Why has our life has been busy the past six weeks? Well, blame it on my hubby! Early March he told me he had a "lump" in his groin and, also, that he's had it for over a year! Oh, and it was the size of a golf ball! No kidding! It was that big!
WHAT! Needless to say, I freaked out, did my normal "why wouldn't you tell me or the doctor(s)", etc. So I finally got him to go to the doctor and after many scans, biopsy, etc. we got the diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. That was a scary time for sure...so about a week ago, after meeting with the Oncologist, Bob had a PET scan to rule out whether the cancer had spread to other organs. We got the results today that his cancer is in Stage 1 and he just needs radiation! I'm not using the word "just" lightly..he still has to go through radiation but it could be more treatment(s), including chemo, radiation and other immuno type therapy. We are so thankful for this diagnosis as in many cases it can be so much worse!
We're meeting with the radiologist and their group the 1st week in May so we'll know how many weeks/treatments Bob will need. We'll get through this journey together and are so lucky to have had so many prayers from family and friends! Keep 'em coming!!!
