Cancer is a great deception. The doctors act like they know what they are doing but to be honest it’s more of a puzzle to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
It creates lies as you go on with life thinking things may return to a “normal” and normal may never come or be so much further off than you think.
I am currently about 3 months out from my surgery, yet I’m still using a cane and have bad days. I don’t expect to be some superhuman but I thought I was stronger than this. This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Harder than Olympic weightlifting for sure and nothing in that prepared me for this and I’ve lifted lots of heavy things that were mentally and physically taxing.
Getting back to my normal from cancer will most likely look different but I want to come back and be strong again. Like the 6 Million Dollar Man we have the technology we have the ability to rebuild him better, stronger, faster. The promise I make to myself though is I will be getting up everyday to fight the best fight I can.
