(I Just Got Cancer) Remember, Tomorrow my be the best day of your life
My daughter is typing for me. Having extreme arm pain from severely degenerated shoulders. My oncologist was concerned I had cancer in my shoulders, but now said they are the most degenerated shoulders he has ever seen. I have huge fluid effusions that have debris. As I move my arms, the bones crack up and down my arms and the pain is just so off the charts, it makes me nauseated. I am grateful that it is not cancer, but he said they will never get better unless shoulder replacements can be performed. My peritoneal cancer is stable. The tumors are reducing and my CA125 tumor markers are normal. I still need a pet scan in a few weeks to check on them. He is sending me to a orthopedist in between. I struggle so much with depression which I know is from pain and my stress about or finances. We have fallen two months behind in our mortgage and I feel so bad that my daughter is working two jobs and we still can’t get on track.
I, Ang am typing and just want to say that we do what we have to, even though it just never seems to be enough. Our title is my motto though, because we have to “remember, tomorrow may be the best day of your life. To everyone out there dealing with illness and financial stress, stay strong. I keep telling my Mom to take it one day at a time. She worries so much. It is a great burden all the way around for us and for everyone in our shoes.
God Bless everyone, remember, tomorrow may be the best day of our lives.
Gia and Ang
