Here’s what’s going on in my little corner of the world. I finished radiation five weeks ago. And after a couple of weeks, I realized that I wasn’t getting my strength back. When you’re undergoing radiation, your immune system puts all its efforts into dealing with the damage and it can’t always keep up with the other issues in your life. That’s what happened to me. My asthma got out of control, and I was coughing about two hours a day. It’s hard to build up energy under those conditions.
So I went to see the doctor who treats my asthma, and he gave me a whole slew of stuff, and about the middle of last week, the coughing finally subsided to manageable levels.
Since I was feeling better last week, I started to follow a more normal schedule. I worked half time, did a little bit in my garden, and did some research for the new novel. Next week, I’ll increase my work hours from 20 to 25, a workload that is going to be my new normal for the next few months. Then in late summer, I’ll evaluate whether it’s time to work full time again.
I suspect that I will start blogging again soon, perhaps at the rate of two or three posts a week. Right now, the bigger priority is to put in some regular hours on the new novel, which basically got shelved the whole time I was in treatment.
I hope you’re all doing well. What’s going on in your lives?
