My life changed dramatically and forever when I lost TJ.

I welcome you to follow along as I adjust to my "new normal".

It is not all puppies and ice cream but it is my life....real and honest.

Are You Kidding Me?!?! I Don't Have Time for This!!

First of all I want to let everyone know that the prognosis for TJ's Mom is not good at all. Having said that though, she is a fighter and a tough woman so maybe with a few prayers and some finger crossing she can beat the odds that were given to her.

I, on the other hand, went to the Gyno today for my yearly "well woman exam". Geesh they make it sound so glorious don't they? Turns out that she found a couple of lumps on my breasts (yep, both of them) and wants me to get a diagnostic mammogram right away. My regular mammo isn't due until November. As soon as I get my Mammogram I am to meet with a doctor for a surgery consult. What the hell!?!?!?! I truly don't have time for this and I told her so today. I especially don't have time for any type of surgery let alone cancer. I am still taking care of TJ and he is not well enough in my opinion to begin taking care of me. Although, if you ask him, he is ready, able, and willing. Frankly, I appreciate that about him, but we already have enough on our plate and I sure don't need to be an additional burden around here. We are just keeping in mind that we had a scare similar to this last year and it all turned out OK. This year though is in a different location and both breasts. It is what it is and we will do what we have to do.

Just a reminder to everyone that TJ gets his scan results Wednesday afternoon so please cross things and pray for him.

  1. We will pray and wish EVERYONE luck. One thing you make the normal problems - ups and downs of every day life seem so small.

    Just to know we are thinking of all of you and know you and TJ are both very strong people as is TJs Mom.

  2. Sandy, that is so scary. My thoughts are with you. Keep on keeping the faith, girl.

    And let out a big long winded scream if you feel like it.

  3. I'm so sorry ... how does this happen?

    I'm going to hope and pray for good news all the way around.


Please, let me know your thoughts
