Marcel Dionne/Walk for MS Event Tomorrow!

I’ll start off with my day yesterday – it was not good.  I hardly slept the night before and woke up very weak and fatigued.  Still, I went into work and had a fairly productive day.  However, around 1:00, I started to go downhill fast.  My friend was leaving at 3:00 and offered me a ride home.  I was so appreciative and took her up on her offer.  I was able to rest for a few hours before heading to my Recreational Aircraft Association meeting at 7:00.  Fortunately, I was able to hide how I felt and, as usual, had a great time at the meeting.  Our guest speaker was amazing.  Her name is Hayley Shephard and she has been around the globe on many excursions, typically via kayak.  Check out her website here!  Her presentation was great and everyone in the room really enjoyed the evening.

After my somewhat long day yesterday, I took a full sleeping pill when I got home.  I was dead asleep when my alarm went off.  I did not feel rested at all.  Still, I got ready, dressed, and headed out the door.  Before stepping into the hall, I decided to go back to bed.  I laid in the bed, fully clothed and with my office security tags on, and dozed for a few minutes.  Then I called my supervisor and said I wouldn’t be there this morning, changed my voicemail message, then fell asleep.  I slept until after 11:00!!  Man, I REALLY needed that extra sleep.  I feel so much better now. 

Tomorrow is a really big day for us.  Hockey Legend Marcel Dionne and I are teaming up to raise money for the Walk for MS.

We had a great turnout last year and we’re certainly hoping for the same this year.  I am so grateful to Marcel and his family for doing this for us again!  There will be a draw for three separate flights with me around Niagara, for those who pledge me.  Come on down tomorrow!  Not only will you get to meet Marcel and McFly, but you’ll also get to meet my little mother, Jan!

Today’s symptoms:  Much of the day was spent unconscious, which I think started me on my path towards feeling great from the surgery.  No pain or aches so far today.  I’m also not feeling any MS fatigue since my looooong sleep.
