March 12th, I went in for a CT scan of my lungs to check for restrictive lung disease. My CT scan appointment was 7:30am, I was done and home by 8:30am. While the scan was happening and immediately afterward, I had a weird feeling in my gut. I knew that something was not right, by the time noon rolled around, I was getting calls from my pulmonologist's office, they needed to see me ASAP. My appointment was for the next morning in Dubois at 8:45am. That monday, the 12th, was a day from literal hell. I cried nearly all day long, to the point where my eyes were swollen and puffy, and I just couldnt stop crying. I knew there was no reason why I would have to go in so soon whenever I had a follow up appointment for two weeks later, without it being something awful. Mom and dad both took time off work the next day to come with me. My pulmonologist said "We found something that we weren't expecting, you have enlarged lymph nodes in your chest and abdomen, some are twice the size of normal and a few are triple. This is when we start suspecting lymphoma." That was all I needed to send me down a rabbit hole of research and joining support groups to see exactly what I would be expecting if this was actually lymphoma. March 22nd, I was back at the hospital at 7:30am, preparing to have a Bronchoscopy and biopsy done of my lymph nodes, this is the first time I have ever had an IV and also my first time having anesthesia and being put to sleep. *Yikes!* Follow up appointment is March 29th. You mean, after a week and a half of already NOT knowing what my body is doing, I have to wait another week?! Shortest AND longest week of my life, I tried to keep myself occupied, but whenever I slept at night, I had dreams about the follow up appointment and what it would entail. Safe to say, I didn't sleep very well. Thursday, March 29th, I heard the words "There are no signs of cancer." Although it was good news for me, Its not good news for everyone, which is why I want to give back. If everyone who prayed for me could even donate $1.00 to the cause, I believe that we could give a decent amount to The Leukemia and Lymphoma society. I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing it for Dylan Vensel, Adam Bartley, JD Burk, and all of the amazing people that are out there fighting ANYTHING. Please consider donating to this cause!
