Never have these words meant more to me than in the past two weeks.
Sadly three people to whom I was connected in different ways have passed away during that time. I wrote about one of them, a former colleague who passed away at 91, here.
The other two, neither of whom I met in person, were in their 70s. My heart goes out to a friend who lost her mom and another friend who lost her soul mate.
May all three rest in peace.
I haven't posted lately; nothing like breaking a New Year's resolution.
But I think the reason I haven't been able to come up with anything to write is because the almost-daily medical appointments have stopped. My online cancer journal came to a halt.
But today that changed..I went for a bone density scan. That's gotta be the easiest medical test ever. And none of that pesky fasting beforehand!
It was a new machine and it was really fast. The woman administering the test said it used to take a half hour. This lasted five minutes.
I'll get the results in a few days from my primary care physician and then schedule an overdue physical with him. Last year with all that chemo and radiation (now just a memory) just didn't seem like the right time to have a physical.
So...I wanted to see if I could still write a blog post. It looks like I can.
