My eyes look the same, they just see differently.
“How long do I have to live?” to “How soon can I return to my normal daily life?” in less than four months has been an emotional and mental roller coaster ride that left the tracks long ago.
Back when I was first coping with ‘how long do I have to live?’ (but concealing lung cancer from everyone) I wrote an entry exercise, fitness, caregiving for Multiple Sclerosis in which I guestimated I had pushed Patti’s wheelchairs at least 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) over the decades.
So with my successful surgery and recovery in the past tense and one test push under the belt it was time to add some mileage.
Under 68˚F (20°C) sunny skies we looped City Island in the Susquehanna River on Sunday for a mile plus (1.6+ km) outing. Originally planning on just using the level paved walking/biking path I soon was all terrain from my personal favorite concrete beach through water golf, scenic overlooks, picnic pavilions and docks.
Can anyone really push themself until they have pushed another?
