My cancer buddy Ted, who had the same cancer as I but whose first surgery is so far his last, just wrote: “I’m at an event where this song was playing, and my heart went out to you.”
He knew it was my favorite song, my theme song, a song that sometimes reflects where I am in life but other times spurs my aspirations and gives me hope. He sent me this link:
Tomorrow I will be in the hands of the surgeons. I’m lucky to have a great medical team in whom I have complete confidence. About this time tomorrow it will be over, and I will already be healing. So no worries. And if you do think of me tomorrow, think of this song.
Ted, you brought a tear to my eye.
But a good tear.
