• Another 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 200 (Surgery Eve)


    Tina and I touching an honest-to-God moonrock at Johnson Space Center. I can’t think of a better to spend day 200 with than the person who started it all with me.


    Tuesday, January 27, 2015

    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.


    To me.

    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!
