Getting Healthier

Day 232 in my pilgrimage to Mickey

Today’s plan to get to be a healthier me was to take the next steps along the way to my impending surgery.  So I got up this morning, drank some kind of contrast stuff, drove to Highland Park Hospital, and had a CT scan.  They scanned my upper and lower abdomen to make sure everything looks healthy enough for surgery.  I will have surgery on April 15 in Evanston.

When I started this journey 232 days ago, I never dreamed it would lead to where it has.  I just thought I would eat better and move more, and be a healthier me when we went to Florida.  I had no idea I would deal with a bout of cancer on my way to meeting up with Mickey.

It makes me very happy for the 7 months of this new lifestyle.  I AM healthier than I have been in a long time.  I know that sounds ridiculous, after all I have cancer.  But I feel better than I have in years, and I owe it all to better food choices and more movement.  So…so far, so good.

Meet you at the Kingdom!
