[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.

  1. I shall do all of the above and more for your friend, EH. Consider this the start of either a prayer or a manifest….

    To make this about me, when it shouldn’t be, lately, I’ve been sleeping four hours, and staying up 19. Not sure what to do with this 23 hour day that I’ve created for myself, however, there you have it…

      Thank you, sir. And where is the other hour going? Or are you simply time slipping as the days go by?

    Good too hear you’re doing well, Jay!
