Yesterday, as I was editing my blog on my 2011 Bucket List, I was looking at the photos I have on file of when I had cancer. I haven’t got many scanned in, just a few, but in the next few weeks I think I might dig some more out.
I thought perhaps you might like to see some of them.
A couple of weeks ago, after spending six months focussed on a very directive Bible study, I decided to set my Bible aside again for a while. I’d begun to read my Bible the way the author of the study wanted me to view it – as supporting evidence for their various points of view. It was becoming less the beautiful, challenging, irrepressible work I know it to be, and more like an encyclopedia. Oh yes, I have an answer for that, let’s go to such-and-such a reference. That’s why I love to read the Message Bible. You can never actually find a damn thing to back up your argument.
Today, my doctor ordered me some blood tests, which he knows is one way to make me feel very much better already. I am very blessed to have a GP who is understanding of both my real and very colourful medical history, and my penchant for illness-related anxiety. He knows if I get any inkling whatsoever something could be cancer, I’ll be there in his office in a jiffy, and thus, there I was this morning. But he’s patient, and very firm with me. I’ll get my blood tests, but probably not much else unless something is really wrong. He’s told me more than once to get on my bike when I’ve asked for CT’s, biopsies and a radioactive iodine scan. Besides, if I have one more scan, I’ll probably be responsible for my own leukaemia.
