    Oh No (Diagnosed): I went to see my pulmonolpgist because my breathing just wasn't very good
    I have asthma and COPD So I thought different meds... Being told there is
    A possibility of lung cancer.... WOW ... Wasn't expecting that . By the way I
    Not a smoker! Was sent that day for CAT SCAN.
    Sure enough dr didn't like how it looked next step bronchoscopic with biopsy
    Next day results for sure CANCER ...
    So many things going through my mind , can't be real has to be a mistake right
    Wrong .... It was real no mistake You have cancer.
    Here it is Nov 2011 before the holidays and my birthday
    Do I tell the kids now or wait until after the holidays ... Well my choice
    Was made by my youngest son who is 31. He was there with Dad when
    Biopsy was done was there when dr informed us of results
    He said Mama. We all love you and will be with you through all of this
    The other 3 have to know ... So at Thanksgiving when all 4 kids
    And spouses were there I told them all I had something I needed to
    Tell them all , while we are all together, so I gained
    My composure and just told them ,,, they took it better than
    I had thought they would . Of course many question that I can't
    Answer yet but will soon as I can .
    Next step PET SCAN on Dec 8 2011. Found out what kind and stage
    And treatment plan. So this is how my story began on OH NO. !!!!
    And continues ..... I will survive this ... Just a minor set back,,,,
