I must start out this blog by saying…I am blessed..I have the most amazing family in the world, and who better to recover with than family. I just returned from a week long trip to Italy with 10 other member of my family. We had the most amazing time, I have never eaten so much delicious food in my life ( granted I have never eaten so much food period in my life) or drank so much Vino..But I must say that was the best week of my life.
I got a little worried because when we arrived in Rome, my bags did not accompany me..and my pain meds were in that bag..We had a full day of touring Vatican City ahead of us too. But it all ended up okay, i wasn’t in too much pain and my bags showed up that night!
Now I am back to work covering Ravens training camp..long days in the sun but it’s actually fun. Today was a great day, I got one on one interviews with QB Joe Flacco..WR Derrick Mason and CB Dominique Foxworth…I am ready for football season to start.
This Thursday I meet with the oncologist to find out what they suggest for treatment. Everyone please keep your fingers crossed that I get good news, the docs have all told me I would most likely have to undergo Chemo, obviously that’s not the road I want to take but if that’s the path God has for me I am ready to push through and get healthy. Everything happens for a reason right??? We are all tested in different ways. You know, lately everything has been so good that I forget I still have a long way to go. I am getting my range of motion back, I have been going to the gym, my strength is back. It’s hard to think that I still have at least one more surgery to go, and possibly some heavy drugs. That it could push me back again…but I guess that’s where we build our strength from, not only physically but mentally as well.
