Next part of the journey

today I had my intitial body CT scan with contrast.  I’ve had ct scans before but this one is way different.  It is the base line for everything else that comes after.  Tomorrow I see my oncologist and we will see what the plan is for the future.  It has been difficult to mentally prepare myself for what comes after. So many unknowns.  But like with everything else the came  before, facing forward with determination and faith.  Can’t stop now.  Too many plans have been made and many others to be made. Looking forward to car shows, fishing trips and road trips.  Nest month there is a plumeria sale in Corpus Christi and I will be there god willing.. after my appointment tomorrow, I will post an update.

it has been a challenging time.. it has been hard to keep focus with so many distractions but I have to be strong and continue forward.  That’s the hardest part. One of the most mentioned factors in recovery is keeping a positive attitude.  It’s very hard when you are surrounded by so many thing that want to bring you down.  Small things, large things trying to distract from what’s important.  The ability to prioritize is very important.  So many lessons learned just from one diagnosis.  But we keep moving right along.

folks, I cannot stress the importance of listening to your body.  Don’t take anything for granted escpecially if you have some years on you like I do.  If you are not sure, go and make sure.
