Traveling? That is wonderful! Congratulations on the improvement. I am certain it is only the beginning. There is nothing more special than being able to be with family...especially during the holidays. That is sure to keep your mind off of things. Which is exactly the way you need it. Enjoy them! Enjoy the holidays!
As for hobbies...I do a variety of things. My mother taught me to cross stitch when I was about 8 or 9 and it kind of stuck with me. It also started my love of crafting. I make jewelry,bracelets mainly, now mostly to promote cancer awareness. I also enjoy crafting and painting items or just simple sketching. I used to be an avid runner, but sadly I am no longer physically able to do this. Mainly due to poor kidneys, but also due to results from surgeries, colostomy, no bladder and reconstruction. Continuously looking for something to fill that void. I had been active in one sport or another from very early childhood and not being able to do anything is torture. :) My husband thinks I am nuts in that way. But, I tell him it is one thing to be able to do something yet not want to and not be able to do it at all. I think it is his way of trying to ease my agony. As of now, my exercise consists of housework and walking my huskies. :) They get me through a lot!
As always... I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. And, again I am very happy for your upcoming adventure.
