I continue forward, rather rising to the call of making today the best I can make it. I am still somewhat haunted by the memories of cancer, but grateful they are just memories now. I feel the loss to the tips of my toes, and have shed so many tears, and cried to the heavens so many times over the lives gone, the families torn apart, the pain of this horrible disease. I come here and am reminded of the cycle, the beginnings, the middle, the end.
In the meantime- this summer I will more than likely go through 2 surgeries, one to fix my right thumb- arthritis has eaten away at the joint. And more than likely will have a spinal fusion, fusing together L1-L5.
Looking forward to the days of spring. We still have quite a bit of snow on the ground, expecting more this coming week. The end of the school year and the lazy days of summer ahead.
Love to all
Patty in Minnesota
