      What does 'should' mean?

      If one can, one may. If one is unable, one practices.

      I have simply learned that my body is not what it once was, and I can't do as much physically as I used to be able to. Part just due to age, and part due to being beaten down by treatments. But I still do as much as I can, and sometimes, that's too much. I wind up paying for it for a few days with a sore body.

      Some of the examples here are simply mind-boggling.
      Common sense (from both patient & doctor) would hopefully come into play that when major surgery occurs, the body needs to heal for a reasonable amount of time.

      My faith is certainly stronger. I used to believe a busy life was a successful life. When I got sick I was going mach I with my hair on fire most days. I was not living, I was just busy. I like to say God gave me a time out. It took me months to accept it. Treatment, and all that implies, brought my previous life to a halt. I was sick. Too sick to function. But my mind never stopped. I slowly came around. Today, I make sure I do something I enjoy each day. Nothing big . . . Might just be sharing a smile with a stranger, but I am present. I no longer speed through life. I live a life of gratitude. Sounds crazy, but had I not gotten sick, I would have never stopped to smell the roses. I believe God thumped me in the head and forced me to slow down. I wish I had been smart enough to do it without getting sick, but I was not.
      Let me wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy holidays. May 2017 be a most excellent new year!

      Cancer was a lesson to help me appreciate life when I had issues in my live that now are left behind. I believe it was a wake up call from God. Very thankful for each day. Merry Christmas and God bless you all.
