For the second time in two years, I had to have surgery to remove something cancerous in my body. Last year, they found a cancerous polyp in my colon that had to be removed and my colon resected. This year, they found another polyp in my uterus so last week, I had a total hysterectomy. Almost exactly one year apart.
I think my uterus felt left out?! Anyway, didn’t have to have any chemo/radiation for either one. But now I have Governor Hogan’s oncologist for the next six years. Good thing I like him!
This stuff makes you think.
As I heal, I start to think. (Which is always scary for me and those who know me!).
It’s funny, I used to being on my own. But people make me smile. I talk to everyone I meet, even just in passing. But I don’t let many people in, even family. I don’t have much family left. But I have my “adopted” and “chosen” family. They are spread across the planet. And I love each and every one of them. I hope they know that. I have missed saying “goodbye” in person to many people I have loved. Since my Dad died, I have tried to show/tell people how I feel about them. He died when I was 21 (and now I’m almost 66). I wasn’t there for his death or my Ma’s. I don’t regret it now but I did at the times. I hold them in my head and heart. I hope they are proud of me.
Sometimes I feel like I’m skimming across the top of my life but not alway in it. I working it out, making it up as I go along, just surviving.
