  •  I just returned this afternoon with a trip to the (15+ / 0-)

    Doctor with my husband, who is never sick and never complains.  Unofficial diagnosis is gall stones.  The ultrasound results over the next couple of days will tell the story.  I will take care of him just as he took care of me through colon cancer, surgery, and a long recovery including chemotherapy for six months.

    You say that you "have no goals left but to survive today."  

    I'd say that is a pretty good reason for getting on with life and making the most of what is left of tomorrow.

    There is not a day that goes by, that I am not reminded that, but for the grace of God, go I.  The trip to the Doctor this afternoon reminded me that we have no guarantees.

    I do intend to make the most of what is left of my life.  I hope you will do the same.

      My lack of any vision or goal is troubling because all of my life I have had reasons to look forward and not back. It feels very strange to realize that all of the sudden there is no second step. Perhaps if I string enough single days together I will find a new purpose.

      From the day that Ed received his cancer diagnosis in 1996 we tried, and often succeeded, in living every day like it was the last. There is a true benefit to realizing that we really don't know how much longer we have to enjoy the ones we love.
