    The MRI Day

    Things moved along quite quickly and from the rapid nature of me getting immediate appointments, I could not help but feel the severity of what the reports were pointing to. 

    So, I got booked into a 8:15pm MRI appointment ahead of my biopsy.  Once again, it showed me that the signs were not good.  An MRI is typically done after the biopsy with the hope that cancer would be ruled out.  Not this time, I was scheduled and an MRI was my next step.

    I sat frozen at home unable to feel ready to leave the house.  I headed to the front door with Bruce waiting in the car warmed up….and I turned back.  I turned back to help eliminate the uncertainty of the experience. I quickly hoped onto a laptop in the kitchen, went to YouTube and typed – “what does an MRI sound like” – within a second I felt calmed.

    What to me was a scary unknown, was now nothing more than a loud alarm clock buzz that I knew I could even sleep through.  One more tactic to take away the unknown, and be in control of the situation. 

    For those possibly preparing for their MRI – want another priceless tip?  For me, I couldn’t use my hair tie since it had a metal bit on it.  I quickly thought how uncomfortable it’d be face down into the tube with disheveled hair making me feel trapped.  A personal side note for me, but the nurse getting a rubber band made all the difference for me.  Rest assured, MRI is not a terrible thing at all.  Count the “beeps” and you are done before you know it!

    The Third “10 Days”

    I took time for my first “10 days” to allow for the grieving and downward spiral…to get the emotions out and face the worst fears.  Second “10 Days” were to organize and do the necessary housekeeping on all fronts. 

    …The third round of my next “10 Days” served to be the most difficult.  Starting to tell people.  I felt blessed that our girls were 3 & 4 and that for all intense purpose, they could go unharmed from it for now.  One day they would know all about what mom went through, but nice that they could still only sing me nursery rhymes on some of my worst tear filled days.

    Who do I start to open up?  How do I come to terms with the pain people will feel at the sound of the news?  How do I let everyone know that everything will truly be perfect in the end?  Well, I thought I’d just go for it.

    I created a list of “10 people in 10 days”.  The list composed of the people we are most close to, those that needed to be the first to know.  The list then went across to people that just were the perfect support and in a position to provide wonderful support.  Next the list was tied to those people we just didn’t want to find out in a mass email so the list went quickly beyond “10″, but all the more was helpful for me to share the news and come to terms with facing the reality…and to be honest, to prepare myself for the news to tell my parents.  As a mom of daughters, I knew the hurt a mother would feel.  Part of me thought best to share with her before others, but in the end, I was all the more stronger to deliver the news to mom and dad in a straight forward delivery…situation, action and the intended positive result.

    In the meantime, each call made us realize what difficult news it was to share and the impact on those that loved us.  So the “10 in 10″ grew, but quickly we realized, we could never reach everyone that we wanted to tell personally.  Others said to us that everyone would understand, so I thank everyone that looks forward to getting a personal update and outreach when we are out of the woods and time back on our side.  We’ll always be here, but are going into a bit of under cover for a few months.

    Rest assured, we’ll be back —better than ever!  Please add comments as messages to us on each post here.  All will be read and responded to as we are able.  Many thanks for all your support in advance!
