Luv - Why not ask your onc or your PCP?  I've worried about the heart damage from Adriamycin - my MUGA is still within normal range, but it went from high normal function before the Red Devil to just barely in the normal range after 6 treatments.  I've discussed this with my onc, and she has indicated a willingness to send me for a cardio consult if I experience any sort of issues, especially now that I'm ramping up my running.  I do experience shortness of breath going up hills or other times when I have to increase my effort, but at this point I'm attributing it to still getting into running shape.  But if it doesn't improve by the time I see my onc again in July, I will definitely ask for that cardio consult just to ease my mind.

I'm happy for you Cocobean, Joy my son would have loved Pi Day and Blasie, liked your husband's Pi Day tracking remark.  Mary Badger et all, Duncan Bannatyne is a rich creep and if my instructors and people at my gym were not so excellent and friendly, I would not pay a pound to him.  No doubt, the man is despicable.  Pat, any more thought's of your dress that hints to the bridesmaids? Luvlulu, I'm to start running when this snow and rain shift and looking to run Race For Life, along the top of the Clifts next to Dover in mid June.

Pilates and physio today.  Feeling good and forward movement.

Got out for a nice noontime walk in the swirling snow on the Square.  So pretty and (hopefully) so fleeting.  But we're being hit by the edge of that polar vortex, so more snow on the way.

9,625 steps = 7.7 km = 4.79 mi for today.

patoo, missing you, can you hear my Voice?

Cocobean, congratulations!  Ruth, thanks for the science lesson.  That polar vortex sounds pretty exciting to visualize.  And boo for the non-hunky college student.  Joy, I can hardly believe anyone could memorize 200 digits of pi.  Wow!  I wonder how many years that kid will retain all that.

Another indoor hooping session followed by a cool-down walk.  My urge to have more space when hooping is fighting with my fear of attracting attention in public.  I don't have a good space in my yard.  I would like to find some nice expanse of grass with shade some day.

This is what Dr. Nancy Snyderman said on the news tonight about that radiation study:

"Women undergoing breast cancer treatment today need to know that the technology has evolved significantly since the study started back in 1958. It's not just the doses of radiation that are different now, but more important, how precise they are. Radiation oncologists now have pinpoint accurate techniques that minimize or almost completely avoid the heart, reducing the chance for damage while still irradiating the breast tumor. We have come a long way in breast cancer radiation treatments and women should be reassured. Today's take home is that cancer patients have to take care of the rest of their health as well and pay attention their health during treatment." 

It was sunny and mild, so I got in a very nice walk after work (storm warning out for tomorrow again, so it's a short reprieve), and did 30 minutes abs/lower body with Denise Austin.
