Just though some of you could use a little diversion. This week I enter the 5th week of the double murder trial in County Court. A reminder for lurkers, I am a 6 year survivor of stage 3 rectal cancer...did the whole chemoradiation, surgery, chemotherapy regimen.
Well, I am holding up alright. The case has gone in well so far, but with juries you can never count on anything and always have to expect the worst, but hope for the best...kind of like us cancer patients! My energy and health have been good despite 75 hour weeks. I did lose some weight during the trial, got down to 161 lbs...but my wife fattened me up this long weekend and I am at 172 again now.
given the fight that I endured just to be here, one would think that this pressure would be minimal. However, there is no escaping the courtroom pressure for a prosecutor in a double murder case. I do, however, remind myself each day that I have survived worse, and can get through each day, just like I did each one of my days of treatment, illness, and surgery. Hope that anyone here in the midst of treatment gets to return to their life...and may it be a little easier that murder trials!!! All my best to all of you fighting the good fight. We win each day by living our lives.
