Physical activities

My hand and arm felt pretty good after curling while wearing my compression sleeve and gauntlet. I'm glad I have them now. I'm not exactly sure how I'll wear them when I paddle on the left and the hand gets plunged into the water, though :)

My oncologist did send in a referral for Well-fit as the physiotherapist had suggested, and I called them today. I go in for my first assessment next Thursday. I'm pretty excited about that, because it'll be a way for me to get some good exercise. Apparently I'll be going twice a week for 12 weeks after the initial assessment.

I'm hoping that the exercise will help with my fatigue. Yes, I'm still sleeping 12-14 hours a day. I can be up early two days in a row if I have to be, but then on the third day I have to sleep and sleep and sleep. Sigh. I wish that I wasn't so tired. I'm really, really glad that I'm not going to work yet, as there's no way that I could make it through a whole week, even if I was to only work part-time.
