Friends and family,

I can’t believe it has already been 5 months since I first started undergoing hyperbaric oxygen treatments at the San Francisco Institute for Hyperbaric Medicine (near Mission Bay, SF).  Well, I’m glad to report  that I’m back to normal again…at least for now.  Who knows if the headaches are gone for good…all I can do now is take good care of myself and make the most out of it.

Thinking back, my favorite part of the treatments was definitely watching movies and TV series in the chamber — Planet Earth, Big Bang Theory (Seasons 1 & 2), The Blind Side, Kung Fu Panda, Seven Pounds, Crash and The Pursuit of Happyness.  I can still remember at first when my fatigue and headaches were so problematic, I could barely watch even slow paced movies like Planet Earth!  Oh how fragile we can become…

And if there’s one thing I really missed while being sick, it would have to be being active.  There are so many things I want to get back into…badminton, cooking, hiking, rock climbing, biking, photography etc.  Will I be able to do them all this year?  I sure hope so!!!

Anyway, it’s good to be back!  Thanks for your prayers and support!
