My hubby - need prayers..
Almost 2 weeks ago, we found out that my hubby has a mass in his neck that is cancerous. Due to the type of cancer that it is, they knew this was not the main mass. Hubby was sent for a body scan, which took close to a week to get read.
After getting the diagnosis, I go on the computer & started doing research on where he should get treatment; and I'm pretty confident that we've picked the right place. After what happened with my dad, I do not want to waste time with my husband.
Waiting for the body scan to get read was hell. We knew this type could be in any of his organs; needless to say, we've both been extremely stressed/worried. When I hear cancer, it brings such fear; I don't know many people that have actually fought and won. If the cancer doesn't get you, the treatment does.
We saw the ENT department head in Philadelphia Wednesday. He said the main source is the right tonsil; so we set up surgery on the 22nd. They will remove both the mass & tonsil, do pathology as well as check lymph nodes. They will also place a feeding tube because he's probably going to need it during treatment.
We don't know much more until surgery & when the pathology/staging comes back. We chose this place because it's very well known, and is set up with everything so that we can do everything in one place, nothing should have to be sent out.
If you pray, please say a prayer for Charlie.
Some of you may remember our wedding at Cypress Gardens in Florida. We had a few people from the rose forum attend. From Wedding
