Let’s get ready to rummmmble…..

I’m back in the fight. 🥊 I did my first round of the new chemo last week. It ended up being four days of infusions, and I was definitely out for the count through the week and weekend, BUT I tolerated these new drugs far better then last from a nausea standpoint. I had left…

….You make lemonade

In our case, the lemonade was a two week road trip to Florida. I’ve always wanted to take the kids to Disney, and Universal (Wizarding World of Harry Potter to be exact) so after the scan results came in we made a quick decision to pack the van, as I knew more treatment or surgery…

When life gives you lemons….

A few days after my last scan Justin came home mid-day.  I knew what it meant immediately.  The doctor had called him, and told him the results of my scan.  I was not clear of cancer.  I have a tumour on my liver and nodules in my lungs. My world stopped momentarily.  The current status…

I’ve got one hand in my pocket….

I’m up and eating with the family again ❤️ so happy. For a change, we had 90’s pop playing in the background instead of Sinatra and a song I had listened to a million times in my youth resonated in a new way. If you came of age in the 90’s it will be a…

Surgery Update

Just wanted to update everyone that surgery went well and that our girl ❤️ is in recovery as we speak. Surgery was just over 2 hours and our Dr. said she did great. Most likely will be in the hospital until Monday/Tuesday and then we can hopefully bring her home. Your support has been so appreciated….

The summit?

I liken the last six months to climbing a mountain. And this surgery and recovery are the last bit I need to get to the peak. While getting back down won’t be easy, the hardest is behind me for now. I had many people tell me the emotional and mental part would be tougher than…

#worldcancerday

My social media feeds have alerted me that today is world cancer day. I’m not entirely sure what that means–raising awareness of cancer? Fundraising? It’s a disease that reaches into everyone’s life in some way or another- no one remains unscathed. It’s hard to believe that it’s something that needs awareness. But until there is…

What comes next?

I haven’t written in a while, mainly because I haven’t had much to say! I’ve had no real news or updates from a medical perspective and I’ve been spending the majority of my time resting and watching Netflix, so other than reviews on shows I haven’t had a whole lot to share! Update on Appointment…

Welcome 2019 + treatment update

I had a good day yesterday. Honestly, probably my first good day since November. I finally felt “ok”. Hopefully a glimpse of things to come….What 2019 has in store for me. So, a lot of unknowns have been cleared up these last couple weeks as far as the treatment plan goes. Based on my reaction…

Running The Gauntlet

Yes…this is what I often use to describe my wife’s last several weeks…or let’s just say couple of months.  Not. Much. Fun. At all.  It’s really hard to accurately describe and even harder to comprehend. I’ll just say love has no boundaries and I’m all in, behind my star player the whole way. As I…
