My "box of chocolates"

Postby dag1450 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 9:19 pm

Well....I'm 47 and I have loved every one of the chocolates I have picked out! But...A few months ago I bit into the one with the mystery jelly..... :(
This past May my wife was diagnosed with an 8 mm brain tumor. While kinda small....it's in a part of the brain that it can't fit without doing permanent damage. So.... after hitting this head on ( lol) we did a lot of praying ... and shopping around for a fix. We found an older surgeon in Boston who wrote the book on this kind of tumor. At first I was like...no way r we going to pick the guy in Boston....but as time went by Boston seemed like the best option for her.
So on 8/5 we will head north to Brigham and women's hospital.... for surgery on 8/7. My wife and I are asking the Lord for a perfect outcome.....but only he knows what's on the other side.
So....I'm just hoping my very next chocolate has some carmel. :oops:
I know this is a tractor website and this really don't belong here...... but I just wanted to share my situation.
Thanks Dave

Dave thoughts and prayers to your wife. Done a lot of research on cancer stuff. Change her immediately to a plant-based whole food diet. I know it’s hard but lots of good stories of recovery.

Thanks Todd and Joe!

Dave, prayers sent for you and your wife! I know you also have been suffering some pain recently of your own, so it makes it even harder. Keep praying, keep your faith!

I'll pray for your wife and you too. In addition to being strong for your wife, make sure you get some "decompress" time for yourself too. You need to be around both right now and as she recovers.

My wife is a breast cancer survivor ( over 6 years now ) and I know first hand how helpless you can feel with what is going on.

Thanks again guys for your thoughts and prayers. Well...as I already mentioned the surgeon called last week and said there was a schedule conflict bla bla bla.....and now if we go to their next available....wife could miss a few or more of our 2 oldest varsity football games. So.... since it is elective surgery we will postpone till after the main season... end of October. I know it makes it sound like not a big deal. But it is a very slow growing tumor....so there is no lights and sirens urgency.
Thanks again and will keep you posted

Jeff, absolutely fabulous news about your wife!

Dave, hang in there. Don't dwell on it, put it all on hold until October shows up. Enjoy quality time with the family, and take care of yourself! Your wife will need you to be "all the dag you can be"!

It’s hard to think cancer can have good news unless it’s gone but it sounds like considering the circumstances you got good news.
