Just a normal Monday night

Heard the doctor’s voice as I answered the phone

I’m so sorry to have to tell you this

My husband took the phone

Collapsed to the floor in disbelief

Endless tears

All the air sucked out of me

Anger at God

Body wracking sobs

Strong arms wrapped around me

My husband’s voice telling me we would face it together

Felt my sanity slipping away

All sense of time disappeared

Fear beyond anything else ever experienced in my life

Losing control of my life and everything in it

Melting into my husband’s arms and letting him take care of me

The edge of a breakdown

Darkness prevailing

My life changed forever
