It has been an emotional roller coaster for us since Jason’s diagnosis.
There has been so much “hurry up and wait”. We were faced with appointment after appointment. Specialists. Tests. Multiple times of going for blood work. Plus, time and money for overpriced and limited pay parking while we waited for all of the above. Everything goes really fast and then we are left feeling like we have been put on hold. Waiting to hear from the doctor and the specialist, and then waiting on the results from all the tests.
In case you missed it as we realized we only shared over on Instagram, but we did get the results on Jason’s scans and tests. We were left waiting for his next specialist appointment to hear what was deduced from everything. It seems we are learning how to be more patient through all of this. We have been rejoicing because we received the best possible news. Jason’s cancer is localized to the tumor. HALLELUJAH!
WE DO ASK FOR YOUR CONTINUED THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
Most days we’re doing really well emotionally. We know there really is nothing we can do in this situation, it truly is out of our hands. Which is why we are handing it all over to God in prayer too. We were listening to the radio the other day and the person that was talking mentioned how often when you enter into a hard time in life the first thing we tend to ask is “Why?” The person then went on to talk about how really we should be saying “Alright God, I can trust you. You’re not going to be far from us right?”
More recently as the surgery date gets closer, our emotions have been riding high and deviating all over the place. Before the results that the cancer is localized, thoughts have drifted to the worse possible scenario and fear consumed us. In those moments anxiety took over. We didn’t want to be thinking about the worst possible situation. In those times we have been so thankful for the love and support of those around us. Many taking a moment to send a message checking in on us, popping by to drop off a meal or a coffee. On Sunday, our church took time to pray for Jason, the surgery, and for our whole family. That brought a lot of comfort right when we need it most.
Jason’s surgery is this week. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Wisdom for the medical staff during the surgery and for Jason’s healing afterwards. Thank you everyone for all your love and continued support.
