Life has a way of taking us in new directions. In January of this year, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian cancer. It was a shock for John and me because I had a hysterectomy when I was 34. I had forgotten the ovaries were left, Doctors saw hysterectomy on my medical record and didn't ask further, so I was never checked for the possibility.
This diagnosis has changed many things for us."Living in the moment" carries a much more realistic ring than it did before. It's no longer a philosophy. It is a way of life.
Some friends have wanted me to serialize the experience of fighting cancer because ovarian cancer is considered a "silent killer." If it seems selfish, I apologize, but I don't relish letting cancer define who I am. To write a diary about it is to dwell on it. That is not my nature. I believe in marching forward, even if it means using a walker.
For indie publishers and authors, fighting any sickness forces you to regroup and re-prioritize. I have no energy to carry on all the required marketing activities to sell our books and still continue to write my novels and produce our travel books. Yet, John and I believe in our books and want as many readers as possible to enjoy them.
For this reason, I am introducing BONNIE'S BLOG POSTS.
Just click on https://bonnieblogsite.com/
Here I will present ongoing information about my novels, guest authors, favorite books (because in respite sometimes enjoying a good book is the only activity I'm allowed), plus additional tidbits about Bibi and Babu's travels. Having one place to meet, greet and connect with you is so much easier than individually posting and commenting at each web site.
Sometimes I will talk about fighting cancer. Sharing this experience strengthens us all. But, we must never let the disease dominate us. There is too much living to do.
