On Monday, Dave had a colonoscopy. He had been having some issues for a while and his doctor had been running a bunch of tests to figure out what was going on.
Crohns’ disease was ruled out, Celiac was ruled out, he cut down on caffeine, etc etc. A prescription for something or another seemed to help a bit, but not enough.
So the colonoscopy. And about 20 tissue samples taken for biopsy.
Today we got the results, and it is cancer.
that is not a word I ever wanted to hear in conjunction with my husband.
And I am really angry. And scared. And sad. And overwhelmed.
And thankful, for in the last 12 hours the outpouring of love, from Wisconsin, to Minnesota, to Alaska has been amazing.
And I tell you, I need it right now.
This move has already been hard for me. I am so torn, between those I love here, and those I love in Alaska. So yesterday, when the movers drove away with all our stuff packed into a big truck, I cried.
To have this news, CANCER, come just a few short hours later, it is just too much.
And yet, I know, God is in control. And I need to trust. And I am trying.
Pray. for peace, healing, my faith.
Pray. for my kids, Dave’s folks, my folks.
