Cancer

If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

A big day! My chemo-port was removed today Sept 10, 2014. It was a piece of cake, only took about an hour with all the chatter and well wishes. Dr. Parviz, my surgeon and her assistant, Pat, did the job in quick order. We had a young pre-med student who was "shadowing" Dr. Parviz for the week; it gives me great pleasure to see young people coming up the ladder into medical care.

Laura and Larry went with me just for the fun of it, I didn't need a driver, or anything like that. However, they have been so sweetly attentive to each step of my care and this was a day of celebration.

Now, a few days of not leaning over or lifting heavy things, and I will putter off into autumn in good shape. 

Chemo-port removed today Sept 10, 2014
