Another Leap Year

What do you know, tomorrow is Leap Year and I'm still here to experience it.   I always felt like GOD was giving us an extra gift by allotting us one additional day every four years.  It's another day to commune with family, to get stuff done, and to just enjoy life.  I never thought I'd see another one.  When I...

Against the World

Sometimes I think that life isn't very fun these days. No, I'm not just talking about this illness and what it brings along. I mean, how discouraging it is when you turn on the TV or browse some articles on the net only to find depressing lines or overdramatic news. I put up a barrier around myself in defense without...

Digital bonds

The world and how we communicate with others has changed so much over the years. Now it's possible to form tight bonds with someone across the ocean, someone you have never met in person. How will I end my digital life? Do I want to designate someone to sign in for me, make a post explaining that I've passed away...

One fine day.

How was your Valentine's Day? I hope at least it was not bad by any means. It had always been just another day for me and my boyfriend. Perhaps a fancier lunch and dinner than our usual ones, but those were all. And yet, a box of chocolate and a simple flower bouquet yesterday made us laughing at each other...

Reminders

As much as I adore them, all three of my adult children are driving me crazy with their daily reminders and admonishments. 
 
Don't forget to take your medicine.
Did you call the doctor?
Have you eaten yet?  
You're getting enough sleep aren't you, Ma?
Are you doing your exercises?
Did you check your blood sugar this morning?
Don't forget...

Prepare for Secondhand Embarrassment Dear Reader

I miss physical intimacy.  I met my wife while I was in the U.S. Coast Guard.  Not to brag, but I was quite the stud.   My wife used to love watching me shave and shower, but now I hide away.  My muscles have been replaced by loose skin and I'm riddled with scars from surgeries.  Plus, I'm bald thanks to...

I can still feel her ....

My wife was a vibrant, out-going person who made my life so beautiful just by being a part of it. She died of heart problems a few months ago, and for a while I lost myself in my grief. It felt like the sun would never shine again, but what they say is true - time does heal a broken...

Dreaming at the end of the year

It is the end of the year soon. The last few months have brought me a lot of great moments, so I feel ready to face it. I have been traveling, visiting remote places to experience things I never thought I would if I were healthy. (I have never spent almost a month tending to the farm and animals!) I...

Our choices

I met a relative two days ago. We are not very close, but I know that he's been through a lot. The new love he found after going through a divorce is now disabled because of a brain tumor. He then said she was doing better than usual, but her check-up results showed otherwise. He cried when he decided to...

Thankful

I have a lot to be thankful for and since it's so close to Thanksgiving Day, I thought I'd write it all down.
1.  Healthy and happy children and grandchildren who visit often.
2.  A dog who looks at me like I'm the best thing in the world.
3.  A kitten who cheers me up by purring and making biscuits...

Gone are the days when my single status was the biggest issue.

These holiday visits are not going like I'd hoped.  I was really looking forward to seeing my extended family who fly in for the holidays and had expected us to carry on as usual with our family traditions and fun.  However, it's clear that my terminal illness is weighing heavily on their minds and it's changed the whole dynamic.  I feel...

A Good Death

My dad used to always say that all people want two things in this world, a good life and a good death.  As a kid I found that strange, but I get it now.  Well, I've had a good life.  It's been great actually.  But what does a good death look like?  For me, I guess it means spending my...
