I’m going to post parts of my memoir Becoming over the next few days. This is part of the last chapter that I wrote:
Nobody wants to get the phone call that I received on Aug. 28th, 2022. I had had a couple of CT scans to check on some growths that were seen in my lungs during regular imaging. On this day, the thoracic surgeon told me that he thought that there was a 95% chance that the growths were cancerous and they needed to be removed.
I was in shock and didn’t hear another word this fast-talking doctor said. The good thing was that Veena, one of my daughter-in-laws who is also a doctor, was also on the call and she got all the information. The doctor, trying to inspire confidence, told us that he was the best thoracic surgeon in Manitoba and that I was lucky to have him as he really was 2 doctors, a PHD and an MD!
There is nothing that makes one appreciate good health as much as being sick and that is certainly true for me.
