I haven't been posting like I should - I guess I just don't know what to say. I could never have imagined that things would be the way they are right now. It has been a tough couple of months for all of us. Terry is doing really well. I know he has went through so much pain over the last few weeks. Just to get you up to speed on where we are right now -
Terry had his second surgery last Tuesday. Since they found a small amount of cancer cells in one of his lymph nodes, they have determined that it is Stage 3 cancer and they removed all of his lymph nodes on the right side. The doctor feels this will help prevent the cancer from moving any further. They have also decided to administer chemotherapy. The first round will be pretty intense, he will receive treatments 5 days a week for 1 month. After that, he will be able to give himself the injections at home for up to 1 year. We are hearing a variety of symptoms that he may experience with the chemo. It just depends on the person.
I know you all are praying - I can feel it. When I start to get really down, I feel this arm of encouragement wrap around me - and I press on. I have finally moved out of the place of asking why - and instead am looking to the future. I know that some day, we will look back on all of this and see how much we have grown and changed through this experience.
God is good - all the time.
