I'm feeling very strong for Round 3, stronger than I ever have: This past weekend I was able to walk to fanuil hall with the nieces and WITHOUT a cane or wheel chair. And on Sunday I sailed and passed my Helmsman test at the Yacht Club which allows me to take a guest out on the water in all wind conditions. That was tiring!
For the Helmsman test they make you take out a boat on your own and run a course in high winds. The water must be white capping! I agree with taking the skills tests; however, sailing alone in high wind conditions is difficult by itself, let alone running a course with my an aching back and numb leg. Nevertheless I passed with flying colors, leaping from one side of the boat to the other side of the boat and pulling in the sheets with all my might!
Today began the waiting process for getting admitted to the hospital but when I called in the morning they said I would probably b admitted tomorrow. So I took my mom sailing with my newly acquired sailing rating. It was a beautiful day and the wind was just strong enough to gingerly push us around the Charles River while we talked and soaked in the sun. Much more relaxing than Sunday's sail :)
Though I couldn't start my treatments, this was a great way to relax before getting admitted tomorrow.
