Yes, I know. I know you need to hear from me. I was sitting at “my” Rotary table on Wednesday of this week and talking to fellow cancer survivor Larry Sanders. He asked me how I was doing and I told him that I feel great and that if anything bad was going on, I was blissfully ignorant of it. We agreed that sometimes that is a good thing, although please understand that I am on guard like an angry badger when it comes to my condition. But, damn, it is good just to be alive and going about the business of living!
Now I know why some of the most creative people have led tortured lives. When I’m the most afraid, when I’m wigged out of my mind is when I write. I know you know what I’m talking about because the feedback I get tells the story. So, just know this: If I’m writing hard and heavy there’s a better than average likelihood that I’m freaked out about something. So, don’t wish that on me, people! I promise to do a better job of posting here. I have been spending some time over the past couple of weeks working on some facebook stuff and soon you’ll see the fruits of my labor.
In the meantime, I’m going to see Dr. Pippas this coming Monday, the 24th. I’m hoping we’ll talk about more frequent scans for a while and setting up a Zometa infusion to protect my bones from further invasion by Mr. C. Unless I hear something to the contrary, I am feeling good and hopeful about this year.
Please make plans to support the American Cancer Society Crystal Ball on March 19, 2011 at the RiverMill Event Center, where I will be this year’s honoree.
