I'm Still Here...

I'm still here. It's funny how things can change so quickly overnight and how that makes your priorities change as well.

In early February my DH was diagnosed with lymphoma. We wanted a second opinion so we quickly made arrangements for him to be seen at M D Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston. We spent a week there. He had so many tests done and the original diagnosis was correct. He had his first chemo treatment there that week. He went back by himself 3 weeks later for treatment #2, and had #3 here. We leave in the morning to head back to Houston for re-testing to see what progress has been made and for treatment #4.

I'm still stitching when I can. So much of my time has been taken up with coordinating appointments between Houston and here, keeping the medications straight, making nutritious meals, working full time, and just doing everything around the house that I can so he won't have to. He is tired, as expected. We did go to 3 fun concerts recently, though. We saw Elton John/Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Third Day.

So, if you read this, keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we journey to Houston this week. We are hoping to hear some good news! My heart is full of hope that we will!
