A friend of mine told me you’re supposed to ask people dealing with illness how they are doing TODAY.  It makes sense because having an illness is like being on both a physical and emotional roller coaster.  I don’t know what to expect from one day to the next.

Some things about today … I thought about naming my tumor Donald Trump because it’s a pain in the ass, won’t go away, and just keeps growing! Today I have serious pain in my abdomen that is only relieved if I am sitting or laying down.  I am basically housebound (Hello, Orange is the New Black!).  Today I am grateful for my Mom because she knows what I need without even asking and she takes care of Sadie when I can’t.  Maybe today I’ll write two blog posts.  Today I am trying not to think about tomorrow because my life is unpredictable; I want to live in the moment without worrying about what comes next.

Today isn’t such a bad day.
