Let the sunset not be my time running out but only the hour of the day. Sarah Kay . I have a shirt with this quote on it. Corny right? It’s gray with black cursive script; you’d have to look really hard to make out what it says. But I knew, and I liked the sentiment. I wore it under a sweater in late 2017 to an appointment where I got the results back from one of my scans. My tumors grew. I haven’t worn it since. . That’s the thing about most of my scans over the last three years — they’ve almost all been bad. No exception for the one I had about two weeks ago. Tumors are growing. One in my liver kinda decided to go rogue over the last 3 months. . This time, unlike most others, I knew this scan wouldn’t be good. For maybe the first time ever, my cancer was making itself known with symptoms beyond the ones caused by surgeries, treatments, etc. It started with intense itching, scratching myself until I bled on some nights. Justin wondering aloud, “I think your eyes are more yellow than usual. I’m not sure though.” Yellow-toned skin followed the yellow eyes, and at that point we were hoping I wasn’t in acute liver failure and *just* had a biliary duct obstruction caused by a tumor. . Fortunately, that was the case. I had an ERCP procedure last week at Mayo and it seems like the stents they put in are helping my bile ducts quite a bit. Small victory! I was completely knocked down by general anesthesia for a few days but I really am feeling (& looking!) better every day. . I’ve been in San Diego since Friday. What was planned as a training trip in December has morphed into more of an I-desperately-need-sunshine pick-me-up! Turns out trying to escape your problems with a vacay is harder when your body is the problem. 2.5 weeks ago I was actually getting fit. Back to square one today with a slow 3-miler accompanied by some vague abdominal pain I hope continues to fade. . Soon I’ll be starting a new drug with some pretty harsh potential side effects, but my cancer is at the point where I don’t have many (any!?) other options. . So here we go! I can’t do everything, but I can do some things. Like enjoy this beautiful sunset. ❤️
