    I use to always think "ok, worse thing that can happen is.." But this time I was like "They are playing it safe, EVERYTHING is going to be fine" NOT

    Oh No

    My heart sank, when they told me it was Cervical Cancer. my thoughts were all over the place, but not on me per-say.. who's going to care for my mom, who is unable to walk due to a stroke, and all her other health husband, love him, but my house will be trashed in no time with him & 5 dogs. how long will I be away from my residents? who's going to are for them? {I'm an S.T.N.A. and I care for my residents like family. I MUST make them smile daily.} Am I going to be like my resident in room 101, she was not in good shape. *For REAL!!? you just tell me I have Cervical Cancer, I'm bleeding like a.. don't know what, told you I do LOTS of lifting at work..and you want me to go to work on Thursday, this is Wednesday? REALLY!!?.
