This is my “other” blog and may or may not get much love from me. I just didn’t want to weigh down my main blog, Pied Type, with the details of my cancer treatment. Not everyone wants to read about such things.
Cancer is certainly not the road I’d have chosen, but at age 72 it probably shouldn’t have come as a huge surprise either. There are, after all, several even less desirable roads for senior travelers, and none of us gets to choose. The prognosis is good, however, and I expect to be around for quite a few more years once I get past this rough patch.
I’m a doctor’s daughter who followed in his footsteps, sort of, by becoming a medical journal editor (now long retired and living in Denver). But that certainly didn’t make me an expert on cancer. I was as shaken by the diagnosis as anyone else would be but I’m trying to keep my chin up, my head on straight, and my nerves under control. I’m not always successful, but I’ll keep on keepin’ on.
