Back at it.


I loathe logging into this blog, and much prefer ignoring it (and the cancer) completely. We've had a very nice break from weekly treatments, (Trav got 2 weeks off!), weekly x-ray's, and the Doctors office in general.

If you live under a rock and don't already know, we were able to take an amazing trip to Spain where T served his mission, and seriously didn't think about cancer once the whole time we were gone. (Click here for pics of the trip.)

It did wonders for both my soul, and Trav's.

But now we are back in the real world, and all the crap that comes along with it.

Travis did really well on our trip, he had lots of energy, and felt pretty good. But since we've been home things haven't gone as well.

He is in a lot of pain in his rib, and his chest.
Pain to the point of waking up at 3 a.m. because it hurts so bad.
He hasn't really been able to sleep a full night since we've been back, and that is no bueno. (A little Spanish for ya....)

It's hard to get back to normal and have to face it all again. I swear after 3 years of this I'd should be used to it, but I just can't get over how hard it is to watch my husband be in pain.

It hurts my heart.

Anyhow, today he went in for a treatment and talked to the Dr. about his pain. He will have another fun scan on Monday so they can see why he is in so much pain, and so they can figure out how to treat it.

I'm praying, really hard, that they wont find anything new. The chest pain worries me a bit, because his chest usually only hurts on treatment days. But you never know, maybe it's the cold weather, or just overexertion from our trip.

Either way, we will know on Monday. And I'm asking again for prayers sent his way.

He's kind of awesome, so it really is worth your time.
I'll keep you posted.
