Large B-cell lymphoma, a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Oh, the irony. I wrote a research paper on NHL last fall.

So, here it is: I have cancer. I’m not sure what to think, just seem to be fluxuating between emotional and really calm. The doctor was calm, so that helped. I wasn’t expecting his call until next week and though I was somewhat prepared for the news, I felt strange. It was a “this thing is in my body?” feeling.

I see the oncologist in October and will have some scans done before we decide on a treatment. If anyone knows anything about this form of NHL, please feel free to share.
