It took me quite awhile after my surgery to get used to living in uncertainty.  It’s a difficult way to live, uncertain if you will be here in another 6 months, or a year.  I had trouble making plans.

But I eventually was able to make plans, and I went back to school for my Master’s Degree in nursing. I committed to new jobs.

Now I am back in school gong for my Doctorate degree!   When I complete it in a year and a half I will be Dr. Nurse!  Don’t know if anyone besides my students will call me doctor, but I call my professors doctor if they have a doctoral degree!

But life does go on, and sometimes just making plans and starting new things helps you deal with the uncertainty.
