I was feeling good enough last night to go bowling at my daughter Sarah’s house. Yep, we went upstairs and bowled a couple games on their new Nintendo Wii. Very cool. I bowled a 162 and didn’t even have to wear bowling shoes or breathe second hand smoke. The physics that’s in the programming that makes the pins fly when the ball hits them makes the game spectacular. Standing there and throwing a ball with a controller takes a little getting used to but comes pretty naturally. Katy played tennis and it was like she was getting a workout (and getting beat by some little guys with no arms between their hands and their shoulders). Peter makes tennis look easy.
We finished the last pre-chemo test today – a cat scan at MDA for their baseline. It took about three hours mostly sitting around. We’re getting better organized – backpack with water and juice, books and Sudoku puzzles (I screwed my up – the upcoming enema must have been too distracting).
Your comments on the blog are very comforting and the response from our community of friends is overwhelming. Doctor appointment tomorrow afternoon and chemo will start soon after.
