These are my parents. They mean everything to me!
I want to tell you a little bit about my mom… I am sure most of you have already heard, but for those of you who don’t know what’s going on, please let me fill you in. I am sorry in advance for the super long post.
Mom has been in and out of the hospital a lot this year. It started with Trigeminal Neuralgia last year. This year (and probably some last year) she started having some pains in her legs. We went to several neurologists and after several trips and stays in the hospital we find out she has a disease called Plexopathy. It’s not 100% treatable, but you can help the pain with steroids. Well, a few months ago she started noticing pain in the opposite leg and numbness. So, we went back into the hospital right before the wedding (she was able to be at the wedding) and after several more tests and a few biopsies the doctors determined she has Central Nervous System Lymphoma. We were all pretty prepared for this, but it was still a shock (and still is when I think about it). Mom’s still in the hospital right now. She has the best doctors possible, and they are all working together to find the best treatment plan. She was given steroids the other day, so the pain level has dropped a bit.
So that’s where we are. We all want to thank everyone for the crazy amounts of prayer during all of this.. We still need it! Our God is bigger than any form of cancer.. He’s got all of us in His hands, there is no reason to be afraid of this. Love you all!
"I want you forever, forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We’ll grow old together, and always remember
Whether happy or sad or whatever
We’ll still love each other, forever and always”
Two years down, forever to go. I love you, goober! I can’t wait to spend forever and always together.
