Rolling with the punches!

You know what is awesome?  Its Thursday!  And even though it has been a really rough week, Im going to 
roll with it.  

Sunday I actually went for a run before noon!  And Monday I made 3 miles, pain free!  That was the highlight of my week so far.  I may have been slow, but I got there and I didn't feel like my insides were beat up afterwards!  

Tuesdays I had a follow up with my hematologists.  My labs have been all over the place but yesterdays results are in and my INR is on its way back down.  She also put in an order for a home testing kit for me.  If it all goes through, my veins are going to be very happy.  I can handle a weekly finger prick!  One less needle and bruise, Ill take it!

Yesterday was bad.  My meds sucked all the life out of me.  And I could not hydrate myself enough.  I didn't keep any of my food down.  But it made me angry and managed to clear up a few piles of paperwork and mail that had piled up on my desk.  And God bless left overs.  Man am I glad I made that big ole lasagna Tuesday night.  No cooking meant I could get some rest. David ran out and got me some Gatorade after dinner which seems to be helping!

And now its Thursday.  I crawled back in bed after dropping Ant off at the bus stop and sending David off to work. My sister was up early, so I crashed.  Didn't wake up till noon.  I had a sandwich for lunch and its staying down! Knock on wood.  

I had planned on running 6 days this week, but since I'm rolling with it, I've knocked it down to 5 days and yes I know that means I will lace up for the next 3 days.  I got this.  Right?
