I just love the Energizer Bunny. The whole concept of going non-stop about your activities and being able to keep going and going and going. I used to be able to go non-stop. Oh boy do I miss those days! After my stem cell transplant (SCT), I was amazed when reading about a one year recovery for immunizations. That it would be 12 months before most people could return to full time work. One report said three to five years for a full recovery! Really? It would take my body that long to recover from a reboot of my marrow?
About a week ago I came down with a digestive tract bug...some nausea, but mostly lots of trips to the porcelain oval. It is over now, but by mid afternoon every day I am exhausted. Exhausted to the point of feeling ill and wanting just to horizontally crash. How can I be so tired? I am learning that a SCT wipes out your reserves. Reserves to fight off infection. Reserves of muscle strength. Reserves of energy. The doctors say that my body is working very hard to rebuild the blood structure. It will take months to complete and until done, my reserves will continue waiting to be charged back up. I will just have to be patient, continue to search Ebay for a replacement X-Large SACRUM and dream of the day when the Energizer Bunny returns.
