Today was my first full day back at the office. Well I cut out an hour early, but considering the events of the past two and a half months I will call it a full day. It was nice to get back into a groove, chat with my coworkers, and take care of my clients.
Normalcy. After two and a half months of crazy it is nice to have some normalcy.
It's odd though, while my family and I are gaining some normalcy we are living in a very new normal. A new normal that affects every aspect of our lives. A new normal that carries a significant reality. That all said it's still just a new normal, and now we have a new way to look at life.
So let me reintroduce myself. My name is Josh, I am a husband, a father, a music nerd and I happen to be a Cancer patient.
My coworker and I were picking up lunch for the team and we were chatting about this fact. Now that the surgeries are done, and phase one of my treatment has past its back to reality. Obviously, how I approach this reality has changed, but with all that said the fact still remains. I am Josh.
I think that this will be the focus of the blog for a while. By this I mean how does my Cancer affect the way I live my life. How does it affect the way I love my family, my friends, and strangers. Trying to answer those and other questions in a single post would be too long winded, and that ain't my style.
