Well, I don’t. But one thing I’ve gotten good at is figuring out how to do stuff I don’t know how to do. And it usually starts with asking people who have done it or are doing it in a way I can relate to. So I’m reaching out to those inspiring people who have or are beating cancer and are living large – and by living large, I mean going about their business, working, taking care of families, accomplishing great things like finishing advanced degrees, having babies, planning vacations or emptying the dishwasher, being positive and thankful.
My first order of business is to calmly wade my way through the next 9 days, which include Easter and a business trip to California, leading up to my next CT scan.
I choose not to worry. I have to choose this daily…sometimes hourly. But it’s my choice and I can reject the temptation to fret, and choose instead to put my trust in God and get on with my day. So that’s what I’ll do.
And I’ll be calling on the cancer conquerors for advice and support.
Also, my chemo destroyed the skin on my fingertips. They are now covered in what appears to be a collage of hashtags.
