Time is zipping by . . .

9 Aug

Wow, time seems to be going by fast. I have surgery on September 9th, one month from today.

Kind of a bit sobering. There is much to do. And, it seems as though every day just zips by lately.

I had a really great weekend. Saturday was a really nice day, went to a barbecue and spent some time driving along the coast, spent time in Venice Beach and just had a great day. Sunday was my nephew’s 2nd birthday party. It was great to see everyone and especially nice to celebrate my nephew’s birthday. I saw many people, family and friends, some of whom I had not seen since before I was diagnosed with cancer. I wasn’t able to attend my nephew’s first birthday party last year because I was in the hospital. So, it was really wonderful to be able to make it this year.

At my nephew’s birthday party, I heard my Mom talking to some of my sister-in-law’s family about what I have been going through (what we have al been through together, especially my parents) in the past year and a half. It was weird to overhear that and to realize that my Mom needs to talk about my health and the problems I have had . . . makes me feel bad . . . knowing that it is not just a valve that can be shut off. I need to be more cognizant of the fact that just because my Mom and I hang up the phone after a conversation, it does not mean that she stops thinking about everything.

We have all come so far this past year, it has been quite a bit of traveling we have done . . . I still wonder if we will make our way back . . . or at least travel far enough away from all of this that it is not the topic . . . that there isn’t a need to talk about it.

Well, it was a great weekend. I will post some pictures soon.

Love and peace,
