Tears of Joy

I got the best news this morning. Turns out, things are not at all what I had been told and my future is chock full of hope and optimism!

I haven't been shared many details here, but in November 2011, I was diagnosed with a chronic, terminal condition. Preliminary prognosis was bad, bad, bad. I had seen a specialist who determined my case to be too complicated and last week saw a second specialist who ran me through some additional testing. This morning I was scheduled to discuss the results of the tests and identify treatments and life expectancy. I was shocked to learn that the testing and research uncovered information that completely pulls me out of the chronic and terminal categories. My condition is treatable! I can feel better again!

My brother offered congratulations on a second life and I really do feel like I've been given a fresh start. I've been crying on and off all day with the good news. My eyes are burning and heavy. I am exhausted. My thoughts and feelings are scrambled eggs. But I'll sleep well tonight with a smile on my face that I thought I had lost forever!
