On Sunday, November 17th, 2013 my loverman was diagnosed with cancer of the blood… leukemia. Holy sh!t!
This week has been one of the toughest weeks I have had to endure in my adult life. Cancer now has a name and a face and they belong to the very special man that I love and my children love and so many other people love with all of our hearts and souls. So senseless. It really is. But we can’t always choose what happens to us. We can only choose how we react to what happens to us….Providing there is not a serious and legit mental illness that prevents that from happening. So the immediate question we had to ask ourselves was… Are we going to make the best of it or let cancer get the best of us?
Since his diagnosis, our family has been taken on a terrifying rollercoaster of twists, turns, ups, downs and flipping upside down. We are all sad, devestated and shocked… even angry. Nevertheless, with the exception of some expected emotional breakdowns here and there, all of us, including loverman, are dealing with this situation with positivity and humor. It hasn’t always been easy, but we have managed to laugh more than we have cried. That’s how we do life and that’s how we will get through this battle.
Positivity and laughter are powerful natural methods of healing. I truly believe in that. Once again, I am going to prove this by sharing our journey with you. I also hope that by sharing our journey, we can educate, entertain, support,help and inspire others.
Bear with me while I bring you up to speed. Thanks for stopping by!
