As with any journey this one has it's long straight paths and twists and turns. Just as I thought the trail ahead was laid out before me and I knew where the end was I was surprised with a turn in the road yesterday.
This is what I thought the path looked like; just 4 more chemo treatments and then the TESTS! I have been mentally preparing myself for the tests...in May, after chemo.
I received a call from my oncology nurse yesterday saying my doctor wants all tests done sooner, during my "week off" from chemo. But wait, I am not ready for that.The trail just went to the left instead of straight, throwing me all off course!
I guess it's time to wrap my head around this unexpected part of the journey and pray that this chemotherapy is doing it's job.
Just a test or two can determine what the next day looks like, what is going to happen with your life. Incredibly difficult decisions often have to me made. I don't think I'll ever get used to it.
Your thoughts and prayers are truly appreciated over these upcoming weeks. I know I am never alone on this journey.
