I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the spectre of the new ground glass opacity in my lung wasn’t weighing on me a little bit, but then again… 

“There is a new ground glass opacity in the apex of the right lung.”  I would be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking of those words a lot this week.  After living 4 years with stable lung disease, I start taking for granted that the chance of relapse is there, but like the thought of dying it is such a distant thought it doesn’t weigh on me day to day.  But a new opacity changes things a little bit – a reminder that the woods will always be there, and that there is always a chance that I’ll have to venture in them again.  But, I had two other “scares” in 2012 and 2015 that turned out okay, so am knocking on wood for a third time.  It is not death that is so scary right now — it is prednisone and recovery from prednisone, which took two years of my life to recover from.  🙂  In the meanwhile, I’ll just enjoy each moment that the GGO is just that — a spot, a potentially harmless spot, and nothing more.
