What's Ahead

Dennis continues to recover well from the surgery.  He will get his stitches out next week.  He is eager for this to happen as they are starting to pull.  The next couple of Mondays he has doctor's appointments for various aspects of preparation for the beginning of radiation and chemo.  They told us he will most likely start treatments either July 9th or 16th.

He is able to up and about more now but is stuck at home since I am back at work and he can't drive.  He still needs to rest a lot so in some ways this is OK.  So far he has not gotten too bored.

Here is a picture from a few nights ago.  One of our friends gave Dennis a short haircut to help blend in the area where they cut it to do the surgery and the rest of his hair.  I'm thinking it looks pretty good on him.  

Keep praying.  Pray that the side effects to his therapy are minimal but that it gets to the exact cells it needs to destroy.  Pray for us that we will keep our focus on our wonderful Savior who is walking this road with us.

  1. What a sweet picture! I'm praying for your family. I don't know you but every post I read takes me back to our own journey of brain cancer with my husband and two little ones (in 98!) FYI--before he starts radiation ask about having him monitored by an ENT during that time to minimize ear/hearing damage. We learned about that after my husband already finished treatment and he lost alot of hearing from it. But--after 18mos of chemo and all these years later he is still cancer free! You will get through this, God is able! Feel free to contact me if you need any support from a BTDT mom/wife. It's an interesting, hard journey to be on but you will see God in a way you never imagined.
