The Beginning: July 25, 2013

This morning I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Even as I type it, it doesn't seem real.  Two months ago I discovered a lump in my neck and assumed it was absolutely nothing.  Never did I imagine I'd have cancer.  Cancer.  Nope, still doesn't feel real.

I don't have many answers now.  I should meet with an oncologist tomorrow and will figure out where we go from here.  At this point, I know it's definitely treatable and I know that I will beat this.

Check back as often as you want, I'll be posting throughout my treatment so everyone can see that I'm doing ok :-)  I'm sure it won't be a fun journey, but I'm thankful to have a great husband and an amazing support system on my side.  Everything will be ok!

The "My Diagnosis" tab above has more information on the last two months leading up to the diagnosis, check it out.  Feel free to ask questions.  Feel free to talk to me about it.  More to come soon....
