I had been feeling more energetic each day, but had been getting really tired by Friday, and spent the weekend resting up. This past friday, I was feeling pretty good, after a busy (but holiday shortened) week.

And this weekend, we actually did things: Company picnic all day Sat, and took my 10 yo to a baseball game yesterday (I had energy yesterday...the Nationals, not so much). These were the first two trips more than 10 miles from home. No problem with energy.

There is still a little pain when I cough or sneeze, but I can live with that.

Figured I would post some good news. Would have been better news if the Nats won yesterday....

Glad to hear it. Your note reflects your great attitude. There was a song a few years back, "Ain't nothin gonna break my stride...."

Each of us recovers at their own pace. Some are a little ahead of you and some a little behind you. The good news is that recovery only gets better and you can do more each day. One of our younger members even went on a roller coaster after 3 and 1/2 months. You can wait till next summer for that.

I looked longingly as my daughter and a friend rode the rollercosters. But, I *knew* I was not up for it. We are planning a trip to Univerisal Orlando in Jan. I hope to be ok then (will be 7 months).

dhs1963,

I will give the rollercoster a 50/50 chance for you in January.
