It took a bit of time for me to actually decide to talk about December 16, 2008 the day that changed my life forever. I still remember with melancholy how I felt that morning, I was waiting for my biopsy results to come in and my husband was deploying overseas for a year. Of course at that time my melancholy was mainly my husband Dave's deployment, little did I know that to add to that was the soon to come news from my Doctor's office. For those of you that do not know, I had never had a mammogram done...incredible I know, but as my fabulous Oncologist told me, "this is the time that God decided for you to get your mammogram not earlier" I guess he is right.
So began my journey into this area that is so unknown to most of us and certainly to me, as know one in my family has been a victim of cancer. Those of you that know me will appreciate the fact that even though terrified so many times through these months I have stayed strong, positive and rebellious as usual.
But before I continue to talk about me, there are some very special people that have made this time for me manageable.....each of them has touched me in their own special ways. Some with a great listening ear, some with tears, some with hugs and kisses, some with hours and hours of wait with me at doctors offices, treatments, some with faith, positive thoughts, some just by being there and being truthful with me and for traveling to assist me from far away. To all of you thank you, I love you all!
