My Return to Blogging   Leave a comment

I’ve had an epiphany of sorts in recent weeks which has brought me back to this blog with a new perspective on just about everything. I abandoned the blog shortly after being diagnosed with colon cancer last November. I went to the emergency room thinking I had the flu but after a CT Scan was given I got the bad news. Suddenly my priorities changed completely and the blog was forgotten.

I’m now 10 months into my cancer education after suffering through MRI’s, CT Scans, sonograms, colonoscopies, PET Scans, and three fairly serious surgeries. I lost most of my large bowel and a third of my liver and had a port permanently installed in my shoulder to receive chemo therapy. I’ve had 12 session of chemo which is almost worse than the cancer. Blood tests every two weeks with a mandatory doctors visits to analyze the blood results.

It sounds awful and unfortunately and guess what . . . it is. This will be the only time I’ll bring up the dirty details of my experience. I just wanted everyone to know why the blog was abandoned.

This coming Tuesday I’m scheduled to meet with the Oncologist to find out if I’m cancer free. Cross your fingers for me. I’ll keep you posted.
