My children were supportive

I got a lot of family support and a lot of friends. And since I'm a single parent and I'm not married either. My daughter got very emotional because she's not in the state and she wanted to be with me. My son, he's 22, and he was like kind of sad. But I had to kind of set the mood for them and I said "Well, we can't worry about it. It's going to be all right and we need to do what we need to do." And they met the doctors and went on a couple of appointments. I felt pretty positive, because everybody was so nice, you know, that energy just comes off. So you know you have positive feelings, so I was pretty much okay with it.
