“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” -Albert Einstein
It’s 4:30 in the morning. Tears flow from my eyes as the news of yesterday floods my mind. Another x-ray confirmed a new mass on the right lung. Not again, I plead with the air. In the quiet darkness of the morning, I fumble down the hallway to my computer to pour out my heart. Thoughts run through my head as I silently beat myself up…Should I have done the chemo? Would it have made a difference? Did I let you down? What else could I have done? I’m overwhelmed by this demon that has invaded your body once again. I’m so sorry buddy. I had felt so certain that you were beating this thing and now I hope there are other alternatives.
