Plan for Neutral News

I have been tested, inspected, injected, scanned, crammed, and stuck. I have been covered in warm blankets and greeted with sweet smiles. I have been hugged, kissed, wished well and prayed for. The results are in. I just don't know what they are. It reminds me of the first day, May 27, as I stood in my closet and wondered, "what do you wear to the appointment when you know you are going to be diagnosed with cancer?" I have decided that the best approach for me is to take the advice of a Stage IV and plan for neutral news.

Stay tuned.

It will be what it will be. Not much to do until then but snuggle with dogs, listen to Springsteen music, and pass the minutes by. Not knowing is always a mystery and mysteries are scary because we don't know the outcome. When in truth, we never know the outcome. Hang in there kid. Have a Spam sandwich.

My hugs and prayers are with you, Elyse. And it is true, what you have control over is how you live with whatever the news is. I do so pray that your news is good. And as I've come to "re-know" you over this time, I know that you will continue to live life to its fullest. Much love, Wendy
