For the record...

First of all, I'd just like to say that this isn't your
average cancer story. I'm not looking for sympathy or guilt,
but people read stories like My Sister's Keeper and get the
wrong idea about the experience. Then again, you can never
really know what's going to happen. My life for the past year
has NOT been what I expected. I didn't expect my dad to get
diagnosed with stomach cancer. I didn't expect him to be
stuck in the hospital for a month after having his stomach
removed thanks to all of the complications (blood clots,
hospital pneumonia, things of that nature). I didn't expect
him to miss my middle school graduation or my solo in
graduation chorus (a select group of about 30 students from a
350 person grade) because he was still too weak to leave the
house. I didn't expect him to puke after eating one too many
bites of food all summer. And I certainly didn't expect him
to still be experiencing all of the side effects of chemo,
radiation, and his surgery after he was officially declared
cancer free and stopped needed his treatments. But he did. He
did all of these things. I know it wasn't his fault, but
that's not the point. The point is, my life has been a whole
host of complications and surprises ever since that day in
late January of 2009. Do you wanna know how I found out my
dad had cancer? He was driving me home from a 3 hour dance
class and he just blurted it out. He had to pull over because
we were both crying. Everyone kept telling me that everything
would be okay, but I knew that wasn't true. I knew that
everything was going to be different, so I figured, why not
help other people to understand as well?
