More and more often these days, I find myself thinking through part of a blog post, considering it for a while, and then getting distracted and moving on. It’s a good thing that life is getting in the way of my thoughts about cancer, and that I’m able to do things now that keep me busy enough to be distracted. But it also means that I’m not doing what I resolved to when I started this blog: chronicling the process for myself, and sharing information to help other people whose lives are interrupted by a cancer diagnosis.
I’m working on it, I promise. It’s just that right now, I’m facing the small challenge presented by some sort of virus that has me dragging around, and the larger challenge presented by some of the consequences of treatment that are going to require more management than I expected. I’ve got another scan coming up at the beginning of May. I hope it will bring good news to remind me that the challenges I’m facing now are a reasonable price to pay for getting to live.
So, in the works: a post about managing the many medical decisions that come after cancer treatment ends. There are still lots of them facing most patients, and I, for one, wasn’t prepared for that. More soon.
