This call comes 3 days before he was supposed to start radiation. Radiation is our last step. Radiation has been the down hill slide we were waiting for on what has been months of an uphill climb. So what now? We aren't starting radiation tomorrow, we are scheduling surgery. It sounds like a rather simple procedure from the short explanation we got, but we will know more tomorrow. During surgery the Dr. will remove the lymph node, and it will be biopsied to see if it is in fact cancerous or not. If it is not cancerous all we have done is delayed radiation a bit. Really no big deal. If it is cancerous we are looking at a month long stay in the hospital for Jeremy where he will receive, as the Dr. put it, "the worst chemo of your life." Sounds horrible doesn't it?! I can't tell you how much we both don't want that to be the answer we hear.
So dear family and friends, again we ask you to be thinking of us this coming week! I know this is nothing new to you guys. Jeremy and I discuss daily (honestly it is daily) how amazing our family and friends are! We both know this road could have been much worse had we not had all the love and support of such fantastic people. We love you all and someday hope we can better express how grateful we are to have you all in our lives!
A sneak peak at this weekends adventure!
