Minor Update

 I just replied to my cousin  who inquired via FB message how i'm doing and I thought I should share my reply with all my friends as well:

"I'm probably about 80% back to normal, only because I still couldn't remain standing too long. My skinny legs get tired easily. I was cautioned not to do upper body exercises yet either. Having said that I haven't started any exercise yet - I plan on doing a lot of walking at the park and at the beach starting next week and eventually and definitely back to running.

I'm back to my photography already in conjunction with my leisurely walks. As far as my other passion goes, this Sunday I will rejoin my NRA buddies at our local shooting range for some fun target shooting. My arms and wrists are already strong enough to hold steady either a Nikon or a Beretta to do a good shoot (Joke)

I've gained 10 lbs. but I noticed all the additional weight went to my tummy, hahaha, so I will now slow down with this uncontrolled eating until I begin my regimented exercise program.

I'm resuming my Bible and Prison Ministries starting next week as well. Last Sunday I went to church for the first time since this leukemia ordeal began two months ago. I cried when we did the Lord's Prayer, it felt really good."
