You Want to Send Me "Where"?

   As we have continued on my journey with cancer, I have had sharp right turns, low gear downhills, but my journey took a U-turn.

   I was told that it would be to our families interest that I now be put in Hospice Care. 

    Say What?  The whole reason that this journey is so exciting to me is that I am experiencing life in such a beautiful way, How could I stop now?

     Spring is right down the street, ready to show me more beauty than I ever seen.

    I am willing to fight this cancer straight on, and I can face this battle, but HOSPICE???

    I sorry doctor's, but as my family informed you today...

                 NO WAY!

   I am dying while living, why take that away from me. I don't want my family to get a phone call in the middle of the night to say I am gone.

    I want to look at my family and tell them my journey has come to a end here, but I will go on, as so will my journey.

     HOSPICE, Ha, you can't catch me.
