Due to the tumor’s proximity to facial nerves, it could not be biopsied.
Odds were in favor of it being a benign tumor, but . . .
Anyway, I decided that if I had cancer, if I was going to die, I was going to enjoy the time I had left without worrying about the future.
It worked! Those 3 months were among the BEST months of my life.
When people asked me how I could be so HAPPY with that uncertainty hanging over my head, I said, “If I’m going to die, I’m going to enjoy this time.”
The nurses frowned, pointing out the serious nature of the coming events.
I laughed, “I know. It’s serious business, this surgery. I might die. All the more reason to enjoy the NOW.”
“We are HERE and it is NOW . . . what else is there?”
Stay positive. Imagine best case scenarios. Enjoy every moment you can.
Aah . . . that’s better!
