Those of you who know me well know that I was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2016. The treatment was not successful in eradicating the cancer and I'm back to a plan of surgery, radiation, and chemo or immunotherapy. Last month I had successful surgery in which they removed 50% of the tumor that sits on my optic nerve and carotid artery. On October 2nd, I'll begin my next course of radiation and shortly after I'll start chemotherapy or immunotherapy. Unfortunately I'm unable to work through all of this. I've been off work for 1 month and used my paid time off. Some amazing coworkers have donate their paid time off but I don't know how long that will last.
Unfortunately, Ashley also has impending medical bills due to a surgery scheduled for October 9th. They will remove and biopsy a mass that a doctor found a few weeks ago. We're praying the biopsy will be negative and expect that it will be.
So far things are going very well with my treatment but last week my radiation oncologist told me there is a significant possibility I'll lose vision in my left eye. It's a scary thought but we're trusting in God's sovereignty through this. Please pray that we continue to trust God, my vision is spared, and Ashley's biopsy is negative.
Since not everyone uses Facebook, Ashley and I will use this page to update everyone on our conditions and progress.
