The last three years have taught me a lot about time. At various stages of Frank's illness time was of the essence, get this test, have this x-ray and yet he seemed to move through his illness as though time was immaterial. If he lived til tomorrow, great,
if he didn't, it would be o.k. Now as we know we are facing into another winter of chemo he and I are enjoying moments, sometimes hours but often it's just moments; a clear sky, this morning it was the sea rushing in in north county Dublin. The big learning
for me has been to stay in the moment. Until this cancer we always assumed we had a long future together - I now define 'long' as 6 months! So we truly enjoy each day, each visit with our children and grandchildren and each shared meal or treat. It makes life
less complicated even as we face into all the complications of chemo and lung cancer.
