Vacation Recap

You know the trip to the beach last week went very well.  It was to great see MB’s brother and sister and their respective families.  But I quickly learned that my ability to tolerate long days out walking about and sight-seeing are much more limited than they used to be.

Everyone arrived on Saturday, so Sunday was our first big excursion was to a botanical gardens and betting zoo.  Tuesday (for me) was more resting than anything.  Also, on Tuesday, several members  went beach fishing.  Wednesday, my sister-in-law’s husband went home and we most hung out at the resort pool.  Thursday was exciting; we went shopping (yeah!)  and then I ordered 1/2 bushel of local crabs  (blue crabs to be sure).  I lost tract of how many I ate, but suffice it to say that it was a lot.  The weekend started to slow down; indeed I slept from 11a to 5p Friday afternoon.

I do not like not having the strength to do thinks that, but even today I am feeling rather run down.  So  it was a good visit with family, but my self-realization of my limitations just is further reminder about the progress of my disease.

Getting sick(er) sucks.


  1. Glad to hear you had a nice vacation with your family. I’m not sure if you remember me – I was friends with Jeffe and Felicia at Wash U – one of them gave me the link to your website/blog at some point. I think of you and your situation often, check in on your updates, and keep you and your family in my prayers. I know a lot of people fighting cancer right now! I guess you just have to take it a day at a time, and enjoy every moment you can with your family. It seems you are doing that….

  2. Loved seeing you and had a great time. I was sad the week went by so quick. You forgot to mention the JETSKIS!!! That was a blast. Thanks for introducing me mass crab purchasing/steaming…I’ll be sure to do that again!! Jack and Anne send their love, too.

  3. Hope you’re feeling better some days even though not every day.
