Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today: 2.52 miles; Running Total: 165.62 miles)
Day 200 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.
Tina is here and we spent the day at Johnson Space Center. It was a beautiful day and it was nice to see a full tram-ride. I love seeing large groups of people interested in the space program. It’s a cause near and dear to my heart.
Around four in the afternoon I got a call from the doctor’s office telling me the time for surgery tomorrow.
And suddenly, despite a day of sunshine and fun and spacey-nerdiness, surgery was real.
Like, holy-shit-this-is-happening real.
It’s really happening.
I don’t feel brave. I don’t feel inspirational. I just feel scared. And all I can do is watch my hands shake and try not to cry.
I don’t want to do this. I don’t. I just want to go hide under a rock somewhere and never hear the word cancer or surgery or treatment ever again.
Today’s silver lining: Tina, for taking over my life.
Even as I type this in my bedroom, I hear her cooking spaghetti in the kitchen with the kids. I am immeasurably grateful to her for doing something as simple as feeding my kids.
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments!
