How do you end a blog about chemotherapy or any blog for that matter? I started this as a way to keep friends and family informed of my progress but it turned out to be more than that for me. It’s a journal containing memories from my past, it’s a diary of current events for me, and has a hint of the future. When first diagnosed with lymphoma 12 years ago my goal was to see the kids graduate from high school. After they did, Ann suggested I may want to establish some new goals.
I'll take care of myself. I'll live my life so that when someone says "be yourself," its good advice.
It is my family’s turn to end this thing. I asked Eunice, Ann, and Dallas to each write a concluding post for the blog. They can do the shouting. I didn’t really give them any direction. Maybe a letter, something silly, a joke, a recipe, or anything they want.
Something magical and unintended happened. We have a wooden snake that hangs in our kitchen. The words “Eat Good Food, Be Kind, Tell the Truth” are burned on it. I choose those words to conclude each post. It surprised me when I read the posts Dallas, Eunice and Ann sent me that those three themes came up independently in what they wrote. I couldn’t have asked for a better ending.
I love you all.
