Today just dropped off the calender.
Three years ago today I started my journey with Lyme Disease. At least the portion of the journey that I am aware of enough to acknowledge.
Three years ago today I went to Jefferson Hospital's ER because I was experiencing Tingling/Numbness in my arms/hands, muscle issues, and nausea.
Three years ago today the physicians at the hospital referred me to neurology for an MRI because they assumed I had Multiple Sclerosis.
Three years ago today I stopped eating and didn't resume until 4 weeks later.
Three years ago today I started crying...
If today dropped off the calender- I wouldn't mind so much.
Especially since today I was told that my eleven year old niece *has been diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia... AGAIN. She just finished oral chemo last month and was in for a routine check up this morning only to be blindsided with the news that she is again positive for Cancer.
Like I said- if today dropped off the calender... I wouldn't think about it twice.
*The link provided just connects to my post two years ago when my niece was originally diagnosed. I include it ONLY because it gives a bit more detail regarding the cancer... I thought about not including it because I was clearly not walking in a manner that chose trust over fear and or peace over controlled understanding. A mild embarrassment escorts the fact that I included that link... but I suppose we'll just chalk it up to growth!
Thanks for your prayers friends.
