Sweet! This morning I got the word and joined the club, the NED club! Call me survivor. Call me bad-ass. I kicked this cancer thing's butt big time!
Just over 9 weeks post-treatment and I am pain-free and eating totally normally again. My voice is 50%, but I never could sing to begin with, so that's no big deal. Slight issues with dry mouth, but sipping water throughout the day fixes that and keeps me hydrated. Energy levels are at about 80% and my stamina is shot to hell. Tried a 1-hr mountain bike ride the other day and it kicked me so much harder than just not training over the last 6 months. Something else at work here. I'm going to have to start at base 1 again. Oh well.
New goal: Another Ironman triathlon in 2013! This time wearing the yellow for real. I AM A SURVIVOR!!!
Common gang! Let's ALL call ourselves Ned!!!
