Ok, so I have Cancer. And that really sucks. BIG. Some days are bad. Some are good. I certainly NEVER expected that my doctor would call me on a random morning and tell me I have the big C. My life forever changed in that moment. Nothing in my past and I'm sure in my future will ever change me like that phone conversation did. Once the tears pass, and it finally sinks in, we get down to business. And this is my story of how we get this business done. I will have some good news, some bad news (hopefully not a lot of that), some random venting, and even some humor...as I am trying to keep my sense of humor as much as possible through this whole thing. It's the only way I can cope. Really. So hopefully this will serve to keep all of our family and friends updated on progress and setbacks and general stuff going on. Hopefully this may help someone else at some point as well, who may be travelling this same crummy journey. One who begins a site of their own and needs some insight, information or just to read someone else's story to know they are not the only one to go through this mess. To know that they CAN do it. There is a light at the end of this tunnel and it's gonna shine bright. I cannot thank my family and friends enough for all of the help and encouragement. It means EVERYTHING.
