Preparing For Battle

Our family is preparing for a great battle again.  Mike was diagnosed with Stage 2 Esophageal Cancer on April 26.

We have fought a great battle before and lost.

Mike begins treatment next week.  An intense regimen that will likely kick his ass and rock our world.  He has chemo once a week and radiation five days a week for a 5 weeks.  All of his treatment is 2 hours away… so that means traveling FOUR hours every day. Mike then has a month off and then he will have surgery to remove the tumor that has taken up residence in his body and is causing him immense pain.

The difference between this battle and Katy’s battle is we are TIRED. We were just, just navigating our way through our new normal, maybe making a little ground and bam! We were knocked off our axis once again.  I honestly don’t know how we will survive this battle.  I am tired.  Mike is tired. Patrick is worried.

I know that once again we will depend on the love of our friends and family to help get us through the next few months.  Thank you for all the love and prayers.
