One day at a time....

We did it. We gave in and splurged on a new bed. We bought a Tempurpedic with an adjustable base so John can have the option of sitting up and having his legs elevated when he is going through treatments. This purchase is an investment and is something we have needed for a long time. His comfort is the most important part. Tonight is the first night in our new bed and yes, we absolutely love it.  :)

It has been a pretty good day. It was a long day at work to be away from him, but the best part was coming home to him. There is a lot of anticipation surrounding the PET scan we have scheduled for this Friday. “PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is a powerful imaging technique that holds great promise in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, particularly cancer. A non-invasive test, PET scans accurately image the cellular function of the human body.” I found information on a medical website and I figured it would bring more clarity to what I am talking about. Again, from there…we will know the plan of attack a few days later. Monday, April 5th, will be results day. There are alternative treatments (vitamins) and second opinions (Mayo “type” clinics) we are looking into as well. Research, research, research. I hate the pain he has to endure day to day. I know he is fighting not to complain and to make light of everything, but I can see in his beautiful blues he is uncomfortable. I love him so much….one day at a time.

Something we cannot forget is the fact John’s father is going through this same fight. He has been fighting his own battle with cancer for the past five years, since John and I first started dating. He has gone through countless rounds of chemo and radiation and is still fighting hard and going strong. Knowing John, he will do the same as his father.

We are staying positive because we know we are not the only ones fighting this with us. I thanked family and friends in the previous post and I mean it in every single way. Thank you.
