“Barbie Anderson had no reason to believe that this particular Thursday would be any different from any of the other approximately 8,395 days of her marriage.” Quote from The Ride
I chose that quote because, like Barbie, my life started spiraling out of control on a recent Thursday morning. Although it was after approximately 14,235 days of marriage and for entirely different reasons, I still found the similarity rather ironic.
I’ve always been a happy, healthy, active, non-smoker. I took it for granted that I’d stay that way, at least for another decade or two. So you can imagine my surprise when I paid a visit to my doctor for what I thought was a minor little respiratory virus on a Thursday morning and found myself in a hospital bed by Thursday night. After over a week’s stay, I received a diagnosis that totally shocked me—lung cancer.
After a few ups and downs and a roller coaster of a ride, Barbie regains control. That’s exactly what I plan to do as well. I know it won’t be easy, but I’m prepared to fight aggressively in order to return my life to normalcy as quickly as possible.
I intend to post the remaining blogs written by Kate Gladstone on handwriting starting tomorrow. After that series, I will probably begin posting once a week.
I do, however, have some good news to share—the Kindle edition of The Ride is now available for only $9.99. Click here to download your copy.
I appreciate all your good thoughts, prayers and well wishes after my previous blog. Your comments and emails meant a lot to me.
Thanks for stopping by.
