I can eat all I want of this stuff:
Mostly, I eat carrots and tomatoes. Asparagus at dinner.
I’m 15 pounds down.
That’s almost like not carrying 7 liters of water!
My pack fully loaded is around 31 lbs. I am planning to lose 30. Essentially, what I am saying is,
I will be carrying a 1 pound pack.
This will solve a couple of problems. My clothes will fit better. My back will be happier. My plantar fasciitis will be GONE.
Marsha at Apex Physical Therapy is fixing me. I am walking normally for the first time since 2016.
Yes. This is the new me. The me that will finish the Appalachian Trail. I’m thinking positively.
On a negative note. Another squamous cell cancer removed. I took off the bandage this morning and freaked out! That is a big incision!
Then, just after I came out of the surgeon’s office, the nurse told me that both the biopsies sent out came back positive. Two more surgeries. One right next to my eye:
See that little dot? How are they going to work there???
Then one on my nose on the other side. Zotz!
Zotz! Now there’s a blast from the past! 1962 Film with Tom Poston and Jim Backus.
My mind, as usual is all over the place.
I’m camping and hiking a little with a full pack this Saturday. First time in months. I will be trying out my new foot.
Saturday came and went. I had a BALL! Can you tell?
My Achilles bothered me after about an hour and a half on the light trail.
Back to PT today.
One day at a time.
15 pounds down.
