I did it. I think.
I pulled through my first 8 day business trip since completing radiation treatments. And I managed to remain largely intact. Some things were different.
First, I needed to remind myself myself to stay hydrated and to stop and eat.
Second, the reality of my decreased stamina and appetite was clear. Neither have fully returned. The latter is probably a good thing, but without a solid eight to nine hours of sleep I’m pretty useless. Unless, of course, I remind myself to eat.
And lastly, I couldn’t push as hard as before. I needed to relax.
So was the trip a success? Well, I did it and managed to find moment to relax poolside too. (Yes, fully protected thanks to a big ‘ole umbrella and SPF 70!).
