It Took a Truck Accident
Six years ago I was involved in a head on truck accident. Hurt my knees, back and neck. X-rays than an MRI showed growths on my thyroid, that's it. Doctor had to break my chops to go ENT about the thyroid. Mind you I hate doctors (haven't seen one in twenty five years). So I finally go, test after test. Setting up for operation. My doctor asked me aside from my thyroid how do I feel (this is six months after the accident). I tell her I'm fine except for a sharp pain in my chest. Right away they check my heart, nothing. They send me for x-rays down in the emergency room. Waiting there the em doctor walks past me and says you have a 3x3 spot on your left lung and keeps walking. I'll never forget it. I stood up and yelled, "you have a funny way of telling someone they have cancer!" But little did I know the the next few weeks would start my new life. In the last five years my left lung than a piece of my brain. It came back two more times. Radiation therapy, now one more time. This time it's in my right lung. Really nothing left but chemo. I'm doing everything they say with really no questions. God bless a truck accident.
Do you find that staying zen through your lung cancer diagnosis has helped you in your journey?
