I managed to be sufficiently busy this weekend not to worry much about cancer, life issues and mortality. But the next round of checks are two weeks from today, for bloodwork and CT scan, and two weeks from Wednesday for the oncology consult.

It's gnawing at the back of my mind. Either I'll lose close to a year of my life at untold emotional and social costs, or I'll be fine. The next bridge on my highway of life may be out, and I won't know until I reach it.

In the mean time, I continue to go 900 mph in every direction, ignoring the panic which seeks to consume me.

What Everyone Said.

For myself, it's worthwhile to pay attention to what helps me when I'm going 900 mph in every direction. I'm often surprised what I find. And then I forget. We humans are such strange creatures, we always run to the least effective strategies first.

Dude, the bridge can't be out! They just announced The Hobbit will be released in three parts. You must see all three. You must! Julie N.
