How your reply made me smile!
I have tried to make my motto " Make every day count" and I do. Even simple things I appreciate and take much more pleasure from, things that really were not important, but would have wound me up in the past, I can just let them go - they don·t matter, and the people around - the "trying ones" were just put here on this earth to make us appreciate the good ones.
My dad, who died last year, was not a great believer in the afterlife, but believed that this life was heaven, jut that you had to have your eyes opened to realise it.

Oh Jim.

Normal? Normal is a thing of the past. You will be so much better than your old Normal! You will be cancer free!
But you will change. I know I have. My old normal was putting one day after another. My NEW and IMPROVED Normal is.......... I have a life to live!
Every new day is a new gift of time. Time to know that God gave me a wake up call, and said, "Get out there and appreciate every person and day that you have"

Normal Jim? I don't think so.

If you are forced to go through this cancer scenario, you will gain a new perspective on life and the people around you. Even the trying ones will seem sorta special. Or even somewhat entertaining.

There is no normal after cancer only a new appreciation of life.

Light a man ON fire and he's warm forever.

Thanks George. The forums have been such a help. I hope my news won't be too bad on
July 12 but after reading the comments I feel My life will get back to some form of
normal. I am retired so my life isn't real demanding.
