Well-fit assessment

I had my Well-fit assessment today. The person I met with is probably about my age but is fantastic shape. It was a little intimidating to sit beside her - she with her buff body and me with my flabby, chubby body. However, I took comfort in the fact that most of the people they see are as chubby (if not more so) than me.

The assessment wasn't very hard; apparently my oncologist said that I was to have only moderate activity because of the mets to the sternum. Ummmm, I hope dragonboat paddling is considered moderate activity :) I thought I'd told the oncologist that I paddle - hopefully she'll have no objection to that. I will be going Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-4pm, starting on December 4.

I was there while a class was finishing, and this guy came over and started talking to the person working with me. He kept staring at her, and then he finally came over and started saying things like "you must have been a beauty queen" to her. Ewwwwwwww. I guess having cancer doesn't mean that a person won't be smarmy. I'm glad that I'm not in the same class as him.

So you're saying that line actually works sometimes? :)
