I have found an exercise bike! Jim Swartz a local Physical Therapist from Auburn, NY plans to deliver an exercise bike he owns, which has the same design as the Schwinn Aerodyne, to me tomorrow. I am very excited about this and incredibly grateful. Thank you Jim.

Also, I met with my Oncologist last week and my blood work came back with no problems. I will have another PET Scan and more blood work in November. My visits at the Coumadin clinic have gone well and I go in to the Coumadin Clinic tomorrow for another checkup.

Things are looking up for me (as long as we're not talking about the world of professional sports!).


  1. Bert - you have a plan and now the first tool you need to implement that plan. I think things are definitely looking up!

    I agree with the plan, by the way. That's how I have been recovering. You need endurance to work on strength, so it has to come first. Although, I have found that strength also increases my endurance, but I definitely needed to get some endurance back first.

    Glad to hear things are moving forward in your recovery process.


  2. Personally I know that a Cancer diagnosis demands so much from us; emotionally, physically and mentally. My heart felt sympathy goes out to anyone who is battling Cancer of any type.

    In 2006, my Mother was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 79. My Mother lost her battle 8 months later.
    I created the MedTrakker... founded and inspired out of deep sorrow and personal experience.

    MedTrakker is a Cancer Medical Organizer created to assist patients in tracking and organizing every aspect of there treatment care journey.
    The MedTrakker was created to save patients and care givers the anxiety of "Starting from Scratch".

    The Organizer allows the patient to record Important Contacts, Health and Treatment History, All of your appointments with a 1 year Calendar, Chart your daily or weekly Blood Counts. Side Effect Management, Insurance Discussions and more.
    The Organizer also provides Nutritional Support, Physical Support and Motivational Support. Each section of the MedTrakker is designed to fit the needs of every Cancer patient and their Care Givers. Patients will interact with many health care providers aiding them in there treatment care. MedTrakker is a valuable resource tool in an easy-to-use format. Please visit us online
    We donate 10% of our proceeds to LACO; a non-profit organization that helps families touched by cancer.

    Blessing to all who are battling any type of Cancer!

  3. I am a Gerson patient and totally out of shape due to Charlotte's advice about getting enough rest and not pushing it. Good luck with building yourself up!
    I just created a new Gerson Blog, for lyme
