Good and Tired

Having a nice Christmas season. Things are still improving slowly. I’ve noticed I’m not as strong as I think. I went to two grocery stores today, not long trips. Made some sausage and sauerkraut. Turned out yummy. Home run.

Then I made some melted white chocolate with Mexican vanilla and Heath bits. I dipped pretzels and chex mix into the mixture. Turned out good. Really good. Another home run.

I am doing good. I got really tired while in the kitchen towards the end. Really tired. Had to sit and rest for a while. It came on rather quick and caught me off guard.

I got a bit frustrated, not having done much and becoming so tired. I had to go to a bigger view and remember it has only been six weeks since my stem cell transplant and only four weeks at home.

I feel nearly human now, especially after the pounding the Cowboys gave the Colts yesterday. I forget that my stamina and energy reserve is nearly zero. Much activity and I crash hard.

I have so much to be thankful for. I thank God for my family, friends, and improving health. I thank you all for your love, prayers, and support. I thank God I am here this Christmas and can share this story about being good and tired.

Yet another home run!
