next steps

we have some timing for the next steps.

i will have my full body scan on 12/2.

we will meet with the surgeon on 12/9.

the caveat to that being if the scan shows that my lung is not the only area we have to be concerned about, then i will meet with my oncologist again because that will likely change what our next steps may look like.

i am still pretty numb from the news on wednesday, and am really just trying to put one foot in front of the other and breathe.

it has hard to get your bearings when you simultaneously feel like curling up in a ball and crying your eyes out, cursing at the fates, throwing anything and everything you can get your hands on because you are so angry, being really sad, feeling beyond scared, having constant nausea -- all the while trying to keep moving forward. because life goes on, even in the wake of really shitty news, life has to go on.

today my girl turns 7.

and i will put all of those other feelings aside to focus on that and celebrate her and this day.

this is her day, and i am super thankful to be here to celebrate it with her.

i hope that you all have a really good weekend.

do something fun. laugh. hug someone. call someone. or just give yourself a hug, you did make it to friday after all.
