Thoughts, Stories, and Bits of Wisdom
Here is the link to Part One: http://oneoldsage.com/2013/09/09/the-7-things-ive-personally-learned-about-prostate-cancer-part-one/
I’ve developed some very good blogging friends since I started my blog. However, the post that has received the most attention was my post on living with a woman who had a double mastectomy. That woman was my mother. http://oneoldsage.com/2013/05/22/mastectomy-one-mans-perspective/
This post brought me in touch with women from around the world. Their strength in the face of cancer is astounding. Their stories brought tears to my eyes. Some of them I still follow and are at the top of my reading list.
Some of these women are suffering from metastasized cancer that is causing excruciating pain, debilitating treatment side effects, enduring other personal crises, and are well aware their prognosis is not good. Yet, they take time to write a blog post, throw in some humor, and make me forget my trivial problems.
I’m not going to mention them at the moment but if you check the comments at the end of the mastectomy post you may figure out who they are and want to follow them too.
So, for those of you that are wondering, I’m doing great! I hope you are too!
In closing, here’s an Irish Toast that I think is appropriate:
There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be.
