The Journey of My Jugs
8/7/2017 Latest post:
On Monday, July 3rd, the day before my 8th wedding anniversary, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The devastating blow left me speechless. I didn't have my husband beside me, nor did I ask friends or family to join me at the doctor's office on this fateful day. Although my gut feeling was right, I didn't think I needed anyone by my side until minutes later when the flood gates opened. I cried walking out of the hospital doors, I cried sitting in the car calling my mother, husband and friends. I cried the entire car ride home. And finally, I cried as I fell into my husband's arms when I arrived at home.
There's nothing that can prepare a person for the start of this journey. But the love and support I have seen over the last several weeks has been astounding. It's truly amazing to see and feel how many people love you and want to help you. I hesitated creating this site until a dear friend urged me to do so because people want to know how you are doing but don't want to overwhelm you with a phone call or an email.
So for those of you who want to know how I am doing, this site is for you. I thank you for stopping by.
