So if you've been on Twitter anytime in the last two weeks or so (and you follow me), you may have seen some of my tweets about something not so fun going on in my life. I've been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, though they still are not exactly sure what specifically it is that I have. I'm in the middle of going through a bunch of testing to figure it out. I'll hopefully know for sure next Friday, Oct 4 when I see my doctor again for results. But one thing is for sure: I will need chemotherapy. They just need to figure out how much and for how long.
I am pretty scared regarding what's coming up in the next few months, but I've already gotten a bunch of support on Twitter from the YA community and from my friends and co-workers that really boosts my spirit. I am very positive about this whole thing, and it is a very treatable cancer, so there's nothing too bad going on (i.e. I'm like 99% sure I won't die).
I will keep all of you posted on my Facebook (personal one, if you're friends with me) and Twitter as I go through this. If any of you can help, I've added a Paypal donation button if you want to help out with my mounting medical bills, other bills and getting the new Cher and Lady Gaga CDs.
No one probably cares about this blog after that news, but I have a bunch of scheduled posts through the beginning of December, with more being added before chemo even starts so you'll still get to read reviews and maybe an interview here and there.
If there are any questions, leave them in the comments and I'll get around to them when I can. Hopefully over the next few days.
