WOW! What a year it’s been. Just about a year ago I decided to start a blog. Some might ask why? It’s a lot of work, much more than I had anticipated when I started it.
Why start a blog?
I started my blog because last December (on Christmas Day) we found out my dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. I have an Uncle who passed away from Prostate Cancer that metastasized to his bones. So, needless to say the news that my Dad had Prostate Cancer and was high on the Gleason Rating Scale, was not good news. To avoid dealing with the news mentally and in an attempt to stay strong emotionally (which I’m not!), I decided to start a blog. To be honest… probably not the best reason to start one. It worked though. It kept my mind busy because I had to figure out the whole process with no idea of what to do! (A side note…If you’re wondering about my dad, we received some misleading news on New Year’s day that the cancer had spread, thankfully it hadn’t. Then he underwent a total prostatectomy at the end of January. He has been cancer free for 10 months now!!!)
