If Cancer were a road map, it would be one you would not want to follow. First it would look like everything is all planned out, "do this and you will get here, go this way, and you end up at your destination". The road map is a liar also.
Sometimes even doctors say one thing, and it ends up being another, today I think they are liars but tomorrow I may realize they are only human.
On Friday my Mom's blood work came back and all 21 tiny vials showed high risk cancer markers. What that meant in her case is even though she took the hormones, and had the surgery, and her cat scans were clear, it is still floating around in her blood somewhere........waiting............the Doctor told us,............ not to turn back into breast cancer but possibly bone or brain ...............its amazing what 21 tiny vials of blood can show you and how fast they can scare you.
And of course it smacked us right across the face because Mom had did everything the Doc. said, and she followed her treatment plan that looked like a winner, well treatment plans lie also.
Tomorrow she starts her first round of chemo. We really don't know anything more than that. And if we did it probably would be incorrect...that is what I have finally figured out when it comes to cancer and the person we love. Nothing goes by the book, nothing goes by what the doctor tells you, or the internet, or the pamphlets..................cancer is powerful awful stuff, and we are scared. Its our Mom and at her age, we want to protect her and make promises, that could turn out not to be the truth. And then somehow we will have turned into the very things I am so mad at. The liars.
I know there are so many good and happy things going on in your blogs and I am truly sorry to write such a crappy one to start your day.
Please pray for Mom.
