Its not a tumor....


So life in cancerland is basically summed up by the one thought: "will it come back?"

As this child helpfully tells us in Kindergarten Cop, that is the one thing we can't get out of our heads.

Every ache and pain could be a something, meaning a bad something. We have to learn is how to balance that thought. Sometimes helpful people say wonderful, well meaning things like this to us which help raise our cancer-cootie-concern-level. Or sometimes a peak inside our insides in an MRI, PET or CT scan gives us bad news. At which point the cancerland roller coaster starts going up the really steep hill and becomes a whirling twisting ride until we hopefully can get back to the smaller hills.

No I am fine but this video popped up on my radar the other day and it makes a valid point.
