A couple of weeks ago, all unsuspecting, I walked through one of those invisible portals where your whole life is suddenly and utterly changed. This blog is an attempt to chart that journey: partly to keep friends apprised of what's up, and partly as a journal for my own satisfaction (things happen so fast in this new world and events can be so overwhelming, it's hard to keep track). As such, the I quotient of this record is embarrassingly high. I'd make little waffly apologetic noises, but buggrit, if you can't be self-absorbed when you suddenly find yourself having to learn the language of oncology, I don't know when you can.
My thanks to my friends, whose warmth and humour and affection form the bridge that connects my old life to this new one.Posted by maddy at September 5, 2003 06:25 AM
