I have been missing in action once again. This time I have been lost in medical jargon. Long story very short I have not been at my best of late, not feeling myself. After a visit to the GP, a few tests, scan and finally we heard the dreaded words..."you have cancer". Another scan revealed I have lung cancer which has spread to the liver, lymph nodes and pelvis. What is crazy is there is a second cancer of the kidney, which it quite unusual I am led to believe. There is no cure, I have been given just months to live. I have already had a biopsy of the liver and go over to the mainland next week for a biopsy of the lung to determine some form of treatment plan. It is palliative care.
I am living each day as it comes, trying to enjoy each moment. Savouring each magical minute and spectacular view that I see. Enjoying the beauty that surrounds us and the everchanging landscapes. I am trying to remain as positive as I can and most of the time have an inner sense of peace. I have my moments and struggles but for now I am strong.
This blog has been a lifeline at times and I thank you for your company, friendship and love along the way. I don't want it to end as a medical diary so will not be recording my journey. However I am not ready to give up on it just yet. I will pop in now and again and carry on recording my makes and little adventures.
See you soon.
