Gut Wrenching Fear
Is what I feel . After my Son Robert had an ultrasound for some back pain on his right side yesterday, I mean just yesterday. Just yesterday we thought he was healthy enough, Just yesterday. Today however, we know better. Robert got a call that the specialist he was sent to has some news, and wanted Robert to go to his office straight away. I went with him. The Dr explained to us that Robert has kidney cancer. Gosh my head started to whirl, I was thinking , how can this be, there is not cancer in my family, He's only thirty years old.
Roberts right kidney is going to have to be taken out, followed by chemo, is the plan for now. Everything is moving so fast. Poor Robert just seems to be going delirious, after every statement he will laugh and say I have cancer. I guess his way of acceptance? My husband died of cancer last year. We are still recovering from that, now this. I'm just writing my thoughts down, so I can concentrate on my son clearer, once I've worked out my fear, I can help my family get through this.
