To say I’ve been distressed since my doctor brought up the possibility that Lymphoma may be rearing it’s ugly head in my life is an understatement. I wallowed in self-pity this weekend. Then, I shook off my fear, held my head high and headed to work. I knew the chaos of my day would allow me to forget that Cigna hasn’t authorized my final scans this week yet or that I have to cancel my back procedures making me vulnerable to more pain and walking issues. But, my attempts at distraction while working were failing until my friend Jenna placed a bag on my desk. In it was a bowl she bought for me while at Disney World. The notion that no matter how far I might be from those who care about me I’m still in their thoughts made my day and put me at ease.
