July 10, 2012 — Big Talk Done

Well…. I finally sat down with my Mom last night and had a long talk with her.  Though I had told her that I had been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma….. I hadn’t really explained what it was.  Now she knows.  We discussed the big “C” word and I told her what my options were and that this was a very curable kind to deal with.  I also told her I wasn’t sure I wanted to take the conventional treatment road yet.  It’s a matter of much prayer for me right now.  I was amazed at how well she dealt with it, considering all of her daughters right now are dealings with some medical issues.  We will all be fine, but it’s just a lot for a 90 year old woman to take!  Especially when she’s not in the best of health herself!  Perhaps this will be a time when we all draw closer because of needing to help each other through all of this!  I suppose it’s a blessing in disguise!
