Just got word from the doctor on my FISH test results and he said that he was happy to inform me that it showed 13q deletion which is what he was hoping for as it meant the prognosis. He went on to say that he was even less concerned and wouldn't need to see me for 6 months
So the questions I asked him was about should I be on any special form of diet, could I continue on working on losing weight and was there anything I should be looking for regarding my immune system
His answers were vague but said I could continue on my journey of a healthy life style and getting to a healthy weight.
I am thrilled and want to move on and move ahead with my journey in creating a better me
I have gone through life dissappointmenta, I have Looked at things I should have, could have, would have done and I have been frustrated? Well maybe, just maybe i just needed a new perspective, just needed to take a step or two and look at it from another angle.
Today on my walk I was thinking and pondering and as I looked at the muddy creek I thought of the many times My waters have been muddy by taking on too much, wanting too much, keeping myself so busy that life seemed to just pass by. When I walked a few steps and peered at the creek I saw the most beautiful reflection of the sky! Same muddy creek just a different perspective! See photo I posted!
I have slowed down in 2016 and I am trying to live my life more mindful, joyful, and taking the time to appreciate what I have and finding contentment. I began this journey January 1st and I am blessed that I did because it helped me the last month to put MY life into perspective after my diagnosis.
A new perspective is good for the soul!!!! I can honestly say that no matter how much time I have on this earth I will put on my new rose colored glasses. I have only one shot at this life and I am going to fight for the joy in each new day!
Praying for each and everyone of you!
