One Year Ago Today... I was shocked when checking in and saw Oncology attached to Hematology...
One Year Ago Today... I was presumptuous about my 'good' health and saying to myself... "huh"... I don't belong in this Dept; I couldn't have cancer... I'm just really anemic! Cancer doesn't run in my family, so I'm really only here to have my blood tests analyzed. I'm just really fatigued and tired from the semester; I'm not sick...
One Year Ago Today... I was my goofy and silly self at this appt and they must have thought... O boy... this gal sure is clueless!!!
One Year Ago... a Week later... I was receiving serious phone calls from my Doctor
One Year Ago... a Week later... I was going for more blood tests which turned out even worse than the ones before and was told I may have to be hospitalized and receive emergency blood transfusions
One Year Ago... a Week later... I was surprised and shocked by an "unscheduled" Bone Marrow Biopsy
One Year Ago... a Week later... I was beginning to realize something serious might be going on with me
One Year Ago... a Week later... it was nearing the Holidays and I went about celebrating AS IF EVERYTHING WAS OK
One Year Ago... a Week later... I was awaiting the results of my first Bone Marrow Biopsy and beginning to process the seriousness of my situation... but still in optomistic denial
One Year Ago... a Week later... I still was still convincing myself everything would be ok... had to be ok... and NOTHING REALLY could be wrong with ME... THEY must be making a mistake...
