“I am Walking!”
I am thrilled to reports improvements in the leg bone pain, so I am now more mobile, standing and walking for longer periods of time. Our trip to San Diego’s Safari Park was very fun and as I was not in a wheelchair on this trip, it was much easier to manage. (I am truly grateful for the wheelchair and the extent of handicapped accessibility in this country, but...standing on one’s own working legs is indeed priceless!) The SD Safari Park is a splendid organization focused on wildlife conservation. What I especially loved was that the animals roam free while people are confined to jeeps/trucks -- just like I think it should be!
With the improvement in my stamina and clarity, I find that I am keeping a bit more regular schedule at work (Ambassador Translating) as I am supported by a splendid determined team. On the personal front, I am nearing completion of the Yoga Teacher Training Program and towards that end, I have traveled to California twice this past month (San Mateo and La Jolla) for yoga workshops with wonderful kind, compassionate fellow-yogis/yoginis. Alex-Oleh met me at each locale, as we piggy-backed personal R&R time together, onto my workshop trips. He travels so much for work (weekly business trips domestically and internationally) that I am sometimes baffled that he is willing to travel during our personal time, but I am grateful for an outstanding companion (as the youngsters say MFEO meaning: made for each other).
I am still happily volunteering meditation-yoga classes in our community. It is often said when volunteering time to others, one gets so much in return and this is very true for me. This group brings me joy.
My diet has been mostly liquids for the past 10 weeks, as I am not properly digesting solid foods. I am grateful for the powdered medicinal supplements which I reconstitute, but am very eager to eat solid foods soon.
My current medical protocol is aimed at reducing the Babesia* load in my system. Babesia is known to be especially challenging to eradicate hence we are particularly focused and determined to keep at it, with rough spots likely in the next 2 months and an overall protocol of 6+ months.
Sending deep gratitude to my beloved life partner, warm family and friends, health care practitioners, work colleagues, and students for the generous support and understanding...And appreciation to the multitude of meds and supplements that slowly work their magic giving me back function. Each evening as I lay my head on my pillow, I give thanks for the bounty in my life.
Wishing you a splendid journey filled with bliss!
