Hi Rebecca - Thank you for this beautiful description of what a person goes through when they learn they have a serious health condition. Whether one has heart disease or cancer or any other condition that creates a sense of loss, there's going to be a transition period before life becomes a "new normal.' I can relate to everything you've said, and would just add that it's also important to realize that the stages may not come in a particular order, or in a straight progression, and some stages occur more than once. What matters is to continue on the journey and head toward healing in one's own time. Thank you for sharing this with us. Take care, Pat
