Lately, we have been going through some unexpected trials. I could easily say that it is me and I am going through it, but that would be a lie. I have the best husband. He completes me and really is my better half. He is going through it; as are my family and close friends. Terms like cancer get thrown around and you find out how very different it is when it is you that gets tested and has to wait for results. Life can change in a week. You meet “the one” or you buy a house, or maybe you unexpectedly lose someone; whatever it is, it happens suddenly. Without warning happens every day, we don’t think about it unless it happens in front of us or in our periphery.
I have researched any diagnoses I caught the doctors saying this week. I wanted to be prepared. Nothing prepares you for someone handing over what the next week or month or what duration of life statistics looks like.
