Newly Diagnosed Leukemia
God, I wish I could describe how I feel. Both my husband and a good friend described it like getting hit in the stomach. Both have aptly given the emotion a feeling. So those of you who really want to know what being in our shoes is like follow these steps.
Find a strong man, ask him to punch you just below the belly button. Then try not to cry…
That is exactly how it feels.
I am alternating between being upbeat, and knowing that we are doing all we can, and periodically just breaking out into tears. More like sobs actually.
I feel nauseated. I feel numb. I feel like I have never felt before.
My thoughts right now are to just add to this when I can, and hopefully keep as many people up to date as possible without having to tell everyone. As much as I love my friends and family, repeating this information is sucking ass.
Please if you have not contacted me in a while. Feel free to call, but just don’t expect me to talk for a long time. If I haven’t talked to you in like a really long time, leave a comment, and I’ll give you a new phone number.
