We had a new television delivered today, and it was an emotional moment when they carried the old one out. We purchased it 16 years ago when I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Treatment — surgery and chemotherapy — had begun, and our family was facing a gloomy week of February school vacation. It seemed like a good time for a little retail therapy, and the TV we had was old and out of date. When our kids saw the new, larger one they said incredulously, “Our family is getting a new TV?!” Here was a bright spot in an otherwise frightening scene. Losing my cat Paganini this June and replacing the 1994 TV leave me feeling that I really have turned a corner.

Does that make any sense?
