Totally Worn Out

May 19, 2008

Thank you for your notes of encouragement the past couple of weeks. I really didn’t intend to totally disappear, and fail to update everyone. It is difficult to explain what I am dealing with right now, but I will attempt to do that.

Getting the big news that my cancer is in remission was somewhat like hearing the battle is won. However, after fighting my third recurrence for so long (nearly 18 months in all), it has left me totally worn out. Physically, emotionally, and every other way you can think of. I have a lot to be thankful for. And I have a lot left to accomplish to fully recover and get back into a normal routine. For bone marrow transplant patients they call it our “new normal.”
