I find myself looking down a road, one that I never thought I would have to travel. But here I am standing on that road. I cannot see beyond the bend. I wonder, what lies there?
How did I end up on this road? No one knows the cause. Yet it can happen to anyone at any time. With me it began with a simple cold. One that I got over pretty quickly. But then I got another cold less than a month later.
Getting ready for work one day I notice that the glands in my neck are swollen. And they are in other places too! Did you know you have glands in your elbows? Neither did I!
So off to the Dr.’s office to see what the heck is going on. I have to have a blood test to see what that shows.
The results were not good. I have a number of elevated levels. And, I have smudge cells, which are blood cells that develop too quickly causing them to burst.
Today, I find myself on this road, looking towards the bend and wondering where this will take me. I have been diagnosed with cancer!
