…these few precious days

“…that’s just the way it is with the new normal.”

What the heck does that mean?

There is a current television commercial for a Detroit hospital, featuring a woman fully made up, with a lovely head of long-ish hair.  The commercial says that the hospital found “her” cancer.  In fact, it is not “her” cancer.  Rather, “she” is cancer’s.  Even after treatment is declared a success, she will always be cancer’s.  That’s just the way it is with the new normal.  And not to put too depressing a spin on it, but facing one’s mortality changes a person.  Am I frightened of the future?  NO!  But I do understand that there are fewer days to my future than there once were.  There are things I need to document.  Hence, this blog.
