What a pain!

Yesterday I had a pain in my shoulder.

I thought it was cancer.

Then, I remembered I had used hand weights during fitness class.

The day before I had a pain in my liver.

I thought it was cancer.

Then, I asked my brother-in-law who had had liver surgery years ago if he experienced any pain yet in his liver.  “Yes – even 30 years after.  There are times when I still get twinges.”

Today, I have a pain in my butt.

Wait – that “is” cancer.   It has to be – because cancer is a pain in the butt!  grin.

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.

    My experience is, even after 5 clear years without cancer—I have pain and yes I do the same thing as you “is it cancer” unfortunately the thoughts appear and I try, with all my might, to suppress the feeling and remind myself how very blessed I am.

    Love that you don’t let the C word take over your sense of humor.
