Way off topic but needed to vent...

Tomorrow I have to take my two year old to get tested for Leukemia.. I have some how managed to keep this a secret for the rest of the family as I don't want to make anyone worry if there isn't a need. Only my mother knows as she lives with us.. We are in the process of buying a new home and close on it next Wednesday which as any of you who have been through the home buying process know is stressful in itself.. I feel like I may actually be lossing my mind.. On the down side to keeping this a secret I have had to deal with all the fear and breakdowns on my own.. I just needed a place to vent and knew that I was safe among my spinal family.. If you could just keep some fingers crossed for us until we get the test results back, which I am unsure how long will take but I will know tomorrow... Thanks..


  • I am praying for you and your family. I can't imagine the emotional pain you are going through. Have positive thoughts..and the wonderful adventure with the new house!

  • Angela we are all with you. Think positive tomorrow and all will turn out fine. You are soo strong to take this all on yourself. Remember the circle of spineys :)

  • Thank you all a million times.. I will let you guys know something as soon as I hear anything.. My daughter hates needles so I know that she is not going to be a very happy little girl but as long as the blood work comes back normal she will just have to get over that needle poke... Lol.. I'm just ready to know.. Either our lives are about to stay boring which I would love or our lives are about to change in ways I can't even imagine right now.. Thank you all again for the prayers..

  • That's ok Brenda.. I've done it before also.. Well I didn't sleep much last night.. By time I feel asleep my alarm went off.. I have to bring my son to school and then wait until the appointment which is at 10:00 am... And then if I am out in time I have to go put on a happy a face and have Mom's Moment's with my son at his school. I just hope they don't make us wait to long for test results.. I just don't know that I can handle anymore added stress... Thank you guys so much for letting me vent and get this off my chest.. I know I am safe with my spinal family.!.!.!.!

  • I am so sorry that you have this worry in addition to all your other problems.

    I will certainly pray for Brooklyn, you and the rest of the family.

    Please do let us know how things go and what the results of the tests are.

    Take good care of yourself too :-) xx
