Shuffle the cards again. I don’t like this hand you’ve dealt!

The past we tread can be smooth as flagstone yet sometimes we stumble along pebbles and stones on the road. Now I’ve run into a hurdle big as a boulder. The results of a test came back and this time it’s not a winner. I hear the doctor say, “You have multiple myeloma,” and look around to see whom he’s speaking. Words like bone marrow, treatable, and drugs hang in the small room.

“Maybe the test is wrong. He shakes his head. “Definitive.”

Another glitch just when I thought it was safe to go into the water.

I write books about fictional women who survive and thrive. So will I.
