33489174_1538715331267337_r.jpegFor the past year my husband has complained of stomach pain and was treated for acid reflux due to his age. About 3weeks ago he started complaining of a bloated feeling that progressively got worse over time. Dennis went to his regular doc again to check in and they said same thing acid reflux, about 24 hours later he was in such discomfort that he went to urgent care in which after waiting they said we cant do anything for you and need you to go to the hospital for further testing. Dennis is not the kind of person to wait for a long time on things kind of hard headed (as most men are) lol but he insisted something was wrong and stayed waiting in the hospital. After being taken back all test come back ok they wanted to look at his pancreas via a cat scan. During the cat scan they say that his pancreas looked fine but they spotted something else ( heart sank) that was important and they wanted to look further into it. He got admitted and underwent several days of procedures and an endless waiting games, when the results came back our biggest fear had been confirmed Dennis was diagnosed with cancer. This was a total shock for us as it would be for anyone and even worse that we couldn't get any answers on what happens next or really anything until biopsy came back which would tell us what direction of treatment to go in and more information about the cancer it self. After 2 stomach fluid drainings a biopsy of the lymph nodes and surgery last night he was exhausted , not to mention its everything we can do to hold our life on the outside together. We get more results and fears confirmed again we will not be able to complete treatment from home because they do not want this getting to his brain. So today he will have a port put into his chest and a bone marrow biopsy and will go straight into chemo treatment as of Saturday and does not get to leave the hospital and will come back for more chemo every three weeks and the type of chemo he will be receiving is administered over a four day period so he will be in the hospital for 4 to 5 days every 3 weeks and to the doctor every Tuesday and Thursday in-between. I have tried to hold everything together and be a rock through all of this and big shout out to all of our help and support. I have been back and forth a few times a day in between procedures to take care of our animals and other household duties and kids etc... His boss has done a wonderful job of taking good care of him but he will be out of work for about a year is what the doctor is thinking. As you all know this is extremely stressful on us all. Unfortunately bills continue to come and hospital bills are only beginning. Any donations to help us make this journey down recovery lane would be a true blessing and so appreciated. Not one of you go unnoticed we appreciate any help during this journey and god bless you!!!  I am trying to raise money to help our family through all of this absolutely anything in any way of support is appreciate from a donation to a prayer for our family to sharing Dennis story or just a simple phone call to make us laugh and lift our spirits we cant thank you enough for your support during this fight but I know with all my soul he will make it through this and I have faith he will fight hard and it will be hard but I know with our HUGE support team we will beat some cancer BOOTY!!!!!!!! #TeamDennisRay #BeatCancerBooty #WilliamsRecoveryRoad
