Last night, the fall air was almost more than I could take! As much as I love this weather - I had to close my bedroom windows. I even brewed some tea to take the chill off. I cannot believe it's almost November. Time seems to be flying by so quickly. I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving with my family!
The transition back to South Carolina is always difficult for me. I feel a little "blue" and not busy enough. Especially compared to how busy I was in DC. I know I have to figure "this one" out....so I started figuring. :) I organized some of my"stuff" and put some of my other "stuff" aside for the neighborhood yard sale on Saturday. I dusted. I alphabetized my cd's. Ohhh this is beginning to sound pathetic!!!! I also decided to start making my Christmas cards early. Of course, I say that every year...and every year I find myself cramming to get them finished and in the mail.
I failed to mention I began writing this while waiting for my test results. The good doc says my head and brain are tumor free. Phew! That's GREAT news. He also said he isn't sure why the cancer is progressing again at a fast rate He told me that if doctors had an answer for why...there would be a cure for the disease. One of the last things he said to me was it's only a matter of time...
I didn't so much care for that sentence. Even though I knew exactly what he meant and what he was eluding to.
I'd much rather think of that "news" just as my sister said... "it's a matter of time, God's time." Therefore, I'm closing this tonight with hope and optimism. In 2001, my oncologist told me I'd be lucky to see two more years. When my cancer later metastasized to my lungs, it was less than eight months. We all know...God isn't quite ready to handle my fury. :) So, in God's time it is.
