Thank you, nighttrain. You seem to understand my heart. I wish I could begin to describe the wave of emotions that came over me yesterday. I can't, so I won't attempt. I need to reteach myself how to play. It'll be a long road, but at least I know what I'm doing.

Just my second day of "training," and already I'm doing retro enteries.

Saturday, 8/7/10

Cals:2,471
Carbs:348
Fat:68
Protein:120

Training:

Not much today, I did about 10 minutes of dynamic stretching for my legs, followed by about 5 minutes of static stretching. Tried to do some shoulder rotations, but my right shoulder is still so jimmied up. I think I'll need some PT sessions. I toyed with the notion of hitting the "Y" for some treadmill time, but I didn't want to push my luck.

Trumpet:

15 minutes. Nice and easy. Stretched my range to just over an octave. Not going to push anything. Basically I survived one entire warmup exercise. Back in college, a good warmup session for the day lasted about 45 minutes. I'll go for a bit more on Sunday.

How are you feeling physically? Are you starting to regain some of your energy?

I've been pretty good for the first few hours of the day. I can tell that I still could use a mid-afternoon nap (which I've been skipping just because it's not normal), by 9:30 p.m. though I'm pretty baked. I'm still having pain management issues, and am trying to conserve my roxicet. The good news though is I can take ibuprofen again. I've found that it does a much better job on the pain than does tylenol.

I think I was too ambitious by getting the doctor to release me to work next Tuesday. My short term disability covers me until August 31. I might see if I can't get the doctor to write me a new note. That will give me time to deal with pain management, begin eating real food, and work on shoulder and neck mobility.

I go back to Mayo tomorrow to meet with the XRT team. If they recommend immediate radiation therapy, I'm sure I'll be good for an extended leave.

More trumpet playing is in store for today, and maybe a trip to the "Y."

I would. I'd take all the time you can get as long as it's not cramping your wallet.

It wouldn't be cramping my wallet if I hadn't missed four band gigs.
