I have never dealt well with paper. For years, I havewritten lists of things to do, books to read, people to see—and then ignored them. The same disregard awaited articles I’d torn from magazines and newspapers. Now lots more paper has come my way: instructions from physicians and nurses, laboratory reports, medication lists, hospital bills, insurance filings, solicitations. Knowing my uneasy relationship with paper, I have let most of it pass by. But I’ve saved a few pages, the ones my hematologist scribbled on the day we first met, when he told me I had acute myeloblastic leukemia.
