This is a phrase we all hear when dealing with cancer. For me, I said it to myself every night when I was going through chemo, dealing with an ostomy, and preparing for my MOAS. Every night, I couldn’t wait until it was time to go to sleep so I could forget about everything, even if were for 7 or 8 hours.
Now that there is a chance I might have a recurrence, that phrase pops into my mind occasionally, especially at night. Throughout the day I can occupy my mind with work, riding my bike, etc., and at night I remind myself that I made through one more day. For the next few hours, I can forget about cancer, surgeries, chemo and all the other sucky things that come with having cancer.
For anyone dealing with a possible life threatening disease, you learn two important things.
1) No one is guaranteed tomorrow, so live life to the fullest, to the best of your ability.
2) And when things get tough, you only have to worry about living life, one day at a time.
