  1. I don't hate Tom

    Just thought I'd put that out there. And my confrontation with Bubba was unfortunate. I am not unhappy. When I read his post, I PMd him to see if he was kidding or serious. "Serious" was his only reply. So I had at him. As I said, unfortunate.

    I forgive myself this kind of outburst because I know I'm dealing with a terminal illness. I think I'm dealing with it very well. And, if you can believe it, I'm busy and happy. I try not to think about what the future holds, because ...

    So a few months ago, Tom's sister had a restaurant party for about 40 people celebrating their 50th anniversary. Of course, Tom and I were there. At that time, she told us about the big summer party she planned for tomorrow.

    Though I've had lunch with her several times since, she never mentioned the party to me again. These kinds of milestones are hard to weather. I considered his family my own after 18 years so leading up to tomorrow has been a bit difficult.

  5. Update

    Good news for me...my last scan came out good so I get to stay on the Opdiva cocktail instead of heavy-duty chemo. Still no symptoms of any kind except shortness of breath. I swear I am blessed.

    I've had a hard time coming to terms with what happened. I call it mental masturbating. I tend to hash and rehash what's happened and have been borderline obsessive with Tom's unbelievable behavior.

    The counselor suggested a journal. That's been helpful. And I've come to manage ...
