Dear Logbook, hundredth twelfth day of a new life.
My Diary, 9 days have passed since I wrote you. More and more days will pass. Until the day that I don’t do it anymore. Don’t get mad at me, it will be a sign that I live this new “normal” without thinking about cancer. I am going to tell you that my two weeks in the clinic have served me as a good ending to a stage. In my case I feel like it’s a period. I feel better.
This week has been quite good. Teleworking is not something that I love a lot, I prefer working in the office more, but these days it is what it touches. Also from my ship the KS (Hospital) the crew there continues to recommend that I telework as much as possible and the same with the subway and the bus, to avoid them. This week I will not be able to say the one of the previous one in which I could run 37 km. My greatest distance accumulated in a week since I ran the Stockholm marathon in June 2018. In this, I went out to run on Tuesday with 8, 5 km very comfortable and on Thursday at the end I could not go out and I tried it on Friday, but the having stopped doing the stretches and exercises of my Achilles meant that I only came out 600 m because they bothered me again. Anyway, yesterday Saturday we took a walk to the downtown by bike. When I got to the center everything was very empty. How do you notice the lack of exterior and interior tourism! And by asking the clerk at an ice cream stand. The place where we had our first ice cream in Stockholm on August 8, 2017. This one told us that everything is very stopped. The city is not under forced confinement, but it shows that many people have decided to keep their own safety distances. This does not mean that the number of infected or, still, of deceased is high. This Bug, the Covid-19, has caught everyone with the changed pace. It is true that here the strategy, good or bad, is different from the rest in that it does not oblige, but rather appeals to the responsibility of the individual. In short, time will tell that such was the strategy.
Today my Diary, the day at least has been more moved. I got up and went to run, almost without discomfort. And then we went to Tyresta Park. There we walked about 7.2 km of walk with rocks, roots, etc. But it is a park that we really like. You breathe nature and calm. In the two hours of walking, we have come across 40 people, 2 babies and 10 dogs. And about 20 other people were eating or having barbecues. That is to say, haven of peace and calm, almost certainly free of the Bug.
On the other hand, in the last days I have started to give a new life to the printer. I received an email, asking if we could help by printing straps so that when you have to wear the mask for many hours, the rubber bands on it are not pulling on your ears. Well I started and I can have now about 150 units. These little things help me a lot. It is like being able to give them something of me, it is like it seems the least after all that they have helped me. It’s like I feel obligated or in debt to pay back all that help in some way. I know I have said it many times in my posts. I love Ayudame3d.org’s motto
“Helping is too easy not to do it”
And my Diary, for today I won’t tell you anything else. Thank you very much for always being there.
