Day by Dayon April 18th, 2012
As we live our day to day lives with its ups and downs, we sometimes want to scream “it’s not fair”. As most of you know I have been blessed to have met my colonel a year ago and we have married. Life is generally good on the mountaintop. We had the battle with colon cancer and surgery was done to remove and resection part of his colon..he is 6 weeks into recovery and cancer free as far as we know…..I thank God every day as my dh died of lung cancer from Agent orange in VietNam. The colonel is a VietNam Veteran also but remains free from the health issues many veterans live with everyday…So life is good for us again, still…and being terrified of the cancer thing is going away. Along with good comes the bad in all our lives..there are thorns in our bouquet of roses. We had a Champagne dinner last night and just sat and talked. these are the moments I love. I finally got up the nerve to call my little brother who has throat cancer. He is going through chemo and radiation..I have a picture of him and he has no hair…..he will have a feeding tube and will not be able to talk during part of his treatment….I HATE CANCER……….his prognosis is good they say. and I cried for him and his family. We have just had so much going on and I have been overwhelmed by it all at times. And I come here to the Widdahood and read what you all are going through and I want to hug you all in person and say hey….we can do it….
