Bad News

It is 1:00 in the morning and I find myself doing something I never do, sit in front of the computer in the middle of the night. Tonight, I got news that nobody ever wants to hear. Three simple words that will change your life and perspective "you have cancer". Wow! I really never thought that I would be that person. Cancer happens to everyone else, not me.

From what my doctor said, I have a treatable form. Thyroid cancer which is very treatable. My doctor seems to think that I will be treated and have a full recovery. This of course makes me feel better. But, it doesn't lessen the blow of "you have cancer". I am sitting here this evening, terrified that I might not fall in the majority on this one. That maybe mine won't be treatable.

I have been reading every site I can find tonight on this cancer. It is unanimous, it's treatable and I will in all likelihood be fine. I pray that is the case, that one little cell won't break free and go somewhere else in my body where it can multiply. I hope that I will have a simple surgery and the radioactive iodine I am reading so much about now and I will cured. That has to be the ending to this little hiccup in my story. I still have so much to do and so much to see.
