So, sometimes I forget I have cancer. I wake up, watch my cartoons, then GMA, eat and head to the gym - where my trainer kicks my butt and then I start my work day. Well, the radiation part of my treatments alerted me on Friday that it was time to slow down and rest. My body was tired and there was nothing I could do to get "fired" up and create some energy. I continued to work in the office, but my body was telling me, "hey dummy, go turn on the Flintstones and lay down." Well, I finally did so. And then, my angels came to work for me.
I received a delicious Editable Arrangements fruit basket inside of a basketball bowl from Ashley, Lindsey, Erin, Z, Molly, Hazel, Serena, Benna, Courtney, Allison, Saf, Lynn, Laura, Val and Blair with a card saying, " Coach Kim, good luck on your journey to kicking cancers butt! We will be here every step of the way to support you! Anyone can defeat this, it's you! We can't wait to kick your butt on November 12!"
You see, these are my former Emory players who still have love for Coach Kim, although I'm at Oglethorpe. But, they are so crazy if they think they will kick our butts on the court. Love them but November 12th is going to be a beat down for them.
Then, I receive a package from the Reilly family with a gift card for Elisa and I and a wonderful "You Got This" book and card. By the time evening rolled around, I had energy and was able to get some more work in.
Saturday, I was able to see my Oglethorpe Girls at our Elite Camp, and went into full force coaching mode, although Alex (Head Coach) had me simply evaluating, I couldn't help myself, so I started coaching the young players in attendance, jumping around, teaching, shooting air balls and more. Then, my body said,"What the heck are you doing?" And made me start coaching from a chair :(
All in all, it was a good day but my body was so tired, thus I left camp a little early went home and simply rested all night. However, we did receive a beautiful card and "Warrior" bag with lots of kicking cancer butt stuff from our niece, Arielle and her fiance (John).
Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
