    Oh No

    Turned 41 in September 6th 2011 went to an urgent care place given an antibiotic that I was highly allergic to due to thyroid that was taken exactly a year to the day that was told I didn't have cancer and a year later now have lung cancer UGH cmon...Now because of the allergic reaction I now look like Iam severely burned with the hives front to back head to toe so 7 days of fun finally the itching burning has finally stopped I return to urgent care for help with a cough that I thought was a small chest cold that turned out 3 1/2 weeks later I have phenomia walking phenomia . Went to the hosp on a Saturday admitted that night with a lot of fluid around my heart and lungs that needs to be drained ASAP. All this gotta be upside ? After surgery I hadn't even mayed it thru recovery an d the surgeon bends Dow and whispers I have cancer and that he's sorry. What is this for real did I just hear what I think he said and my sister weeping with me sad as she was confirmed he said cancer. O boy life gets better and better so the next 5 days I spent in hospital tube in my chest draining fluiexcessive fluid from around my heart. Wow I kept thinking to my self how are we gonna do this I have to have time to prepare make right choices I kept actively in my heart and soul I rediscovered my faith. I grew up as a Christian baptized at the age of 8 then I grew up over the years I thought I knew how precious life was sad thing is we never acknowledge until you hear you have something wrong with you. Have done seven treatments and two to go woo hoo; lots of stress trying to work pay your debts while new ones mount up I don't have to have anything go fancy places just wish for me and Mark to be able to relax enjoying our time that's it but reality is debts are rising I just want to clear these debts and enjoy time . My story continues does anyone know if its possible for any help finances?
