Friends, at this time it’s so difficult for me to keep up with updates regarding my husband’s cancer. Please find me on Instagram @vivjoywriter for updates or you can follow me on Facebook. Just email me for more info. I love you all and continue to pray for you. ❤
My husband never gets sick, he never gets colds, flus, or anything. My kids and I get sick and cough all over our small house but Mark……he never gets sick!
After 4 and 1/2 hours of a diagnostic brain biopsy we have the dreaded diagnosis. Glioblastoma. Until just recently I couldn’t even pronounce the word and now it’s all I think about. This aggressive cancer is mean and nasty with a grim outlook due to high mortality rates. The prognosis for my beloved is not what anyone can handle hearing. 12 months. That’s all we’ve been given which is more generous than the 6 month life expectancy they gave him if we’d chosen to not pursue treatments.
So we fight. My hubby is a fighter and I am too. We’re not going down without one and we’re certainly not giving up. Yes, glioblastoma is a hard reality but our days aren’t numbered by doctors. God numbers our days. God knows the outcome. God is in control.
Since writing the above there are some changes…..
We’ve made a decision to get another opinion at Duke in NC. Please pray for us! The team at Duke specialises in brain tumors and are known nationwide for their advancements in brain tumor research. We are at peace knowing God is leading us there. And we continue to hope.❤
