Update on Hubby

We saw hubby's oncologist today and he went over the CAT scan with us again. It was much worse than we realized and we thought it was pretty bad the first time on the phone! But then he gave us some different options. One being the option that hubby wanted and that is to go down to Baltimore to Johns Hopkins to see a colon cancer specialist. We go on Monday!! The staff and nurses in at hubby's oncologist are so awesome. They came out to hug us, to pray with us and to just give moral support and to let us know that they weren't giving up. It was so emotional for me and I think even for hubby. The little girl that does the appointment set ups and medical records gathering was awesome as well. I can't believe she got us in on Monday. But Monday afternoon it is. Hubby and I are excited about meeting the new doctor. We have already looked at her picture on the hospital's site and read about her. She sounds amazing. The next thing, which we are taking as a sign from God, is that it was raining this afternoon and just a bit ago a bright rainbow came out right in front of our house, it was like it was for us! Like God didn't want us to miss it and we didn't! So we are both renewed with hope in this next journey. We will see how it all plays out and I will be taking you guys along with us whatever the outcome. So until next the next update....Have a Happy Blessed Easter Everyone!! And thanks so much for all your support, cards and prayers, they have really helped keep our spirits up through all this!!! Crafty hugs, Brenda

I am so hopeful for you and thankful there are some more options to try. It's wonderful she got you in so soon. What a great sign with the rainbow! We'll be with you all the way. Sending continued prayers.

Thanks for the update Brenda. Years ago while traveling home from a trip, I was worrying myself sick over upcoming surgery, when a rainbow appeared out of nowhere, directly over us. I took it as a positive sign, and everything turned around from the moment I spotted it, so I'm taking that rainbow you saw as a good sign too! Best of everything to you both - travel safe and I'll hope for a positive outcome!

Vickie said...

HUGGS my friend.

Like Carol, said in a comment above mine... I had a rainbow experience too. seeing that rainbow turned out to be God's promise to me that everything was going to turn out okay. (And it did!)

Hey Brenda. I'm hoping you have a laptop or an iPad that you've brought along to keep up with things while you're in Baltimore. I was sorry to hear of DH's illness. You are both on my prayer list. Having worked in surgery a few years back, I know part of what's happening to him. Today's medicine and treatments are so much more advanced than they were even from 10 years ago. I will put my confidence in God. He sent you a rainbow! Big hugs to you. And if you need to chat, shoot me an email and I'll send you my phone number. I've got broad shoulders. Bev

MaryH said...

Oh my dear! I'm behind in visiting, but I saw this & your other update, so I wanted to read these first. Yes, I think the rainbow (and the fast appointment) was a blessed sign. I'm so happy that he's scheduled promptly to see this specialist. And praying for some other options that can be helpful. Off to read the later post. Big hugs. MM

cm said...

This appointment was 'meant to be', my friend, and I firmly believe that the signs are all positive! An accomplished expert has been delivered to you; I know she'll provide you with the steps that need to be taken, as well as the guidance and support to help your husband and you on the next phase of the journey. I'm praying that she *is* the answer!
