I don't anymore. But, when she was young I did. I couldn't even watch or donate money to the St Jude's telethon because I was terrified i'd one day BE one of those moms on the telethon. The mom who knows all the nurses by name.

My daughter was hospitalized occasionally for health problems. Twice in ICU. I was so afraid that instead of three days, it would be my new life all the time, every day. I would stand in the doorway of her room, and watch the hustle in the hallways, and tried to imagine doing this every day, for years.

I always thought "Why NOT me... why only other people... it can happen to us too".

I'm over it now, but it took about 15 years.

Even when my sons's docs were very clearly looking for leukemia, they still never used the word out loud to me (because they knew me and Google are pretty close friends...). I'm sorry you are so stressed!
i most def do not see that doctor anymore :-! that was ( supposed to be )just a one time visit while we were in NC and she did apologize after the 2nd cbc and she knows how badly she upset me i cried on the phone with her but she said she "had to" tell me that just in case :/
