It isn't just about me...
It's about us.
Who knows exactly how this will affect my kids... I can tell you now that the first month, which I've dubbed the diagnosis month, is much different from this month, which I've dubbed treatment. The flurry of activity ranging from phone calls to flowers to last minute 'play dates' [so that mommy can go to another doctor appointment] affected them. They noticed. Of course they did. That's what kids do.
Just like my family, girlfriends, neighbors, facebook friends, twitter community, colleagues, former students, + community have.
Because it's not about me, it's about us.
