Life is surprising
How many times must I add another volume to my autobiography?
At the time I wrote my “Walk With Dann Collection” I had not expected to live much longer.
My kidneys were a mess.
My congestive heart disease was at stage 4.
Things were not looking well for me.
Then I got diagnosed with the non treatable cancers.
So I wrote “Old Man With The ‘C’ – A Cancerous Walk With Dann”.
At the time believing my story had come to an end.
The cancer diagnoses led to me writing Old Man With The ‘C’ – a C Walk With Dann”.
After a horrible 15 month battle I thought once again my life was over.
As did all my various doctors.
We were wrong.
I did die twice through the battle, but alas, the Viking within me refused to lay down.
My Cancer team at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre are baffled that I live still.
They use words like “miracle”.
All I know is now I am writing another volume detailing the life and times of The Last Canadian Cosmonaut.
And I will continue writing this, my newest adventure, “Dying Dann’s Adventures.”
Give thanks for the life you have been given. Things can change in a flash.
Until next time, I remain, Dann – just as I am.
