Since learning of my breast cancer Tuesday I have had a LOT of information thrown at me. Not counting the MRI, there have been 3 appointments with just info, info, info. And yes, while I had other ears to listen at all the appointments, still, it's overwhelming.
Also since Tuesday I have been inundated with e-mails, facebook comments, journal comments, phone calls, etc full of love and wonderful and lovely comments. And have so many people thinking and praying and loving and caring for me. And while it's all good, still, it's overwhelming.
I have bronchitis, so the coughing, the sore throat, the stuffy nose, etc. All of that feels overwhelming.
I still have some more appointments to go. I have a few more I need to schedule. All of that is overwhelming.
So it seems the theme of the week is overwhelmed. I am overwhelmed with knowledge, with love, with support, with sickness, with fear. You name it. I'm overwhelmed.
So in my own way, I've moving through it all slowly. Just a little reading at a time. Responding to e-mails, phone calls, the like, slowly, one at a time.
But please know that I appreciate every message. Every phone call. Every card. Every comment. Every prayer. Every thought. Every single thing. I may not respond right away, but I am carrying all of your love and support in my heart. And it is helping more than I can say.
