[cancer] Slogging forward

Since the diagnosis of my lung tumor last week, I've managed to be phenomenally busy (and therefore distracted) almost continuously. This includes quite notably a long, busy weekend as Toastmaster at WFC 2009 in San Jose in the close, loving company of calendula_witch. On my (delayed) way home now, to the peaceful quiet of my home, therein to dwell with only the echo of my thoughts. I've been very deliberately postponing much of this stress, reveling in the distractions, and charging forward toward the cliff that is surgery, biopsy and chemo. The debts of that postponement are being called in.

I know I am strong, but this will be tough.
