The Big C has now invaded my life
Well, I know have a new battle to deal with. A certain family member of mine has been sick with what they originally thought was a thought infection. This member has been to the er twice in the last two weeks. Well now the Xrays were faxed to this nameless family member's primary care doctor, who referred him to a throat specialist immediately. The special st called yesterday and said to bring this person in asap. (This member asked me not to post who they are on my blog so I am respecting their wishes). I mentioned that I would not be able to pay the copay until Friday. They said don't worry about money, just get "person" into office. They are willing to work out payment arrangements. According to the X-Rays there is some type of growth on his throat that is interfering with his/her ability to eat. I am going to wager a biopsy is the next step. Why did this befall my household? I am scared to death. That is why I haven't been commenting and writing as often as usual, between work and this new situation. Trying to be strong and get myself prepared for whatever news I might hear this afternoon. So please everyone, keep my family in your prayers. I will update tonight. Thanks for everyone who is supportive of my little rantings and online babbling.. It keeps me sane.
