Health issues-keeping my otherwise busy

   Dealing with cancer, or in my case, bladder cancer is almost a daily challenge. For instance, I've been to three different doctors all with their own approach to my problem. I could go to 33 and get that many more opinions.
   Then there are the daily aches, new pains, just small things that make you wonder is this thing moving around in there?
    It really plays mind games with you. Fortunately my wife is very understanding and friends are too. I don't think you really know what one goes through unless you have it.
   Anyway, I digress. University of Michigan bladder oncology was highly recommended. So off we went last week with all of my records and to meet a new doctor.
   I begin chemo next week for six weeks, then three weeks off before resuming chemo for another three weeks.
   I've been told that the reaction to this are flu-like systems and the feeling of being extremely tired for a couple of days.
   I guess I'll find out sooner than later. In the meantime, stay healthy.
