Summer Surprises of 2019

By “Cancer Survivor Al”

Recognizing symptoms, one by one
A deer tick infection, just begun
Set up an appointment with Dr Gus
A blood sample drawn, an identifying must
Results positive, Lyme back in play
Another result, an elevated PSA
A Urologist visit needed, a prostate exam
Biopsy called for, part of a plan
Awaiting results, a bad vibe felt
Early stage cancer, a bad blow dealt
A shot, medication, bringing testosterone down
Then eight weeks of radiation, reason to frown
All things considered, I still feel quite good
Life is a challenge, not always understood
Heart of my Hearts, says I’ll have more good years
For laughing, crying, loving and a few Yuengling beers!
