Update on My Journey to Health.

Posted on: September 22, 2010

As many of my regular readers already know I have been fighting my way back to a more healthier and happier person in the past few months. I am in week 4 of my journey. On August 3, 2010, I discovered that I have colon cancer. Treatment started after a move back to Michigan on August 23.

Having discovered the cancer is in some ways a good thing. Some on you may gasp at this comment but it is true. Knowing how precious one’s life is has helped me to focus on the things in my life that are really important and to let go of the other things that  aren’t that crucial. I feel more aware of the little things that make my life special, whether it is a pat on the back, a smile from a child or just being able to sit quietly and let the sun shine on my face. I have met  the most awesome people one person can ever hope to meet. My writing family has gathered around me and filled my emails with love and support. My non-writing friends and family have been super. The staff at the treatment center are fast becoming lifetime friends. My life is fuller and richer than I had ever imagined.

Treatment is going fairly well, if one can consider cancer treatment as something that can go well. The whole process has had its share of challenges but I am making it through and still smiling. Lol.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
