[cancer] Slogging forward

On my (delayed) way home now, to the peaceful quiet of my home, therein to dwell with only the echo of my thoughts. I’ve been very deliberately postponing much of this stress, reveling in the distractions, and charging forward toward the cliff that is surgery, biopsy and chemo. The debts of that postponement are being called in.

I know I am strong, but this will be tough.

    So good to see you this weekend. I knew you had a lot going on with the cancer, but I hadn’t heard about the lung tumor. I’m so glad I got to meet calendula_witch and got to catch up with you, and keeping my fingers crossed that the stressful times ahead will be fill with physical healing and with happiness as well. Keeping you in my thoughts.

  3. I am pretty sure that the pink sugar cod candy is good luck. I hope you plan on finishing it off for the good of your health.

    …But also, ditto on what thelittlefluffycat said.

  4. I know you are strong, but don’t think that you have to pretend to be fearless. We’re all here, all listening, all thinking of you.

  5. Strength without weakness is like courage without fear, it just can’t happen. Hang in there Jay, we’re all pulling for you.
