Since Chris was diagnosed with cancer a week ago today my legs have gone to jelly and my arms seem to follow suit from time to time. Even when I think my mind is being positive and I have pushed the bad thoughts to the side my legs betray me and remind me that all is not well and life will not be the same for a long time....if ever! I long for the week before last when we were oblivious to all of this and words such as Cancer, tumour, CT scan, MRI, chemotherapy, radiation treatment etc belonged to someone else and were rarely thought of in our house. I'm tired of cliches already.
