I was surprised to see how long it’s been since I’ve typed out some musings. There is a good reason for the absence…early this year I found out I had renal cell carcinoma. In April, I had a full right nephrectomy which effectively removed the cancerous tumor as well as my kidney. Thank God He gave us two of them, right?
The recovery was long and I was down for over a month. I’m just now beginning to feel like that chunk of this year is behind me…it’s hard for me to talk about the “C” word anyway because it has always terrified me. To know that for an indeterminate amount of time I was actually walking around, doing life with cancer inside me is a concept I still find difficult to believe, let alone accept. More musings to come on this subject, for sure.
