The other day my son “Mario,” age 9, asked me about how I got cancer. I wasn’t expecting the question at the moment because we hadn’t talked about it recently. I explained to him that sometimes cells in the body start to misbehave and start doing things they shouldn’t or sometimes they don’t do things they should. I really don’t know why it happened to me.
I do have to say that I still feel really well, and I can keep up with my 4 kids. It does feel like the size of the lymph node in my left armpit has gone down now that I have been on Talzenna. It’s hard to tell for sure though what changes are occurring. And of course, I have no idea what changes are happening in my liver – I have to wait for the PET scan for that.
But, God is good, and He’s been seeing me through this. Through this journey, I have been able to reach out to, and encourage others. It can be so hard to walk through this and to stay encouraged. I know God is there and He has been there with me the whole time. But, I still wonder sometimes “why me?”
