Life's Carnival

Has anyone ever asked you what your "theme song" would be if you had one? Carrie Underwood has a song about life being a carnival ride ... that would be mine right now...

So my hubby and I are about a week in to digesting the news of his Cancer diagnosis. His surgery went well last week, but unfortunetly the CT showed that it had spread to below his left kidney. We head back to San Diego tomorrow to meet his Oncologist - so many questions swirling in my brain. Mike's been such a tough cookie this week - I'm so proud of him! (wish he'd stop worrying about not being out on rotation,though...errrg!) I know he's going to come through this with no issue....fortunetly Testicular Cancer is one of the most treatable & curable types of cancer to have....but I can't help but worry about how I'm going to keep his spirits up during chemo. I hope I will be the best friend he needs right now, and not just the "worried wife."


  1. Oh Missie, I am so incredibly sorry to hear. Stay strong and fight this thing head all are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Missie,
    I'm so sorry to hear about Mike's diagnosis. Stay strong, fight hard, and many of us will be thinking about you.

    Meighan and Jeff

  3. Thanks for all the support! I'm buying my hubby a mullet wig for when his hair falls out :-) We're definetly trying to keep a sense of humor about it all...but the prognosis is great, so we're counting our blessings on that!
