My apoloies for being away as long as I have. I fear I will be out a while longer. The reality of cancer and its impact on my immediate circle of family, friends, and me is getting a little too ponderous. I will be out tryng to make sense of it all.
My 27 year old step Grand-daughter decided Tuesday she is no longer fighting in treating her stage IV Hodgkins Lymphoma. She will leave two children; my 64 year old fellow Viet Nam veteran shipmate announced today he is giving up on treating his Stage IV colo-rectal cancer with mets to the lungs; they will both be gone in less than 6 months.
To end the perfect week, my own Primary Care Doctor called me today telling me I need a new set of chest x-rays following my check up last week. It seems there is a shadow on my right lung they want to examine a little closer.
Have I mentioned that I hate cancer!
I need a break!
Best to all! I'll be checking in!
I wish you all the best!
