Cancer Retrospective

Coming out of this cancer ordeal, there are a few ideas that have gone through my head over the course of it that I find worth sharing with you.

  • I was only able to say, "I have cancer," with certainty for half of one day. Sure, there was a lead-in period where I was fairly sure, and a post-operative period where I might not be clean, but trust me when I say that "almost" is not at all the same thing as "for sure", and half a day is not much time for any of it to sink in.
  • If I had not been diagnosed and treated, I would probably not be here in another 10 years
  • I now have or have had the two most emasculating illnesses that I, in my meager experience, know to exist.
