Bump in the Road

by Nola on August 27, 2011

I wrote a few days ago about using writing to ride above your troubles, to find solace and distraction, and the joy of doing real work, in crafting a story. On that day I was still awaiting results of a uterine biopsy. Yesterday I got my diagnosis. Cancer. Looks like early stage. Looks curable. On Tuesday I’ll see a cancer specialist who will tell me more and probably schedule me for a hysterectomy.

I have to admit I am having some trouble focusing elsewhere right now. I need a really strong story to work on to pull me in. Reader comments and encouragement would be gratefully accepted.

UPDATE:  On October 5th I had a total hysterectomy. the cancer had spread to my ovaries but not into my lymph system. With a few months of chemo, I’m going to be just fine.  Hmm.  Another interesting experience. There’s always something. That’s what it means to be alive.
