2 1/2 weeks. It's been about 2 1/2 weeks since the doctor first told us that my mom most likely had cancer. Multiple Myeloma, a type of blood cancer, if you want to get into the specifics. Even though we were nowhere near, and still haven't received a confirmed diagnosis, the news hit us hard. I can't even begin to tell you how devastating that was for us. It's as if the ground beneath your feet has given away. Like the air in your lungs has been sucked right out. Life seemed surreal, dream-like. How could this happen to us?????
