Cancer. Cancer is our new reality. Our simple life is gone. Our child has cancer. Leukemia, to be specific. Tyler has leukemia. There. I said it and didn't even cry that time. I said it without breaking down and sobbing. Our perfect, beautiful, happy little boy has leukemia. Our lives will forever be changed. I know more about leukemia today that I ever thought possible. And yet, this is just the beginning. We've only just scratched the surface. There are still many, many unknowns. The biggest unknown of all is why. Why did this happen? Why did this sweet, innocent child develop this horrible disease? Why?
And so it begins. This new reality. This horrible, awful, wish-it-were-a-dream reality. So much for not sobbing.
