Feeling sad tonight...

It has yet to sink in that I no longer have any visible cancer in my body. (I still have to do 2 or 3 months of chemo to kill off any stray cancer cells.) But, there is a huge light at the end of the tunnel for me. And just as I'm feeling pretty good, I attended my Arlington softball team's game tonight. It was nice seeing everyone for the first time since my most recent surgery.

My coach, Randy, came up to me and told me that his wife was diagnosed with cancer today. I got a lump in my throat. I remember how I felt when the doctor told me back in December. It's such an overwhelming feeling. Somehow it's almost easier to have it happening to you then someone else you know. You don't feel as helpless when it's you. I feel so badly for them and their kids. :-(

Hey buddy, it was great seeing you again at the game too. Thanks for making it out. Sorry you witnessed a game we could/should have won but the post-game camaraderie was a good time, as always.
