People Ask

Sometimes people ask, "How's Mark?"  with a question behind the question. It's "How's he scary sick?  Can he still do things?"  Of course, anybody with incurable, inoperable cancer is sick.  However, he's not "not living his life".  Today he washed his truck, went to Earlington Greenhouse with me, planted some plants, and at this moment is making a salad.  He has to parcel out his energy, monitor his symptoms and rest as needed.  But he lives a life as valid and worthwhile anybody else's life.
