So J says to me today, “Shoulder pain can be a sign of lung cancer.” Casual-like. Her father had shoulder pain when his lung cancer was diagnosed at age 92. Great.
So my mind has been nuts for the last 12 hours or so. The pain has changed, moved to other parts of my back and arm. I don’t know what it means. It is crazy. I’m calling the Doctor in the morning. I would go to bed but J decided to work on the taxes in bed.i could just scream.
We did go to the 5:00 PM Mass. I’m glad we did. I did feel the love of Christ tonight. The Passion story is so intense. It is a short course in human behavior and depravity. And I needed to hear it.
I’m so sorry your shoulder has been giving you so much trouble! I just googled “lung cancer and shoulder pain,” so of course I know all about it now (haha, just kidding) But it was interesting. (I know, easy for me to say!) But it did say don’t panic, so that was good. I’m glad you’re making an appointment with your doctor! Keep us posted!!
Thanks. I ran into a Doctor friend from church at the grocer’s today. He said not to worry (too much) and concurred about getting it checked out. He cheerily added, “I’ve had cancer 3 times.” So I’m pretty OK right now.
