I spent the weekend in Buffalo, NY for tai chi and Chinese New Year dinner this past weekend. It was my first overnight trip away from home since my diagnosis. Now that I feel so much better, I wanted to stretch my wings a bit to see how my body does. I was tired, but made it through much better than I thought I would especially during the 3-hour tai chi class. It was the most tai chi I have done in months. Although I was exhausted by the end of the class, my back has loosened up where the radiation scars were in my lower back. Even my hot flashes went away for the last couple of nights! It did me wonders to see friends again and do tai chi with a big group. Everyone was super nice to me and took care of me every step along the way. I am so grateful for everything and everyone!
