Follow Up Dana Farber

Posted on

Back in Boston today for a follow up with medical oncologist. He is a part of the team that is in charge of my care. 

The appointment was at Dana Farber and in the same office where I met my surgeon, Dr Ferrone, 2 years ago. It is a bit surreal to be back here. I was always next door at the Brigham for treatments and follow ups. The only time I was in this office was day one when Dr Ferrone laid out the game plan. 

While I waited for the doctor it gave me a few minutes to reflect on the journey over the past 2 years. I have come to realize it is all about the journey and not the destination. 

Whether it is a journey like mine which has been filled with a roller coaster of experiences and emotions  or someone else’s trek, it is all about enjoying the ride. I adopted that attitude when I first heard the “C” word and it has changed me forever. 

Sometimes I still get caught up in “life” and forget to see, smell, touch and generally take in and enjoy everything around me. Now it is a lot easier to get back on track enjoying life and realizing how many wonderful things I have in my life.
