Since June our lives have been in a small tornado of whirls here and there. Mostly we have been to various doctors offices to spend our days with appointments.
It took from June till December for hubby to get cleared for a double hernia operation and a blockage in the private area. Would have been November but he took ibuprofen not knowing that it is the same as aspirin. So December it was, just a few days prior to Christmas.
He sat on ice packs and followed the doctor’s orders and was semi mending fine. On to next doctor.
In January he had part of the inside of his mouth removed by the lower lip and chin area. A few stitches that he called a caterpillar on the top of his lip and we were told that we were doing good. It had been pre-cancer cells and that it was good that he had come in to have it done.
The day that we went to have his stitches removed it felt like the world had just been swirled around in a circle for us.
It was the first time I have ever seen tears come to my husbands eyes in a doctor’s office as they called me into the exam room.
The doctor told us that the results showed sun or radiation damage and that he was looking at stage 3 cancer.
Now the appointments are being made to travel on a regular basis to Nashville TN where we will be seeing specialists at Vanderbilt Hospital.
I have the crying down to just in my sleep now so life is better.
Where we go from here is totally in Gods hands and lots of prayers. The doctors there are some of the best in the nation.
Trying to blog or do anything right now is an effort. I know that I must push on and be strong.
I am grateful for wonderful and comforting friends who are supportive through this and we both have wonderful family who are with us through all of it.
With time and prayer we will concur this and life will get better. I have the faith.
Love your spouse each day and appreciate that they are here.
Do not take any form of aspirin or ibuprofen if you are due to have surgery for a month prior.
Smile and enjoy what life gives you.
Till our next appointment,
