Over a year after my liver resection, my cancer has returned in my spleen. My surgeon will remove my spleen this coming Friday. It will be another big abdominal incision. The past year has been filled with many firsts. First time I could not do a single sit up. First time I tried with all my heart to show my wife and daughter how much I loved them. First time I read a poem out loud at an open mike instead of playing the fiddle. First time I tried to reflect on my life and actions. First time to blog.
The trained engineer in me wants to analyze and build structure. Words do not stream from my consciousness to paper. I know I have more to share. But for now my posts may become quite rare. Rest assured that I will be doing a lot of reading during the weeks ahead on WordPress. A place where I can meet amazing people, learn through our common struggles and joys, and also learn how to open up and express myself.
