Alien99’s house got shaken up a few days ago. Mrs alien99 went to the doctor, and a biopsy was taken. Considering the nature of the condition, cancer was a prime suspect. I got a little scared. Cancer and I go way back to the early 90s, when my mom was diagnosed with it, and it ultimately claimed her life. I lost my dad to suicide, and now my wife was in jeopardy. If I lost her, I would have lost the closest 3 people in my life, and I don’t want to even consider my future if my wife was diagnosed and fell to cancer. This evening around 5 pm, the doctor called and gave her the news that it was NOT cancer, and to take a certain medication for a short period of time. Frankly, I’m comfortable staring my own fate in the eyes. I fully expect to not make it to 70. But losing her would cap my life off at the root. I’m still almost as happy as I was a few hours ago when the call came in. You never know how long you have with someone, so always make the most of it - a lesson well learned today.
i’m sorry you and mrs alien99 had that scare. I know when my partner first had her cyst removed from her ovaries and they came back benign I was so happy. She wasn’t feeling well when I first saw her ( coming back from surgery and all) but I did tell her when she was awake enough to talk that her tumors were benign. we cried we were so happy.
Thanks. I think I was more worried than my wife was. I’m generally expecting the worst, and I have an innate, deep fear of cancer. The word used in almost any sentence sends shivers down my spine. A condition to be feared and not trifled with to be sure.
Glad the news turned out that she’s going to be OK… very scary…
I’m glad things are smoothing out
I’m glad that things turned out well for you guys Greg.
Glad to see you back.
Happy its not something serious. Glad you’re back.
“We need to be quick to love people… they go away so fast…” (ks. Twardowski). I am so happy for you. I have also lost beloved ones. I had never used the word “love” before. Now I use it as often as possible. Me and my partner have a routine saying it to each other every night before we fall asleep. I want him to know in case I don’t wake up… share love… wish you and wife years of health and happiness. Take care.
