I know you are all frantic about the fact I haven't posted in two weeks. When a cancer blogger stops posting...well.....minds wander.
The fact is, my mother died. She passed away on December 31st.
I hadn't seen her in a couple of years, and we have only spoken a couple of times since I began this blog. My mother had her own health issues, as I had mine. I won't eulogize her in this space, but I will say this: my mother was proud of this blog and the writing I've done here, and knowing that, I have had a little trouble composing my first post since her death. Writing about a torn rotator cuff seems a little trivial at this point in time.
However, in truth, life goes on, as it will when I pass too.
Mom, I hope that you don't mind that I continue this blog as I always have.
Of course, being my mom, you know I'll do what I want anyway.
