How long do I have to live?
What kind of future do I have?
None of us really knows…
But my chances are greater…
To die early,
To develop more serious health problems,
To need to do things differently
But I will make the most
Of my days
And live like they are miracles,

I was reading today in the newspaper an article about a cancer survivor and one of the first lines talks about how she always worries in the back of her mind about relapsing or recurrence of her cancer. It's so true-it's something that for me never goes away. It may fade at times or be out of my thoughts for somewhat longer periods but it's a constant and it comes rearing it's ugly head sometimes.
Thankfully it has been 3 1/2 years since there has been cancer found. (Sure, there's definitely been lots of 'scares' and 'spots' that are hard to discern what they are in my body, but as far as we can tell, it's "all good" and that's good enough for me!)
Anyways, it was just some thoughts I had and a poem I wrote last week that tied in...
