I've had a pretty good week. I've swum everyday. The 100s on Wednesday were very difficult but I made it through. I had a good report from my oncologist on Thursday (after a two hour waiting room stay)-- Tumor markers normalized, tumors getting smaller. I'll keep my schedule of treatment every three months and see him again in three months. Now, I'm off to San Diego for a wedding. My kids are staying behind so it is just me and my husband! I haven't decided if I'll try to swim yet.

I lived there from 1992-94 and swam at Shiley (located at Scripps Green Hospital) on my lunch hour as it was two blocks from the lab I worked in and I still had the mental fortitude to swim for 90 minutes on my own. They used the pool for rehab as well as for swimming. Patrick Ewing rehabbed there after an ankle(?) surgery and he once asked our master's coach if we were doing rehab as well (He had just started rehab and our coach, Terri was the PT working with him and Terri thought he was thinking that all out swimming was the end point of her rehab program).

    You probably already know this, but there are some awesome pools in San Diego. My two favorite are the masters program at UCSD and the Coronado public pool.
