It has been nine months since my Cancer diagnosis. I tweeted out the other day…In the time it takes to create a human life I have fought for my own. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
In other news – I think I know why my energy is LOW. I stopped taking my multi vitamin about a month ago. I read an article about iron and Myeloma and how they interact. Consequently, ever since I stopped taking the vitamin my RBC (red blood cell) count has gone down pretty steadily. I reincorporated Centrum back into the plan yesterday and had more energy.
After a two hour drive home from a Bar Mitzvah upstate I put together two shoe shelves and a bench for the mud room. Then I went on Sirius XM Fantasy Sports radio with @heykayadams to draft a team for her diehards league. I never got on the air but I got a nice mention from Kay about my treatment, what I am going through and the money we are raising for a cure and awareness. If you have a chance to listen to Livin’ The Fantasy on Sirius XM Fantasy Sports Channel you can hear her mention me. After that, I dropped by one of my hometown fantasy football drafts to check up on my partner and our team.
NOW – I have drafted 4 of my 5 leagues. The last one (and most important – longest running) is on Tuesday night. After that, you can expect my first fantasy football analysis on the blog. I don’t want to give away any secrets before that draft.
I woke up this morning and feel great. Going to take my herbs, get in a light workout, drink some #bradstrong juice and organize my work life for the final quarter of the year.
9 months in … many more to go. Life is regular right now. I would like to keep it like that. A great Labor Day weekend spent with family, friends, fantasy football buddies. Even with Cancer I wouldn’t trade places with anyone in the world.
Keep feeling it. Keep feeling #bradstrong
