I am sitting in the parking lot of Starbucks in Howard Beach waiting for a 10:00 AM appointment. After that I am driving a little deeper out to Long Island for a 12:00 lunch meeting. Then on to Mt. Sinai in the city for day one of ten for radiation on the hip bones. Afterwards I will head to Gumbert field in Westfield to watch Victor play baseball.
Tomorrow at 7:45 AM will be day 2 of 10. After I get zapped in the morning I will have a full day of appointments in the city and then off to the Subway Series (Mets vs Yankees for the non baseball fans out there ) with my family.
Thursday 7:45 AM I will get the hip zapped again then head down the shore for an all day conference where I will be giving a one hour presentation with CE credits for financial advisors.
Friday 7:45 AM Dr. B will zap the hip for the fourth straight day. Then I will work in my office and later head down to Rehoboth Beach Delaware with Victor for a weekend baseball tournament.
Life doesn’t stop. Nothing changes. Cancer? Yes – I have Cancer but right now it’s just a minor inconvenience. It’s a morning drive into New York City to treat the afflicted area – my hip.
My mind? My mind is not afflicted. – at least not yet. Nothing changes. Cancer is part of who I am and part of my daily work load. Nothing changes.
Thanks for all who sent along well wishes for today and future days. We are counting on radiation to do its thing. But whether it does or whether it doesn’t – nothing changes – family, work, Cancer. What a life!
