the breath

Quiet mind this morning. Respirations 2 per minute. I find the counting useful in keeping focused on the breath but fear I’m becoming attached to low respirations. Karen says I’ll stop breathing completely soon at this rate.

Bilge pump

Battery and bilge pump. About 6 pounds. Not much compared to 50 gallons of ocean water. I’ll need to add a waterproof switch and drainage tubing. This battery can also charge the phone. It used to hold a charge for a long time.

Kayak test

Karen and I tested out the kayak. It looks like the bent mast actually helped it sail a little better. It was a little chilly at first, once out of the Marina the water was pretty good. To have any chance at making it 130 miles will require a bilge pump. I still have a lead acid battery I used to charge my cell phone on the Aids ride that could power a pump.

Enjoy Life

So far everything looks good. My cancer was a Fuhrman grade 3. Pretty aggressive, so it’s not that surprising it metastasized. The surprise is that it took so long. The last couple of years were stressful and I slacked off on the exercise and diet during that time. I went from 150 lbs to 188 lbs during that time. Also from exercising 2 hours a day and regular 50-100 mile bike rides to barely 45 minutes a week of exercise. I can’t help but wonder how much of a role that played. The timing sure seems more than a coincidence.

I asked Dr. Chow what I could do. His response was “Enjoy life”. I like that. Excellent answer and great advise to anyone. I’m down to 152 lbs now and exercising regularly and Zazen daily. Whatever time is left, I’m enjoying fully.

Enjoy life!

Oncology appoinment today

I see the oncologist today. Not quite sure what to talk about. Hopefully there isn’t much to discuss. I suppose we’ll go over the results of the latest CT scan.
