It's so very hard to use yourself as an example of what smoking can do to your health, I'm so sorry you have to go through this.
Thank you for sharing. Your post is indeed a slap of reality that smoking harms.
One thing I did learn is that there is a power that works and that's faith and prayer. My thoughts are prayers are with you at this difficult time.
I have a friend who survived lung cancer. She's as strong now as she ever was.
Praying for a full recovery (((((Donna))))).
