After a long day at work yesterday and then working at church I decided I would stop by my mom's house to drop off shirts for our family reunion this weekend. My brother was there with his daughter and they were just about to head into the pool. So I stayed and joined them. I was planning on going to the gym to run but this was so much more fun. Tonight was the first night this year that my brother has been able to go into the pool. He finally has the tubes removed from his arm and may be able to start work again next week. It has been a very long 7 months battling leukemia but thank God that he pulled through it. It was nice to see him in the pool instead of on the computer by the pool. He really enjoyed playing with his daughter (who turns 3 on Sat). It was a ton of fun and exercise also.

    That's great that you were able to spend time with your brother for that significant moment in his life. Playing in the pool is great fun and an awesome workout - made even better by the people you are with. Glad you had a great time!

    The fact that this is his first time in the pool makes this all the more special. I am so glad you had the opportunity to hang out and splash around. I believe we get a much better workout in a pool than we realize! Good for you! And God bless your brother! :)
