Old man



I’ve completed six sessions of Chemo Therapy.  The Doctors says I’m in kind of remission, and we will continue the immunotherapy for a time because I still have active mets in my spine.  It’s good news, nonetheless, I look in the mirror and it looks like I’ve aged years in the past 6 months.  What is even more scary is an acquaintance unexpectedly passed away from I assume the complications of a surgery to repair a hernia.  Although, he was in poor health he was only 63.

I can only hope my strength improves quickly, this being weak is hard to deal with.

Tomorrow is granted to no one.  Yesterday has come and gone won’t ever be again.  Today is all we have.  Let us make the best of it.
