Yesterday, for the first time in two weeks, I actually felt hungry. I also slept through the night last night. I think knowing what the next step is at least puts some order to all of this chaos.
The other day Mike came across a website http://www.colonclub.com/ - it's a site geared towards people diagnosed at a younger age than is typical. There is a message board/forum as well. I have to say, I love it! Mike probably won't register with the site (he's just fine getting his support from people he already has a relationship with), but in less than 24 hours I had 14 responses to my post as a newbie. Have I said before how amazing it is to have so much support? My theory is that I can never get enough information to really be satisfied. And, if I can get first hand info from people currently going through diagnosis & treatment as well as from their support people - all the better.
My sister-in-law, Colleen, is organizing a group for the "Get Your Rear in Gear" 5K in Tinley Park, IL. The run is July 25 - so they're moving quickly. We won't be able to go this time, but I'm planning next fall in 2011 when Milwaukee holds the event.
Today is a good day.
