I have a bad case of spring fever. It's still quite cold at night but by mid day has been warming up. The down side is although early spring flowers are beginning to bloom, they are getting freezer burned at night by the cold.
I shot the flower above which is one of the blooms on my neighbors camelia bushes and by the next day it had black spots from the hard freeze at night. If it wasn't for the damage to the early flowers, this is my favorite type of weather. I love to wake up to a bracing cold morning and then have the sun start working it's warming magic during the day.
I'm taking advantage of spring fever to finally start on the fall clean up in my garden. Better late than never. I have to be careful not to overdo it as gardening can create more physical issues if I do too much of the heavier, strenuous type of work.
I have my six month check up with my pain specialist next Tuesday and on Thursday of next week, I have my annual full body PET/CT scan. I also have an oncology checkup right after the scan. I guess if I hurt myself with spring fever, I'll have the advantage of getting help from the pain doc in short order. I'm being facetious. It's not really like there is any magic bullet to deal with any of it.
One thing I have learned to do is wait until after I'm doing something strenuous to take my pain medications. I don't want to mask issues and do too much because I just took a pain pill. If I wait until after gardening to take my pain meds, I do less and am less likely to hurt myself.I will be glad to have next week over with. I'm trying not to get too antsy. I don't expect any problems. I expect that I will officially be four years out from my stage III melanoma diagnosis without recurrence when I get my scan results. Perhaps my feeling antsy is just spring fever and it's coincidental that I'm coming up on the doc stuff.
