail soon.
I spent yesterday working on school work. I got 4 major projects done. For the first time, I found myself feeling 'ahead of the game'. I checked facebook, where we have an OT group. "What's the hand thing due tomorrow?" I blinked. 'Oh, yeah...' I wearily dragged my books back out and did that assignment too.
Let me get up from this chair and moving.
