I cant believe I am typing this. I tried earlier. And I couldnt. I really just couldn’t believe it. But now I’ve pinched myself mutliple times and I’m definitely (and unfortunately) not dreaming.
Nick’s doctors told us today, after his MRI and a subsequent biopsy, that his cancer is back in full force.
We will be heading home tomorrow and will get more information early next week. But, more than likely, we will be doing a three month long triple-threat intravenous chemo regimen to try and shrink the current mucous/tumors so that they can do surgery to remove them. Mostly though, it seems like they want to get chemo started right away. Sounds like it could be as early as next week.
There were lots of tears and a little bit of anger today but we’ve also been able to smile! (And we encourage you to do the same.) Nick has already cracked a few jokes (yup, still the same ole Nick) and we’ve had a couple good laughs! We’ve even had a couple of speechless moments considering our little baby and the miraculous timing!!!! We couldn’t do this last year and we aren’t sure when the next time we will be “allowed” to try to have kids is – so this baby is just a MIRACLE!
WE ARE HOLDING ON TO TRUTH and know that everything is in God’s hands. And, we are fully planning on kicking cancer’s butt… AGAIN!!
Anyway, gotta keep this short for now. I am just past exhaustion and need some rest. But, before I close out…. We wanted to say that we REALLY appreciate all of your prayers over the last year and ask that you please keep them up because we will definitely need them!
Thanks so much everyone! Hug your loved ones extra long tonight!
