Guess I need to process a bit more...

Yesterday I went to visit my dad in the hospital. The night before he had some kind of episode where he woke up disoriented so they kept him to do a variety of tests. When I walked into the ward, I had a sudden and very strong emotional reaction to being there. Even though it was a completely different hospital, it just really reminded me of when I was in for my laparotomy, and finding out about the cancer. I had to stop for a moment to breath deeply to stop the panicky feeling from taking over. Didn't realize this stuff was so close to the surface...


  1. It's normal to have those feelings resurface. I can go days or weeks, without any thought of cancer and thing one little thing will trigger some distant memory of surround my journey with cancer. Acknowledge, process, and keep movin...that's what I do.

  2. grey is easy to deal with - it's the new 'me' that's hard - as Kia says, Acknowledge, process, and keep moving...we have to! And we can - because we are Cancer Warriors! woop woop!!

    kicking it's butt is our daily bread - we WILL beat this stupid disease.

    I insist :o)
