The tests just keep on coming

Monday, November 29, 2010
I never really believed anyone was ever tested, but I'm beginning to change my mind. First, we get pregnant and I'm fairly miserable. Then, I get sick and my organs begin to shut down. Next, we lose our baby. Five months later DH's best friend passes away. And now, DH has been diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Thankfully, the doctor feels like he caught it very early. He has surgery this Friday. We both feel confident that this will turn out just fine, but it's still scary. The big C word. No one ever wants to hear it. I can't help but shake my head as to why all these terrible things continue to plague us. I feel like this crazy universe really is testing us, but for what I don't know.

What I do know is I'm damn sure not gonna let it win (sorry for the language lol). I'm that stubborn. And if I have to hit everyone I know over the head with it, I'll make sure they know it too.

DH is officially out of school until after Christmas break. Since he won't be able to get up and move around very much, he's going to spend quality time working on his dissertation and enjoying his new favorite channel, the Science Channel, thanks to me ignoring his pleas not to have Dish Network installed. (tee hee hee)

I just find myself wondering if the war can ever be won. We've fought battle after battle this year and we're both tired, but I guess it's time to gear up and fight our next one. And fight we will.

  1. So sorry to hear this! Will surely keep DH in my prayers. Stay stubborn as always and don't take no for an answer. Others are watching how you handle these hardships and looking up to you. Nobody really understands why bad things happen to good people. Wish there was something I could do to help. Please let me know if there is. I always have a warm and inviting guest room in Lex.

  3. I'm very sorry to hear this.

    I know someone whose husband had the same thing, a few years ago. Thankfully he's fine now and didn't need chemo or anything.

    I will keep you guys in my thoughts!

  4. I'm so very sorry to hear this, and so very glad it was caught early. It does feel like sometimes the same people get dumped on over and over again, doesn't it? But glad to hear you will keep fighting.

  5. Oh boy... I am so sorry you have yet another hurdle. I am glad to hear that his cancer was detected early and that his Drs are being proactive!

    I am sorry the universe hasn't given you the break you need yet. It really is unfair. I hope for you and your family that 2011 will be a much brighter year.

  10. Wow. The punches just keep coming at you, don't they? My husband and I recently (this week actually) had to swallow a lump in our throats at the possibility of the C word entering our lives. Thankfully, the diagnosis was not cancer for us, but it is scary, and yet another hurdle that you and DH will endure, just taking it day by day. My thoughts and prayers go out to you both as he undergoes surgery on Friday.
