This afternoon finds me watching the earthquake coverage for the east coast and being thankful that we are not involved. What fear something like this must generate in people who remember the recent Japan quake.
Fear is something that we know first hand, and fight all the time. Fear of suffering, death, losing loved ones and being out of control. We all realize that we should calm ourselves and have faith, but when the bottom is dropping from the market and homes are selling for 60 percent of the asking price just two years ago, it creates plain old fear.
So I can understand how Deb would feel about the liver scan scheduled for September ninth. There is already cancer present, we know, and the last scan was several months ago, so a bit of fear or concern would be expected. We will know more after the scan.
We see some good results in the lymphedema therapy, with a steady decrease in the retained fluid. That has Deb feeling better.
With September 11th coming soon, it's not too early to remember those who died in that terrible tragedy.
Being content is the hardest thing to do, but if you can pull it off, you will find much more satisfaction in life.
