Sometimes I know people think it isn’t possible to find something to be joyful about every day. And it’s likely some think that even more impossible for people living with Stage IV Lung (or any) cancer or with a serious, chronic condition.
I’m here to show you that’s just not so. My belief is that everyone can find or make some joy in their day. I hope to help others believe this is so.
Here’s some info from my latest stable (since being on Lorlatinib 26 months) scans and MRI. You can see I do have some challenges (not to mention side effect challenges), but also so very much to be grateful for:
In my lung from radiation: Unchanged left paramediastinal radiation fibrosis with ground glass opacity, bronchiectasis and architectural distortion. No new or enlarging pulmonary nodule.
In my meninges (brain lining): Small posterior foci enhancement in the left occipital lobe with associated SWI foci again noted unchanged.
In my liver: Stable treated metastasis in segment 5
Okay, enough of that! My point is that it does not get in the way of finding and making joy in my day Now here’s a look at my morning, just an hour of my morning yesterday.
An hour filled with just a few of things I find such joy in.
