[Cancer, Personal]

[personal|cancer] The good news and the bad

Just lately, I’ve been sleeping less. It’s been about a week, which doesn’t exactly count as a long-term trend, but I tend to be pretty in touch with my physiology and this is becoming noticeable.

Not coincidentally, just lately I’ve had a lot more energy. That started a week or so before the Florida trip, and has really amped up since. I have a powerful sense of life change in progress.

All of which is to say, I think I’ve torn off another veil of the cancer/chemo recovery process. Just in time to have my next round of tests in about four more weeks. At least I’m back now. We’ll see what these transitions actually mean. I have my hopes.

On the other side, my friend in the hospital with the cancer similar to mine has taken a turn decidedly for the worse, despite the recent optimism. This is about him, not me, so if you’re the type to manifest or pray, spare a few for E.H. He needs them.

For my own part, I confess I keep thinking, “My cancer, my chemo, this could be me.”

Life giveth, and life taketh away. Jay liveth.
