Diagnosis….CANCER!

I’ve been having some problems for a while now and over the last month I’ve had ct scans, blood work and a surgical biopsy.

Yesterday I got the diagnosis…I have CANCER!

It’s called Follicular non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I have to have a bone marrow biopsy (that freaks me out just typing it) and a colonoscopy to determine how far it’s progressed. There is a spot on my lung that they are going to watch for a while to see if it grows. It could be a met or it could be nothing.

All sorts of things are floating through my head at the moment and it’s bringing back a lot of baggage from Heather’s battle, along with new baggage. If I let my mind wander, it scares me and the thought of just letting it run it’s course has crossed my mind. However, I have two very important men in my life that I have to think about so my goal is to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible. They have been through so much already, this hardly seems fair.

So here we go, the beginning of another chapter of our lives that revolves around cancer……
