Quilt With Us

Hi all. Life has taken quite a turn. What we thought was dementia turned out to be GBM (glioblastoma) tumors I. His brain. If you can choose what type of a tumor to have, this is NOT it. He has surgery on Thursday. They could get 70% of the front lobal tumor, the other was inoperable. He will get chemo and radiation which will give us more, and better time, for several months. 

It has been quite a rollercoaster taking it all in, but God has given us such comfort and peace. We are enjoying the gift of each day God is blessing us with.

His 70th party Sept. 1 is still a go, per the surgeon. 

I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future.

We have so many praying for, helping, supporting us. The Ranch has us on a 6 month medical leave. We are feeling very blessed.

Yes, same cancer, Janet.

Is this same cancer that John McCain has?  I'm so sorry that you both have to go through this ordeal and hope he has more good days than bad ones.

I am so sorry for this sad news.  Tears are rolling, but I am so happy that you are enjoying each day as a blessing.  I hope and pray that he handles the radiation and chemo well.
