When my one year old daughter was diagnosed with RMS, a malignant tumor in the urinary bladder my husband and i were very upset. We can't eat and sleep for a couple of weeks. It was very hard for us to accept her disease. She only turned 1 year old then when she was diagnosed. She was too young and she is our only child.
I thought her difficulty in urinating, just a simple uti. It never came into my mind that it will ended up with a more serious one.
Yesterday, my wife and I have gone to the MetroParks farm again, after not being able to for ages!
I asked Denise to take photos of me, as I didn't have recent ones, and thought it would be good to have them for comparison and reference.
So here I am... 30 pounds less do show, especially in my cheeck bones protruding again.
More crow feet and white hairs, too...
About one year ago, my good friend Kyle Macintosh was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Ewing Sarcoma. Kyle is a 23 yr old scholarship track runner at the University of Colorado at Boulder, from Littleton, Colorado. No one has been stronger and more positive throughout his battle than he has been. Kyle was in the process of the same clinical trial that Stuart Scott went through. Recently Kyle endured a bit of a setback when on Christmas night he suffered a serious brain aneurysm, which resulted in a stroke.
Had my port removed today. Feeling like I'm closer to the reality of passing from this life. Finding it hard to live in the moment. I find my mind wandering to the past and all those wonderful memories and wondering how my husband can do all the things I do in the house and the yard when I'm gone. He doesn't know a weed from a flower.
Just woke up from a nap I took because I felt so bad and in pain.
Pain is not much better now, if any. :(
They told me I could be sore tomorrow... something to look forward to, right?
Here is today's composite of what I look like tonight, after the radiation session.
