I've started about 6 blog posts this week and have deleted every single one. I wasn't sure how to say this, but here goes...
My mom has bladder cancer.
It's early and extremely treatable - thank god - and as far as cancer goes, this is a good one to have. But still...that word...it's goddamn scary.
I didn't want to say it in an, "Oh! The sky is falling! My whole world is shattered!" kind of way. And I didn't want to say, "Eh, no big deal. The news hasn't affected me at all." It's somewhere in between. And usually I'm pretty ok with words, but I don't have the right ones for this situation.
My mom and I have an amazing relationship. It wasn't always that way. We didn't exactly get along when I was younger. We didn't like each other very much for about a decade. But now...we're friends. Not just mother and daughter. We like to hang out together and that's awesome.
So...I don't know what else to say so I'll end it here.
