Still working full time. The company has its issues, but I enjoy the work and the people. It feels like I'm making a difference where I am, and it's a good use of my life experience. There's a lot of opportunity to mentor engineers that are early in their careers.
Having said that, I'm about
to turn 61, and my finance guy says I can really retire ok anytime now. Don't even have to wait until 62 unless I want to, which gives me little sense of freedom. I'm working because I choose to do so, not because I have to anymore.
I'm in a good spot with my post-treatment status, but with my diagnosis there's a decent chance this stuff could take off again. Not dwelling on it, or being pessimistic, but it's a reality that my "horizon" could be closer than otherwise expected.
Health insurance to me right now is the wild card. Need to figure that one out. No retirement health care available, except COBRA for a little while if needed. So, it's going to be whatever I can find on the market.
